I've got some pages to share!
Sunday after work and after dinner I decided to get some more scrappy time in!
And next in my pile was my pregnancy announcement!!
I had no idea what I wanted to do with this page. I wanted to do something a little special, a little different.
So somehow I decided on a circle of buttons!
The "First Trimester" page goes with it, of course.
I started with the background paper and the brown... and of course the buttons! Ohhh the buttons. That was a lot of hot glue. And I learned how much it hurts when you try to hot glue a button to your thumb nail.
The blue I used for journaling and photo borders was chosen because it matched some of the buttons, and think ink that I used around the brown paper. I wish I had thought to use it on the first page though, to border the pictures rather than just doing the little photo corners (which I added after it was all glued down). I should have got both pages laid out before I started to glue.
Oh well. I do feel like the first page needs a little more something.. but don't know what. And overall I like the pages. And I like that I used a ton of buttons.
Painful as it was, it was kinda fun!
Then yesterday afternoon I was feeling physically drained and needed some relax time, so I spent the rest of the day scrapping!
Nooooot my favorite page. I tried to do a sketch. But I didn't have enough of the strips and I didn't want to cut into new paper just to make a few strips, so this is what I came up with, and it just looks too empty to me. But... good enough!
Again I didn't know what to do with this page! But this layout came easily to me, and once I saw the striped paper (which is glittery and shiny), and it was in a pack with coordinating colors, I knew I had to use it! The blue background and the orange are both lightly patterened. The yellow/orange wasn't part of the pack, just one I had that matched pretty well.There will be a page that goes with this one about the second trimester, but I didn't get to it last night. I should have time to do it next week!
I also made a little trip to Hobby Lobby this week! I really didn't buy a ton of scrappy stuff. Just some albums and sleeves (50% off!), a big tube of mixed flowers and leaves and some Stickles.
I think that's it.
But one of the albums I got, of course, is for Zane's first scrapbook. So excited to start that!
Kinda afraid I'll scrap every little moment and he'll end up with 300 albums by the time he's 18.. LOL
