Yesterday was (inter) National Scrapbook Day so I decided to take part, for a change. I've had a few layout ideas for sometime that I hadn't gotten around to doing so I decided that would be a good project to work on. I am creating a 'memory book' of my daughter's elementary school days. I managed to get 4 done! Now, sure, they aren't up to my usual standards but they'll do for quick layouts. I still have about 6 left to take me to the end of grade 4 so I'll work on those later but 'life' always seems to get in the way of my 'fun'. ;-)
This is the first one I did… Ally's before school years. Used some stamping, some stick on letters and some flowers. I even embellished a bit with the Heidi Swapp acrylic hearts and some colour shine/magic.
The second one was Kindergarten. This was a real quick one. I used my fav gelatos on some die cut letters to give it the kids colouring feel. Some hand printed letters, stick on ones and some stamps finished it off.
Then the third was for grade one. I used some HS colour shine to make a colourful background and banner, then finished it off with some stencilling.
Last was the grade one classroom pic. Pretty basic, but it's done and I contributed 4 layouts to the Instagram challenge.
I love to scrapbook, make cards and other handmade paper 'stuff'.
