Behold these January Lay Outs

Following is a mixture of digital pages & traditional pages - can you tell which is which?

I made this for the Hybrid Scrapbooking class I am taking at Big Picture Scrapbooking. We were supposed to use some elements from a digital kit. The Journaling box and the diamond background paper just behind the photos is from a Sande Krieger kit.

This is just an overview of our month and was done in the Design Your Life class by Cathy Zielske. The template is by Cathy and the focus for that week was on "white space."
Materials used include: Creativity by Crystal Funky Fresh Paper Collection See-through Polka's paper, Kate Pertiet Little Prince Kit green paper, Kate Pertiet Journaling spots, LivE Designs squiggle border.

Again, template by Cathy. Were supposed to use purple, green, black and orange in our color scheme as part of our weekly color challenge. I so wanted to use the sticker sheets from Ailin's potty training period. She finally made it over the hump in January! I used all my own materials here - the papers were made by putting textures behind them to make them appear crumpled or faded. That was a fun new discovery for me.

Again with the white space! This was also a template designed by Cathy Zielske. I was running out of things to scrapbook about, as you can see. But, it is always good to pause and take notice of where you are right now in your life and to make pages about YOURSELF! You can look back and laugh (or sigh) and your kids will appreciate it someday!
Materials used include the following: Jessica Sprague Windsong Kit yellow paper, blue paper, blue brush, Bleeding Cowboy font for title.

For the hybrid class, we were supposed to use that black and white label on a page. See the label? It's behind the word FRIENDS. I love these felt lace borders - so pretty and sturdy at the same time, and they house the rhinestones so nicely.

For Cathy's class, the topic this time was "unity." We have decided to do more day trips to Tokyo because we need the exercise, but mostly because Yusuke refuses to drive the car anywhere. So, just to get out of the house on weekend, we have compromised by taking the train to Tokyo and exploring various neighborhoods. Yes, it is fun. But, I have to admit that I would MUCH RATHER be listening to Ryan Seacrest's Top 40 in the car while the kids sleep in the back!!!
Materials used include the following: LivE Designs Sun Fun Green paper, Kate Pertiet Brushed Petal set red paper, Abstract flower brushes downloaded from Eezy brushes for free.
