Hello there and happy Wednesday to you all! Sharing a layout I created for my Travelers Notebook with a special picture of a trip my youngest Son and Hubby took to Philmont Scout Ranch Last summer. This is their second trip but I don’t have many pictures of them together as my Hubby is usually the one taking pictures. So for this trip they travel by train from Michigan to New Mexico and spend 10 days hiking and camping in the mountains. They hike 100 miles and they love every step!
Of course I’m using Cabin Fever by Simple Stories for this very outdoorsy picture. And my own handwriting which is a big step outside my comfort zone but I’m determined to document these pictures.
Some of the cut aparts are layered here with fussy cut images and stickers.
I’m kinda obsessed with the tabbed topped labels with perfectly coordinating sentiments for this layout.
Little word stickers here for balance. I added a dash line and a doodle border to help frame the pages. I would never post a layout with pictures of other peoples kids…but sometimes you can’t avoid getting them in the shot so my tip for this is to use cut aparts or stickers to cover them up like I have here with the large explore sentiment. It looks intentional and removes the child from the image.
I used the Cabin Fever Collection from Simple Stories for this layout .
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
Hey there BoBunny Peeps! So much fun to be posting my first project here for 2017. I created my “1 Layout 3 Ways” with a generously donated picture of this sweetest little girl Liddy. She’s my BFF Kathy’s Granddaughter and she is just soooo adorable.
For layout (1) I’m using paper patterns from the Felicity Collection. I’ve added a light rubbing of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Rose then used the Brocade Stickable Stencil and Silver Contour Liner to add a subtle script pattern. Die cuts from the patterned paper, fussy cut clocks and elements from the Felicity Noteworthy set all layered to accent the picture.
Adding a border to the top and bottom for layout (2) and topping it off with a large section of fussy cut flowers.
Chipboard Stickers, stamped balloon, and additional elements from the Noteworthy package finish things off for layout 3.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) Ginny

Hey there paper Peeps. Today I’m sharing 1 layout 3 ways. This is a fabulous way to show the stages of design for a project that can be clean and simple all the way through fully decked out. Each step could represent a finished layout…but I am a more is better person so layout 3 is for sure right up my alley.
For the first step I layered many of the patterned papers from the Winter Wishes Collection with the fussy cut picture and used the Noteworthy elements to accent. I tattered the edges and highlighted them with Pentart Silver Antique Paste. Using silver cardstock helps to separate the patterns and coordinates well the snowy details. It’s really lovely at this stage….but more is better!!!
Two tags are tucked in behind and helps to bring the arrangement up into the top corner. With the Winter Fun Stickable Stencil and Primer Paste Gesso and Pentart Structure Paste I added the snowflake details layering them onto the background as well as the Noteworthy elements and tags.
And now with all the finishing touches it’s my favorite version. To give a frosty effect I added a generous amount of Sugar Glitter Paste on the tags and center frame section. The chipboard sentiment is a subtle accent finished with layers of coordinating embossing powders. Frosting Jewels helps to evoke movement. I’ve incorporated the Layered Chipboard Sticker to anchor the bottom of the pictures and to hide unfinished edges. Using the patterned papers I created flowers that match perfectly and are topped off with, Pentart 3D Balls and Sugar glitter. Last but not least a fine line of Pentart 3D powder to emulate snow. Special thanks to friend Missy for allowing me to use this picture of her gorgeous daughter taken before homecoming.

Hey there Peeps! I’m sharing my very first all digital layout today. I know I always say I really like to get my hands dirty while crafting and so I avoided digital scrapbooking. How can it be fun unless you’ve glued yourself to the table like I always do??? Let me tell you know..I am kicking myself for waiting because it was soooo much fun. And I can share them online for the grandparents who don’t want to get big bulky scrapbooks filling up their shelves. I used all digital images and papers from Crafty Secrets….a total mix and match. Andddd I still have my required elebenty hundred layers!
This is a pic of my youngest Son Jonathan receiving his Order of the Arrow Sash with the Boy Scouts. A very special honor among the troop and I’m so thrilled that all 3 of my boys have been initiated into the order. I used CD6 Vintage Christmas, CD1 Vintage Patterns and CD3 Typography. I hope I’ve inspired you to try digital scrapbooking..I’ll be making more layouts this way now that I know how much fun it is!!
Okay that’s all for me…wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
