Summer Vibes Elements by Paislee Press
Week 28 was another fun summer week. 2 of the girls were off to camp for a few days, we spent a day at the beach, a morning at the library, lots of time playing games, and playing outside.

Poor Isaac was heart broken when he said goodbye to the girls.

BTW - I'm lovin' text and word art over photos these days.

I did manage to scrap a few more China pages this past weekend. I can't show a couple of them to you since they are with some new templates that won't release until next week.

Here's one that I can show you. I used the MIS prize template from July's make it snappy. I rarely scrap a page with one photo, but I really only had one photo from this activity, and I knew my son would love a fish themed page.

Another Quick Album by Amanda

Amanda has created another quick album. She took her son to a DanTDM concert and made a book just for this event. She said her son jumped up and down when he received the album. She's only sharing a few pages because Dan asked her to keep most of the stuff a secret for other kids attending the show.

Amanda really streamlined the process for this album, much like her last album.

Here's what she said about creating this album.

When I am making a book I like to really pare down the number of supplies I am using. So just one kit or just a few papers and elements is plenty for me. It's all about the pictures and stories.

This was her planning list for her pages:

Front Cover

Title Page
Getting Ready 1
Getting Ready 2
Gamestop/Cinco's/Pet Store 1
Gamestop/Cinco's/Pet Store 2
We are Here! 1
We are Here! 2
"We Want Dan" (QR code to video)
The Show 1 We Want Dan
The Show 2 Don't take my picture
The Show 3 
The Show 4 
The Show 5 
The Show 6 
The Show 7 
The Show 8 
The Show 9 
The Show 10 Final Battle
The Show 11 Song
Heading Home
Back Cover

I think having a page plan in order is a great idea! It keeps you motivated, and you don't have to think about what picture or pages you will work on next.

Here's her supply list:

Template: Scrapping with Liz ~ Snappy Album Templates
Kit: Kristin Aagard ~ Over the Moon
Fonts: BadaBoom BB & Volter (Goldfish)

Front Cover - I Love the full page cover.

She ordered a Shutterfly book and was happy with the results.

I love that she capture the getting ready phase.

Another album by Amanda. She's really inspiring me.
