As you know I spent a long span of time not doing much in my craft room. That left my kids scrap calendars way behind. And one of the very reasons I do these calendars is so that I DON’T fall behind. Go figure! At any rate, my goal is to get everything caught up by the end of the year and I am well on my way. I have gotten through October for my youngest child and September for the other two.
Here are July and August layouts for each of my three kids. Each of these layouts had their own spark of inspiration. You can see a note on each photo about what inspired the page (other then the photos/story of course) Hope you find some inspiration from them in some way.
*inspiration: The leftover “Friends” rubon from a rubon set along with my Cricut Light Meow cartridge.
*inspiration: The postage stamp frame (aka Technique Tiles) from Technique Tuesday and the fact that I ran out of the letter “e” in my alpha set!
*inspiration: leftovers from a monthly kit and some beautiful buttons that I haven’t put away yet.
*inspiration: I just loved this little piece of burlap I had from some kit. Got my mind rolling in a “nature” way and I searched my stash and found some great nature stickers and seashell themed chunky shapes. Sorry the title “Creature Love” didn’t photograph well at all.
*inspiration: In searching for an energetic paper for this layout I found this star paper and it led the way to the rest of the page.
*inspiration: I scraplifted this one from Creating Keepsakes magazine. There was a layout in there with borders built with circular elements and I just lifted that idea.
