My first Scrap Review is up!

My first review at The Scrap Review is up today!

The collection I got to work with is the Bazzill Basics Beach House collection. I made three projects, two layouts and a card.

The first page was for its intended theme: the beach! I made a page with our summer bucket list, photo pun intended. I got the idea from this photo and a page I saw recently where a person made a summer bucket list. Might have been Jill Sprott? Here it is:

Here's some details:


You can see that the collection worked well for fussy cutting and didn't have colors that would overwhelm the photos. I cut the tags out of patterned paper, I think from the 6x6 pad.

I also made a non-themed page about our one and only snow day we've gotten in my teaching career.
(OK, there was another snow day, but I was at a workshop, so I feel that didn't count!)




You would never know looking at this page that the papers come from a beach collection! Awesome flexibility.

(Trivia note: the sledding hill is right above the beach in the first page. If you look in the distance in the big snow photo, you can see the umbrella skeletons.  I love that these two pages are in the same place but two different seasons.)

And here's a card:

I'm not really a cardmaker, but I love this one. And can I also say how nice the Stampin' Up! baker's twine looks with this collection? I used it on every page.

If you like this collection, please visit The Scrap Review to leave a comment by midnight Friday EST for a chance to win the collection! Sorry, US residents only for this giveaway.

Back soon with a post on scrapping events or moments without photos.

Your use of the tags, and large photos is awesome, really.

I was excited to see that this morning! I love all your projects, but then again, I always do. I especially love the tag borders.

Your layouts are always so inspiring and full of good stories, Jennifer. Awesome as usual!

Wow, Jennifer! It cracks me up, but I saw the LO on Pinterest and knew it was yours! I love when you use those huge photos.
