Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Oh, Snap! Blog Hop

HopGraphicHi! Thanks so much for stopping by today! You may have noticed from the wonderful image above that I’m in the Oh, Snap Blog Hop. If you came here from Nicole’s blog, you are in the right place to keep on hopping.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.

Today the all the Pretty Paper, Pretty Papers design team member are sharing our Oh, Snap projects!  We all love to take photos and share our memories with others. So, we’re sharing photo/camera/memories themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.

My project is pretty much sharing what I love to do – take photos of those memorable moments in my family’s lives and create a scrapbook page about it!  This was definitely one of those memorable moments with cameras busy in different hands, so I really thought this would be a great page for this hop. Here’s my layout:


I used a number of different files from Lisa’s shop. I adored the cool new Vintage Cameras Cutting Files and used the one that I thought would look awesome on my layout. All the wonderful layers and details of this camera really caught my attention! I love it! And apparently so do my design team mates, but just know that there are so many other cool cameras in the file:


Awesome, right?

Here is a closeup of my layered camera:


Another photo with fun cuts:


I also used the Secondary Supplies Cutting Files to cut a pattern on the red cardstock like the pattern on a composition notebook. I love the effect! You’ll also notice a number of the arrows from Arrows Cutting Files, because arrows are awesome, as well as the Notebook Pages Cutting Files because I can’t get enough of them with the School Days Pattern Pack providing the paper design! I hope you enjoyed my page. Let’s talk more about the hop!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, Pretty Amazed

Hi! So glad you’re here today! I’m tooting my son’s horn! He’s grown in so many ways over the past year and he continues to amaze me (thus, my post title – and the fact that I’m up on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog today – yippee!)

I wanted to scrap a couple of photos I’d gotten of him as he prepared for his 8th grade graduation photos. The boys are encouraged to dress up (something he wasn’t looking forward to) and I had gotten him a dress shirt and 4 different ties I thought would look nice with it for him to choose from (I like to give choices when I can – I feel that if they have a say then it’s easier for them to do whatever is being asked.) He chose one of the ties after his dad walked him through some discussion about tie styles over the years and they worked through tying the knot, although in the end my hubby just left the knot in place and Alex and I tightened it in the morning.

So my layout shows the pictures of him after he’s all dressed up as well as after he puts on his glasses and adds his own fashion touch of silliness!


I used this PageMaps sketch, which is the current Becky Fleck challenge at A Cherry on Top:


I love Lisa’s Notebook Pages Cutting Files, which you may have noticed because I’ve used them before. I filled the spiral bound shape with the notebook page pattern from the School Days Pattern Pack and did print and cut with it. It’s such a wonderful, realistic looking page – perfect for journaling! Here’s a closer peak at that (and the journaling.)


The Hats Off Cutting Files have some really fun grad hats that I thought would be fun to scatter on the page in place of the flowers. I simplified each one to two layers since dimension was good but I didn’t want a lot of detail to them. Here are the others:

AEOY_TitleDetAlso, because Alex putting on his glasses was a huge reason for the first photo, I thought the glasses from the Old Chap Cutting Files would be fun to have on my page and that helped inspire my title!

So that’s about it for today! Have you entered your project in our Anything Goes Challenge? It’s a great opportunity to create anything you want and enter it to win a gift certificate from the store! $20 can buy a lot of fun files!!!

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you have a chance to get some happy crafting done! I’d love to hear about any projects you’re working on in the comments or just anything you’d like to share! Hearing from you always makes me smile!
