The Best of Times Layout

Best-of-Times-Croptoberfest-Kit Layout-Project

Hello everyone. Just recently, I came across a photo on my Facebook “On This Day” feed and came across a photo that I never scrapped. It was a favorite of mine too, but at the time, I did not have the right papers or embellishments to use for the layout. Until, almost four years later… As you can see, I do not scrapbook in chronological order; I scrapbook the photos that inspire me to scrapbook; photos and memories that I love…

The Croptoberfest Project Recipe Kit was perfect for these photos. The colors and patterns were just what I was looking for. And of course, I fell in love with the stickers. I just couldn’t stop adding them to the layout!

Toil & Trouble: BOO!

Growing up I have to admit Halloween was not my favourite time of year, but after having children that has changed!  I love helping them figure out their costumes, carving pumpkins and decorating for Halloween.  We usually try to be creative and make our costumes ourselves.  Who knew I would actually be sad that I have only one Trick or Treater left in the house now!

The fall is my favourite time of year for photos as I love the oranges, reds and yellows of the season.  So creating Halloween pages is fun for me because I have lots of photos to choose from and Toil & Trouble to play design with!

Virtual Holiday Crop: Challenge 4-Color

Welcome back!

How are your projects coming along?  Did you make time for a chocolate break?  If so, that means you have energy and are ready to keep going!

Color palettes are always so fabulous to use when creating a layout.

Sometimes it means that I work within one paper collection, and other times it means that I pull pieces from several paper collections.

But, how do you know where to start?

Creative Memories has a board on our Pinterest Page:  Creative Memories Pinterest Color Inspiration Board.  This is a great place to start for color inspiration.

With the holidays right around the corner, this combination jumped out at me, with the traditional colors.
