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!)

Scenic State Park Hike and Picnic

This is frugal scrapping at its best...three 2-page spreads from one set of themed papers!  I did the same basic layout for each of my three kids, adjusting as needed for different sized photos.  I filled in the empty spaces with papers from We R Memory Keepers' Happy Campers line.  since I was covering most of it up, I was able to use up some funky colored card stock that I probably would not normally have chosen for Alarik's:

 And here is how Bekah's turned out:

Last but not least, Scott's:

Wodahl Family Reunion


We traveled out to the Black Hills earlier this summer and had a blast at our family reunion.  It took awhile to cut out all the squares and make the title for this page but I love it and think it was worth it!

Supplies used:
background paper- Proud to Serve Stack by The Paper Studio
alpha stickers- DCWV
South Dakota stickers- Paper House Productions

Memorial Weekend 2014


Most of the room on this spread is filled with pictures!  I used plain background paper and a scrap of camping themed paper out of my scrap file.  The title letters are from a DCWV punch out stack and the tree and table block is from Back Country Story Tellers by The Paper Studio

Bekah in Showshoes

Just like on Scott's page, the title looks misspelled to me, but it's not! The argyle-patterned paper started out life as a full sheet from DCWV The Basics Stack.  I loved it, but it was too busy to use the full sheet as a background.  So instead I cut portions from it and used those to brighten up a sheet of plain purple card stock.  I matted my photos and tucked some parts of them under my patterned paper pieces.  The little snowman stickers are from Jolee's Boutique.

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 our 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
