12x12 Scrapbook Layouts for National Scrapbook Day Challenges

I hope you all had a great National Scrapbook Day!!

I managed to following along with Two Peas In a Bucket and three of their challenges. 

Here is my YouTube video showing you all layouts in details.

"Look into my Eyes" Layout

This layout for the Two Peas In a Bucket Photo Focus Challenge

For this layout I used the Vintage Bliss collection from Simple Stories. 

This challenge was to focus on photo inspired products. I cut a polaroid using my Silhouette Cameo. I used a free printable from Simple Stories that features a camera. I heat embossed a wooden camera that is on the top right corner. The glassine bag has some glittered cut out cameras in it just like the one on the front of the bag. 

This picture was taken in 2009 when our black pug, Poot, was a puppy. Emily taught Poot how to climb up her slide and I captured this sweet picture of Emily talking to Poot and Poot listening and loving Emily's attention.

I simply titled it "Look into my Eyes" and just love this picture.

"Love This" Layout

This layout was for the Two Peas In a Bucket Sketch challenge.

I followed the sketch pretty close other than using one 5x7 collage versus two pictures. 

This layout is about a road trip we took to Granbury, TX and a visit a wonderful antique store called Witherspoons. I kept the business card and used it on the layout. I also bought these LOVE Scrabble tiles from this store. 

The paper is from the Dear Lizzy/American Crafts Lucky Charm collection. I also used some doilies and stamps from my stash. 

"Let's Play Ball" Layout

The color combo for this challenge included navy blue, grass green, lemon yellow,and soft gray.

The only collections that I had in my stash with these colors were the Lily Bee Persnickety and Double Dutch collections. 

I used 3 - 4x6 photos for this layout. I didn't want to cut these down because I love the blue skies and grass.  These pictures show Emily and Mac playing ball. I knew I wanted my title to be let's play ball, so I focused on punching circles and putting them into a half circle on the layout. I like the effect. 

These colors are not what I usually reach for, so this was a challenge for me and I loved it!

Thank you for looking at my layouts!

See you on the next post.
