June 18, 2011

What are you taking a picture of today? The rain, a puddle, rain boots, a pretty umbrella?

Here are 10 more ideas from Creating Keepsakes magazine.

1. People playing catch (Maybe tomorrow for Father’s Day, if it’s sunny?)

2.  A pitcher of lemonade or iced tea (Again, depending on the SUN!)

3. Someone getting a haircut (We’ve all had haircuts recently, so I’ll have to take pics next time)

4. Your workplace (Already done that)

5. A Big city skyline (How about Vancouver?)

6. Your grocery store (Took a photo of this last week, it’s also where my son works)

7. Lunch boxes of lunch bags (Last chance til fall)

8. A school crossing guard on duty (Last chance til fall)

9. A soccer team practicing (Plenty of chances for this one)

10. Your purse (Ugh, mine is so messy and overflowing!)

Here is Marnie’s 100 Days of Summer so far. So, I did May on two pages and before that a title page for 100 Days of summer (not depicted). I’m not doing title pages for each month, so I started June on the next layout! I’m using the tiny number stickers on the 100 Days of Summer sticker sheet in the corners of my photos.  I’ve since added some buttons and gems and stickers to finish it off.

I’ve been using the We R Memory Keepers multi-pocket page protectors and the 100 Days of Summer paper from Simple Stories.

Using Simple Stories Paper collections: Life Documented, Destinations, Elementary and 100 Days of Summer with We R Memory Keepers pocket pages makes scrapbooking easy!

The Simple Stories system is a simplified scrapbook process that lets you get back to the basics of scrapbooking helping you to focus on your memories and photos. You’ll discover just how easy – and  satisfying – it is to create beautiful pages in a matter of minutes.

First Step

Simple Stories paper collections have sheets of element pieces that are designed to fit into the We R Memory Keepers pockets perfectly. Trim your elements.

Second Step

Insert your photos and elements into the pockets! Simple Stories elements come in a variety of basic sizes, including 4×6 journaling cards, 6×8 photo mats, 4×4 quote blocks, 6×12 page elements, 4×12 titles, transparencies, and 2×12 border strips!

Third Step

Journal and title your photos or the overall page, then enjoy!

Scrapbooking Ideas:

This is one approach to scrapbooking your 100 Days of Summer Challenge! Some scrappers are making a title page for each month, some are trying to do a week on two 12 X 12 pages, some use their favorite picture of the month  for their title page, some are taking a picture from the same place each month to show the changes over time, some people journal right on the photo others journal in one of the pockets.
