It has been a long time since I actually did real paper scrapbooking. I have been doing more and more digital scrapbooking because I can do it with no mess in my house and I can easily have it made into the digital books online. I love that. I can also use and re-use the kits which actually cuts down on the cost of buying paper. All this said, I spent 6 hours last night at a scrapping crop with a Creative Memories consultant and I remembered how much fun it is to do a hands-on, paper-cutting, tape and gluing layout. It is especially fun when you can do it with other people and chat the whole time.
These layouts I made don't have any Creative Memories stuff in them, but I did buy some papers which are super cute for next time! I have to print the pictures to go with the papers. So here's what I made. I spent most of the time making my boys' Valentine's. The airplanes still need to have banners attached, but I haven't printed those yet.
Most people have seen this kind of Valentine by now. I love how cute they turn out. I saw one online that also said, "Valentine, you make me snicker!" and then the little girl was holding a Snickers bar. Totally cute.
These will have a banner tied onto the back with Happy Valentine's Day on it and my son's signature on the back. He's a little too old (5th) for the traditional cutesy Valentines, so we went with something a little cooler.
This is my layout I finished last night. Not sure who makes the orange edged paper, but there is some Basic Grey on there as well as a folder I made using one of the Basic Grey folders as a template.
There are two pages for journaling....
