Ivy Lane, Layout #3

Ivy Lane scrapbook layout #4!

I found sketch inspiration from Let's Scrap. They have a few fun sketch challenges posted in honor of National Scrapbooking Day! (NSD 2014) This is sketch 5-3-14. When I created my layout I mirrored this sketch to make my 2nd page. It worked beautifully for this kit.

The sketch suggested a pennant shape... The Ivy Lane Scrapbooking kit just so happened to have exactly that! (I LOVE when things fall into place!)

The extra zip strip sentiments were perfect for my layout!

I used this layout to document the day my Husband asked me to Marry him! Do you have a page in your Wedding Album telling the story of your proposal?

Ivy Lane, Layout #2

Ivy Lane scrapbook layout #2! Green and purple combo.

Page one of the layout was made working from sketches I found under the National Scrapbooking Day (NSD 2014) Challenge from Let's Scrap! There is a lot of fun activity going on there this month!

"Pure, Simple, Wonderful You". A great sentiment to anchor my photos on the 2nd page of my layout.

Purple Glitter Gems!!!

Kraft Title. I used this layout to showcase photos from our Honeymoon. Appropriately titled "Mini-Moon". We visited a butterfly house on Mackinaw Island, so when I was looking for accent piece for the sketch- it worked great to just contour cut the butterfly from a photo I had taken!

Hope you can join us at class to create this layout on June 5th 2014!

Ivy Lane, Pure Joy, Layout #1

"Ivy Lane" was on my radar when I first set eyes on it... Can you guess why? One word... PURPLE! (It's a kind of "You Had Me From Hello" moment when I see purple!) I knew right away I would use this paper set to help get layouts made for my Wedding Album. Approaching ten years, time to get the album finished!

I found this sketch pattern on the Let's Scrap website! Super cute. I made the circle and title shapes with my Artiste Cartridge.

The pennants under the photos are stamps from the kit.

The "Pure Joy" stamp that came in the kit made a perfect title for my page! I sponged the title with Gypsy Ink, then added sparkle gems to the holes of the doily shape.

What colors did you work with in your Wedding Albums? Anyone else out there like me and still finishing it up 10 years later? (Please say yes!)
