Scrapbooking Again...

Several months ago I bought a book by Creating Keepsakes called Easy Patterns for Scrapbooking. I love the layouts in this book and the fact that you can get so many different projects out of just a few sheets of cardstock and pattern paper. A few days ago I pulled out this fun pattern paper and wanted to find the perfect pictures to go with it. Instantly I thought of my retreat photos from my August trip.


So I picked out which patterns I wanted to copy out of the book, I cut out all my pieces of cardstock and pattern paper and I printed all my pictures on my photo printer. Once I had the major pieces down on the paper, I was able to add my embellishments and stamp all those words with alphabet stamps.

The few really fantastic things about scrapbooking this way: (1) you get more layouts done using less product; (2) you get a lot more done in a lot less time; and, (3) your pictures are now in a scrapbook ~ which is the best part!

Supplies Used: Cardstock ~ Bazzill; Pattern Paper ~ Sweetwater (All About Me); Stamps ~ Hero Arts Alphabet; Die Cut Letters ~ Cricut Alphalicious Cartridge; Accessories ~ ric rac (unknown); Chipboard flowers ~ Sweetwater; Brads ~ Stampin' Up!
