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!

Scott Halloween 2013

Scott's Halloween page is a background from DCWV The Basics Stack as well as some printed paper scraps from the Fall & Halloween Stack.  I matted those scraps, figured the HALLOWEEN in brackets served well enough for a title on this rather self-explanatory page, and so just added the date with alpha stickers in between.  I matted my main photo and flanked it with Scott in his ninja poses.  Easy. Squeezy. Done.

Alarik Christmas 2013

You have to have read, probably, three of my page posts to know that I use papers from a DCWV stack on 90% of my pages.  I recently purhased Stack 8 and I love it.  The background paper and photo mats on this page are both from that.  My title and date are from Jenni Bowlin Studio's Star Banner Red Stickers.  I journaled on chalk tape by Fancy Pants which Steph ordered from peachycheap.com and we've both been loving.

Scott's Fall Page

Well, this paper and this technique should look familiar to you because it's the same as I did for Bekah's 3rd Grade page here.  I used a quieter main background page and then matted my photos with another leaf-print paper.  All papers, again, are from the DCWV Fall and Halloween Stack.  I found the kraft paper tags at JoAnn Fabrics and added a jute tie to the top of each one.

Gavin's Birthdays 2-10


I didn't start scrapping until my kids were a little older so this is another one of my "catch up" pages that spans several years.  I found this to be a good way to hit all the high points without getting too overwhelmed with everything I had to scrap.

Material:
candle paper- Paper Adventures
Metal #'s- JoAnn Fabrics
journal block and birthday and cake accents- Happy Day Flash Cards by Simple Stories

Simple Fall Page

For this very simple page of my kids outside on a beautiful fall day I used Harvest paper by WeR Memory Keepers.  I triple matted the photo with three colors of card stock, then used the lighter blue card stock again as a mat for my title.  I had these Sticker Studio alpha tag stickers from eons ago and they fit the page well, but I was missing an A.  No worries, I substituted a metal oak leaf charm and thanks to our marvelous human brains, it looks like the word, "FALL"!
