Hello Creative Scrapbookers! I’m Jayme Loge, a proud member of the Creative Scrapbooker team, and I’m delighted to share some layouts and cards I made with Simple Stories adorable spring and Easter line, Hip Hop Hooray! I had a lot of fun playing with these papers and was so happy to scrapbook 4 years’ worth of Easter and spring photos. You can watch my daughter grow and change with each layout.
The first layout shows my preschool Avery hard at work coloring eggs. I wanted to add a bit of mess to my layout to echo what was going on at the kitchen table, so I added some pigment powder to my embossing paste (from Ranger) and applied some through a stencil (Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz) and some just smudged around. The Hip Hop Hooray stickers and Bits & Pieces are perfect for adding quick finishing touches- LOVE that! Next comes kindergarten Avery with her cousin, exploring my parent’s acreage while the house was full of dinner preparation hustle and bustle. They did not come back in as clean as they left, but they sure had a good explore! I added some tiny gems from Stampin’ Up! and used American Crafts Thickers for the title. This layout was based on the Creative Scrapbooker March sketch but I expanded it into a two-page layout to accommodate all the photos I wanted to use.Now we come to my beautiful Grade One Avery, proudly standing by the table she helped to set! I added lots of May Arts ribbon to pick up on the textile detail of the tablecloth in the photo. I’ve just realized I put the wrong date on this photo- it was actually from 2011!! I will be fixing that, but not in time for this deadline! My final layout features my adorable Grade Two Avery, playing in the puddles in the park on a warm March day. My just as adorable Grade Eleven Avery is rolling her eyes at the line-up of her little selves, lol! I’ll have to scrapbook that one day as well. Just for fun, I made a couple of quick cards. Did I mention that I love those little Bits & Pieces! A little bit of easy watercolor in the background to highlight the stickers and you have a card in just a few minutes… I hope you enjoyed these Simple Stories projects as much as I enjoyed making them!
Happy scrapping, everyone!
