Family Memories

I know, you haven't had much of a break from scrapbook pages. But there might be someone who actually enjoys seeing them (hi Mom!). Anyway, I thought this one turned out kind of cute so just had to share. You may have noticed that I squeeze as many pictures as I can on most layouts. This was no exception. I had a ton of pictures that weren't great but help tell the story so those were all punched out with my 1 3/4" circle punch and placed in the row at the left. This is a great way to get SIX extra pictures on a layout.
The paper and adhesive strips and stickers on this page are all from the Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin' Kit with the exception of the letters. They actually got mixed up with this kit and after I used them realized they came with the At Home SS Kit. That's OK, I don't mind mixing and matching!
I had fun keeping this page simple. None of my pictures are matted, but I added little accents with the Curly Label punch and some buttons to spruce it up. Since these are pictures of a very recurrent theme in my albums (don't we all have that one recurring theme?!) I avoided boring journaling by just stamping random words that describe the fun we had this day.
Hope you've enjoyed these ideas for your own scrapbook pages.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Kristin this is AWESOME, LOVE those circles on the side, what a great way to add more pics!!!! Super layout girl!

  2. And me... I love seeing the scrapbook pages because I usually know at least one or two people in them and it's so nice to see them.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Kristin. Great scrapbook page layouts. I also wanted to leave a comment about an older post. I was able to pick up the Happy Moments set recently from a friend. I remembered that you had made a really cute card with the bird cage stamp. So, I did manage to find it: Jan 18 post. I loved it then and love it now! So I am going to case it. I may add some dec paper though. Thanks! Hope you are having a great day.
