my scrapbook pages and thoughts

Have you taken some time off?

Have you taken some time off scrapbooking? Are you interested in getting back into it but maybe having a little trouble getting started? I know the feeling, I have done that myself, I understand. We stop for a variety of reasons, health, cost, emotional, whatever the reason, I’m glad you are here.

And I’m going to make a suggestion. Check out CKC, seriously. Each month they duplicate a monthly kit from your stash. Yes, from the supplies you already have. You will also learn how to counterfeit some of the items as well. The thing about this is, it keeps expenses down, it gives you some guidelines as to where to start, and there is no right or wrong, just a creative outlet for you.

Here is the first layout I’ve done using my November Counterfeit Kit. I really wanted to use that Fancy Pants owl I’ve had forever, so I’m very pleased I could. So many items in my kit this month are older items, but I still like them so its great to be able to use them up.

This close up shows some layers, the very cute fabric Amy tangerine label and that orange enamel dot…..I made it. Yup, did too. You can make some, they aren’t difficult at all.

This one shows more layers again, plus some of the different textures, paper, fabric, wood, and again, a couple of homemade enamel dots.

So if you have taken some time off, seems to be a lot of us out there, welcome back. I’m glad you are here. Take a look at your supplies and see if you can play along this month. Don’t worry if your stash is old, look at some of the supplies I’m using! Lets just get some creativity going and enjoy scrapping again.

Lacrosse mini album

Here is the mini album I made. I actually used a few soccer and baseball things since I didn’t really have much lacrosse stuff, but it all seemed to come together just fine.

Here’s the cover.
