Busy Scrappy Sunday

I'm leaving for a road trip this week and I wanted everything done - laundry, chores, scrapbooking. Seems so inconsequential but I'm going on a long trip where I hope to take lots of photos and I plan to use my Scraptastic kit for the entire road trip. 

I did it. I am scrapbooked up to date (today) and packed to go. I did six (SIX) layouts in a few hours and I really like how they all came out. I even used up my stash of the Crate Paper Pier and other "stuff." I'm really making headway into the stuff I have (and I have not brought anything in MONTHS!)

We've packed a lot of living in a few short days. We visited the National Armory, Tyler Arboretum, a Friend's swimming pool, Popcorn Buddha, and my three year old daughter loosing her front teeth.

Cat Scrapbook Layout and Husband & Wife Scrapbook Layout

More layouts without thought to manufacture or series. Using whatever is at hand and hoping to be caught up by Sunday! 

My mom and her cat Snowball. That cat is even more antisocial than anything and that's the closest it let me get to it. I used Elle's Studios, miscellaneous Thickers, enamel dots, wood veneers and a generic tag. 

This is just a scrappy layout.. I used Teresa Collins, Elle's Studios, Basic Grey and American Craft Thickers with Mister Huey's spray. This is my husband and I at the Tyler Arboretum. The kids will be in another layout, this just happened to be a nice photo of us and it deserved it's own layout.

Broccoli & Chocolate Scrapbook Layout

I was just using out my stash here. I have some echo Park, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Glitz Designs and buttons. 

Simple fast layout! Oh and my middle daughter does eat chocolate covered broccoli (gross!)

Godzilla Scrapbook Layout

After I did the title on this layout I realized I wanted to use King Kong instead of Godzilla.  I had already glued it down but Godzilla works anyway - this is my middle son who literally climbs the walls all day in the summertime.

For this layout I used the skyline from the Scraptastic kit, wood veneers from leftover stash, American CraftThickers, simple stories paper, Bella Boulevard paper, American craft paper from an old kit, Teresa Collins enamel dots and lots and lots of memento ink to dye the wood veneers. I got the idea to back the wood skyline with the vellum from Mercy Tiera.

My goal is to be updated so that I can use the July Scraptastic kit for all of my summer layouts.

March 2014 Scraptastic Kit Layout Shares

I'm getting close to catching up! The March Kit was cool but I'm no longer loving the colors ... They're getting kind of gender specific but maybe it's because I choose the most feminine kits. 

I did six layouts from this kit and had one sheet of cardstock left.

February 2014 Scraptastic Kit Club

Just keep swimming is what Dorie says! Slowly catching up to the kits piling up on my desk.

I just ordered the add on, by accident, so it's a short share! Even the add ins produce three layouts, pretty impressive in my mind!

January 2014 Scraptastic Kit Club: Baby It's Cold Out & Tongue Tied

I've had a rough winter. I was sick most of the winter and rounded it out with an almost week long hospital stay. To say that scrapbooking wasn't done is an understatement! 

Today was the first time I scrapbooked since January and I feel quite rusty but I feel good getting it done. I'm scrapping the kits in order and pulling out pictures to go with the kits and sticking it all together. I figure if I end up in the hospital again, I can bring my kits with me instead of watching relentless TV!

The kits I used was Tongue Tied and Baby It's Cold Outside kits from Scraptastic January 2014. 

I'll do a layout share via YouTube when I'm able to sit at my desk again, I'm hoping to get April up and shared before April is done!
