On to the pages...

Right now I am working on a few pages for design teams. I LOVE them, but I have to hold off a bit on posting them, so for now, I thought I'd share a few pages I've done but haven't posted (or I don't think I have), for a variety of reasons (Click on the photos to see them larger):

I do a serious amount of bubble pages every year. I liked mixing circle punched paper with some Skittles to add some play (and movement) to the page.

I don't think I've posted this--I made a photo grid using this tutorial by Cathy Zielske of some of my favorite spring shots. I trimmed a pom pom ribbon to serve as stem to a flowers. That blossom is old too--using old product makes me feel righteous.

Here I did a lift off a page at two peas. It was very girly, and I wanted the challenge of making it more linear and masculine even with some girly elements (like jewels and buttons). The bottom corner is a typical cluster for me: layers of mostly punched strips of paper, plus threaded buttons and gems. It works because there are similar clusters elsewhere around the page.

Last year I made a mini album of Christmas--I seriously did no layouts. I had bought a TON of Christmas product (bad Jenny!) and had to use it up, so a mini album was perfect. This year I may do a two pager with a collage of photos. That will take planning, though. I can do that though. I'm nothing if not anal--er, a planner.

This was a card I made with a sketch from Allison Davis, for my application to the design team for Sketch Support. SUPER fun to make, using a Build-a-Monster stamp kit from Stampin' up!, plus circle stamps from Studio Calico and BoBunny.

I had leftover camping photos from our camping trip to Maine a few years back and remnants of camping paper and stickers, so I put them together into a mini. A six by six mini is VERY easy to make with 4x6 photos, untrimmed.

My boys have gotten disposable cameras for our last two vacations, so I decorated covers for them in small brag book albums, using the remains of a Studio Calico travel-themed kit from last summer. I also put a label on the page protector to indicate what vacation the photos came from. The boys love these.

My favorite kind of page: a conversation page. The title comes directly from my son's words, which is a handy trick.

The idea for this page came from an assignment my son did at school, where he decided as a career he wanted to be an alien capturer. How much fun would that job be? I used some really cute Crate Paper Alien products I had lying around. Plus the goofiest photo I had.

More remnants tomorrow!

Wow, what a series of beautiful projects! Okay, maybe not "beautiful" to describe your masculine layouts, lol, but I love them, the alien one is my favorite, love love the subject matter and the papers you used.

Gorgeous Jennifer. I'm particularly smitten with the bubble layout - love all those circles! And also how you trimmed that pom pom ribbon to make the flower stem. Brilliant!!!
