Progress with my scrap pile

I'm making progress. I really like this idea of using my scraps. I'm forcing myself to use what I have and that's a good feeling. Using the Pagemaps sketch book is also very helpful. I tend to get scrappers block, so using a sketch will jump start my creativity. It will also remind me to use Cricut cuts and embellishments that I tend to forget about. Here is a picture of my first layout and the sketch I used.
For the Cricut cuts I used Storybook for large scallop rectangle cut at 11" and the scallop circle cut at 4".  I used Home Decor for the swirls cut at 3" and George for the circle cut at 3.5".
The sketch is for an 8 1/2 x 11"  single page, but I always make 12x12 double page layouts. I really liked the sketch though so I modified it to fit my needs. I really like how it turned out. I left space for a title and  journaling. I will add those once I decide which pictures to use.  Come by tomorrow for sketch and layout #2.

    Sorry, I still can't get it to let me log into my GoogleAccount but I think that's a bigger problem than you having word verification turned on : ( . I love your layout & the colors you chose...can't wait to see what you have to share with us tomorrow. I'm gonna try the anonymous route for now ; )...wish me luck!

  5. Beautiful layout! Love the colors and the swirls. I recently bought Page Maps 2. Guess I should pull it out.

    Great Job!

  6. You just answered my question to a previous post. =)


Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
