Showing posts with label Pocket Pages
On Thursday I found more photos from 2004 when my husband went fishing with a friend. I had 2 of these pics into a multi photo pocket page spread already but when I discovered the extra photos I knew it would need its own page.
These pictures are from a Great Big Sea concert from December 2004. They released a new CD that year that included the song Shines Right Through Me and I decided to use the tune as inspiration. I used the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set and the light beam, title & dirt from the High Tide stamp set.

Hello! Welcome to July's Scrapbook Global Blog Hop. Our theme this month is travel. I found these train trip pictures from March 2008 that were waiting to be scrapped and a perfect fit for this month's theme!
Fireworks! Since last week was Canada Day I thought scraping these photos was a good idea to do on my Facebook live. If you haven't watched yet you will most likely hear me talk about not liking the page and how it wasn't turning out for me the way I thought! Now that a few days has passed I really do like this page! What do you think? - leave me a comment below if you'd like.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday at Crop Kingston's June Crop in support of Make A Wish, we raised just over $60. The first two projects were designed by me.
Currently I am working on filling gaps in my scrapbooks - right now working on 2005, 2007 and 2008. The pictures used in this layout were just popped into a page waiting to be made into a completed layout! The opposite page was a 12" x 12" layout that was completed in 2010, as shown below.
Hello! Today I am sharing a two page spread using pocket pages that I was working on during my Facebook live last week. Friday night I took some time to finish the left side page since I did not have time while live to do so.
May 2007 trip to Whiteshell Provincial Park is now scrapped! Last night I printed the map of the campground we stayed in with our tent onto Whisper White cardstock. I didn't take any pictures of our campsite! I'm a little furious with myself but I am thankful for the pictures I do have. I believe the right side of this layout was one we did at a crop but I moved a few things around when I found pictures of our trip to the campground.
A new goal for me this spring and summer - make more scrapbooking pages, whether they are pocket pages (my favourite type) or full 12"x12" pages. I hope that you can join me either here on my blog or Facebook at or join me at one of Crop Kingston's all day crops.

My page today is from my camping trip in May 2007. Created this page during my Facebook live and it was very hard to not take a long time picking what I wanted to use for this layout. But I love how this turned out. Maybe I need to use a timer when I scrapbook so that I spend less time being indecisive and more time creating!

Stamps: None
Colours: Blackberry Bliss, Basic Black, Mint Macaron
Accessories: Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack, Faceted Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Variety Pack 12"x12" Photo Pocket Pages

Thanks for stopping by today!

Thank you to everyone that joined us last month for our All Day Crop in support of Partner's In Mission Food Bank here in Kingston. Myself and another demonstrator have teamed up to run Crop Kingston that runs all day crops almost every month and 2 weekend retreats! At our all day crops we have 4 make and takes - a card, a pocket page, a 12"x12" scrapbook page and a 3D item for everyone to make using product in their grab bags.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Crop Kingston's March Crop in support of Martha's Table. I was able to work on my swaps for Onstage in April - hard to believe April is next week already! For our Make & Takes we used the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper that was in each participant's grab bag.
Thank you to everyone who spent time crafting the day away on Saturday. It was the perfect day to hide inside while rain/sleet/snow fell! This month's crop was in support of Ronald MacDonald House Charities.
Thank you to everyone who registered for July's Crop Kingston All Day Crop in Support of Loving Spoonful!
I wasn't able to find the zoo pictures from our visit to the zoo in Winnipeg years ago but someday I will find them and put them into this layout!
At the crop we made projects using the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack and, gasp, no stamping! The first project is our pocket page. Punched and cut up some of the 3x4 cards to create this page.
Thank you for those that crafted this past Saturday at our all day crop in support of Relay For Life! I was able to work with May's Paper Pumpkin kit - Manly Moments and put labels on my new ink pads. It looked like a lot of others were busy creating all day as well!

Today at the crop I created projects using the Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin Kit. My first card followed the directions of the kit, aren't those mountains and trees great - pre-cut and sticky! Perfect card for Father's Day! And it was so simple to make!
Thank you all who participated in our April Crop in support of Partner's in Mission Food Bank, we raised $95.00. Next month we are supporting Relay For Life - details can be found here.

In this month's grab bag was the Bundle With Love Memories & More card pack. For the two projects I designed for our make and takes there is no stamping! The cards and stickers included in the card pack make this projects easy and quick! The blue elephant image on the bottom right pocket is punched from one of the 3x4 cards. This card pack has blue on one side and pink on the other! So the above pocket page can easily be created for a girl instead!
OnStage in London, Ontario was so much fun this past Saturday! We were given a brand new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue (starts in June), saw new ink pads and colours (too many new favs!), created 4 projects (I'll share these later), celebrated Stampin' Up!'s 30th year with Chocolate cupcakes (I might of had 2 of them) AND now I have so many ideas!

I'm sharing half of my projects with you today and the other projects tomorrow! I made 15 projects in total with the new items that were sent to me. This is my second time as a display stamper and although it is stressful, it is so much fun!
Beautiful day for some scrapbooking and paper crafts! Thanks to all who joined us today!

I designed the card and pocket page for this month's Make & Takes:
Each month my upline has a creative challenge for her team. This month she gave each of us a package of pre-cut designer series paper and asked us to create 3 projects! Above is what was in my packet. What an awesome challenge! I am not a fan of pinks so I hadn't purchased this paper pack yet and it is so much nicer than shown in the catalogue! The gold accents really stand out.
