October PageMaps

Hello October! It's the beginning of the month and that means it's time for another PageMaps layout. Over the past few months I have had been in a creative rut. The only place where I haven't felt stuck was when I work with Becky's sketches.

I chose today's sketch for a couple of reasons. First I love how this sketch uses a traditional 4x6 photo. Second while I have always been more of a multi-photo scrapbooker as my children have gotten older the way I scrapbook has changed. I scrap fewer multi-photo events and today's layout is the perfect example of this. And third how could I resit the squares. They are such a fantastic way to use my favorite scraps from my stash.


(Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Patterned Papers AC/Simple Stories/Fancy Pants/Studio Calico/Chickaniddy, Glitter Hearts American Crafts, My Favorite Things Alpha Dies, Spellbinders Scallop Border Die, Kraft die cut Jillibean Soup, Mini Clothes Pin Maya Road, Wood Arrow Studio Calico, Die Cut Tab Pink Paislee, Kraft Washi Tape Jillibean Soup, Love Wood Embellishment American Crafts, Chipboard Embellishment Fancy Pants, Hemp Twine, Gold Stars Studio Calico and font KingThings Typewriter)




 
I admit the My Favorite Things alphas are my current go to favorites. I have an upper case set, a lower case set and a numbers set. They are the a great size for making those longer more verbose titles I seem to favor these days.

Thanks for stopping by today happy crafting!

    1. The "hello, favorite, smile" piece isn't patterned paper but Jillibean Soup's newest kraft tape http://www.acherryontop.com/shop/search/jillibean%20soup%20/189699-Soup%20Staples%203%20Kraft%20Smile%20Tape%20Dots%20-%20Jillibean%20Soup
