I love this Christmas spread from our first Christmas together. I love the silver cut out snowflakes, the hints of red and the cut out of Jake coming out of the photo.

I even used material! The silver "snake skin" was a scrap from my sewing box. 
 
 
I love the collage feel that is brought to this layout...
 
 
This is from our visit a couple years ago to Texas. 


So fun. 

It was so nice to get away from work and our regular "to dos" plus we made some great memories. 

Naturally, I had to make an adorable page spread for the occasion.

Favorites:

1. Color scheme

2. So may different types of paper!

3. Incorporating pattern on navy blue paper on p.2 to large faint yellow design on right bottom corner

4. Mix matched stripes on page 2

5. "time", "always", "life" sticker brads on p. 1

6. The mustard brads [p.2 on the stripes]

7. The photos, I love these pictures...
 
 
Favorites:

1. "Conference" lettering; I used rub-ons and also a fine point sharpie to match the style for the letters I didn't have.

2. Picture layout; I really like the smaller pictures I used (close up of me with Jake's hat & back of riding horse) to add more layers to the page,

3. The dried rose
 
 
p.1

1. Gold Elements; Diamond brads & chains

2. The lace (both pages)

3. Incoporating the peice-y circles & half circles

4. Using arrow for "up" on p. 1

5. Pops of blue; dots on p. 1 are scraps from hole puncher!

6. Letters for title; I used Corina's cricket. So handy! There is a glare but I also used the same lettering on   p. 2 for my "I" at the being of my explanation paragraph and for the "{ }" symbols

7. "I love Jake" picture. Great pictures make a cute page 100 times better.
p. 2

This one is from our vacation to Lake Powell last June. It was so fun. You get really pooped out though being in the hot playing all day so we took a nap and Corina got some funny pictures. I had to use them, of course!

Favorites:

1. Waves on both pages

2. Pictures "hanging" by clothes pins on p.1

3. Different patterned pages for "SLEEP"

4. Square folds on bottom of p 1 and bottom left of p.2 
*I made the squares by cutting squares, all the same size, and then cutting circles that where larger than the squares but just large enough for the corners of the squares to touch the rim of the circle. I then folded the excess circle over the squares. I used the same paper for all my circles and a couple different kinds for my squares.


5. The typewriter on p.2; I drew it with ink! So proud.
 
 
Favorites:

1. "ZOO"; The cut out, the pictures behind the "o"s, and the twine wrapped around.
2. Green burlap
3. Adorable animal pop up stickers
4. Bee "flying" through page with dashes
 
 


I had a lot of fun incorporating fish, fishing line, hooks etc. in this page.

Who new fish could be so artist inspiring!


Favorites:

1. Spelling "love" with the conjoining fish line made of string from Jake's pole to mine.

2. Using the gold wire to bend into fish hooks.

3. The white pen on the blue & brown background.

4. Making large fish for page 2 hooked

5. Cutting out image of me sitting on the bottom of page 1.
