There are so many reasons why so people scrapbook. Whether it’s about preserving the past, showcasing photos, telling stories, or simply to have fun with pretty paper, people scrapbook for a variety of reasons.

Today, I have a process video to share about one of the biggest reasons why I scrapbook. It’s because of the enjoyment I get out of seeing my husband and daughter look at the pages. Both of them don’t just glance at a layout when I finish. They hold it, look at all the little details, feel the embellishments, and read the journaling.

We don’t leave out the albums now that we have a dog. I have a feeling the only way Tucker would experience my scrapbooking is to attempt to eat it. He’s done it before. However, there are days and times I’ll pull out an album to add more pages or simply relive the memories. My daughter enjoys doing that too. She loves Christmas like my husband does. Both of them really like to look at my Journal Your Christmas albums from the current year and years past. I snapped a photo of my daughter looking at my current album and just knew it was the perfect photo for this.

I pulled my items from my January 2019 How to Kill a Kit…With Style! kit. The background and one of the photo layers are from Shimelle’s Head in the Clouds collection. Other patterned papers are from Paige Evan’s Whimsical collection.

I managed to use some of my “Use It or Loose It!” items from my kit. I’ve now only got one dimensional sticker left on my Dear Lizzy set. I used one of the Project Life cards and even remembered (after forgetting as you’ll see in the video) the Heidi Swapp trimmings.

I had the perfect Nuvo Drops to use in Bubblegum Blush and Sweet Lilac. I was disappointed with the Sweet Lilac when I first purchased it as it was much lighter in person than on the screen. However, it’s a perfect match so I’m quite happy with it now.

Washi tape, stickers from Paige Evans Sticker Book, flair, and sequins from Spieglemom Scraps round out the layout.

Check out the video below to see the entire page come together. It’s a long one – about 34 minutes – so grab a cup of tea and relax. Or, if you’re like me, sit in your scrappy area and scrap along with me!

Have a lovely day!
