First is this one, the one I did start to finish. It's from pictures only 2 weeks old which excites me a lot to get stuff documents so quickly. I used a variety of papers I had stored under "boy/kids themed" and had had for a long time. Another thing that excites me... using up my stash.
This double pager has TONS of pictures on it, all mainly 2x2 or slightly smaller. It went through about 5 "renderings" as I wasn't happy with it. I tried it with a flip up, I tried it on different backgrounds, etc and then went, screw it, I like lots of colour despite the busy-ness of so many pictures and NOW I like it. This is mainly an older Crate Paper collection called Season. I love buying the 12x12 collections and then it's almost one stop shopping for paper and embellishments. There is (of course for those that know me) Thickers on it too.
This last one is from my kids cross country runs this fall. It was really (REALLY) hard to get decent pictures but with some creative cropping it doesn't look half bad. I used my stash and these are all different brands but do know the top left and top far right are Basic Grey (Wander). I started a new 12x12 patterned paper organizational system during my recent scrapbook room reno and it's really helped me use up paper.
I'll be posting pics of my scrap room reno soon. Just putting on the last minute touches and waiting on a poster.
Take some time and do something scrappy today. (It'll make you smile)
