My Digital Studio {Winter Scrapbook Pages}

Page 1 of the layout. I used My Digital Studio Christmas Cocoa DSP & accessories. See page 2 below.

I print these pages myself, on my Epson Stylus Photo 1400 printer and 11″x17″ glossy presentation paper. Then, I trim the page down to 11″ x 11″ and mount it onto a 12″x12″ sheet of colored card stock.

My Digital Studio Scrapbook Pages {Flying a Kite}

My 3 1/2 year old recently got her first kite. Neither my husband nor I are experienced kite fliers, so we tried our best to “teach” our daughter the ropes.

She didn’t need much instruction though, and basically got the hang of it all on her own. She did think it was pretty funny to run straight toward my husband so the kite would crash into him when she passed by.

I’d also like to note her footwear: the ladybug rain boots were all her idea!

I made these 12×12 scrapbook pages using My Digital Studio (MDS). The background paper is called Spring Shades and it’s so pretty. The papers are slightly distressed and faded, with floral or botanical images. I chose the green here to go with all the grass in my photos. Below (left) is a sample of the other papers in the collection.Other elements I used in MDS for these pages were Rough Type Alphabet stamp set (above) for the letters, Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, and the scallop edge punch. My font colors are Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip.

6×6 Scrapbook Page Layout {Welcome Neighbor DSP & Sweet Pea Stitched Felt}

It’s been ages since I’ve made a scrapbook page. I don’t normally make 6×6 Scrapbook Page Layouts, but I had this picture of my daughter on my desk, then I saw this cute patterned paper from Welcome Neighbor, and I just went from there. Since the page is small, I wanted the focus to be on the photo.

The 4″x4″ photo is layered onto a 4 1/4″ square of Old Olive card stock. I then took a 4 1/4″ x 2″ strip of Old Olive and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to make the scalloped edge, tucking it under the Old Olive photo mat.

In the upper corner, I added Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers and leaves, layering them with Glue Dots and attaching it to the page with a large Glue Dot. It gives the page a pop of color and since she’s looking up in that direction in the picture, it was a good place to put the flower.

I kept journaling to a minimum so the focus would be on the picture. The sentiment “Everything grows with love” is from Love Matters (retired–but has many great sayings in handwriting style font). I inked up the different parts of the stamp using the Chocolate Chip and Rose Red Markers, then stamped it onto Very Vanilla using the Stamp-a-majig to get a 2 line setup.

Next, I punched out the Very Vanilla card stock using the Curly Label Punch and sponged the edges using a mixture of Close to Cocoa Reinker and Champagne Shimmer Paint. I just add a drop of Reinker and a drop of Shimmer Paint into an old brad or button container, dip a Sponge Dauber in, and start sponging. This combo makes a really nice Bronze colored shimmery ink, which goes great with the sepia tones in the picture. I attached it to the page using Stampin Dimensionals.

That’s it–pretty simple. I think I like the 6″x 6″ size page for 1 photo layouts. I will be trying more 6″x6″ pages to see what other types of layouts work best. Thanks for stopping by today!
