I haven’t been scrapbooking much the last couple of months, and when I do dust off my neglected hobby, I feel like I am just doing the same thing over and over again. Hiking photos, blue and white papers (usually from the same big slab of paper I bought at Costco a couple of years ago because I am too lazy to look for anything else), Heidi Swapp transparent snowflakes (ditto) and a computer font for the title. It’s all about the laziness; my scrapbooking crap is in such a horrid state of disarray that it is impossible to find what I am looking for and, frankly, not very tempting to sit down and make a page. Basically I need to just suck it up and clean.
Ali Edwards used a digital template in the current issue of Creating Keepsakes that I just fell in love with, so I had to try it. I wanted to stuff more photos from our hike to Camp Muir in there, so I made a second page using the top of the template. Easy and fast, huzzah!
(Speaking of Ali, this post made me really want to get into scrapbooking again.)
I made this next layout for the February issue of CK – the photos are from our amazing trip to Jade Lake last summer. The paper is blue but at least I didn’t use those transparent snowflakes.
