The holidays are so exciting. By the time Christmas arrives, my kids are so hyped on sugar and anticipation that we all have trouble deciding if we are coming or going! The excitement of Christmas day comes and goes (amazing how quickly they tear through what took many hours to shop for and wrap), and then we are on to an exciting few days of new toys and extra time with daddy, followed closely by all of the super fun New Year's Eve festivities!
And then, the winter sniffle bug hits the house. Hard. Amazing what a sinus infection can do to the brain, really.
So, what does this all have to do with scrapbooking?
Glad you asked!
I love scrapping! I really am happier when I can do something creative each and every day.
But all of the holiday fun on top of the raging sinus yuck has me a bit brain dead.
I want to create. It will help me feel better, I just know it.
However, my brain power does not seem up to the challenge.
What's a scrappy girl to do?
Hit the scrap drawer, of course!
You may remember this little peek into my scrap drawer in a previous post:
I head to this drawer pretty much every time I scrap. But, it is starting to get a little full of older papers and I think a good clearing is in order.
After about 20 minutes of sorting like colors and stapling stacks together, I have 8 lovely little page starters (that I just had to share on Instagram):Let's put some of those to use, shall we? That shouldn't require too much brain power. Here I have 3 sets of page starters and three photos.
How did I select the photos? Remember my adventure into using up every last letter sticker in one pack? Well, I only have 3 titles left to go and these photos will get those scrapped!
All I had to do was grab some background paper and some stickers and die cuts...
And here we have it!
Full of fun little scraps and bits and the last remaining letters in that pack of Thickers!
Scraps used, letters finished off, brain power not needed...
Now, that is some good medicine.
I DO feel better! YAY!
Now, off to cut up some more paper, fill that scrap drawer back up, and break down another pack of letter stickers to have at the ready...
See you soon!
