My name is Jamie Arthur
and I'm so excited to be a guest
designer this month. I love scrapbooking and really love working with
sketches. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years at this point. I have two
children, a Golden-doodle, and I'm married to the best man a girl could ask
for. And when I say the best I mean it! This man puts up with my scrapbooking
obsession as well as my coffee addiction and my love of books (which are
everywhere)! I enjoy spending time in my craft room creating layouts for
our family scrapbook albums. It is so fun to be able to open our family albums
and not just look at pictures but relive the memories through the layouts
themselves. I put my albums in the order in which things happened and I go year
by year. The only problem with this method is that I end up with a lot of
albums! I tend to scrap everything, however I find that it is so worth it when
I look at my children enjoying them.
of my layouts can be found on my blog and on Instagram.
On my blog I try to share what materials I used to create my layouts.
am using my Cricut Explore and Design Space, although occasionally I like
challenge myself to not use it. I also love using lots of pattern
The two page sketch for this month was so much fun to
It was perfect for the many photos I had of when our Golden-doodle was a
puppy. For this sketch I choose to use DCWV: Just My Type paper stack.
The colors in this stack are bold and fun and really went well with our
puppy's personality. My title comes from Nate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge
and I used lots of embellishments from my stash as well as creating
embellishments with die cuts from Design Space. I don't know about you,
but using up my stash is very satisfying!
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my layout and now it’s your
turn! I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!
