Scrapbooking Cures Saturday Blues

I hear a loud sigh coming from Kori.

What’s wrong, Kori?

It’s just that, dad is busy, you are sick, Kimi is sick and Katlynn and Kelsey have soccer practice. There is nothing for me to do but sit on the couch!

I offered several suggestions, none of which seemed to interest her.  Until…

How about we do a project together?  We could scrap our day together last fall.

I had the photos printed, just hadn’t gotten around to scrapbooking them yet. And this was the perfect opportunity!


I love the pocket pages. It makes it so much easier. Each pocket is it’s own mini layout. Plus it is enough to keep Kori’s attention without being too much for her to lose interest in.

Kori did all the inking. (around 4×6 patterned paper edges, journaling strips, embellishments) She also did some of the journaling.

Look mom!

On our walk, I found a moth that couldn’t fly. So I picked it up and helped it.

I started with a 12×12 sheet of Tropical Circles from the Summer Soiree collection cut into 4×6. I intended for the cross image to be used in one of the pockets. But I cut it vertically, not realizing I had two vertical photos. Kori really wanted to use that cross and insisted on punching it out. She chose the tag punch and then added a “moth” punch and heart as well.

I have a ton of white cardstock strips that I can’t seem to throw away. Using them for journaling strips is a great way to use them up.


I love this photo with the beautiful fall leaves in the background. On our walk to Casey’s for a treat.

It was (Kimi’s) 8th grade orientation at Metro East Lutheran leaving just Kori  and I at home. We had a fun-filled day of playing games, going for a walk and watched a movie together.
