Scrapbooking in June: Instagram Challenges 2

The next #FMSPAD challenge on Instagram was "besties". I chose a picture of my husband and my son, before they were dad and son, they were BFFs. I know we are rounding the corner into summer but this is a clearly Autumn layout. Oh, well! 

The prompt for Shimelle's #ScrapbookingIsMySuperpower Instagram challenge was paper you are still saving. I have lots that fit the prompt, but I have a great many constellation/star/space papers that I love but haven't found the exact right photos for yet. I suppose we will need to go star gazing or to a planetarium so I can find a good use for them. I just don't have the right camera for night photos, though! Is this a good enough excuse to spend the money? haha!

Scrapbooking in June: Instagram Challenges 1

I was thinking this June I was going to follow the Photo A Day Challenge on Instagram and use it as inspiration for my scrapbooking. (@moscraps)

The prompt for day #1 was Joy. I recently saw both Shimelle and Jen Schow use this rainbow paper and I thought I was holding on to it a little too long so I should use mine, too! 

I saw Shimelle was also hosting this cool photo challenge on her Instagram. I am following along most days - looks like a fun time!! 

Scrapbooking in June: Counterfeit Kit Reveal

Counterfeit Kit revealed the June inspiration kit today on their blog.The Inspiration comes from a Felicity Jane kit. 

Here is my take with my June Kit, Stay.   

I ended up using 17 papers all from the 100 patterned papers I pulled earlier this year! So exciting!

Scrapbooking in May: Layouts

I made a goal at the beginning of the year to read more. Now I think I am getting a little obsessed! I have been spending most of my spare time doing that instead of scrapping, but I still found a little bit of time this month to get some things done. 

I am excited for Summer to begin and hoping that there will be more time to get crafty. So far, all my weekends look pretty busy in June! I still need to get through the rest of my Hip Kit and May Counterfeit Kit.

Scrapbooking in May: Challenge 34

I turned to my Challenge Jar instead of the usual NSD challenges. 

Use smaller photos 

I pulled out some papers from my 100 patterned papers and went to town with random things I could find on my desk. The challenge on 100 patterned papers is to use some washi tape this month so I grabbed some and all sorts of wood things. The photos look dark here but it is my son dressed up as Harry Potter. He is running around a wooden playground that looks like a castle (Hogwarts) with his magic wand. 

NSD Scrapbooking

So I went through all the NSD challenges on the usual sites I follow but I just wasn't feeling inspired. I don't know why! Maybe because I haven't scrapped much lately or there were other things to get done today. I ended up pulling out the rest of my April Counterfeit Kit (Something There) and a few pieces from the 100 patterned papers and made a few random pages. At least I'm getting some stuff done! 

iNSD 2017 Challenge 1

It's International Scrapbook Day! I am trying to play along with some of the challenges on various groups. Here is one where we needed to Scraplift ourselves, hosted by Paper Issues on Facebook. 

Here is my original, randomly selected from an album chosen by my husband:

And here is the new one, using my April Counterfeit Kit Something There. I used a picture of my lovely in-laws on a hay ride.
