Make | 8×8 Layout – Let’s Be Still

8x8 Scrapbook Layout | "Let's Be Still" | Blackbird Darlin

I finally jumped on the monthly scrapbook kit bandwagon, and I am looooooving it! Almost everything on this layout was done with the November “Good Stuff” Citrus Twist PL kit, my first one ever, and the ones I’ve received after that are also pretty rad.

I love texture on my pages, but I’m a pretty flat scrapbooker…adding those wood chips to the page was a definite jump out of my comfort zone. They’re JUST flat enough though, that I might be doing this more often!

YAY for happy, pretty things in the mail. And pretty new records worth scrapbooking about. ;)

Make | 12×12 Layout – Photobooth Fun

12x12 Scrapbook Layout | "Photobooth Fun" | Blackbird Darlin

The moment of discovering the woodgrain cardstock over at LCI Paper Company was a game changer for me. I. CAN’T. EVEN. It’s so great you guys, but the buying in bulk thing is the only deterrent. Unless you’re like me and all you want is woodgrain cardstock in bulk for the rest of your scrappy life.

The other things on this layout that are not woodgrain are: Film border washi tape from Michaels! Patterned paper from the 6×6 Echo Park This & That pad! Square picture prints from Persnickety!

Let’s talk about the title letters for a minute though. No, those are not Thickers. I know I’m going to get stoned by 93% of scrapbookers with broken Marvy Uchida punches for saying this, but…


I don’t get the obsession with Thickers.


Why?! Well, probably because I can cut my own by running adhesive-backed foam through my QK Revolution and not have stacks of X’s and Z’s in my stash.

So I guess I actually DO love Thickers, just the DIY version of them. (Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this) The alphabet I used was the 4×8 Chandelier die, and the foam itself is from Michael’s. The nesting circle die is also Quickutz, the big one in white cardstock, and the skinnier one in kraft. Journaling was just a black Micron pen on white cardstock scraps!

By the way, I really love those pictures. What a fun day that was!

Make | Card – “Come Away With Me”

"Come Away With Me" Card | Blackbird Darlin

I have such a weakness for travel themed paper products. Here is an example of me putting some of them to use. YEAH!

The patterned background, map image, and banner are all taken from the My Mind’s Eye Come Away With Me 6×6 paper pad. I cut the cream and kraft circle with these Quickutz dies, and stuck a couple of gunmetal colored brads through the map to add a bit of dimension. Mmmmmmm dimensiiionnn…

I also had to ink around the patterned paper because I can’t seem to not do that.

And for once, the photo corners are actually not real photo corners. Ancient QK 2×2 die! Booyah! Getting used!

Make | 6×6 Layout – Seine Side


I’m not a 6×6 scrapbooker. So, I’m not really sure what happened here.

An adorable polka dot paper from Teresa Collins Far and Away 6×6 pad, and an experimental 3×4 polaroid print (my camera just became a not-so-Instamax!) resulted in this. I mounted the pic with kraft photo corners, added a short border using the Fiskars Threading Water punch, and then date stamp and handwriting with a Sharpie on the white picture border to finish it off. YAY!

Since I don’t really have an album to put this in right now, I decided to paint an 8×8 block of wood with white acrylic paint, Super Glue a bulldog clip on the top (all found at my local Blick store), and use it to display little pages like this when I’m in the mood to scrap a pic or two, but don’t want to commit to a 12×12.


Fun and easy!
