Hey friends, Becki here. Do you have a specific theme, holiday, activity, or topic that you love to scrapbook? I do – it’s everyday moments. I LOVE taking those little moments that happen everyday, creating beautiful layouts for my family’s albums. The moment I documented on the layout I have to share with you today is about my son and his stuffed puppy “Duke”. When we went on a road trip to see my brother and his family this fall we accidentally left Duke at my brother’s house. My nieces found Duke a few hours after we left and quickly packaged him and sent him to my son. My son spent a VERY long week waiting for Duke to land on our doorstep. When Duke finally arrived, I snapped a quick photo and sent it to my brother’s family thanking them for sending Duke to us. This is not a huge event, a holiday, or a birthday. But, it is a memory that would probably be forgotten if I hadn’t taken the photo and written the story. This is why I scrapbook. I want to preserve these little moments and memories that happen daily in our little family.
I used a basic design with one photo to create this layout. I reached for the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection. This is my favorite boy themed collection (as evidenced by THIS project, and also THIS project).
I combined a three letter sticker fonts to create the title to the left of the photo. Three embellishment clusters surround the photo to make the photo the focal point on the layout.
The embellishments I chose support the story told on the layout. The puppy sticker, the map sticker, and the puppy die cut all help tell the story of Duke being left behind.
I printed the journaling and cut it into small strips that fit into the striped patterned paper.
What are your favorite types of memories to document – a specific theme, holiday, activity, or topic? I’d love to hear about it, so please let me know below in the comments!
Happy creating my friends, I’ll see you again next Thursday.
