New Scrapbooking Layouts!

Hello!! Happy Monday. I’m so happy to stop in today and share some brand new scrapbooking layouts!

I took a long break from traditional 12×12 scrapbooking, and I recently got the itch to just pick up some blank paper and start again. I kind of lost my interest in it, and tried different formats (like traveler’s noteboooks), but I’m so happy to be back in my comfort zone with the 12×12 format.

Here are several new layouts!

First up, I wanted to use these huge tropical flower die-cuts (from Michael’s last year). So, I created a cluster of florals. I needed a photo, so I looked through my camera roll, and found this cute one from Snapchat. It worked perfectly together!Scrapbook page | JM Creates BlogNext up, I found these banners from Melissa Frances in my stash, and I wanted to create a layout around them. The colors fit perfectly with one of my new cherry blossom photos from this spring. I love using doilies too, so you’ll often see that element on my layouts.Scrapbook page | JM Creates BlogSpeaking of doilies… I wanted to use the rest of my Maggie Holmes butterflies from her sticker book, so I spread them out on the top half of my layout. I used a cute photo collage of spring pictures of the birds. Scrapbook page | JM Creates BlogNext, I have been inspired by butterflies lately, so I found these stitched butterflies from Dear Lizzy. I cut the butterflies into several pieces and spread them all around the page.Scrapbook page | JM Creates BlogFinally, I just wanted to make a simple page all about pink, so I used a rose stencil from Dear Lizzy and misted the roses all over the page. The papers are from Felicity Jane and the stickers from Maggie Holmes. I used a cute recent photo of this cute flower arrangement my mom bought me.Scrapbook page | JM Creates BlogThat’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed this look at my recent work. I hope there’s more to come soon! πŸ™‚heart_jen

Fly…

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, 
it became a butterfly.

This lovely butterfly was in my backyard this afternoon.  I’ve been seeing butterflies everywhere lately…..
They inspire me to grow and fly as high as I can go!

Seeing Butterflies….

Here are a few lovely pics I took yesterday of the sweet butterflies in our backyard… this year in particular they’ve been all over, especially in our butterfly bush. They seriously play out there all day long, because they can, I guess πŸ™‚ They’re out there right now; I can see them outside my scrap room window. How cool is that?
