I am trying so hard to give myself Sunday's off. It's something I desperately need physcially… emotionally… spiritually… creatively… and it's really the one afternoon a week I can scrapbook. This makes three Sunday's straight that I've had creative time, and it feels so good.
First, 3 more layouts using that awesome Studio Calico goodness:
I've ended up using those photos from our Valentine's shoot a whole lot, but they're perfect for more moment/personality type layouts. The title pocket holds photos of more of Hanna's projects that she made in her online class.
Love those K and Co flowers. And look – I even used a stamp! I tend to be rather stamp challenged =)
Another one using those Valentine's photos. Again, though, it was just perfect for capturing some thoughts about this past year (and I typed the journaling directly on the photo before sending it to the printer). Still not 100% sure how I feel about the red brads, but I've changed them out half a dozen times and they're the ones I'm happiest with.
Yep – more from that same shoot and the Studio Calico kit (plus a few random stickers). And the colors don't look so wonky in real life – I've got to focus on getting better photos of my layouts since we can't find drivers to update my ancient scanner to Windows 7.
So totally happy with the way this one turned out! One of those capturing the personality type layouts.
And a two pager using some October Afternoon of Hanna's birthday party:
Hello, white space! Simple, fun, and I'm kind of obsessed with those funky, handcut, distressed flowers right now. I'm also really happy with the "bones" of the layout (based on a Pagemaps sketch). It's one I can certainly see myself using over and over.
10 layouts in the last 3 weeks – that's more than I got done in all of 2009! The only issue is that I now have several hundred layouts to get into albums. Remember when I took them all out of the post-bound albums last year? That project has been a little bit…er…a whole lot stalled. I've got to get working on it again soon!
