SBVC105 - Paper Chains

Christmastime brings back so many memories of when I was a kid. I remember learning to make the paper snowflakes or the construction paper link chains for the tree. My favorite was stringing the popcorn on the thread, yummo!

I have always liked the look of the paper doll cutout chains. So my challenge to you is to use a paper chain on your scrapbook page.

Here are a couple of website with templates:

Snowflake I used the Cottonwood snowflake template, turned it so two "arms" are touching the folds and cut.

Thanks for stopping by.

SBVC104 - Pieced Traditions

This week's SCS Scrapbook Variety Challenge is all about piecing things together. Today's challenge is to make a layout based on a Holiday Tradition. BUT, when creating your page I want you to include a paper pieced item that represents your tradition.


Baking cookies (gingerbread) with the kids. Cut out a piece of brown card stock and apply small paper pieces representing the icing.

Decorating the tree: paper piece the layers of the tree with different patterned papers.

Lighting the Menorah: cut a base for the candelabra, silvers of paper for the candles.

Making ornaments: cut out the shape of an ornament and lay on the paper layers.

I think you all know what I mean. Here is a link to some paper piecing ideas.

SBVC103 - The Music In You

This week's SCS Scrapbooking Variety Challenge involves music. I love music even though I don't have a musical bone in my body. lol. I crank up the music in the truck while driving. I have music playing while cleaning (for some reason it seems like I get a lot more done while playing music). So I'm sure you get the picture.

Your Challenge this week is to incorporate music into your layout. It can be in several ways:

Patterned paper
and/or perhaps the lyrics to your favorite song.
Thanks for looking.
