Scrapbooking with autumn colours

Hello! Today I have some pretty exciting news to share – I had the opportunity to be the guest artist on Shimelle’s blog.

I created a scrapbook layout with the third challenge 03: Scrapbook with autumnal colours.

Here is a sneak close up shots where I actually included real leaves I collected.

Scrapping photobooth photos

Hello! Today I want to share a layout that is a continuation of me scrapbooking memorabila. If you missed my previous post, you can check out here, the memorabilia I collected from the last wedding I attended. Photobooth pictures are incredibly popular at weddings; my friends and I tend to have lots of crazy fun taking photos. I love scrapping photobooth photos because these photos are so fun.

My layout is inspired by this sketch designed by Mandy on Sketch N Scrap.

July 15th SNSI rotated the sketch 90° to the left to scrapbook my photos. July 15th SNS

This is my layout –

Scrapping photobooth picture scrapbook layout

I selected some papers from Shimelle True Stories collection. I chose a black cardstock as the base of my scrapbook layout this time instead of white. I knew I wanted to add some gold to this layout so black would be perfect with the gold.

I started by splattering gold paint drops from my paint brush randomly. Then I adhered the papers. I did add a 1.5″ x 11.75″ strip of patterned paper horizontally to ground the whole layout together. For my photobooth pictures, I actually cut them all apart and arranged it to form a rectangle design so that it fits better in my scrapbook layout.

Here are some close ups pictures of the layout:Scrapping photobooth picture scrapbook layout

I fussy cut some bits and pieces from the same paper pad to create my embellishments. I punched some stars from some gold glittered paper as well.

I created my title  “The crazies” – a fun title since we had some pretty crazy poses and props for the photos. I used the American Crafts gold thickers for my title.

Scrapbooking memorabilia from an event

Hello everyone! Happy July 1st – It’s Canada Day today so Happy Canada Day to those in Canada! I am looking forward to play some fireworks tonight yay!

For this month, I want to share how I scrapbook memorabilia from an event especially weddings. As all memory keepers, I am sure we collect a lot of stuff. I mentioned it before I love collecting the invitations, the menu, the decor little pieces, etc.

I attended a wedding recently – and I saved everything. I had the invitation, table information, menus and photobooth pictures.  I know if I don’t scrapbook these and put it in the album, it will be in my memory box and be forgotten.

My layout is inspired by this Sketch #108 designed by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap:

I created this layout –


I modified the sketch inspiration a little bit since I am scrapping memorabilia. It really doesn’t need much on the layout because the cards were pretty big already (5″x6.5″) so it occupy most of the space already. I just love the multicolors on the page but mainly I focused on the pinks and orangey-yellows.

“Hello Mr Shark” Scrapbook Layout

I saw a post by Jen Stokes on Facebook on Saturday that she was doing a giveaway on her YouTube channel to celebrate 500 subscribers and it was a layout challenge; we can either scraplift her layouts or make a layout inspired by her previous layouts. I thought it was a cool and fun challenge. You can check out her blog: Scraps by Jen or her youtube channel: Scrapsbyjen. She is one talented lady!

I scraplifted one of her earlier layouts done in March. Totally loved the diagonal stripes. I thought it was a great idea to use up some papers in my stash. Her original layout can be found here: Scraps by Jen.

This is my layout:

 Hello Mr Shark aquarium scrapbook layout

It was a photo of my husband’s grandmother looking at the sharks while we were at the aquarium. She is 87 years old this year and still quite healthy. She loved this trip! Her favorite TV channel is the Oasis channel. She loves watching nature, and animals and wildlife and etc. While she was there, she was quite fascinated with the aqualife. She kept saying ” oh i saw this on tv!” I have never been to the Toronto Aquarium before either; I was quite fascinated too. LOL

I just loved how cute this layout is with the title and the stripe background! So thanks Jen for the inspiration.

Here is the close up picture of the stitched title:

While I was visiting Jennifer’s blog, I saw one of her more recent layouts and totally love it and I scraplifted another one! It was a layout she did with the punched out circles with no photo; you can see it here. I wanted to do a layout of the aquarium tickets so it is perfect. I just use my leftover papers from my earlier layout from all the diagonal stripes. Super great!

I made a pocket from vellum so I can still see through the tickets. Loved the tickets; it had different marine life printed on each ticket. I added foam tape to alternate circles for more dimension.

Supplies used:

  • Recollections My Favorite Things Paper Pad
  • Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses alphabet stickers
  • Basic Grey Marjolaine alphabet stickers
  • Red heart gems
  • We r Memory Keepers Sew Easy Script Template
  • Recollections washi tape

Scrapbook Memorabilia – Aquarium guidebook

Hello, I am back today with another scrapbook layout share.

As a scrapbooker, I really do keep everything and save everything! For example, saving ticket stubs/movie tickets, paying surcharge to get the nice printed tickets at a show/musical/event, boarding passes, wedding invitations, wedding menu, the list can go on! I also like to buy and keep programs or guide books at musicals/shows/museums.Those items that I collect definitely will live in my scrapbook album.

I bought a guidebook about the aquarium couple weeks ago and I wanted to scrapbook it.

Here is my layout:

I am actually quite pleased with the layout because the supplies I used are something I had in my stash forever and did not know quite how to use it. I used those fish brads and the aqua life ribbon which fit the theme of the layout perfectly. I made the pocket for the guidebook out of cardstock. You can easily slide it out from the page protectors to read.

This layout came together very quickly. I used a sketch over at My Scraps & More Sketches, to help with my process. You can check out their blog for more inspiration.

Here are some close ups of the embellishments I used:

  • October Afternoon Peacock Blue Sticky Keys
  • Recollections Fish Brads
  • Scattered Straw Distress ink (to color in the motifs)
  • Kaisercraft Rock Pool ribbon
