2019 Review: A Wedding

Weddings are such a big event in any family. Last year, my nephew married his long time love in a picture perfect ceremony that put a smile on everyone’s face. As with most weddings, there were lots of photos taken. While it’s nice to think about scrapbooking all the photos, for me, it’s just not practical. I had to utilize my best photo sorting skills to choose the photos that told the story from my perspective. Not to say I’ll never use any of the others … you never know what fun projects are my future!

2019 in Review: July 4th

I’ve been in full blown scrappin’ mode recently. {woo-hoo} It’s been so fun reviewing photos from 2019, then digging through the amazing stash I am blessed to have and decide how I’ll tell the stories.

For my July 4th memories, I pulled out supplies I bought from Scrapbook Generation a few years ago. I’m a sucker for anything red-white-blue and these papers really fit the bill. I added a little stamping, and bling here and there for pizzazz, and just like that, the story all came together!

When I need to kick start my scrap booking, I go to photos, an event, or theme that make me really happy. Doesn’t matter what it is, as long as that happiness-factor prompts my memory into story telling mode. Fourth of July happens to be my favorite holiday so it was easy for me to gain momentum, complete my layouts and get the story told. From there, I just go to the next story, and the next, and the next …. before I know it, I’m one happy scrapper!

“Keep Calm and Scrap On” friends!

Crafty Peeps / SOS Challenge

I haven’t participated in a scrapbook challenge in years and it’s one of things I’ve wanted to get back to in 2020. One of my got-to blogs for challenges was always Scrap Our Stash and I was so happy to see those ladies are still at it!

Here’s my entry for January’s Bingo Challenge:

I used the center vertical column on the bingo card: Journal Card = tabbed card with date tucked behind photo, Circle = cut-out behind photo, Stamp = title is hand stamped, stamped date on card tab, and Flower = accents
