I created two double page spreads - one with a photo of my husband, and the other with a photo of me.

For the photo of my husband, he's wearing buffalo check, so I went with the Echo Park Little Lumberjack collection.

Whenever I run across a good small quote or phrase on Instagram or Pinterest, I save it to use as a future scrapbook page title. I got this hilarious sentiment from a tshirt online, and thought it'd be perfect for this photo of him about to dig into an entire pot of soup!

The black alphas from the Double Cut die from Concord & 9th.
The red alphas are the Heather lowercase die from Pinkfresh Studio.
I highly recommend a die which cuts alphas with outlines!  These are basically one of my top favorite supplies!!!

The patterned paper to back the photo was busy, so not much embellishment was required. I typed a tiny bit of journaling and added a few cardstock stickers referencing camping and his beard.

I love travelers notebooks because they come together very quickly!

I had to use a variation on the TLC waterfalls song for this page, obvi.
I was inspired to use Heidi Swapp's Old School collection by my camo sweatshirt.
I grabbed the sticker book and made it super easy to title & embellish.

I incorporated a few yellow stickers, so I added mustard yellow splatters to match.

Kraft was my solid base to compliment the patterned camo, but I also backed the craft with white cardstock to make it pop. Layering your 2d stickers is the best way to keep interest on the page without making it too bulky.

Distressing patterned paper edges also adds fun texture.
I love how these shimmerz splatters show up on Kraft paper!

I stamped the word definitely on a Heidi Swapp label with tiny stamps, and embellished with these clear enamel bubbles.

I hope you are inspired to create a smaller version of a scrapbook for a specific activity or event in your life.
