Saturday Scrapping Easter Pages!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a good weekend. I mentioned earlier today on Facebook that my craft room had hit critical mass. I had several orders for upcoming workshops and framing jobs arrive this week and lots of things to finish up and package for the Made in Maine Expo I am getting ready for May 2nd and it was all just there congesting my basement! So I tackled it this morning! I organized and sorted things, checked framing orders and unboxed goodies. I put away the Jenga pile of supplies that towered precariously at the end of my table that built up over the past 2 weeks and rewarded myself (and my family) by ordering pizza for dinner! I’d love to say my table was still cleaned off but I can’t be sure, my daughters saw my new chalk marker test paper and they had to use them so I might be out of black cardstock and chalk markers now and there might be a new pile of art on my table but I’m not going to worry about that. Besides, a well used art room can’t be clean all the time 🙂 I did take some breaks to enjoy this beautiful warm sunny spring day. We played catch with the kids and we all enjoyed the weather. I took some time earlier this week to scrapbook some photos from Easter, it is my favorite holiday to scrap because of the beautiful spring colors which are welcome after a long winter.


I love the pastel colors! This year instead of snapping pics of my kids hunting for eggs (in the snow…) I got a few shots of our kids and my nephew at my parent’s house. I usually forget to take pictures but I used all the photos I took on this two page layout. I have a few time saving techniques I like to use to create quick layouts. Today I will share them in this video:

  1. Lindsay,

    Your girls are growing up so fast! They both look really beautiful in these pictures as well. I am glad you were able to enjoy the nice weather and spend time with the family as well as get your craft room under control. Thanks for sharing with us all.



  2. Great layouts! I LOVE Mixbook! I made a Mixbook for my son the year he won the track championship at Thunder Road International Speedbowl. He was so happy with it and I would use them again if I had any pictures to use! LOL We always forget to take pictures so we have none for a few years!


  3. What great pages! Maizy looks just like you! Both girls are so pretty! I’m glad they posed for pictures! Pretty soon they’ll be at the age where they won’t want to! Thanks for sharing!


  4. I kind of gave up on doing scrapbooking because of that huge block of paper staring at me. Watching you put together the page really made sense. Now I might even give it another try. Thanks for the great tips.


    • it can be so hard to cut into a pretty piece of 12″x12″ paper but I realized years ago all the paper I was “saving” for the perfect layout never got used and there was always newer prettier paper coming out so I use it now! Now it sounds as sill as waiting for the perfect paper to scrap your photos, getting photos in books is the most important thing no matter how you do it!


  5. lovely kids


  6. Look at your beautiful family. Always enjoy your posts, Lindsay. Give them a hug and enjoy today. ~Laura


  7. Regarding die cuts used: what is the brand of the small flower branch die cut in pink that you used in your page layout? Your response will be appreciated! Love your tutorials!!!
