YES I DID IT!!!!! I am so happy I finished my goal for the year!!! Yesterday I had thought I would not make it, but its done!! Made 4 of these layouts for the kids Disney albums, more still to go, but 103 is a nice start.
Ok, I know I am down to the wire, 3 more to go today by Midnight. These 4 were mostly done a while ago just didn't have them uploaded. These were made with MME and Basic Grey, always my favorite paper. Stay tuned to see if I can finish 3 more today with a house full of kids!!
This is a layout I made for sale. But it didn't sell, so it became mine!! I knew these pics would be perfect for it!!!! I may add orange hair to the bear to match kiddo. The paper is from, believe this, Wal-mart.
So here is from my third child's end of year preschool picnic. I forget the paper's name. But it is a CTMH Layout. From the Cherish book. I find them easy to resort to when I like to scrapbook swiftly. I think the papers really made this layout bright and I even popped some of the pictures to add some dimension too. Another CTMH Swift Layout from the Cherish book. I used my Slice Machine to cut out and do paper piecing.
I am having a very bad week, so to help; I scrapped, and scrapped I did!!! These layouts are of Christmas 2003. I was able to cut down my 5 inch stack of photos by half; who doesnt take tons of pics at Christmas.
I know you are looking at the photos thinking, "Hey I can count and that is not 20 - 2 page layouts", well, I only took one photo of each set. Set?? When I first began scrapping I decided on the events that all the children are a part of, they will get their own page; so each of the layouts above I made 5 of.
Yeah that means, 20 layouts, 40 pages, one full bottle of fabri-tac (Large), 5 packs of BASIC GREY;fruitcake paper, 320 photos used, and I did it all on two large, new tables ( Heather sorry yours is covered up, hehehehe did you expect anything different) and in two days!!! woo hoo, it was such a big under - taking, that I have been ignoring.... But needed doing. Off to go put them all in the albums.
As Heather mentioned earlier, we had a challenge to do between us. As you may have noticed mine does not look like hers; that is because this is actually our second challenge. It based on a sketch. The paper is all K& CO and Bazzill. I will do the first challenge which is a paper challenge, later. :)
I did a duplicate of this one so I could send it to my MIL. So I have now idea what this paper is called. I got in the clearance isle at JoAnn's. And I scraplifted the layout from a magazine. Whoo Hoo Branching out!
Layout # 25 is a CTMH Layout, done a year ago and I just slapped on some photos from the recent father/son Campout. All products are CTMH on this one since it was a Club Layout. The paper is CTMH Sarsaparilla.
Here is a scraplift. I am not too happy with the background paper, but the rest I like, though I think I should have done the black swirls in dark Brown. The Paper is Making Memories Chelsea's Place and all the cut outs were done on my slice. And some Basic Grey Buttons.
Here is one I finished this morning from Last nights CTMH Club Night. Pictures from a 2003 trip to CA. This is paper I got from Michaels in the bins. We went to Buffalo Bills Grave and they had a place where you can dress up. So I had the pictures done in Sepia to give it that old time feel. Here is my challenge project that Ann and I were to do. Requirement was to have at least one big circle. So here is mine. And look, it isn't a CTMH Formula layout. I am starting to branch out a little. There will be three more layouts from the Buffalo Bill adventure.
Good Morning, ... well I guess its been morning for a while now, but the sun is up and we are still working away. I can't remember the last time I stayed up all night!! At least its for a good reason. This LO is made from My Mind's Eye. I really enjoyed creating this one!!
Layout # 15- "Yeah It's That Good. Not sure what paper this is, but the stickies are from CTMH, Rough N' Tumble and some from Ann's stash.
Layout # 16- "Home Sweet Home" Paper is from the racks at Michael's.
Layout # 17- American Sparkle (1) I made one of these for my mom. Paper is CTMH-Blue Ribbon. Title Cut from my Slice (c). I added some cute 4th of July stuff from Ann's stash (thanks again, Ann). They are from Oriental Trading.
Layout #18- American Sparkle(2)
Layout #19 "Scenic Byways" Not sure about this paper either. Borrowed some stamps from Ann and leaf punch outs.
Layout #20 "7 Things TO Celebrate. CTMH Paper- Good Times. I also used the Level 2 "My Stickease" from the same set. Cut Out letters with Slice Machine, Noteworthy Card.
Layout #21- "I Love Grandma" Here is my MIL. CTMH Paper- "Perfect Day" Level 2 "My Stickease" used as well as the new CTMH Rub Ons, CTMH Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon.
As you can tell, I am not a chronological scrapper, I scrap what I want, when I want, I just put them in the right albums when I am done. Later I will reorganize the album pages, until then I am happy with this way of doing it!! Paper used is from Melissa Frances.
With this one I found the paper I wanted to use, located some photos to match, then created it. The background paper is Basic Grey - blush, and the rest is ....at this time.... my favorite paper, K&CO.
So this is Layout number 14. It is CTMH Paper. Can't remember the name of the paper but it is from last summer or the summer before. Some prima flowers, buttons. Simple, but just wanted to get it done.
Well, H and I have decided since her hubby is off camping with the boys, that we would stay up all night and scrap, so there will be a few more additions this weekend. Bazzill and Sandylion paper used on this one!!!
I can't believe its been so long since I have done a Layout, man am I behind!!!, BUT I am still planning on getting all 100 done. I may have some long nights ahead though :). I scraplifted this from Basic Grey.
ok, so here is one of my first non- CTMH layouts. I scraplifted it from one of the scrapbooking magazines, Memory Makers, I think. So mostly it is scraps from my stash. Some CTMH. Gees I need to wipe the finger prints of of that photo! I wish I had added more color to the leaves, but I think I can go back and fix that with some markers.
I hand drew the tree, it came out ok, but I think I will try Ann's tree technique next time I make a tree. I had some leaf stamps from the $1 section at Target, Clock ones that I got from Archivers, and the owl was cut from my MM Slice Machine. I had to add some details for it though. I chose this picture because holding a sleeping little one is getting to be a bit of rarity this days with my youngest being 2. I put in some journaling to be pulled out from behind the photo. The title is also cut our with my Slice Machine.
