Good day Creative Scrapbookers!
Jayme Loge here today with a few layouts from my craft table. I wanted to play with a few simple supplies and try to create a couple of layouts with them. I started with a few sheets of We R Memory Keepers patterned paper and coordinating sticker set, a few sheets of Bazzill cardstock and an American Crafts alphabet set. Here’s what I did with them:
First, I started off using the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketch
from this month’s “Let’s Get Sketchy” challenge – CLICK HERE to download your take on this sketch!
I added the heart to the background with some ‘vintage’ Heidi Swapp masks and Inca Gold paste. I changed the orientation of the sketch somewhat and used a special old photo taken on a trip to Mexico in 2000. Back then, film cameras were still in use and disposable panoramic cameras were all the rage! I thought I was super clever to turn the camera and take a tall picture, capturing the cityscape built up a hillside. Some beautiful gold May Arts ribbon made it onto the page as well.
Next, I pulled out a more recent holiday picture. This was from an impromptu trip to Jasper National Park we took at the end of summer holidays last year. We had spent most of our summer laboring in our backyard, getting our landscaping in and covering up our mud pit. It didn’t leave much time for fun and I’m glad we ran away at the end of it all. We’ve actually never done much more in Jasper than drive through on our way to BC, so it was a revelation to discover that there were actual things to do there. Late to the party, I know, but we can’t wait to go back! If you want to read more about our trip, you can find the details here: http://slightlyrandomjaymesworld.blogspot.ca/2015_08_01_archive.html
I must confess, I am a terrible hoarder of last leftover bits of scrapbooking supplies, and my goal was to use up a few random things on this page. I managed to get 3 packages off my clip-it-up and onto my layout! One leftover Prima navy flower (that when my husband saw the layout said, “That’s a bold choice! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen you use a black flower before!”), one leftover Prima ribbon strip and one leftover Zva Creative jewel spray. The harlequin chipboard was just sitting on my scrap table, left over from a recent project, so it found it’s way onto my page as well. A spritz of Clearsnap ink in the background, and voila! I have a completed layout and an excuse to buy new goodies to fill in the empty storage spots.
After that, I thought I was done, but when I looked at my leftover scraps, they were just laying there looking like a layout. I didn’t have to cut a single piece of paper to create this! I love it when a project comes together without agony:0)
And that is all from my scrapbook table! I hope I have inspired you to get to yours. I especially want to see your take on this month’s sketch.
