These are pages from our personal scrapbooks. We'll try not to bog you down with long supply lists and explanations (half the time we can't remember what we used anyway!)

Please feel free to "scrap-lift" any of our ideas that strike your fancy, and if you are a scrapbooker with your own blog, please link back to us!

Jade's Portraits

I always had to hang on to all those portraits that you get of your kids throughout their baby, toddler and preschool years.  I had a whole envelope of them and would feel big time guilt whenever I thought of throwing them away.  My solution was to scrap one of each of the best pictures and then chuck the rest quickly before I could think about it!  For some of my daughter's sessions I only had the big 8x10s left which of course take up too much room to scrap them all.  Unless you make a fun flip book on your page!  I used some hinges and brads and put all the 8x10s together.  When I put it in her album I will need to cut the page sleeve so that you can actually flip through and look at all the pictures.  I used small scraps of paper to make banners and label the photos with an age.

Scott's NYE 2013

Yikes, looks like I forgot to post this page of Scott's from our last scrapping session! 
The papers are from DCWV The Basics Stack.  I worried that the star print paper might look too feminine but I think with the other patterned paper that is heavy on black, it balanced out just fine.  I matted and made a journaling block with grey card stock.  Title letters are The Paper Studio.

Gavin's Halloween 2013

I think Gavin made a pretty Good Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty!  Mistakes on Halloween pages must have been the theme for me on out last scrap day because I see now that this one says "Hallowee".  I am going to go with the theory that I didn't forget the n- I think it must have fallen off!

Supplies used:
paper- The Bewitched Stack by DCWV
stickers- K & Company
alpha stickers- Recollections

Scott in Snowshoes

grey and green card stock
Plaid Paper: DCWV The Basics Stack

Karen Foster Design Winter Wonderland #11631 card stock stickers
Title: The Paper Studio alphas
That title word looks like it's spelled wrong no matter how many times I look it up to make sure it's right.  Snowshoeing is just a weird word!

Violin & Piano

I went with the black, red and white color palette again for this page about Bekah's piano and violin playing.  My only supplies were card stock, punch out black and silver stars by Colorbok, and fabric metallic alpha stickers by Greenbrian International, and there wasn't much to this page other than matting my photos and adding a journaling block.

Gavin's Basketball 2013-14

Again on this sports page I went with a background that wasn't basketball themed or school colors.  I used my crazy, cool corner punch to bring some interest to some of the photos and I used some foam adhesive stickers to pop up every other letter in my "hoops" Title.

Supplies used:
background paper- Stonewashed Stack by The Paper Studio
"Retro" basketball stickers- Sticker Studio
Hoops title- Colorbok
punch out title letters- DCWV
