Scrapbooking in the New Year

I finally sat down to really push through my "scrapper's block" the other day. It took a lot of false starts on the first page before I had something that I was satisfied with, but once I finished it I was quite happy with the results and ready for the next layout.

On Saturday I finished the two layouts pictured below, and a whole bunch from my WITL-August at the crop on Friday. I kept the momentum going on Sunday and got a good chunk of my mini for this week done.

Layout #1...photographs from Veronica's wedding in Mexico. I added some splashes of paint and ink, and used a Balzer Designs stencil on the background (and some Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink). And I've started sewing on my layouts again. My machine is giving  me a hard time, but I'm trying to work through it.

Layout #2...at the Tulum ruins in Mexico. I've also been going back through my old papers, finding some gems while I'm in there. The background here is old Basic Grey (still one of my favourite lines ever).
I finished a third layout on the weekend...I posted it on Flickr. Nothing like a Creative Type challenge to get the creative juices flowing.

I'm going to print up the last of my 2011 photos, scrapbook those guys as per usual, and then move on to something new for 2012...that post is coming up on the 12th!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday...


  1. I love these pages, especially the wedding ones where you added paint. Too cool. Is this the mini album or a bigger size?

  2. These are great. I love the wedding one! You know how I feel about sewing on layouts- it's awesome!


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
