Summer Adventures!


Hey friends! Stephanie here, I’m back today to share a double page spread from my 6×8 summer adventure album. A couple of years ago I put together a summer album and was recently looking back through it and decided to do it again.
This album begins in May (since that’s when our summer officially starts) and goes through August.
It’s in a Project Life 6×8 Album and includes all the photos from pool days, outside adventures, summer playgroup, late night movies, etc. I also like to include fun pieces of memorabilia from our summer travels; popcorn buckets, movie stubs, flowers from the yard, drawings, etc.
This page is one of the first pages from May and was created using a mix of the Pool Side and Bright Side collections from Fancy Pants Designs.

I created the title, “SUMMER” using an easy cut file and my Silhouette Portrait. I’ve included the cut file if you’re interested in using it. You can download it by clicking on the link!
I simply cut the word out on white card stock and then fussy cut the pieces of patterned paper to fit behind the white outline of each letter.

I also used pieces from the ephemera packs to add a little more details to the 4×6 photos.

I’m having so much fun creating this album. I’m sharing the rest of the album and my process over at my blog, Craft His Love. Join me there and on Instagram for more inspiration!

Marco Polo, Splish Splash and Pool Fun!


Splish Splash!
Who is ready for summer! I have been having a great time documenting some of our memories from last summer using the Poolside  collection!
To create this page, I cut a large circle from some white cardstock and then popped it up with dimensional foam adhesive. I had some 1″ squares of paper left over from another project and added them around the back side of the large circle to fill in all the way around it. Once the circle was filled in, I popped the entire cardstock piece over top of another piece of patterned paper from the Poolside collection.

I decided to tear some strips of vellum and add them into the bottom of the circle area – to look like waves, and then tucked my photos in around them. I added a fun chipboard title from Poolside and some diecut ephemera to finish off the page!

Sunny Greece!


Today, the lovely Anna has a fabulous layout to share!

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here today with a travel themed layout. We visited Greece almost 10 years ago and I still didn’t scrapbook most of the pictures. I didn’t have time to make an album with all the photos and keepsakes and I am starting to forget all those pretty landscapes and memories. I decided to use some of the pictures from my favorite spot from the trip. I treat it like a teaser before starting my album :)
I reached for the “Poolside” collection. It’s full of pool related items but it also have some tropical leaves, sun and waves, that reminds me of vacation time.
Blue and yellow are the colors that matches Greece perfectly. Blue sky and sea and yellow sun and sand. Even the Greek flag is light blue. That’s why I combined those two colors on my pages adding white cardstock. I used stripes of “Fun in the sun” paper along with blue paper from “The bright side” collection called “The bright side”.
I picked tropical leaves and flowers from “Poolside” ephemera pack and cut few more from “Summer lovin'” paper. I arranged them around my two pictures.
Big sun and bits and pieces from cardstock sticker sheet were the perfect finish to my page.
I added my journaling on one of the cards from “Tag set” from “The bright side” collection. Few arrows from “Puffy sticker shapes” added some fun texture and dimension.
That is all for today. I hope you felt inspired to reach for your travels photos and scrap them to bring back all those great memories.
Thank you for stopping by.

Family Time


I was so excited to create a layout using the new On Our Way line, the colors are awesome! I picked neutral colored photos so they would pop of all the bright colors.

Fancy Pants Designs Collections Used: On Our Way
The family time tag in the tags bag was the first thing I knew I wanted to use on my layout, and I actually built it around the tag.

I added a few pieces of ephemera at the bottom next to the journaling to finish it up.

The Best Memories


Hello, friends!
 Hi there, today I am sharing a favorite memory from my oldest son’s senior prom. We were busy taking pictures and Davis starts pulling at my arm to ask me when he needed to go get in the photo. Of course, everyone was thrilled to have him join in.
Similar to my last blog post, I couldn’t resist using a big title. This time I used gold cardstock, and added in some of the fun letter stickers from the Joy Parade line.

I’ve been hanging on to the pretty crochet flowers in this line, but the pink one was the perfect accent for my photo and journaling.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

A Pair of Notebooks…


Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new project using the Poolside Collection. For today’s project, I decided to make a pair of notebooks.


I started by cutting some sheets of regular copy paper of about 3 x 4 inches. Then, I put together about fifteen sheets and I attached them with the help of a stapler. 

After that, I cut two pieces of pattern paper of 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches and I folded them leaving about 1/2 inch for the spine of the notebook. Then I adhered the sheets of paper I cut before and also created a pocket to add some tags, photos, etc.

Here is the first notebook:




Here is the second one:




I also created these charms with some embroidery thread. I also added some sequins and some heart puffy stickers from The Bright Side Collection.



Did you like these mini notebooks? I hope yes!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please, let me know if you have any questions.

Until next time!
