I finally have new pictures to scrap. Most of them are from our trip to the beach last weekend. I know those get old after a while, but what can I do? The beach is a big part of our life here.


The scrapbook base is a 6″ square of textured Wild Wasabi.

I didn’t like the color when it first came out, but now I use it all the time. I will be sad when it retires this summer.

When I saw the Carousel Notes in the Occasional mini, I knew I wanted those for scrapbooking.

I added 1/2″ chocolate circle punchouts in each scallop and cut just a tad of the right hand side off.

For the center I cut my photo, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip cardstock with my Coluzzle and taped those layers down. Next I paper pierced all around it.

I added Love & Happiness Rubons on the left hand side of my Wasabi base. I love the way they look. Of course I had to try the Chocolate Rubons first! LOL The sentiment and the flower in my Pewter Build a Brad are both rubons as well. The flowers underneat the brad are from the Flower Fusion tin.

The sentiment was added to a Shimmery White large oval punchout that was paper pierced. The flower is punched out of Pumpkin Pie with the Three for you Flower punch. I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie and added a Pewter Brad in it’s center.

Where I had cut the scallops off my Soft Sky Carousel Note, it looked a little bare. So I added Double Stitched Pomegranate ribbon with some Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware.

 While I was scrapping my baby girls picture my neighbor Cheryl scrapped a picture of her precious baby girl.


Isn’t her girl beautiful?

Cheryl and her family went with us to the beach last Sunday and I snapped this picture.

Cheryl chose Blush Blossom as the scrapbook base.

The picture was cut down to a 4″ square and layered first on a 4 1/4″ square of Chocolate Chip and a 4 3/4″ piece of Taken with Teal. She added a dotted border with a white gel pen.

Cheryl made her big flower out of a Shimmery White scallop punchout. She cut lines toward the middle of the scallop and sponged the edges with Blush blossom. Next she added a Blush Flower that was punched with the Boho Blossom Punch. Her flower center is a Pewter Build a Brad with center that was stamped with Small Flowers.

The sentiment from One of a Kind was inked up with Chocolate Chip Marker on Shimmery White and punched out with the Designer Label punch. That punch is perfect for the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware piece.

The small flower was punched out with the Three for You punch and a styled silver brad was added in its center.

  3. Ok I need to take your lead and scrapbook some 6 x 6 pages. Now I’m not a scrapper by any means…but I’m hoping I can get something accomplished. Maybe a smaller page like this is where I need to start?!
    Both the pages are wonderful!

  4. I just love the use of carousel notes on the 6×6 page! Gorgeous! I so love doing 6×6 pages better than anything else. Like a card, I can whip one out quickly! I spend days most times on my 12×12 pages (just one page) and then I get frustrated about not having a finished album!
