Traveler's Notebook flip through - beach vacay

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just a quick post today to bring you a YouTube video I made flipping through a quick traveler's notebook I completed about our beach trip this past weekend.

I like to get all the memories into a TN while they're still fresh, as it will likely take me some time before I can actually scrap all the good vacation photos I took on my normal camera. I just packed a couple little bags of supplies and took my TN with me. I worked on it some in the condo, but mostly in the car on the way home! I'm really happy I have already finished it. Hope you enjoy the video!

Thanks for looking!

Looking & Smiling - our photo motto

Hello everyone, today I'm bringing you some inspiration for the next-to-last Sizzlin' Summer sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. I think this may have been my favorite sketch!

Here is the original sketch:

These little photos are outtakes from many I had to take to get a good one - which turned out to be a really good one. So I used the best on a traditional layout for a complete, double page spread - (whhha?!).

My oldest son learned very young that you don't argue with mommy when she points a camera at you. The quicker you smile, the quicker you can get on with your life! He also thinks he has the responsibility of making the younger son smile, so it's quite difficult to get them both looking and smiling at the same time! This was a rare photo at the time, since Lachlan was so young and had just started really smiling - but boy do those smiles melt a heart...

I cut a giant ampersand to mirror the ampersand paper I used on the opposite page. I also cut the circles from the corresponding paper used on the opposite page.

and, of course - sequins.

I really ended up loving this fun color palette!

Crate Paper - Dear Lizzy Documenter paper
Cardstock - The Paper Studio
Washi tape - Amy tangerine
Alphas - Studio Calico

I hope you played along with Scrapbook Challenges' Sizzlin' Summer this month. It really helped me get lots of great pages completed.

Happy Mail - My first FLIP BOOK!

Happy hump day, everyone!

Today, I'm bringing you the first happy mail I have made for my friend Cheryl!

I had a lot of fun making this happy mail, and I also learned a few things!

I will attempt sewing on my next book to keep the pockets together better.

I know some of the supplies included seem random, but they fit with projects Cheryl is currently working on, so hopefully she felt that when she received it! :)

Current obsession: Shaker pockets - I think we all know this about now. I got a big pack of this transparency paper. I'm taking suggestions of how to use it! :)

I'm also really feeling this cork paper right now!

I have also posted a very bad quality video of a flip through this book on my YouTube channel at Natalie Dill. I am also open to suggestions on how to get the quality up, as I am frustrated because I was using my DSLR on this one! I think it's an SD card issue, and I intend to acquire an HD video card and see if that helps.

Thanks for looking!

Prom - a SBC Sizzlin Summer sketch

Happy Hump Day, all!

Today we have another sketch from Sizzlin' Summer over at Scrapbook Challenges.

Here is the original sketch:

I created this page of old high school photos for a special project for a special friend recently. Man, I loved that dress!

I loved the chance to go super girly on a page, as I don't get to do that too often living with lots of boys, as I do. (Fun fact, I married my Senior Prom date! <3) I really love this little fringe banner I made on my Cricut.

Patterned Paper - Crate Paper, Dear Lizzy Documenter
Alphas - Heidi Grace
Pink clear flowers - Heidi Swapp

Thanks for looking - lots more fun sketches coming up during the rest of the month. Please join us!
