13/1

My son attended Cub Scout camp last fall and I had a ton of photos. I wanted to fit as many as I could on one layout and I think I achieved my goal! I was able to get 13 photos on 1 layout! I used a cut file that is exclusively available from Big Picture Classes-Old Favorites with a New Twist taught by Ashley Horton.

I used CTMH’s Urban Paper Packet for the base page. I then cut down all of the photos to fit in the triangle slots and then randomly placed patterned papers in the remaining spaces. I used a majority of scraps from Basic Grey & CTMH (Steampunk Paper Packet & more Urban) and another label I’m unsure of to back the cut file.

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I’m determined to use my stash this year so I’ve been digging deep to find embellishments!! I used random stickers, arrows and alphas for the title and I also threw on a few CTMH Aqua Dots & Timberline Stickers. I didn’t include journaling on this layout because this event will be a two page spread and I designated a journaling area on the second page.

I love how many photos I was able to incorporate on this single layout!  The cut file helped to tone down the distractions from the busyness of the background in the photos and focus on the smiles of my boy!

I’m back again with another scrapbook layout featuring a cut file from The Cut Shoppe! This layout features multiple scrap papers that have been in my stash for A LONG, LONG, LONG time! I’m determined to use up some of the old product I have and I think everything on this layout would fall into that category! I wanted the papers to have somewhat of an outdoorsy theme (woodgrain, clouds, along with some neutrals) since the photo I am using was taken on a walk home from school. The sun was positioned perfectly where a few of the rays were shining around my sweet kiddo’s face so I wanted the layout to have the appearance of being outside.

 After I had my paper cluster the way I wanted, I added the How’s The Weather Cut File. I backed the “shine” area with a blueish/greenish cardstock and vellum to help it stand out from the cloud paper. I adhered my photo onto the same color cardstock and a folded piece of vellum. Once I had my photo and title piece down I started adding bits & pieces. Including stickers from Amy Tan, a CTMH chipboard frame, a flair button and other odds & ends that have been lurking in my stash for years! That piece of vellum over the cut file was a happy accident….a piece had gotten stuck to my sleeve and landed there. I loved how it looked like a cloud over the sunshine!
