Another week of 2023 is done. We celebrated Chinese New Year and had a Science Fair walkthrough. Other than that it was a pretty normal week around here. Again, these pages came together so quickly. Love it!

I was able to finish this page for the graduation album I'm making for my daughter. I also got started on another one but haven't finished it yet. Why do they grow up so fast!

It's GSO Time - MOC Style!

Hello y’all!  CTM Robin here to bring you another GSO blog post, but this time we are doing it MOC style! If you didn’t realize, The Lilypad is hosting an event called Month of Challenges (MOC) and there are tons of people scrapping and adding layouts to the their galleries. This month, I thought it would be fun to show you SOME of the plethora of pages which used Liz’s templates as a jumpstart.  In order to complete all 31 challenges, one needs to scrap fast, and Liz’s templates are a huge help!  So here we go, GSO blog post featuring MOC layouts:

Week 3 is done and scrapped! We had a pretty normal week around here. The highlight was probably taking my 2nd oldest to audition at our local university to get into their college of music. I can't believe I have another one graduating.

I'm loving these Simple Life Templates for my weekly scrapping. I'm loving the white background. I think that helps me put these pages together in minutes.

First Pages of 2023!

Woohoo! My first 2 weeks of 2023 are done. I'm using my new Simple Life Templates and I love how these first few turned out and how easy and simple they were to put together. One of my goals was to keep these super simple so that I would have more time for some of my other scrapbooking projects. I also used Au Naturel by Micheline Lincoln to add a few elements/papers to my page. 

Our first week was pretty exciting with my son winning 1st in his division at the USA Archery State Competition! We also are getting back into our normal school routine. It always takes a bit after having a break.

2022 Cover Page & Video!


2022 Cover Page Templates by Scrapping with Liz
Happy Days by Designed by Soco
Paradise - Storyteller BYOC 2022 August by Just Jaimee

I realized I never made a cover page for my 2022 Album! My kids have been begging me to order it, and I needed to make a cover page before ordering. And now I can say that it's officially complete, and just for fun, I put together this video showing all the pages from my 2022 family album. 

I used my Remember Templates and various kits from The Lilypad to create this album. Now to focus on my 2023 album.


Step-by-Step Post

Happy 2023!!  Can y’all believe it’s the start to a new year?  Have y’all been playing along with Month of Challenges at The Lilypad?  I’m trying to complete as many layouts as I can, so I thought I’d show you one of my pages in this Step-by-Step blog post.  When I saw Day 9’s challenge TravelRelated, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  We just took a trip to Port Aransas, and I wanted to start my album with the car ride down.  First, because the requirement was one large photo, I searched for all the large photo templates in Liz’s store.  I found one in the GrandMotif set which was perfect, so I clipped my photo to the photo spot:

Next, I knew that I needed to make the photo black and white since all the different colors in the photo were giving me a headache.  I selected the photo and then clicked on gradient map>basic>black / white to get this look:

I realized I had to remove the bottom left cluster which hid my face, so I did that AND I added a cluster from Liz’s Edge Templates 3 set.  I can’t tell you how much I love her edge clusters since they take away all the hard work and make it simple for me to create a great edge piece!  This is what I ended up with after placing my cluster on my layout:

Finally, I got to play!  I started by clipping some papers from Just Jaimee's Road Trip - Storyteller July 2018 add on kit to the banner like this:

Then I added my final papers, elements, and journaling.  Because the challenge needed a journal card to meet the requirements, I tucked a small one as well into my top right cluster:

That’s it!  One layout done and one MOC challenge completed in less than 30 minutes thanks to Liz’s GrandMotif & Edge Templates 3 sets. I hope you enjoyed this post and can’t wait to see you next month!
