It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is Pink Paislee "Turn the Page".
I love the hexagon print in this collection and wanted it to make a bold statement on my page. So I decided to fussy-cut it (although this wasn't too fussy at all!) and use it as a lead-in to my layout and also a place for my long title. From there, I cut 12" strips in a variety of widths from the remaining patterns to create a place for my photos to rest.

The inspirational chipboard pieces are what really led me to my photos. I had a goal to beat 2 hours in a half marathon event and at this race, I did it. "Trust the Timing of Your Life" and "Believe You Can" pretty much sum it up!

Look What's Cooking!

Friday, November 10, 2017

Hello again! Today I have a layout featuring a collection from Carta Bella called "Welcome Home". It's one of the November Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom.
I used the Freaky Fast Formula to create this page. I layered several of the cuts to the left and then worked my photos toward the right. This collection from Carta Bella has a very warm and home-y feel to it. The "homemade" tag made me think of home-cooking which drew me to these photos. The colors in this collection really complimented them nicely, don't you think? I used a few die-cuts in my fotm kit and also added some stickers from the embellishment kit. I love how it turned out!

Hello Fall

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Are you ready for some autumn love? Well, I have just the layout then!
This page features "A Perfect Autumn" from Echo Park. It's just one of the four November FOTM kits from The ScrapRoom...and also probably my favorite 🍂
As a runner, I get out in the elements nearly every day and fall here in Oregon has been spectacular this year. I take a lot of photos while I'm out to share on social media. Sometimes I scrap them too. So when I saw these papers, I knew just what photos I wanted to use. The yellow leaves and my blue jacket...this collection was MADE for my photos, right? 

Echo Park does not disappoint with this one---so perfect for scrapping all those fall photos. I love how they paired the orange, yellow, red and browns with the turquoise blue. It just makes everything pop. They really complimented my photos nicely and I loved adding the cute woodsy animals to my page.

The design for my layout was inspired by a sketch I found at PageMaps. It's one of the October 2017 sketches and you can find it HERE.

Our Running Adventure

Monday, November 6, 2017

HELLO and welcome to November!
It's time for a new round of Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom. First up is this kit featuring American Crafts, the "Star Gazer" collection by Dear Lizzy.
This collection from American Crafts had a nice variety of prints to play with. The theme of the collection led me to these photos. Although we are not star gazing (it's actually early morning), the photos are dark with silhouette images which feels more like sunset than morning! But, if you think about it, the sun is a star, right? The dark blue and the star print played well into my photos as did the flair and some of the die-cuts. It totally worked!

The design for my layout was inspired by a sketch I found at PageMaps. It's one of the October 2017 sketches and you can find it HERE.

Sweet Tastes of Home

It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is Bella Blvd "Mind Your Manners".
Bella Blvd never dissapoints with their bright colors and fun prints. I was inspired by the chipboard and die-cut pieces that drew me close to home, eventually landing on these photos of making hand-dipped strawberries with our boys.

Wrestling Buddies

Hey there!
 I'm here with another Flavor of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom today.
This one features a collection from PinkFresh called "Boys Fort".
Putting this one together was so easy. I used the bolder prints as a base for my photos then took another piece with circles on it, punched some out and used them as supplemental embellishments. There were lots of great die-cuts and puffy stickers (from the embellishment kit) to use as well, contributing to the playful theme of my page. This kit was more fun to play with than I even anticipated! I think I want more 

I pulled a few items from my stash to complete the page --- a bit of washi tape, some mist for splattering the background, alphabet stickers and chipboard letters. The design is my own inspiration.

Saving the World...

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Hello again! Today I have a layout featuring a collection from American Crafts called "Glitter Girl". It's one of the October Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom.
This turned out to be the perfect collection for this photo of a bunch of scrapbooking friends out on our annual shopping trip to the craft store! I love the little credit card looking embellishment which actually became the driving force behind my theme. The bright colors and variety of prints made putting this together so much fun. As I was trying to decide what to do with the title, I saw this die-cut speech bubble that said "saving the world"...the light bulb went off and it was a done deal from there. Love, love, love this FOTM kit!

 The design for my layout was inspired by a sketch I found in the September 2017 collection of PageMaps.
