Year-o-graphy

This week I decided to play with a little bit of Simple Stories' Year-o-graphy collection. It's an awesome kraft paper based collection that features the months of the year, the seasons, and lots of "family" type sayings. It also comes with cuuute Bingo cards, journaling cards, borders, 4x6 transparencies and more! Here are a couple of my projects.

"This is Life"

Yes, I've scrapped this picture before but I really like it. For one, it's the ONLY picture of all 5 of us since McClain was born. But I also love the colors in it, and they worked PERFECTLY with this collection. I was also inspired by a February doily-themed blog post by Stephanie Howell, so I decided to pull out my long lost doilies and play.

"Love U" card

This is a mini card featuring one of the monthly Bingo cards from the collection. I layered it with another jounaling card that I'd cut out the heart and the saying. I added a sticker, a wooden button (which I can't get enough of lately) and some faux stitching. Now if only I'd made it in time for Valentines Day. LOL! Oh well, at least I'll be prepared for next year!

Happy Saturday, friends!
