March 2018 Scrapbook Layouts

I'm continuing to use INSPIRATION from Shimelle's The 20 Project class and the old BPC 28 Days of Sketches class as I scrapbook this year's photos and stories. This first layout from March showcases one large photo and shares how the Bradford pear trees bloomed mid-month, teasing of spring, but we had several more bursts of rain and cool weather afterwards.

We're always striving to eat healthier, and I can't resist snapping a photo when the food is pretty, too! This layout using four small photos worked perfect to highlight some of our meals in March.

I'm also often inspired to snap photos when we are browsing flea markets, garage sales, and antique stores, so I printed a variety of 2x3 photos from a couple of places we visited earlier this year for a layout where I also included some old lace and buttons.

For these last two layouts, I used a simple two-page kit from Lickety Split called "You Are My Sunshine" (a gift from my friend Amy). Both pages hold photos from the same weekend; however, since they tell slightly different stories, I wanted the pages to go together but not appear as a two page layout. For the first page, I used mostly items from the kit, adding a journaling card and flowers from my stash. I also included a screen shot of a text, which I printed in black & white since the blue text bubbles didn't go with the colors of my layout.

The second page uses the same background paper from the kit, but most of the other papers and embellishments are from my stash. I like the way these two pages flow together while stilling being unique. (Thanks for the FUN kit Amy!!)

I still have a couple of stories to scrap from March as I progress on our 2018 chronological album. How is your 2018 scrapping coming along?


  1. I really like the yellow & green stripe paper, very cheerful & crisp. Nice to catch up with scrapping & having fun at the same time. I'm only a little behind on my chronological scrapping, way behind on some of my theme albums.

  2. That first layout with the grass background is just about perfect! Great to see that you've been busy in your craft space.

  3. Why is it that healthy eating involves so much green??? I love the idea of the flea market layout and may need to scraplift that one. All of my scrapbooking right now is creative team related. Makes it harder to really tell stories. :)

  4. I love the first layout; those blues and greens just shout "Spring!" to me!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
