How many 6×6 paper stacks do you own? A few? Possibly like me you have a bit of an addiction to buying them. I buy them because they are so good for scrapbooking pages but also because I think I’ll use them for card classes. More often than not I don’t or if I do I’m stuck with bit a pieces. This layout uses those bits and pieces of a 6×6 paper stack.
One of my signature styles according to my husband is the pen border around my paper pieces. Well what can I say? I love doing it because it gives each piece a bit of definition.
Another favourite of mine is to create 3 embellishment clusters. I love that these co ordinating papers give me the ability to make cheap embellishment clusters.
It wouldn’t be a layout of mine without some journaling either and this time I’ve included a clise up of the story.
I loved making this layout. It came together very easily because everything co-ordinates and I was able to stick to what I love and what feels right to me.
For me the most important thing about scrapbooking is the journaling. I want my kids to know their story and the story of our lives. I don’t really enjoy looking at scrapbooking pages without journaling. Maybe it is the voyeur in me that likes to read other people’s story? I don’t know but I know reading their story helps me to connect with them a little.
This is a journal heavy layout. It is a layout I love and as most of you know I’m not really a fan of my handwriting but I am a fan of our stories.
Of course you’re going to need some close ups.
See what I mean about journaling. Messy writing but I’ve told her story. I left out her teacher’s name because I don’t have her permission to publish it.
Such a simple layout but gosh I’m happy with it. I’m also so proud of my darling Jessica and her commitment to having a go and having fun.
