The Bazzill Basics Design Team is excited to celebrate with you!
Today we want to share some inspiration to help kick off your weekend creativity!
It was exactly 12 years ago today that I started scrapbooking and I still love it!
I remember that Jonah was nine months old at the time and Austin was almost four.
A friend of mine was selling Creative Memories and I hosted a beginner's party.
And that was it -- I was hooked!
I love so many things about this hobby:
creating beautiful layouts, preserving memories,
playing with patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments, stamps, diecuts, etc.
I also love the scrapbooking community and the friends that I've made through
paper crafting -- both in real life and online.
It's all just so very good!
So, in honour of NSD, I created a layout of one of my favourite people: my daughter, Sage,
using some Crate Paper patterned paper and dies.
I was quite thrilled to discover this fabulous Maggie Holmes dies at my LSS the last time I stopped in!
Aren't they gorgeous?
For my layout, I started with some Classics: White cardstock as my base.
I love that it's smooth and that if I wanted to stamp, I would have the perfect surface for it.
Then, to build my flowers, I started with the Card Shoppe: Pale Rose cardstock as my bottom layer.
For my leaves, I used Smoothies: Citron.
I layered my photo onto a piece of Crate Paper Confetti patterned paper.
I diecut my Heidi Swapp diecut from some Classics: White cardstock, which diecuts so beautifully,
and typed out my journaling/subtitle on my typewriter.
Next on the hop is the super talented Kim Jeffress, so be prepared to be inspired!
