#DATENIGHT (Be Real: Instagram photos)

Hi friends!  Today I have a “Be Real” post today featuring Instagram photos, using the May Kit Here & Now.  I really love this prompt, because I often post photos that I know I’ll want to scrap.  It was nice to go through my Instagram photos, and remember “oh yeah, I wanted to scrap about that, but never did!”  My layout #DATENIGHT is about some fancy events that my husband and I went on last year…special, because we NEVER go on fancy date nights, lol!

To create my layout, I cut out 3 pieces of pattern paper to the size of my photo.  I adhered the paper to a piece of white cardstock, and then sewed a cross/grid between the paper.  I added my photo with foam tape, to give it a little lift.  Then, I embellished the squares with various pieces from the kit that went with my date night theme.  I love the journaling card, and how it looks like a ticket stub.  I added my title to the bottom of the layout (I really love this alpha set from the May embellishment add-on You + Me).  Then, I noticed that my layout was looking a little bottom heavy, so I added a little strip of pattern paper to the top, and sewed it.  To finish my layout, I added a few heart embellishments and ink splatters.

I love how my layout turned out, and I’m finally glad I scrapped these photos…especially since one of them was taken over a year ago!

Have a fabulous day!

Be Real: Instagram Photo Album

Hi Scrapbook Circle fans!  I’m trying something a little different for this month’s Be Real post.  Each month a couple of creative team members are assigned to use Instagram photos on a layout or a pocket scrapbooking page.  I decided to change it up this month by creating a Be Real instagram photo album instead.

I loved the papers and embellishments that were included in the May Here & Now kit and coordinating add-ons.  I started off my insta album by cutting up the corrugated white cardstock included in the main kit.  It is thick and versatile, so I decided that it would make a great surface for my pages.  First, I used a paper trimmer and trimmed white corrugate pieces into 7 5″x 5″ square pieces.  I purchased a patterned paper add-on this month, in order to create this album you would need to have extra corrugated paper on hand or you could cut your pages to 4″x 4″ each and one sheet should do the trick.

After cutting up my corrugated background pages, I then cut up pieces of patterned papers from the main kit and May add-on kits measuring 5″ x 5″ each.  I then placed each cut patterned paper on each corrugated piece.  Once I got all of my papers placed, I used my crop a dile to punch through each page, and then adjoined them all using a jump ring.

Next, I printed off a couple of Instagram photos and a couple of small wallet sized photos.

Once the photos were in place I used a lot of embellishments, Thickers, thread, spray ink, lace netting and a couple of other items to finish each page.

My last page of the album is my “favorites” page. I used a tag (included in the main kit) to journal a few things about our special day.

Overall, I’m so happy with how this “Be Real” mini album turned out!

Mood Board Inspired by Gina Lideros

Hi everyone, Gina here today to share my take on the February Mood Board with you.12541016_10207487533481542_4354886348085089036_n

 

 

There are so many things to love about the mood board this month, I was inspired by colors, black and white striped, silver design, gold and patterned pieced heart.

For my challenge this month I used the main February Only You kit paired with the Date Night add-on.

 

Me + You

 

I used a cut file along with my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut several patterned papers from the main kit.  I placed them on a gray cardstock background and added splashes of paint, photo and embellishments.
