Scrapping The Little Things

Hello and happy Monday! Today is Scrapping The Little Things with My Creative Time. Today you'll find scrapbook layouts, Project Life and Smash pages to inspire you. Here is my 12x12 layout, displayed in one of my hanging racks. 

Closer view of my page. I love the look of smashy but rarely feel I can quite pull it off. DT Sista Nancy is an ace at this technique!! Then I found a page on pinterest that inspired me to try again. I printed the page and studied it for what seemed like hours before I finally decided to just start smashing - adding stuff and stamping stuff and before I knew it, I had a smashy looking page that I am totally pleased with!!! I hope you like it too.

Clusters of tags, tape, stamps, and just stuff. Not bad. Just a few of the items in this clump are MCT Build a Banner Kit, Vintage label banner, Circle font set, and Chocolate Greetings.

Another clump of stuff for the title, including MCT Chocolate Greetings, Teeny Tag, Layering Hearts, Label Font, Mini Frame arrow, and Life is Good stamp set...

...and a final cluster of goodies to balance out the page. You guys, I used so much stuff on this page and still have a pile of things I didn't use {which will, no doubt, make an appearance on an upcoming Thrifty Thursday} and I love it all! Did you notice -- not a single flower?! not a single ribbon, bow, or button?! Don't faint. :)

  1. Love what you created it's awesome how you took the smash book concept and made it work on a 12 x 12 I so love it since I'm a scrapper and mainly 12 x 12 thanks for sharing your ideas Love how you shared your creating experience with this you are definitely so creative and talented and now I have a really good idea how to do this. Thanks so much!!

  2. I absolutely LOVE the finished product! One of the reasons I stopped scrapping was because it took soooo long for me to get started. Even without all the usual "Shar" embellishments, it still feels like your creation. Congratulations on your 'Smash'-ing success!

  3. This is so cool! I don't think I could pull of this look at all. I love the hanging rack of a 12x12 LO!

  4. Awesome layout! No flowers and rbbion, I can only imagine how hard that was> The new no flower technique you used is awesome, I have to try this out :)

    Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!

  5. Shar ~ WOW! I have to say it ~ BEAUTIFUL couple! I LOVE this picture and of course her hat! The design is beyond FABULOUS and those colors together! What an eye for color! Just so many fun things you did here ~ as always! Hope all is well with you! Have a great day!

  6. Super job even without flowers and ribbons. So much to look at yet does not distract from the photo. There is a stamp to make a coffee stain?? I like it :D

  8. Your page is perfect! I struggle also with putting a page together. I dont know why but i think its because i just dont think there should be any space left! I guess i look at it like i do if i sit on a chair...that sucker is covered ha ha
