Scrapping with Love Stories Simply Scrappin' Kit

Today was the Tailor Made Scrapbooking Class where each person made 10 pages. Believe it or not, the first person finished in an hour and the pages were super! I really like this Simply Scrappin' Kit because the colors are right for so many different events and can be used for masculine pictures! While everyone was creating their pages, I felt kinda envious as they were creating and I was just sitting here .. supervising. Frankly, I wanted to play too! So, they let me (they are so nice to me!)

I pulled out the Love Stories Simply Scrappin' Kit found on pg. 164 of the Idea Book and Catalog. This kit reminds me of weddings and I called it kind of "foo foo". Really, foo foo isn't me, so to use this kit was really a challenge. I started out cutting some of my cardstock the same measurements as the pages used in the Tailor Made Scrapbooking Class to see how they would come out. Some of the color combinations didn't work with the same layout, so I pulled out some Soft Subtles cardstock. Unfortunately, I didn't have the colors I needed (but I'll remedy that tonight with my order), but I was able to get six pages done. Now, when I mean done, they are created using elements in the Simply Scrappin' Kit. When I add pictures, then I add some other details depending on the pictures. After everyone left, I pulled out my box of photographs and completed the following two pages. Now, keep in mind I didn't have any wedding photographs, but once I started going through photos, I easily found photos for the pages. See, I was wrong. Ouch - I can't believe I said that! You don't have to have wedding photographs with this Simply Scrappin Kit!!! Duh - sometimes its a challenge for me to step outside the box!! Here are two of the pages!

When I found this picture of my mother-in-law with those pink pants on, I knew this picture would be perfect on this page. Togetherness, family and love!

Isn't he just so adorable! It's hard to believe he's going to be 22 years old the end of June! As I look back on many of the pictures of Kirk when he was young, he was always smiling. He still makes my heart go pitter-patter!

Below is a picture of the items in the Love Stories Simply Scrappin' Kit.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and speculate that this Simply Scrappin' Kit will not be in the upcoming 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog as it has "Pink Pirouette" cardstock, which is being retired the end of June! So, if this kit appeals to you, you have until the end of the month to purchase it! Don't forget - the Last Chance List (formerly the Retired List) will be published tomorrow, so you'll know for sure.

I hope you had a super weekend .... and get ready for June 1!
