2012 Layouts so far..

Today I want to show you the layouts I've made this year so far :-) Although I have been scrapbooking before it wasn't until let's say a year ago that I really got the hang of it.. And still there are only eight layouts to show for this year.. That's partially because (sadly) I don't have much time to scrap:-( But also because I've been doing ProjectLife (for the first time) this year. Will talk (and show) more about that some other time :-)

But here they are.. my eight pages made this year. I know they're far from perfect and I can't wait to practice more and more and improve myself :-)

From left to right, from top to bottom:

Me at 25 - my first layout made with my first StudioCalico kit from March 2012 (Story Hour). Especially love the floral design paper from Crate Papers Storyteller collection. Loved the fabric yoyo's by Amy Tan as well :-)

Love my hat - again a page made with Story hour, my first layout with a square picture. Most of my pictures are 4x6, standard photo print size (or at least over here in Europe)

Engaged - This layout is very dear to me. In the first place because of the subject, our engagement in 2012, but also because I like the way it turned out very much! It might be my favourite so far :-)

Get on the bus - Or should I say the triangle-train ;-) Had to try this trend for myself, I like how it turned out, but I think it's a bit plain :-)

Love - made with the Story Hour kit as well, love all the different pieces of paper. For the title I used a stencil by Jenni Bowlin. I traced the letters and then hand-cut them :-) (sadly I don't own a Silhouette (yet) :-))

Passionate - What I love most about this page is the picture. It has got my fiance on it, conducting a band. It just captures his passion for music so perfectly. Because the picture is quite dark I really wanted to use bright colors and Amy Tans Sketchbook Collection was just perfect for that.

Cafe des Epices & La Medina - For the pictures of our holiday in Marrakech (Morocco) last year I purchased an older collection kit from BasicGrey: the Marrakech collection kit. Couldn't think of anything more suitable and although isn't a style I would normally pick these fit perfectly with the colors in the pictures we took while we were there :-) The first one is my favourites. I made my own stamped embellishments for it:-)

That's it for now. Hope to show you new layouts real soon, because that means I have had time to scrap :-)

What are your scrappy plans for this weekend? :-)

Love, Dee

I really like the Engaged layout. Looking forwards to seeing some of your PL pages.

They're super cute Layouts!
This is part of why I decided not to do PL -- I love making regular layouts and know that would suffer for me.

What a cool idea to look back and see them all in a grid like this. I want to do this ;o)
