Scrapbook Layout Share - BBQ

We had so much fun at our very first BBQ in our new home. We did a combo of Labor day celebration and my friend's birthday.




The paper was perfect for this event. The manufacturer is Best Creations Inc. Cute, right?
I used my ribbon punch to put ribbon on the pictures and did a simple rectangle journal tag
right below. "Get Cooking" is from Cricut Design Space - Country life. I found some orange
glitter paper and used it for this title. Buttons seemed to look cute and to bring out more of the yellow from the pictures at the bottom of the page.


I used part of a cardboard box, the variegated part, and used that for the photo mats. The food and BBQ title came from Cricut Design Space - Block Party. The journal tag was from a Recollections sticker set I'd bought around the holidays. The circles were backed up by an old piece of cork that was in my scraps. I felt like there needed to be something above the cut lines of the middle piece of paper so I added brown ric rac. 

Here's how I put it all together.

Great Nephew Max and Gakie

When my great nephew, Max, was first leaning how to talk he'd call me Gakie because he couldn't get the Great Aunt Kimmy out. Way too many words. He's so stinkin' cute. Now that he's going into Kindergarten in September he calls me Aunt Kimmy most of the time but if I get him laughing he'll say, "Silly Gakie." My heart melts.

My niece-in-law came over with Max at Christmas time. The teacher in me instantly started thinking of a project to do with a 5 year old.  Decorate cookies! Of course.

After we were all on a complete sugar high...lol...he opened up his presents. Star Warz is his thing now. I spoiled him with a t-shirt, characters and a backpack which he'll use for his first day of Kindergarten this year. He's just grown up so fast.

I didn't do a video on this layout.



These papers are from a DCWV paper stack that I had in my stash. I think it was from the "All Boys" paper pack.

"Boys will be Boys" is from the Boys will be Boys Cricut cartridge (is that we still call them if they are on CDS?)

The star border is from Ribbons and Rosettes. There are 2 layers to this but I just used the top layer. I made 4 strips of 3 inches each long and 1 inch high.

The faux zipper is ribbon which I bought a while back. It's from the MultiCraft Imports.

I used my Selphy to print out the 2 x 4 phots and matted them with a dark blue card stock.

The arrow embellishments in the right top and bottom left corner are from My Minds Eye and the green dots on the top left photo and bottom right photo are from The Paper Studio.

I hand wrote the journal and cut it up so there were strips instead of it being one solid piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Valentine's 2017 Card Series #4 - I Freakin' Love You

Creating a Valentine card for my 18 year old son was a little challenging. I still see him as my little boy! Here's what I came up with. I've included the video (below) showing how I put it together. I did not include the black score tape in the video. I put it on both sides of the stripes. They weren't matching up and needed to cover it. I actually like how it turned out.




Here's how I made it:
