The word "Scrapbooking Fiend" comes to mind!!
Yes, I've been a very busy scrapper (hee hee) lately! I'm at least half way through the stack of pictures I have for my daughter's 1st Scrapbook - and I feel like I can breathe again!! Ok, so, besides the 3 inch stack I've got to do for Alivia, I DO still have an entire photobox FULL (I really mean FULL) of "family" photos to scrap, NOT TO MENTION the 300 or so I haven't even printed yet, but I'm not overwhelmed any longer (probably becuase I'm concentrating on ONLY looking at the smaller Alivia stack right now - Baby Steps, Heather!).
But anyway, here are 3 more layouts that I completed last night. For the 1st - "Sweet Flutterby Girls" I used my new Lawn Fawn Stamps (Bannerific) again. I went into this layout only knowing that I HAD to use these stamps!! I used Basic Grey's "Olivia" paper and embellishments, my adored Martha Stewart butterfly punches and paper pieced the banner. I'm finding that I LOVE paper piecing!!
For the 2nd - "We love you OVERALL" I used Fancy Pants "Rusted Sun" line. Sigh...I'm addicted to these punched/folded flowers right now. Also, I heat embossed some chipboard letters with a dark blue embossing powder and made it kinda altered/messy. Fun fact - these pics all look warm and beachy, but they were taken in December. Plus side of Florida - it's almost warm (a little too warm right now, thank you).
For the 3rd layout - "Tag you're it" I used Fancy Pants again (unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the line). I got the idea from this month's Scrapbooks ETC. and just made it my own. I just always loved these pics of Alivia chewing on this toy's tag :D and when I saw the tag layout I knew I had to go THERE! I used Glimmer Mist (tuscan sun) on the tags and then paper pieced (I LOVE THESE OWL STAMPS!!) with coordinating papers from the set. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE these American Crafts thickers(green). I think they're my fave yet!! And it seems I can't survive a scrap session these days without my October Afternoon mini market letter stickers! I though the heart punch (fiscars) popped up with foamies and the tabs at the top (EK Success) added a little something extra as well. The buttons are Papertrey ink. Whew! Are you done hearing me chatter on yet?!? Have a great day!!
