Simple scrapbooking is sooooo necessary in the world of crafting – not every page has to be a work of art! I have people comment all the time about how they could never scrap like I do because they aren’t creative enough or they just don’t know how to put everything together. So – let me show you some simple pages that I completed at a weekend crop (hosted by fabulous consultant Rebecca Cross) using pictures and supplies that I purchased in 2006/2007 (GASP!). I don’t scrap in chronological order (double GASP!) – I am just too flighty to be confined by dates. I do collect coordinating papers, embellishments, photos, and memorabilia and put them in 12×12 clear bags to be ready to scrap when the feeling strikes. Super easy and efficient!
How simple is this? Simply start off with 2 sheets of Colonial White Cardstock as your bases. I cut two 2 inch strips of pattern paper and ran them across the top of each page and that was it for design! I did use some magic mesh (remember when that was THE RAGE? Well, obviously, it was about 6 or 7 years ago), bargain bin soccer ribbon, and an old pack of soccer embellishments. The real story here is my photos. Across the bottom I cut the photos into 4×4 squares – doesn’t matter if your photos are horizontal or vertical. To include a few more photos, I used a 4×6 flip flap with the horizontal photo. Twelve good size pictures on one layout – LOVE IT!!!! I used the Cricut for title and date and I was done. No journaling either, the pictures speak for themselves.
Here is another simple layout using an old kit of papers and stickers from Oriental Trading and our CTMH 12 inch flip flaps. Flip flaps are a MUST for sports layouts!!!! They are easy to use and so inexpensive – truly one of my FAVORITE products EVER! To order some flip flaps for your very own, click here.
