Scrapbooking “10 Things” Using the Full Bloom Collection

Hello! I am having a hard time with the fact that Edward is now 8 years old! Those eight years have flown! Just a few moments ago, I was just sitting here thinking about the things I love about him… and then I jotted them down on paper so I would not forget them! He is such a good kid with a lot of good qualities. I just love him.

For this 10 things scrapbooking layout, I decided to use the gorgeous Full Bloom collection. I love the gorgeous colours and patterns in this collection. It’s so very different and pretty… and the stickers are even prettier in person.

Make the Patchwork Quilt Scrapbook Layout

Several years ago when my mom retired from her 20-year teaching career, she decided to make a ninety-degree change and become a student – learning quilting! She spent hours upon hours learning the process, techniques and stitching from an expert quilter from her church, and took on the time-consuming challenge of making thoughtful, personalized quilts for all four of her kids, as well as her grandkids.

She’s made me two patchwork quilts that I absolutely adore, one ballet-themed and one themed around my dogs, and they’re my favorite gifts from her. Today’s Patchwork Quilt Scrapbook Layout was inspired by my love of these quilts. Let’s take a look!

How to Create the Timber Scrapbooking Layout

When I was in my early teens, my favorite place to escape to starting in early spring and lasting through late fall was a gentle creek that flowed behind my house. It was surrounded by beautiful woods, and I’d sit on a rock and journal – just close enough that I could dip my fingers in and touch the cool, shallow water when I needed creative inspiration, and I’d admire the trees that stretched up toward the sky and seemed to reach the clouds from where I sat. From the elms and birch trees to the maples and oaks – each tree brought its own uniqueness to my secret sanctuary.

When I made this layout with the new Timber Paper Pack, I couldn’t help but realize that the stunning papers evoked a similar sentiment, bringing something extra special and personal to my memories. Today, I’d like to share this gift with you.
