Fall - Kayana

This is my grand daughter, Kayana. She is such a happy and imaginative child.

I used several things that were siting on my desk for this layout. The heart was pale pink and yellow, so I inked it to match. I used one little strip of ribbon for this layout and tucked a bit of it into each cluster. The tiny leaves are from Jolee stickers. I pulled them apart and inked them so they would work. The word embrace came from the bottom of the Love piece in the next picture. I like tucking little pieces into my layout that would normally be thrown away. 

This old slide piece was from a kit I picked up at a yard sale over a year ago. I embellished it to match the layout. The word embrace in the last picture came from this Love paper.

The title is from a some old glitter stickers. I am going to get my stash down this year.
I used two full sheets of paper and scraps on this layout.

Autumn Leaves - Vincent and Kayana

Caitie's kids playing in the leaves. This page is for Vincent. I scraplifted a layout of my own. The striped paper behind the picture of Vincent is a tag that I cut in order to make it look like it went behind the whole picture.

I am trying to use up my stash again. The tiny leaves and corn are Jolee stickers that Cayli and Brandon gave me. They were a wreath, but I pulled them apart to make them work for this layout. Don't be afraid to take what you have an alter it to work for your layout.

 I used two full sheets of paper on this and scraps.

Newport Beach Brothers - Matthew and Brandon

A few years ago, Brandon and Cayli came to California with us. Matt is quite attached to this brother.

I stamped on this layout for the first time in a while. I need to do that more often. I used versamark clear ink and brushed Perfect Pearls over it. Remember Perfect pearls? I'm going to dig deep this year and use stuff up before I shop again. The peach and pink mat is scraps torn and pieced together to give it texture. The title is two different sets of letter stickers. I inked the bottom ones to make them match better.

 I used  rub-ons and ink to make my old embellishments match my layout. I am never afraid to mix and match all product.
 I stamped the circles and added them to the tag to pull them into a third spot on the layout.

I used two 12X12 sheets, one 8X8 sheet, and scraps on this layout.

Love is Family - Matt, Me, and Blaine

These pictures were taken at the LDS Temple on Oahu. Yes, my husband's head is missing. He doesn't like his picture on the internet. His head is intact in the actual layout and in real life :). I inked the stickers that spell family to make it match the layout.

 The title is a tag from clothing. I like to use things you might not ordinarily use in a scrapbook. The flower is fussy cut from a photo that I took at the temple grounds that day specifically to use this way. The dragon fly is cut fussy cut from patterned paper. I have doilies, a feather, an old metal embellishment, and a crocheted flower in this cluster. None of these items came together in a kit, but they all work.

My daughter, Caitie, gave me some chipboard embellishments, and this sun worked great for this layout. I used a metal charm that I picked up at a yard sale in a bag of jewelry.

The dolphin also came in that bag of jewelry. I sanded it down a bit. Scrapbook supplies are all around if you look for them them.

I used 3 sheets of 12X12 paper and scraps on this layout.

Callie Turns Three

Callie-bug turned three about five years ago. I will always be behind on my scrapbooking.

I put a picture of the cake on the tag behind the title. It was a castle cake decorated with the Disney princesses. I used a giant doily on this layout. I picked up a huge box of them from a yard sale.

The title is placed on the chipboard that came in the package of princess stickers. I also used a tag from clothing. My kids save pretty clothing tags for me.

 You can see more of the sticker packaging on these two clusters.

I used two sheets of  12X12 paper and scraps on this layout.

I need my Daddy - Aria and Brandon

Aria has adored her daddy since the beginning. She is lucky to have two amazing parents.

Brandon and Cayli gave me this paper. As you can see, Aria calmed down as soon as her daddy started talking to her and touched her. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on this and added another layer of flowers and rhinestones because sometimes a girl needs a little sparkle.

 Close up of the flowers cut from the border punch.

 I love the softness a doily adds to a layout. I used some super old glitter stickers for the title.

I used one sheet of 12X12 paper and scraps on this layout.

Baby Rebel

This little dog has brought a lot of love into our lives.

This layout is simple and doesn't have a lot of embellishment. The background paper is glitter embossed. The title is made from foam letter stickers.

I used a tag from clothing - it is the heartsoul brand, but it works on this layout. I also used an acrylic stamp to make the true friend embellishment. It is placed on another clothing tag. The 3 things I love about you is from a sheet of Valentine paper that is cut apart embellishments. You can use holiday paper for non-holiday layouts.

I used three sheets of 12X12 paper and scraps for this layout.
