Heather's #10 Layout Part A

So here is a one pager. I have another one I am working on so, It will still even out to two pages. Just not meant to be together. Ok, So I have no idea what this paper is. Should have looked before I came downstairs. Anyhow, I do know I got it from Archivers the day after Thanksgiving in their bins of monthly kits. They were a great clearance. So here is DS #1 after his wolf den went to home depot and made an art easel.
Everything came from the kit, but the stamps are from Close to My Heart

Heather's Layout #9

Yeah!!!!!! I did it, I cropped it in Infranview. Now you don't have to see my feet looking down at it!
Ok, this is DS #1 and my DD's school recital for their one day a week school in Dec. We homeschool so they go to an options school for electives on Fridays. The Paper is the Making Memories Fa La La. I used my MM Slice to cut out the Noel. I use some sparkly stick ons and some Close to My Heart Liquid Glass on the page. It has the Coordinating FaLaLA flowers and Brads and some other flowers from Michaels. I also used a stamp with some CTMH Cranberry Ink.

Heather's 6, 7, and 8 Layouts

This one is Child #3's Birthday. It is the Basic Grey Paper (forgot what it is called). I used the Matching stamps and stickers that came with the pack. The buttons and waxy Flax is from Close to My Heart. I also used some Bazzil card stock.

This paper is the Making Memories Fa La La line, with coordinating flowers and some Prima Flowers. It is also the coordinating Brads. So it is Child #2 with Santa and all the kids on Page two.

Here is Child #3 who recently injured his eye pretty severely. The paper is some generic I got in the clearance at JoAnn's. I used my fabulous Slice Machine to cut out the stars and the Arrows.
All the layouts are from Close to My Heart's Imagine or Cherish Layout Books. I have yet to really venture beyond using their layout "formulas." They definitely are perfect for beginner scrapbookers and makes it very easy. Sort of like my comfort zone. Perhaps this next week I will attempt to lift a layout from somewhere else as I am probably light years away from designing my own.
Love my toes at the bottom of my picture? I hate shoes.

Heather's 4-5

I got these done last week, but was trying to figure out that infranview and I got frustrated, but that was last week and I just wanted to get them posted so I wouldn't forget. I have another one that I will try and get through the the Infranview.
Happy Tuesday.

ANN's #4-5 Layouts

Yeah I know these 2 Layouts look like the last one. It seems in the beginning, I decided each child would have their own scrapbooks. Now after years with little done I am thinking... "What have I gotten myself into". Oh well, there will be no fighting at my funeral :)

ANN's #3 Layout

Here is number 3. I find it really hard to create with BOY themed layouts. I work better with flowers, flourished, etc, but there is no way I can put that in a teenager boy's scrapbook. Patterned paper by Daisy D's and My Mind's Eye.

Heather # 3 Layout

Ok, I haven't been able to figure out how to crop with that infranview, Ann. But here is number 3. I used a Making Memories Kit that I got on clearance the day after Thanksgiving from Archivers, I think it is called Winter. I cut out the 4 inch letter and the gingerbread boy from my Slice, with the Fa La La Cartridge. I even sewed on this layout. Not sure if you can tell that from the picture. My DS#'s name is blocked, but nothing really personal is in the journaling. Just wished I had remembered the red rick rack on the green strip on page one, but otherwise I am really pleased with it.

Heather's #2 Layout

Here is a simple layout for my oldest son's Rank Advancement. He earned his Bobcat and Tiger at the same time. I think I may redo the Advancement title as my hubby was using the main , and computer. I can't stand my handwriting. The Paper is the K&Co Cub Scout Pack. I used some misc brads, Coordinating Tiger Cub Stickers from K&Co, and lettering cut from my new MM Slice machine.

Heather's #1 Layout

Ok, once again, let me reiterate my novice Scrapbooking abilities. Ann, you are going to have to show me how to take a better picture of my layouts. So I am trying to get caught up with 2008. Here is Child #4 and his first haircut last Jan. The paper is Close To My Heart, Rough and Tumble and then there are the Jolee's Stickers.

ANN's #2 Layout

Since the first LO went so quick, I decided to do another today. It just so happens that I only have one photo taken at this time. I always make a two page LO, but with one photo that is not gonna happen this time. Paper is K&CO McKenna line, fancy pants stamps, and the paper rick rack was made by me. Check out my ebay store if you would like some, papermajekbyann.

ANN's #1 Layout

This Layout was sitting around waiting for just the right photos. This year I remembered to take the kind of photos I would like. I think it turned out great. Its made with Cosmo Cricket paper, lace, Prima flowers, charms, ribbons, etc. Each stocking is hand pieced paper.
