K–8 (and then some) Auction Album using Power Palettes

I donated an album for our school’s auction that will be on May 5th.  I wanted it to be simple enough that a non scrapper could look at it and think “Hey, I can do that!”  but nice enough that scrapbookers would want it, too!

I used mostly the Cheerful Power Palette and the retired Primary Power Palette.  These all worked so well together!  Titles and the custom elements were cut on my Silhouette.  I matted each sticker, title & other elements in black  cardstock throughout the album so that it would give the album a unified look. 

The album is designed to showcase pictures from a child’s years at St. Michael’s school (K – 8) but they can be rearranged if needed and adapted for other years & schools. 

Title Page – designed in Make the Cut and cut with my Silhouettedscn2330

For each grade I did a page with the year’s title and another layout left mostly empty so a class photo, larger school picture, report card or other item could be displayed.  I also included a set of Storybox Photo Mats & Journal Boxes in the auction so that they could add more photos if they want.  Photo Mats are pieces of pre-cut paper that are just a tad bigger than a 4x6 photo so they make matting photos a breeze! I also donated  a new Tape Runner, Dual Tip Black Pen, ABC Stickers and an hour of my time to help the winner of the auction get started.

Most of the stickers and elements I adhered with Foam Squares to make them pop off the page a bit.

Besides pages for each grade I did some for holidays – hoping that pictures of class parties and other fun holiday happenings can have a home.  I also did pages for Holy Communion, Confirmation & one that can be used for anything school related or sports.

You can view the whole album below (except for one of the Christmas pages I forgot to take a photo of). 

I hope it raises a bunch of money for the school!  If you’re local, stop by the auction – they are going to have lots of wonderful things to bid on!

Pink, Flowers and More Pink!

Being the Mom of 2 boys I don’t have many opportunities to use “pretty” stuff while scrapbooking.  I have been wanting to try the new Paper Flowers & Ribbons by CM for a while now & just couldn’t wait any longer!  I got out some of my pictures for my own scrapbook (you know - the album that has very few pages) and this is what I created:

The pages are made with papers and stickers from the Delight Power PalettePaper Flowers & Ribbon are the “Delightful” ones (more coming in September).  The Paper Ribbon is double sided – printed on one side and solid color on the other.  The layout on the left hand side was inspired by one found in CM’s Idea Book Vol. 1 – Inspire Me. You can find it on the bottom of page 21.

The little bear was created using the Custom Cutting System – mostly the Oval Patterns.  “CHAT” uses the Simple Monogram stickers & the other stickers used in the title are Swirly ABC/123 stickers.

Here is a close up of the Paper Flowers and Ribbon– I used the Foam Squares underneath the small flower to give it a bit of dimension.

Thanks for looking!
