Pages Completed

Hello all. Well I have been working very hard this month to catch up on my baby's scrapbook. I am not THAT far behind. He's 9 months old and I've completed about 12 2-page layouts. Not too bad. Below you will find my layouts. I apologize for the glare and the overall bad picture taking. Also, I have not journaled yet on these pages. I figured I would sit down this weekend and do it in one go. These pages had been made in the last year at classes and at conventions and I just put my pictures in.

The above uses CTMH Hollydays paper. I left a space on the side for journaling.
The above used a holly stamp and the old CTMH background paper. The squares on the side I'm going to use to put the year.
This scrapbook page uses SEI paper. it was also a way to use scraps. The strips of paper were scraps that were criss crossed to create a border. A TIP: most of my pictures are horizontal so if you have a page that has a space for a vertical picture and you don't have one then crop your pictures down and you can fit two small pictures in the vertical spot. See the page on the left - Tyler is wearing a hat - I cropped these pictures to fit in this vertical spot and now I have more pictures on my layout. Plus sometimes cropping your pictures really makes the people in the picture standout.
These two layouts use CTMH's Rough and Tumble paper and the charm alphabet. I cropped my horizontal pictures to fit in the vertical spot. I think they came out really nice and I hope you enjoyed them!
Pin It Now!

Great layouts, Cindy! I have been neglecting my scrapbooking and only making cards. This gives me inspiration to get back to my scrapbooks. THANKS!

BTW, what is your favorite medium for coloring in your stamped images and why?

Right now I I love my prismacolors because they are so easy to blend and so vibrant! Before that I did a lot of watercoloring...
