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!)

Caden's Basketball 2014-15



I guess I am back into tearing paper- I notice I did that on several pages from our last scrap day.  It's just so fun and easy and I love the way it looks!  I used my paw print punch on this page to add even more detail to paper I had torn.

Christmas 2014 - Scott

I used the same papers and color scheme for Scott's Christmas page as I did for Alarik's.  I had no idea that everything from Christmas Eve service outfits, to PJs, to Christmas morning clothes were so color-coordinated this year!  I should claim that I did that on purpose, but it's purely coincidence.

Caden's 11th Birthday

Pennants, banners and stars- you really can't go wrong with those in my book:)   I used several different star punches to make the embellishments for this page.  I also added some birthday stamps and a token from the arcade place that we went to.

Christmas 2014 - Bekah

This layout was inspired by Pinterest.  During a long scrapbooking day or weekend, it's easy to run out of steam and I often turn to my "Scrappy Ideas" Pinterest board when I start to feel like all my pages are looking the same.

You know I love pennants and stars, so why not combine them???  This layout is a great way to use up some patterned papers that I probably wouldn't have used otherwise.  The papers are all from a DCWV Christmas stack.  I matted the photos on black so they wouldn't get lost on the busy patterns.  I see now that I didn't bother with a title or date.  My kids' albums are in chronological order so date isn't all that important and I guess I figured the photos are self-explanatory, even without a title.

Gavin's Track 2015



This page will forever make me angry!  I left his track portrait and team picture in it's envelope on my desk and it faded in the sun and got all streaky:(  If I would have only turned the envelope over so the little window was facing down.  Oh well, no way to get a new one so I just scrapped it anyway.
It is rare for me but I used plain white paper as a background for this spread and added "torn pennants" in school colors and a track print paper.

Christmas 2014 - Alarik

Well, I am way behind Steph in getting pages from our last scrap day posted.  And I'm sorry to say that I misplaced my notes on what materials I used on each page so this next series of posts from me is going to be pretty lacking as far as that goes.  Though, we all know I'm a sucker for 12x12 stacks by DCWV so you can be pretty safe in betting that the majority of the papers I used are from one of those.

I chose my color scheme for Alarik's 2014 Christmas page based on the kids' outfits in the photos.  I used up some coordinating scraps as accent pennants and finished up with an alpha sticker title.

Caden's D.A.R.E. Trip

How lucky my sister had this Twins colored striped paper for me to steal!  Actually I stole a lot of stuff from her on our last scrapping weekend:)  One of the joys of scrapping together....sharing supplies!

Background paper- DCWV Stack 8
Punch out letters- DCWV- I cannnot begin to count how many pages I have used these letters on! They were a super buy!

I always like to put a ticket on sporting event pages, then you don't have to worry about getting the date/time/seat location on your page.  All the info is on the ticket.
