California Album - Universal Studios

All the scrapbooking I have done over the years, this California album is the most rewarding experience by far!!!  I am just having so much fun putting it together.  I have never actually completed an album before.

Here is the next page I have completed.  A 2-page spread for our day at Universal Studios.

I included 8 photos and still had room for some fun embellishments too :)

I made my own title on my Silhouette (yeah me!!).  

I included this cute word paperclip to emphasize how much fun these guys were having.

The photos are displayed on little handmade file folders and I added stickers to add some detail.

The tour of the backlot was very entertaining.  We had the opportunity to see all sorts of places we recognized from movies.  

Hope you will check back again.....I will have lots more to share.

Gotta Love This - California Album!

Although it has been a while since I have posted anything here, I have been busy scrapbooking.  I am busy working on Jason's California album and making great progress.

I have been using pocket pages (divided sleeves for my photos) to speed up the process a bit.  It is a really fun way to scrapbook and very rewarding because you actually feel like you are accomplishing something.  I am well over half way through the photos and the album is really taking shape.

This is the page that I finished up tonight.

I used up the last of the photos from our hike in Malibu.  I even pulled out some stamps that hadn't even been inked yet.  

The tree is also a stamp (I did some paper-piecing with it)!!  I did my journaling using my Silhouette and my sketch pens (there is no other way to journal, in my opinion).

I recently acquired this when I did a little online shopping at Kerri Bradford's site (dangerous place).  I cut it twice and offset it slightly to help it 'pop' a bit.

More stamps and a button from my stash.  It is really nice to be using things I have had for sooooo long.

I'm off to work on another spread......visit again for another peek!!
