Abby’s Christening

After being invited to a friend’s baby’s Christening, I left thee invitation on our fridge for a few weeks. It was super cute so I was okay with that. When I did finally take it down, you know it didn’t go in the trash. Like any good scrapbooker, it sat in my 2013-to-scrap pile until I finally got around to putting it in the 2013 book.

I went with a soft pink paper to match the invitation perfectly, and then found a Lori Whitlock sticker that matched the colors just as much as the paper did. I inked the edges of the mats with pink ink because I wanted to fit as much pink as possible on to this page.

I switched to purple paper to make the title pop, but still backed it with pink paper.

I thought the page needed a little something extra, so I added some pastel translucent heart stickers all over the page.

Tag by K&COMPANY, mat paper is Wasau Textured Cardstock, stickers by Stickapotamus, background pink Cardstock was a gift, title made with SCAL and my Cricut, purple paper by Mambi. Long flower sticker by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park.

Doggy Egg Hunt

It’s pretty obvious that I’m obsessed with Pancakes, my little Bichon. If the pictures of her scrapbooking with me aren’t enough, go look at my Instagram Feed. Yup. Bone-ified obsessed. (See what I did there? Bone? Like dog bone. Hilarious).

So, with my obsession out in the open, it should come of no surprise that when the was a dog Easter egg hunt in my area, I was there with bells on.

At an event such as this, it would’ve been impossible not to take pictures. I mean, the Easter bunny was there (although, according to the director it was actually some poor high school kid getting community service. Ha!)

I don’t think Easter is a big holiday in the scrapbook world, because I didn’t really have anything Easter themed in my stash. Luckily, I found some egg stickers so I could show te holiday a little bit.

I chose a light pink paper because pink seems like an Easter color, and use two different pieces of vellum to bring some more color on top of that. I matted the photos with polka dot paper because polka dots kind of reminded me of eggs :).

Journaling was done on a piece of vellum and then placed on top of another pink piece of paper. I did this because the vellum had gold paint splatters and I was trying to bring in as much color as possible.

And, if you notice my computer, I’m still working on getting caught up on Project Runway. Only a couple more episodes to go!

Pink polka dot paper by Me & My Big Ideas (summer Mambi Sheets), stickers from an old Sticker-a-Day calendar, black letters by American Crafts, pink background paper by Colorbok, sheets of vellum from Michaels, green letters at mat paper from Target, journaling done with a thin Sharpie.
