Havin A Blast layout

Fourth of July, 2010!  We spent the day at a friend's house, barbecuing and fireworks.

So this is the last layout I did with the July Scrappinista Scrapbook club kit for Scrapaganza. It was really fun to work with that kit. I loved the colors... I know, they were July 4th colors, but still, I've seen papers I didn't like for this theme! :)

I used my i-Top punches to punch shapes for the "flowers", which also could represent fireworks if you don't like flowers on a boy page. ;)  Anyway, good way to use specialized punches in a new way!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Boot Camp layout

Yep, me again, this time I'm in the Air Force boot camp in 1984.  Yikes!

Another layout using the July Scrappinista Scrapbook Club papers, American Made by My Mind's Eye. I used a sketch from one of Scrapbook Generation's sketch books, which Scrapaganza carries. Love these sketch books! This particular sketch is awesome in that you can get a taste of several different printed papers without using up a lot of them.

I also pulled in some Air Force stickers that Scrapaganza had in stock, and that really filled out the page the way I wanted.

Thanks for stopping by!

1776 1976

Yep, that's me, dressed as a pilgrim for the 1976 July 4th parade. I was in girl scouts and that was our troop walking in the parade.

This is another layout using the MME American Made collection for the July Scrappinista Scrapbook club at Scrapaganza (wow that is a mouthful). Some of the papers in the layout are practically done pages before you even start! I added another layer of paper, then my pictures, and then a few embellishments and it was done.

Thanks for looking!

American Made Boy

Hello all! Long time no see... yeah. I'm naughty. But feeling like blogging so here we go!

This layout, American Made Boy, was created with My Mind's Eye, American Made collection! I love working with MME papers, such great quality cardstock and designs are always awesome. This collection was used for the Scrappinista Scrapbook Club for July at Scrapaganza!

I also used the Daisy Wheel punch from Martha Stewart EK large border punches. I punched the top layer then glued that down to another printed paper and trimmed around the edges, which gives a bunting effect, I thought. Finished the bunting off with a little ribbon.

The star in the background was made using Jenni Bowlin banner stamps on scrap white paper, cutting out the banners and putting them together to make the star. easy peasy. :)

Buttons are from Charlene's Button Box!
