I've been in Ohio for the Holidays, visiting with my family, but I've been able to scrapbook with my sister while I've been here. We make it an annual event! It's always a great time and we get to gossip about all the happenings and laugh about the most random of things.
Today, I'd like to share a layout (or two) I created this past week. My first share is a layout I created using the December 1st Stuck?! sketch.
Here's the sketch...
and my take on the sketch. I twisted things around a bit, but I was really in love with the banners, so this was my interpretation.
I was also able to create these layouts while on Holiday. I have more to share, but still need to take some photos of my layouts, so I'll share them later this week.
The first one was created while my sis and I were scrapbooking at Archivers. I got a fun little Fuji Instax camera for Christmas (can you say 'INSTANT' love?). I took the pictures while we were cropping and scrapped them right then and there. So FUN!!
My last share was created using a great little technique I found in a recent Somerset Studio's magazine (and can't remember the exact issue - I'll have to get the information from my sister). The idea is to layer several pieces of paper and photos on a photo copier/scanner to create fun, unique paper. I played around with this, using sewing pattern tissue paper, vintage photos of my mom, and patterned paper from October afternoon. I layered the 3 papers to create this awesome 8.5 x 11 unique paper, which I then embellished with some other fun items..
I plan on playing around with this idea some more to see what other inspiration I can find using this great technique.
I head back to Utah tomorrow - bright and early - UGH!!! But I still have a few more days before I go back to work in January, so lots more crafty time!!! :)
Talk to you soon! Happy Crafting!!!
