PRETTY PAGES FROM THE PINK REPTILE GALLERY | by JENN


One of my favorite things to do when my scrapping mojo tank is less than half full is to peruse the scrapbooking galleries. I love to grab a hot cup of coffee and see what all my fellow scrapping friends are making. It replenishes the mojo tank and inspires me for my future pages ... and it often puts me in the mood to play as well. This month I found a few pages that stood out to me for one reason or another and I'm excited to share these pretty pages with you today!

First up is Candy Tree by scrappin2girls:



Those two little faces cropped in close caught me instantly. I so badly want to know more about this delightful "candy tree"! Doesn't it look yummy? I love how the whole page is full of sweetness and candy colors. It's just darling.

My next page I want to share is Ouch by wvsandy:



I love so many things about this page. The overall grid composition is awesome. As it the whole magazine graphic vibe! I love how she used a combination of ribbon, dotted lines and stamps to segment her grid. The little word art pieces are the most adorable finishing touches to help tell the story. Hope everyone is all healed and feeling good!

The last page I have is Ethan by Eyeore:



Another "ouch" type page, honestly I am not drawn to people getting hurt or being in the hospital - I promise! I just couldn't resist that cute face in the photos! I love the way the word art and the boy falling doodle work together with the little alpha to create the most adorable title! It instantly tells the viewer what this page is about. The composition is so lovely and the attention to the edges with all the pretty colors of delicate brushwork is just beautiful.

Well done ladies! Thank you for inspiring and sharing your pretty pages in the PRD Gallery!

HYBRID | EASY PEASY HYBRID ALBUM


In this post I am going to show you how I made a cute little mini album with all Pink Reptile products that I made from a fun family trip. I am a little late scrapping these photos because they are of the first time my kids discovered sled riding.

I knew I had to make this album though because I wanted to preserve the memory of that day.

I created these 4 pages in Photoshop with two papers on each. Each half of page will be a page of my album after printing.


Papers from HeArt [blue] and Ta-Dah [grey]


Papers from Garden Party


Papers from It's Cold Outside


Papers from Garden Party [orange] and Ta-Dah [grey]

I printed all these on thick white paper along with a bunch of elements for decoration of my album.


CREATING MY ALBUM:

Step 1: I cut the pages of my future album and folded each of them in half.


Step 2: I decorated each page by adding photos and some elements.

The first page of my album has one photo:

I added tag [from Awesome Sauce], white leaves and a word strip [from All Eyes On You] on the photo:


On the left part, I stamped a french text with black ink.


And adedd a tag [from XOXO].


As a finishing touch I added the yellow gel dots.

--------

I folded the second page in three parts to create a flap.

Background paper is from Garden Party and I cut a piece of paper with big polka dots from Ta-Dah 
and glued it on the flap.



Added my photo on the flap.


Elements and stamp on the backside.


Then I cut another photo up so it fit on the left and middle page of my album. And added a bunch of elements.




Lastly I also added a few elements on the flap.


----------

For a third page I used a simple decoration by adding just 3 elements to my photo[tag from Awesome Sauce, word strip SMILE from Me, MySelfie and I)




And here I added two small stamped arrows.


-------------

For the next page, I created a flap at the bottom..



---------

I used two photos for the next pages and of course a few elements.




---------

The last page of my album has only one photo.



-------
Step 3: Build the album and create the cover

Once all pages were decorated, I glued them back to back,page by page.
Then I cut a large piece of paper as cover:


I glued the paper as cover of my album :


I decorated the front cover with different elements from Me, My selfie [camera], It's Cold Outside [word strip COLD] and Spring Flutters [pink tape]:



And to finish I added a word strip COLD from It's cold outside as my album title.


My album is finished !

As always I hope you enjoyed my post and if I inspired you in any way, shape or form then by all means make a photo of your project and upload it to your gallery so you can leave a link in the comment section below! I'd love to see what you made!
