Anyway, I digress! I am here to talk about My scrapbooking club meeting today! I am so excited! I don't think I have seen my girls in a month and I have missed them. I have so much to share! This month, we are working on the La Vie En Rose paper pack. I don't know if I mentioned it or not, but my goal this year is to use up ALL the papers every month. This month, I almost did it! Here is what I made:
A bit of a closer look at my silly family!
In my quest to use up all the paper in the workshop, I decide that I would do a page for as many of my children's books as I could. (I was going to say for each of my children, but my youngest NEVER has any pictures for me to scrap!) So, this is a page for my bonus child's album. I generally do a 1 page spread for his albums, unless it is a big event.
He went to see his grandparents over new years and had a wonderful time. Not many pictures though.
Did you notice that I used a FACE BOOK POST? His grandmother posted something and I thought in future years, it would be cool to tell his kids that MAMAW was on social media! I just did a screen shop with my phone and then printed it off. It was kinda tricky to get all the embellishments in too! But, I wanted it to be a LA VIE EN ROSE page for sure!
The next step, making an opening page for my album. Welcome 2016! I don't know that I'm going to be doing all pocket pages this year, but, the new workshop style is incorporating pocket pages in they fray. I thought I would give it a try. I must say, I am very happy with how they turned out.
I love all the GOLD touches that I got to add to this layout. I knew I needed to put those in there to balance out the LA VIE EN ROSE GOLD FOIL TAPE accents! This layout turned out just how I wanted it to!
Of course, now I needed to get the cards made. There are so many ideas on PINTEREST! That always seems to be my starting point for ideas, then, I just get in my scrap room and see what happens. This month, this is what happened.
I personally, don't care for the ROSES B&T, but, it makes a great accent on cards and I loved using it as the base for the banners on cards 2&3. How about a closer look?
So, guess what! I STILL HAVE PAPER LEFT!! Not a bunch, but enough for one or two pages or several more cards. I am going to work on getting it used up today and tomorrow so I will be ready to move on to the paper pack we are using in February.
For now, I need to go get ready to go to CLUB! See you Wednesday,
