Lucky Boy!

Posted by Micah at 10:58 PM 3 comments Links to this post
My son is nearly four and a half years old... and, I'm ashamed to admit, this is the first time I've scrapbooked (in a full size book anyway) his first birthday party. I used the Lucky paper pack with Kraft cardstock (which is close in color to Desert Sand) I really like the texture of it!

Maybe before he goes to High School I'll get around to scrapbooking his 2nd, 3rd and 4th birthdays!

Just us girls

We're finally all settled in at the new place and my craft room looks close to normal. Just in time too since I'm hosting my monthly demonstration group here next week! Today we celebrated my youngest's first birthday (for video cuteness see the bottom of the post!).

The project I have to share with you today is from last month's demonstration group. We used the Wings paper pack and did a layout from the Magic book available through CTMH. I offered the ladies in the group two options (black and Vineyard berry, or white and Sweet Leaf). (There is suppose to be a 6x6 picture on the left page but I didn't have any printed).

I love these groups so much for a chance to expand my own creativity. I find I do a lot of the same style of things... cards tend to look the same, the same layouts get used over and over... but when I spend time with the group and watch them assemble my design, with their own twist, I get to do the, "oh! never thought of that!" and "oh, that looks neat!" over and over.

The Magic book that I used for the layout incorporations interactive elements to each page. In this case it was an expanding booklet (3x3 squares). At first I was against the idea, I mean... how do you USE them in page protectors?? Then I bought the book and discovered that there is a tutorial on how to cut your page protector to allow the interactive element to work without removing the page from your book! How cool is that?

Well, it's supper time here and I can smell the salmon is almost finished roasting, so I'll leave you with one more image. Thanks for checking in!!
