Scrapbooking| Remote Learning During A Pandemic

 Happy Sunday, fellow crafters!

Today, I am sharing a 9x12 layout featuring my son. Normally, I prefer to do a pocket-style layout, but now and then I like to intersperse my memory-keeping album with the occasional traditional scrapbook page. Living through a pandemic has had its challenges; however, I have seen my two sons step up and dedicate themselves to their studies and I am proud of their efforts. 

Since page layouts are not my normal go-to, I look for inspiration from one of my favorite scrapbookers, Victoria Marie. Victoria offers wonderful content on both her blog and Youtube channel that always inspires me to try new things in my memory-keeping process. In this case, I loved the idea of creating a pocket to store my journaling. And while Victoria showcased an awesome die/stamp combination from Elle Studio, I was able to create a similar pocket with the dies and stamps I had on hand in my craft space. I cut a piece of patterned cardstock 3.5x8.25, scored at 4 1/8, and used a small circle die to cut a notch in the panel before adhering the sides together with double-sided tape. A tab from Photoplay's Living Quarantine was adhered to the top of my typed journaling card. I love it when I can use supplies in new ways to get the most from my crafty stash. I am a huge fan of layering, so I used the ephemera bits and pieces to help tell the story in the pictures. And I loved the clusters of embellishments, which adds visual interest with multiple differing heights. Using black and white photos helps the photos to not clash with the bold color palette of the pattern paper and ephemera. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a chance to step into your crafty space and create some paper magic of your own. 

Happy Scrapping,
