Scrapbook Layout: 10th Wedding Anniversary

10th Anniversary Scrapbook Layout by Natalie Parker

The Story:  We celebrated a big one this year!! 1-0!

One scrapbook page for every anniversary:  We take a picture on each of our anniversaries and I turn it into a scrapbook layout and add it to the end of our wedding scrapbook.  I love how the scenery changes and we have changed over the years.

Guest book cards: As usual, I picked one “guest book card” that was signed by a wedding guest and included it on the page.  Read more about why we used guest book cards here.

More to scrapbook later: I have more pictures of our party and more thoughts that I will likely put into our 2016 scrapbook.  This page is to simply mark the year and matches all of its compadres in the Anniversary section (see below).

Previous Years:  Anniversaries 1-6, Anniversary 7, Anniversary 8, Anniversary 9.

Scrapbook Layout: Big Game

The Story:  I used two layouts for the Big Game, the tailgate Mr. P and I hosted, and the rally the night before.  A on of stuff to fit on two pages!

Collage it Up:  I went back to my teenage-collage-making roots with this one.  I couldn’t figure out how to get everything on the page to be cohesive design-wise.  I decided to screw it and make a collage.  Done and done.  I love how it turned out!

Previously: I’ve covered a ton of Cal football here before!  Check out my scrapbooks menu for more!

Scrapbook Layout: Football Season

The Story: Football.  Need I say more?

Key Ephemera: I have to have someplace to put my season tickets and our fridge magnet.  I love mixing them up with photos.  See more on how I scrapbook with fridge magnets here.

Changing up the Fonts: I’ve used Bebas almost exclusively on older football pages.  I decided to go with a smaller, more sleek headline this time.

More Football Layouts: I’ve done similar layouts for every year that I’ve been a season ticket holder.  They’re similar, but each have a slightly different take: 2004 part 1, 2004 part 2, 2005, 2006.

Go Bears!

Scrapbook Layout: Summer Misc

Summer Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerSummer Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerSummer Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerSummer Scrapbook Layout by Natalie Parker

The Story:  Lots of bits and pieces about 2007 that didn’t necessarily need their own layout.  In some cases, I had a bit of ephemera.  In others, I had just a couple of photos.

Multi-Event Page: As with the pages for my friend’s wedding, I could have made so many pages with this.  I didn’t want to spend that much time/space on any one of these so it made sense to combine them.

In the end, I thought this was a pretty effective way to use up stuff and tell a story!

Scrapbook Layout: Wedding Weekend in Atlanta

Atlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerAtlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerAtlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerAtlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerAtlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerAtlanta Wedding Scrapbook Layout by Natalie Parker

The Story: I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a very dear friend’s wedding.  Mr. P and I flew to Atlanta for a weekend’s worth of wedding activities.  It was my first time being in a wedding!  Other than my own, of course.

Three Pages, Could Have Been Six:  I originally planned one page per event in the wedding.  I went to a bridesmaids lunch, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the wedding, reception, after parties every night, plus seeing a bit of Atlanta.  I stepped outside of the box here and mixed everything together.  I realized that it wasn’t my wedding so I didn’t have to break it down into ever detail, nor did I have to use every piece of ephemera I saved.

Different Sizes, Black and White: I mixed photo sizes and mixed color and black and white photos.  It could have been a hot mess but actually ended up pretty cohesive looking!

Headline on Photo:  This was a new design challenge and I love the clean modern look of how it turned out.

Photos of Important Keepsakes: Remember, when you can’t put something in a scrapbook, take a picture of it.  The bride had handpainted fans made in China for the wedding guests.  She also bought each of us bridesmaids a pearl set from her friend’s shop in China (she’d take Mr. P and I to that very shop five years later).  The mother of the bride also gave each of us a handkerchief to carry with our bouquets.  Before working on the page, I put the pearls, the handkerchief, and the fan together and took a picture.

Scrapbook Layout: Giants Games

It’s baseball season y’all!  I’m still sitting over here in kind-of-actually-sunny London but my social media feeds are abuzz in baseball.  I’m also finding myself trying to explain the appeal of baseball to my British coworkers.

Side note – I’m amused when the page I have to blog about actually comes up at the right time of the year to show it.  I’m not a seasonal scrapbooker, as you know.

The Story: Cataloging the Giants games Mr. P and I went to in 2007.  This includes the always-important magnet schedule (learn about how I use magnets in scrapbooks here).

Number 750 / Lift-Up Tickets: Just by chance, we ended up at the game where Barry Bonds hit his 750th home run.  We took our tickets to the Giants Dugout Store to get a special pin a few days later and they stamped the back of the tickets.  I wanted to show the stamp and didn’t want to glue down either side of the tickets.  I hinged them just by gluing a strip at the top so they lift up.

Lots of Tickets: I love using tickets in my scrapbooks.  Want some tips about how to include them in your layouts?  I did a roundup of all sorts of examples here.

Scrapbook Layout: Big Game Week

Big Game Week Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerBig Game Week Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerBig Game Week Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerBig Game Week Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerBig Game Week Scrapbook Layout by Natalie Parker

The Story: This is the big rivalry week at my alma mater.  Mr. P and I participate in some activities and go back to help the students with the bonfire rally.

Project Life Style: Noticing a pattern?  I was hit hard by Project Life inspiration recently.  You don’t have to do Project Life to use its ideas.  I like that it’s given me a new way to think about displaying a lot of items at once.  Here, I was going to do three rows per page but settled on two when I counted up the number of pictures + ephemera.

Black & White + Color: I can’t believe this worked out so well.  Truly.  It’s like I planned it that way.  Usually I go uniformly one way or the other but the mix really works here.  Expanding my style again!

Trimmed Ephemera: In order for this design to work, I had to be okay trimming down ephemera to fit the space.  I won’t do that all the time but it was no problem here.

Negative Space: What I really like about experimenting with Project Life design is flexing my design muscle when it comes to headlines.  You won’t see anything like this in my previous books.

Previously: I’ve scrapbooked Big Game Week for a few years now, each one of them different: 2003 (still a student), 2004 (layouts here and here) , and 2005 (layouts here and here).
