Scrapbooking your Adventures

I love scrapbooking outdoor adventure photos.  My daughter Hailey continues to provide me with opportunities.  Although I love the outdoors, she is much more of an adventure seeker than I am. When taking your photos, don't forget to capture where you are.  Look for signs or location markers. Although the landscape may be beautiful, it never looks as amazing in a photo so make sure you get people in those shots!

I wanted to add a pop of gold to this layout which is how I selected my title and made a homemade embellishment using a large gold paperclip and washi tape.

Supplies:  Dear Lizzy Gold Thicker Words, gold paperclip, washi tape

Thanks for stopping by.  If you enjoy reading my posts, I would love for you to follow me on a regular basis.  Please add your e-mail in the top right hand corner.  I am also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Stick it Down-April Design

Here is my layout for the Stick It Down sketch for April.  I decided to use my beautiful sister-in-laws as my subjects.  Recently I saw this photo of them and thought about how lucky I was to have them in my life.

I just love the My Minds Eye paper and decided to cut out the butterflies to use as my embellishments and sewed them on to my paper strips.  After I sewed them on, I bent the butterflies so that they look like they are coming off of the page.  I also used a butterfly hole punch to cut out butterflies along the paper strips.

Supplies:  Paper-Simple Stories, Summer Vibes, My Minds Eye; My Story, Letters-Thickers; Sentiment, Journal Card-My Minds Eye; My Story.

Here's the sketch:
Stick It Down is a great place to find inspiration and new ideas. It's a fun way to push your creativity.

The sketches are revealed on the first of each month. You will have all month to create and submit your design by linking it on the site.  A few of the submitted designs will be featured with one winner being chosen and the opportunity to be a guest designer in the future!

Now let's go create! Shanna
