Landon’s Scrapbook Pages

Did I really say I was going to post scrapbook pages throughout the month of May for National Scrapbooking Month?  Well, today is the 27th and I've yet to post any!  Better late than never, they say!

Good scrapbook pages start with good photos, and I was really fortunate to get these wonderful pictures of my grandson Landon's first birthday.  (That's my handsome husband with Landon.)  His birthday was a Sesame Street theme, so I took the opportunity to do a little punch art and create all the Sesame Street characters.  I had a ball creating these pages which are designed to fit side by side in my album.

The first page highlights using the Big Shot die-cut machine along with Alphabet Simple Letters dies.  The Big Shot and alphabet dies are a must for scrapbookers!  You'll never run out of the letters you need to create fun titles for your all pages.  All of the bases of the Sesame Street characters began with the larger image on the Scallop Circle #2 die.  To make smaller characters, use the smallest image on that die or the Scallop Circle Punch.  To add some interest to the background, I punched several pieces of Summer Sun card stock with the Scallop Circle Punch and adhered them randomly, creating a "sunny" effect.  Adhering them on top of the textured card stock of the same color really gives this page a pop.  The color scheme is Summer Sun, Garden Green, Ballet Blue and Real Red.  Summer Sun and Ballet Blue will be retiring soon and are only available while supplies last. 

Don't forget to journal on your scrapbook pages!  You may think you'll never forget a special event, but you will!  And future generations to come will be so thankful that you took the time to tell them your story!
