Scrapbook Live May 2017

Scrapbook Live was so much fun today!

I played with the Main Kit and Life Pages Kit from Gossamer Blue and made a 12×12 layout and a pocket page.

We drew a winner for a Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit, and the lucky winner was Kristie.

The live attendees were full of fabulous ideas, so I crowd-sourced ideas for my layouts and they turned out great!

Here’s the full replay:

Here are the layouts:

12×12 Page:

You are my home layout FULL Alice Boll

The photo was printed 6×8. I liked how the the oranges and greens in the paper picked up different elements from the photo than I expected to use. (I thought I’d be using purple and blue on this page!)

The little cardboard circle had a saying on it that just didn’t work for this page. I covered it up with the banner and it was so cute!

A handy reminder from Carrie had me switching the orange and green mattes, so the green wasn’t right next to my son’s green shirt. That looked much better!

After crowd-sourcing for a title, thank you Vera, this page was well on it’s way!

Awe and Wonder full Alice BollIt’s been a busy month with LOTS of scrapbooking!

That’s always a good thing!

This layout was inspired by one of my all-time favourite movies, the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder. I’m participating in the layout at day challenge, LOAD517 Legends of Hollywood.

In Willy Wonka when the characters first enter the chocolate room, with candy everywhere and the amazing chocolate river, the expression on the actor’s faces is real. The director wouldn’t allow them to see the set until that moment so their genuine reactions could be captured. They gaze around the space in awe and wonder, it’s a truly magical moment.

The prompt: What moment in your life left you in awe and wonder? Where do you find awe and wonder in your daily life? It might be a big moment or a small one, let’s honour it today.

Here’s a look at the layout, and don’t miss the process video below!

Are you ready to take the Layout a Day challenge to scrapbook every day in May?

Don’t miss out.

Here’s why I love layout a day.

I finally stop collecting scrapbook supplies and finally start using them!

shopping for scrappy supplies

Finally put those scrappy supplies to good use!


If you’ve been a bit of a scrapbook collector and shopper, then you might enjoy actually putting your supplies to good use too.

stack of layouts

This happy stack of layouts is the result of a LOAD challenge!

When I tell people what I’m doing in May they always say, “I could never do that!”

That’s EXACTLY what I thought too, the first time I signed up on a whim.

Let’s be real. Not every scrapper will complete a layout every day for the month. And that’s okay. Imagine doing half of that. Or a third. No matter what the magic number is for you, you’ll finish the month with a sense of pride and satisfaction, just looking at all of those layouts you’ve completed!

Let me tell you about my first LOAD challenge.

I signed up, thinking that even if I complete a few pages I’d be happy, because at least I’d be getting something done. The first day was easy. I made my page, uploaded it to the gallery and gave myself a pat on the back. The next few days went much the same way. I found that because I was part of the challenge I held myself accountable. Other scrappers were commenting on my layouts with supportive words and encouragement. By the end of the first week I realized, “I was doing it! I was scrapbooking a layout a day!” The momentum kept me going, then I had a difficult day. With the craziness of life I just didn’t have time to scrapbook, but by now I was invested. I ran to my scrap space. I grabbed a photo, an awesome piece of scrapbook paper, added a title and dashed of journaling right on the background paper. 20 minutes later I’d produced the fastest layout I’d EVER made. (This was before you could create a layout on your phone in 5 minutes!) And I liked it. It turns out that scrapbooking every day had taught me a few things about scrapbooking. Not every page was a masterpiece, but a lot of them were really great. I also realized I was scrapbooking more stories, and that made all the difference. I loved the layouts and I loved LOAD. So naturally when the next LOAD challenge came I signed up. You know what happened the next time? I finished the entire next one too, right? Not quite! I finished 7 layouts. That’s it. I failed, right? No! I FINISHED 7 LAYOUTS! My average on a good month was 4, so to finish 7 was still fantastic, and they were pages I loved that told great stories. That’s the magic of LOAD!

Want to join me? Deadline to register is April 30, 2017.

Go to ScrapHappy.org/load517 to sign up!

And you may finally use up some of your scrappy supplies!
