Scrapbooking Morgan

Talking about all the great new Designer Series Papers (see the details of my Paper Share in the previous post!) has gotten me excited to get back to my Favorite Photos Album! It's been a while since I've added a page, so I sat down to do just that and got not one, but two pages done! They are both of Morgan, and I used one of the Designer Series Paper packs that's carrying over to the new catalog - Urban Garden - because I don't yet have my new papers! Here are the pages I created:

This one uses Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, and Not Quite Navy. Notice how the colors pop on top of the gray? I pulled out a Metal Edge Circle Tag, which was perfect for the Always sentiment. It also ties in nicely with the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware.

This one uses the same colors, only I substituted Old Olive for the Kiwi Kiss - a little less vibrant. I got a little "experimentally creative" here - I knew I wanted some vellum on the left side, and I tossed in some color by cutting out some cardstock the same size as the vellum circles. I attached the vellum to the top with Crystal Effects. This allowed it to have a "loose" look, instead of being solid.

I wish I had more time to scrapbook. I'm going to try a new idea I had. Using coasters as the "page" and binder rings to keep them together, just cover each page with DSP and then attach the picture. Of course the pictures will need to be small. I'm not much into journaling anyway, so I think this will work for me. I think these will be easier to do and cute to leave out here and there. I'm not sure if this is a new idea....I may have come accross it somewhere, but I thought I'd give it a go! Always love your pages...green, blue and gray are great together.

Your LO's are really wonderful. I love your photos. My favorites of our children are those same angles that capture their little faces when they are curious. Love them!
