Scrapbook Nerd April Kit

I got to play with some fun stuff in this months Scrapbook Nerd kit, including the October Afternoon Daily Flash and the Echo Park All About A Boy collections.  First up I made a grid design layout using the 3x3 square cards from the Daily Flash Collection.

I then printed some photos out in the same size and mixed them in together.

I added some cute Dear Lizzy buttons to the centre of the cameras.

I love this fun and easy grid design and used it again for another layout.

Thanks for stopping by.

Treat Boxes

One of my favorite ways to use up old paper is to make some super easy and quick treat boxes for my son's classmates.  I used some older Dear Lizzy paper to whip up a few of these boxes that we can fill up with some treats and hand out for my son's friends.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the boxes and then added some stickers and die cuts to finish them off.  Fill them with a few little treats and you have a cute little Easter treat.

Easter Treat Bags

I found some cute little bags at the Target dollar spot and wanted to use them to make some Easter treat bags. 
I die cut the title and bunny with my Silhouette Cameo and glued them to the bag.

I used the sweet Day Dreamer collection from Dear Lizzy.  I added some of the pretty buttons from this collection for the little bunny tails.

I am going to fill them with some sweet treats and give them to my son's dance instructors for Easter.

More pages done!

I love that I am getting Linden's Scrapbook Portfolio caught up finally!  I did a few more layouts last week and finally got around to taking pictures.  They aren't the best as I find I get a lot of glare from the protectors.
This is the first layout in the album, Linden's first play.  It was a local production and there was an ad in the paper for kids to try out for parts.  We went and Linden got two parts, one was the little boy and the other part was an elf. 

This layout is from last summer's production of Aristocat's put on by Studio West Dance and Tracy Neff.  Linden had to try out and ended up being Thomas O'malley the alley cat.  He was awesome and the whole show was amazing.  I had originally done this 8.5x11 layout and loved it so much added it to a 12x12 cardstock added a title and used it for this book.
All the kids really did a great job singing and dancing.

 I ended up with so many photos I needed to do an extra pocket page.

Only a few more layouts to go and I will be caught up.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Grandma's

It is very rare I can get a photo of my boys with both of their Grandma's.  We quickly grabbed them and took this photo after we had Tea at the Empress.  I love it!

I used the Maggie Holmes collection and lots of fun embellishments.

I layered some cut out paper, the fabric frame, chipboard and the rosette.

I am so thankful we took the time to grab this photo.

Thanks for stopping by.

After doing several layouts and some PL/365 pages with the Maggie Holmes collection I used what I had left to make a few cards.  The first one is a more feminine card and I used the beautiful chipboard flower as the focal point.

The second card is more masculine and I added some gold touches.

Thanks for stopping by.
