Guest Designing at Sweet Peach Crop Shop!

This month, I had the pleasure of guest designing for the Sweet Peach Crop Shop! Corrie makes the funnest kits, and I had a blast working with the November edition.

My first layout is one I've been meaning to scrap for about 5 months now....don't you love how that goes? This layout documents the day I found out I was expecting Bunny, and how I told S that night. I kept the design simple to focus on the happy photos and words, and I love the result!

And a close-up--love those wooden letters. They make such a great statement!

This next layout is a bit more serious, abut all of the things I'm worried about lately. Which, for a natural worrier such as myself, is a long list. Much of the problem stems from the fact that I want every little aspect of my life worked out right this second. I don't do well with uncertainty, and gray areas. Unfortunately, as the talented Alexa Stevenson writes in Half Baked, gray areas account for about 99% of human experience. Alas.


I was really debating where to put the journaling here, but ended up liking the white space in the middle and placing the journaling around the edges.


My next layout goes back to the first topic, with more details and photos of the day I told S I was preggers. Even though these two layouts are a bit redundant, I'd rather create two layouts about something important to me than feel pressured to get every detail in one project.

Snuck a little sewing in here:

And finally, I fell in love with a Martha elephant punch in Michael's a few weeks ago, so I gave it the spotlight on this card. A great way to use up scraps!

Love my elephants....

And that's all for my Sweet Peach projects, folks!

Question for you: how often does the same topic creep into YOUR layouts?

  1. These are great vi like so many of your design ideas and of course the topic on a couple of them is fabulous. The card could not be any cuter.

  4. Love those elephants. I don't know how often it happens, but I did recently just make a page that expresses rge exact same sentiment as another layout, but with different photos. I liked them all so much, and they just didn't all go together in 1 layout.

  9. Hi!!! fantastic layouts you did. love the curves on the first one and how you did the journaling on the second and the sewing on the third.. you've been busy. I barely scrap lately except for my DT assignments... and yes, that elephant punch is fabulous. i may need to seek that out. My niece is expecting any time now and I could see that on many layouts.
    Hope you are doing well and not worrying too much.
    Hugs. =)

  20. I mean beyond the stage of being able to use the elephant enough to justify the purchase ;)

  21. That elephant is adorable! Must find one immediately!!! And I love your idea of making two pages for one important event-in scrapbooking you get to make your own rules. :)

  24. I love both these LOs. The first one is so simple and beautiful. And what an awesome topic to scrap! I realize that every LO about my younger daughter is about how spunky she is -- I've really got to figure out something else to say about her!
