Joan's Scrapbook Album / Guest Book

Here's an album I created for my coworker Joan's 60th birthday.  It's a combination of a scrapbook and guest book.  I used a chocolate coloured chipboard album from Bo Bunny and all of the patterned paper I used was from DCWV Mariposa stack.  I used some Martha Stewart and Fiskars border punches to dress up some of the edges.  Cricut cartridges used include Ashlyn's Alphabet and Graphically Speaking.  Unfortunately, I didn't leave enough blank spots for Joan's friends and family to sign as there were around 200 people at her party!  Some blank card stock pages were added after just so there was enough room for everyone to sign!

Floral Scrapbook Layout

Here's another recent layout from a kit from the Stamp Shack.  I'm not sure what pictures I'll use on this layout yet, but I love the girly floral papers and the dimensional floral embellishments.  It will work great with pictures of my daughter, who's a girly girl!

Honey Bees Dance Layout

Here's a dance layout I made from another Stamp Shack kit.  I used photos from my daughter's dance recital for this layout.  One thing that was unique to this one, was I did some paper weaving, which I don't think I've done since primary school!  It was actually a little tricky, but I do like the end result!  This layout also involved a lot of cutting... most of the flowers were hand cut.

Summer Beach Layout

Here is another layout from a Stamp Shack kit.  I think this one has to be my favourite so far!  All of the patterned paper is from Fancy Pants Designs (one of my favourites)!  I added a lot of bling to the layout with lots of stickles, glossy accents, and even some Tattered Angels Glitter Mist (lime green colour used over green polka dot paper).  The waves were cut from a sheet of patterned paper, as were the flip flops (this part was pretty time consuming)!  This was such a fun layout to create!
