Hi Everyone! Its hard to believe its June already! But since it is, its time for a new challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous. This month, the challenge is to dig out those 6x6 or 8x8 mini stacks (decks) that you have and use at least 3 sheets from one on your layout.
I have several of these mini stacks so for this layout I used paper from Basic Grey's "Wander". I used 3 different papers to make my weaved section and then used another to cut the tag for my title. All the little accents...like the stop sign, speed limit signs, and such....are a 5th page. I cut them out from the page to act as embellishments.
This layout is about us on the hunt for little blue penguins, the rarest penguins in the world. We had paid to visit a sanctuary of sort and they lived in these wee burrows. During the day, we could find chicks in the burrows but you had to get down to the ground to see them. I just loved this picture of my boys taking a look. Of course, I had to get in the same position to get my picture of the penguin!! :) Glad I had the camera!!
While I had my papers and tags out, I decided to make up a mini album. I bought a kit from my local scrap store, Scrapbook Paradise. Included in the kit was the mini deck, a chipboard album, 1 sheet of alphabets, a package of ribbons, a package of brads, and the tags that go along with the Wander papers. I thought this was the perfect time to use them since I was designing for Scrapbookers Anonymous. I mean, I play along with them because I'm using up my stash, right? :)
Here are just some of the inside pages....
I pulled out a container of buttons and about used up that set too! It was so fun to get just in the groove and create. I used more of the cut out "tags/embellishments". I'm planning to add pictures from my parent's recent visit in this album. When I finished it, I realized that all my photo spots go the same way. I guess I'll be looking for vertical photos!! :)
The last page has a tag on it where I can list some of our favorite spots or memories.
I'm really happy the Gals at Scrapbookers Anonymous gave us this challenge. I'm excited to get out my other mini decks and do something with them as well. Oh, and I've got a card made with my scraps I'll share with you later on in the month! Make sure you link up your projects for a chance to win a fantastic prize! I'd love to check them out.
Happy Crafting!! :)
