Hello To Just Being Happy by Jennifer Grace

I’m Back! Layouts I’ve Made This Summer

Hello hello!

I’m back at last – we’ve had a new phone line and modem installed so I can use the internet again! Hooray, how I’ve missed it!

I’m going to be blogging regularly again now, but first here’s a few layouts to share which I’ve made over the last couple of months. I haven’t been doing too many scrapbook projects because with out the internet I was low on inspiration, plus it was the summer holidays so I was busy keeping the kids entertained! But I have managed a few pages…

Hello To Just Being Happy:

This page and the next one (Techno Kids) were both made during a lovely evening spent at my friend Sarah’s house. This layout has a lot of Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine on it because I’d just picked it up from her and I couldn’t wait to use it!

I couldn’t decide where to put the title, so Sarah suggested just using the ‘Hello’ word on the background paper, or maybe adding small letter stickers to extend it for a title, and I love how it turned out:

This ‘Life’s A Beach’ card was perfect for me, I love the laid back feeling I get at the beach:

I was really glad to get this photo of my kids absorbed in their Leap-Pad Explorer, because it was the perfect way to document how much childhood has changed from when I was small. My kids are very technology savvy, so I have to be careful that they actually do normal playing, as well as playing computer games and watching tv!

I used lots of different bits from my stash for the above page, but there are a few bits each from the Pink Paislee Hey Kids and the Crate Paper Boys Rule collections.

Splash Zone:

The photos on my ‘Splash Zone’ page are from last year, but we have just visited the same place (Weymouth Sea Life Centre) again this summer and had lots of fun again. My brother and his wife and kids were visiting at the time, and me and my brother may have had a small waterfight of our own (no kids nearby) – it was flipping freezing!

I made this page whilst playing with some Pilot Frixion Pens, which Pilot sent me to try out and record a video showing how you can erase the pens and re-write with them:

And here I used a pink #Frixion pen to change the date #FrixionVid

They were fun to use, but I probably wouldn’t use them on scrapbook layouts too much – they suggest they shouldn’t be used for legal documents so I’m guessing the writing you do with them won’t last forever. They’ll be good to use for notes and homework though, and I might use them to try out my journaling on the page, then erase it and write it again with my usual journaling pen!

Well, that’s the layouts I’ve been making (there will be a new Scrap 365 Sketch page coming at the end of next week too).

I will be back in the next few days to show you another project I made this summer: a box frame filled with a fantastical scene – with a man riding a unicycle and wearing a top hat. It is mostly brilliant, and only slightly crazy I assure you!

Have a great weekend!
