Jillibean Soup Pages

Coming off a a great weekend of scrapping - 18 hours of cropping at Red Letter Journals in Grove City, OH and 8 pages completed. Well, mostly completed.

Wait...back up....did she say 8 pages?
Not 18 or 28....8?!?!

What on earth was I doing??? I feel like I was working the whole time, but with all the breaks to shop and eat and talk and win prizes....I just didn't end up with a lot of pages. And they're not even all totally completed - I still need to print some pictures and a few other odds and ends. Oh well, it was fun!

I also did a make-and-take hosted by Jill Yegerlehner of Jillibean Soup - so nice and so helpful! We did a tag project with the new Hearty Barley line. I made three pages with Jillibean pieces and repurposed my make-and-take tag into a journaling block on one of them:

Used pieces from Hearty Barley and Blossom Soup. I made my own "chipboard" title, with four layers of the word glued together with the top later of pattern paper. 
Have you seen this commercial, with the dog worrying over his bone? That could totally be Junior! 

Again used pieces from Hearty Barley and Blossom Soup. 
I had some shiny bright red ribbon I wanted to use, from an event at my new job, but it was
too bright and shiny for this page.  So, I stuck a piece of vellum on top - toned it down a lot!
Also, I scraplifted a page from this month's Scrapbooks Etc. for this one. 
Sorry, I don't have the mag here with me right now - I'll add that info later tonight.

I think this is all Hearty Barley, except the background piece - I think that is Cosmo Cricket?
I used the make-and-take tag, moved the pieces from it around, and turned it into my journaling block.
I also used Shimelle's Scrapbook Page Starter for this one - so thanks to Shimelle for some inspiration :).
I'm working on getting my November Counterfeit Kit together this week.  If you'd like to use up some stash, start off a new month and play along with us at the CKCB.

Have a great week!


  1. Great pages - I especially like the second one with the ribbon. Sounds like you had a great time scrapping!

  2. I would love to crop with the ladies from JillibeanSoup! Great pages, love the Ohio Union pics!

  3. LOL - I think 8 pages PLUS a lot of fab conversations, cakes, competitions and shopping (there probably is a C word for that but it's my bedtime here in teh UK) sounds the perfect amount!

    Great pages too!

  4. gosh, I love that second layout with the focus on the side of the page - need to try that one!

  5. Like the layered ribbons and the doggie! :)
