We get really excited about DIY projects and party decor (and probably always will, let's be honest) but every once in a while, it's fun to return to our roots and do some traditional paper crafting. So, today on the blog, we're scrapbooking!
For the first project, I had a picture of my adorable nephew and his little friend that I wanted to use. I chose this ombre page out of our Melon Patch paper pad as the background and then added strips of paper and cut out little triangle shapes from other sheets from the same paper pad. Then, I added this cute little photo of my nephew and his friend playing bumper cars. He is the sweetest! :) To top it off, I added cute little Recollections brand monster stickers that I found at Michaels stores.
For this wedding page, I wanted to make a layout from a wedding. I used some simple but elegant pages from our Love Story paper pad. I cut out the letters L, V, E and used one of their wedding pictures as the, "O". The tag page from the paper pad had a lot of cute romantic quotes, and I chose, "When I look at you I am home" - I think the classic typography really echoes the style of their wedding. I polished it off with some pretty stickers from Michaels for a little added embellishment!
Here are pictures of the paper pads used in the making of these scrapbook pages!
