you smiled so perfect. | Fancy Friday Blog Hop



It was a family photoshoot and like all the others before we did not have high expectations. We can always capture your personality but this time when Jane was finished, you stepped in and smiled so perfect that my heart came right out of my chest.  Today, you surprised me.

I love all these little moments.
Jack Caines.  I love you more than you’ll ever know.

As most of you know, I am a memory keeper.  A story teller.  So when the challenge for our Fancy Friday Blog hop was to use the Memories and More Card Packs by Stampin' Up!, it was a no brainer for me to dive straight in and create a scrapbook page.  Although my first intention was to use the divided pocket pages.

As always, my intention and page evolved with the picture and the story.  Like every year, we had a family photo shoot recently at Topsail Beach in CBS, Newfoundland.  Our expectations and goals are always the same for any photoshoot - try to get a family shot and one of the kids... if all else fails and Jack isn't co-operating then we will shoot only Jane, my 7 year old who loves the camera but doesn't want to be a model.


My scrapbooks are now in 8.5" x 11" so I consistently use this size for traditional pages like this. It makes it incredibly easy to type and print it on your printer.  I always use the Remington Noiseless font and try to get the exact place for journaling using Photoshop CC.


I don't nit pick.  I chose some cards out of the Bundle of Love card pack and began to cluster underneath the photo, which I printed at home using my Canon Selphy printer.

I didn't quite realize how much I loved this Pick A Pattern washi tape until I used it on this project.  I am a lover of thin washi tape and these patterns really worked perfectly.


The most exciting part about the Memories and More card packs is that these are now only $12.50 Canadian.  There are plenty of cards, transperancies and stickers for any person looking to scrapbook or tell their stories.  Be sure to chat with me any time if you have questions!


Thanks so much for popping by today - it always means so much to me. But don't stop here! Make sure to hop along to my fancy friend, Susan Wong to see her amazing project.

  2. Such an awesome layout! You make it look eaaasy. Love that with this size you can print straight onto the page without fuss. That's kind of a genius move, gf!

  3. Your page! *sigh* I wish I could memory keep like you! I love how you made the Bundle of Love cards work for an older child and not a baby!
