I went on a weekend scrap retreat this past weekend. I decided I was not going to do digital this weekend, but rather try to use up some of my stash of “traditional” scrapbooking supplies. I really enjoyed playing with all my stuff and fiddling around with my Cricut, Glimmer Mists, and all the other goodies in my stash.
Here are some of the pages I did:
Using up some of the Close To My Heart papers.
Another use-up-the-paper layout. I had that heart patterned paper but had never used it. Loved the pattern but had to get creative with using it so the hearts didn’t dominate the layout. I like how it turned out. I still need to go back and write my story (in that big white patch on the right page) but I was not in a journaling mood at the time.
This is another CTMH layout – one I had done as part of a workshop last winter but never used because we had no snow! I had to get a little creative with my pictures because it was designed for vertical pictures and I had a ton of horizontal, but I’m happy with how it turned out.
These two layouts (above & below) are from a SEI kit I had gotten in October. I loved, loved, loved the papers. There were iridescent papers, felted papers, all kinds of beautiful papers. I used to get their kits as part of Club SEI. After using a few of the kits this weekend, I started wondering if I wanted to sign up for the club again. They have BEAUTIFUL papers and the kits are really nice.
That cream paper on the left page has silver iridescent leaves on it. I don’t know if you can see them in this photo, but the paper is gorgeous.
This was using up a free kit I won at a crop at Archiver’s back in February.
And this was the Crop Mania goodie at the Archiver’s March crop. I modified the title using my Cricut and some plain white paper, but I like how the layout turned out.
And these last three were just using up some more papers I had one or two of but loved. And these 5×7’s of the girls I just loved and couldn’t not put in the scrapbook.
And this one is another kit from Archiver’s – I think it was the February goodie at their Crop Mania.
Tomorrow, an update on my Project Life album. Yeah, I worked on that, too. :-)

They look great! I’d love to scrap with you. I am always looking for new ideas and I don’t always feel very creative but I want to be. Like I said, I have kind of lost my oomph lately. But these look really good!
I love your layouts. I haven’t done any scrapbooking in a while, just doing cards here and there. Looking at these makes me want to do some. Guess I’ll have to get out and take some photos and get busy.
Wendy & ‘Nay, you both just have to DO IT! Once you start, your “funk” will end and you’ll get back into the groove of scrapping again. I wish I lived closer to you both so I could scrap with you… of course, given where you both live, that is physically impossible. Wait, I’m halfway between you both… y’all can come here and scrap with me! 😉
