12x12 Scrapbook Layouts and a Journal

Happy Labor Day!


Today I want to share two 12x12 scrapbook layouts and a journal.

These layouts are made using my leftover papers from the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer collection kit that I used on my previous post.

First layout - Title "Cool new shades for summer"

The cardstock is a Cosmo Cricket coordinations paper. All other papers and stickers are from the Simple Stories collection. The thickers are all by American Crafts. The summer title was fussy cut from the paper collection and then I added glossy accents over the letters. The picture is a 4x4 Instagram photo printed using the PostalPix app.
This layout is about Emily getting a new set of sunglasses at the beginning of the summer from Target.  They are multi-colored polka dots and fit her personality!!

2nd layout - Title "New Roller Blades"

The yellow cardstock is from American Crafts. All other paper is from Simple Stories. The stamps are from Ali Edwards Kids are Cool stamp set. I stamped them using Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup ink. For the title, "new" is from the Simple Stories sticker sheet, "roller" title stickers are from Studio Calico, and the "blades" are My Little Shoebox. For the paper with the circles on it, I had already punched out a circle to use in the summer activity jar so I placed a picture behind it and I love how it turned out! I added some brads from my stash and used an American Crafts heart scallop punch on the two striped boarder pieces. The two pictures are 4x4 Instagram photos that were printed using the PostalPix app. The smaller photo behind the circle was a 4x4 photo from Instragram that I cut down to size to fit behind the circle.
The layout is about my daughter's new roller blades that she got at the beginning of the summer with her 4th grade graduation money. She loves to roller blade so when she outgrew her other set, we headed to Academy for a new pair.

"My Journey" personal journal

For my journal, I used a Fancy Pants Brag Book. 
The paper collection is an older collection from Pink Paislee called 365 degrees.The butterfly, flowers, and crystals are Prima. The dress form die and soar ticket are Tim Holtz. The "live in the moment" trinket is from Girls' Paperie. The ribbon is either Stampin Up or May Arts.  My trinkets on the binding are from Tim Holtz.
I am going to use this as my personal journal to make mini motivational layouts just for me!
