I scrap, too

I want to start posting more of my layouts. I've noticed that since entering into card challenges, I've made my LOs simpler and quicker to finish. I don't necessarily want that, so I'm challenging myself to share more of my scrappings. Click on the photo to see the details.
(And I gotta get better at photographing LOs. They don't stand on their own like cards do.)

The first thing you should know is that I refuse to create a LO with one photo. It just seems like such a waste to me unless you're gonna frame it and hang it on your wall. That makes sense. Yes, the one photo LOs look cleaner and are more publishable, but they're just not practical when you've got a kajillion photos of this cutie-patootie.

Anyhoo..... this is one sheet of patterned paper (DCWV). I cut around the "overlapping" pieces with an exacto knife and tucked the photos underneath. So in love with that look. I also added a few gem brads to give the LO some dimension and more shine.

Whatcha think? Are you a one-photo scrapper? I love you anyway.


  1. Super cute LO Summer!

    Yes, sometimes there's a photo that I think calls for it's own layout, so that's what I do. For me, it really all just "depends"!!

  2. Very cute :) You should post more LO's. In the past I only scrapped 2 or more photo's on a layout. Now I'm hooked on doing one at a time. It's hard to pick one when you have soooooo many.

  3. So cute!!!!! And you know I'm not a one photo per page scrapper! I'm like a six photos per page scrapper, but my layouts aren't nearly as ornate as yours! Maybe someday!!!!!

  4. I do love those one photo pages, but they are kind of silly. This is way cute Summer!
