More Scrapbook Layouts
I’m sad the weekend is over. My daughter and I had a great time scrapbooking, socializing, and shopping. It is great to be at a place where everyone who is present actually wants to be there and all around you is the sound of music and laughter. The laughter gets louder as the evening wears on and we all start to get a bit slap happy.
Chair massages are also available if having fun gets too stressful. 😊 My sweet child thought it was funny to make fun of how I looked with my face squished through the chair. She really didn’t think that one through considering her turn was after my mine. 😂😂
I didn’t get many layouts done. I started out strong, then, fizzled. Below are layouts # 5 & #6. To see the others, go to Scrapbook Weekend – Creative Memories and More and Scrapbook Layout with Cricut Expression.
Scrapbook Layouts #5
We were cropping in a large ballroom that did not have great overhead lighting so my pictures have a glare. It is a shame because I love this layout!
My Sweet Child and her BFF go to rival schools. And, by rivals, I mean police escorts to the football games kind of rivals. Way back in our day, when Sclep and I were in the band, we had a police escort. Nothing has changed today.
The paper is Creative Memories and I made the title with the Cursive 101 Cricut cartridge I welded the letters together with my Gypsy. I used the “j” from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge and my Gypsy to make the hockey sticks.
Scrapbook Layout #6
This layout is what held me up on Saturday. It is actually a 2-page layout but the second page is so bad I deleted it.
I had a lot of bad pictures (mostly of the back of my daughter and too far away) and I wanted to use the grass paper. To use as many of the pictures as possible, I cropped the worst of them down to only have my daughter on them. To keep the grass paper from overwhelming the layout, I put a double mat behind the focus pictures. This layout needs more work. It definitely needs a title, some journaling and more embellishments but I needed a break. (massage, anyone?)
I used the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge to make the “Game On!” die-cut.
My sister-in-law brought her Cricut Explore Air this past weekend. I am really tempted to make the leap and upgrade to one.
