I’m so excited that it’s raining hard enough not to have to work in the garden so I get to hang out in the craft room and play with another Creative Memories sketch. #CM2
I stuck fairly close to the sketch subbing in circles for flowers. I used some older papers from CM again, this time it was discover and delight mixed with rugged. The bear, paw prints and white title are not CM products.
I even used the circle cutting system to cut and as a tracing template for the brown pen lines on the circles. So fun to use tools I haven’t used in a while.
I totally missed playing along with Creative Memories World wise virtual crop. Finally made time tonight since it’s raining and the garden is pretty muddy. I used Sketch #CM11 #WWVC2020.
I flipped the layout so that right side is now on the left and I added embellishment clusters but other than that it’s pretty close to the original. I didn’t use CM products for the layout as I’m trying to use up kits that I have. This is 2018 Simple Stories “Happy trails”
Totally in love with this cluster as the owl is speaking to me. I feel like I need to escape from the here and now of this pandemic and hide out in nature.
Finally got back in the craft room aka guest room/ oldest daughters room. I had it all to myself from New Years till SanFrancisco shuttered the Job Corp site where Ashley is studying advanced culinary skills. Getting back in here required a chocolate bribe but I’m in and crafting again.
I had grand plans for participating in CM virtual crop the weekend before last. Was going to FaceTime with my friend Mary and knock out some layouts but life had other plans. I ended up driving to San Francisco and back to retrieve my eldest from the Job Corp campus on Monday 3/16 and was back by late evening on 3/17. With my new scrap room re occupied I curtailed my plans to scrap just on Saturday and not the Friday before. Then Saturday morning I got the call/ text that Mary had past. She finally succumbed to to her long battle with breast cancer. So I still scraped but only one layout during the virtual crop.
I used “A year to remember” collection for this layout of my husband and son making art to better understand physical disabilities. Added an extra photo to the layout but still has the overall feel of the sketch
I just finished a PL style album of my son and husbands trip to World Jamboree using the Imagine that line from CM. Since it was still out and I some great castle and star embellishments left I thought I'd make a layout documenting my sons Knights of the round table cub camp
I loosely followed the layout as my original intent was to have the 3 photos clustered in a heart-ish shape. but I couldn't work in the castle embellishment that way. I also have additional photos on the right side of the layout but they are placed higher on the page like the sketch. Now all that needs to happen is for my husband to finish the journaling.
I was prompted to get started again on my son's boy scout scrapbook from a facebook discussion on the Scraproom Facebook group asking what our scraping goals for 2020. I hadn't really thought about it but after reading everyone's replies about finishing projects, albums and layouts I thought what a better goal than to get to be close to current with his album.
