March 2014 - insert between weeks 11 & 12

Do you ever add inserts in your albums? Do you have an extra page just for special events like birthdays or celebrations?

I wanted to add an insert for Mark's birthday and for Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. I decided to dig into my ever growing stash of papers and cards. I had fun adding my own signature style to these pages and added a little mixed media to them.

For Mark's Birthday insert, I shared how I created the top and bottom cards by painting with Gelatos.

I then splattered some mist on them. I will have you know that sometimes we learn from making mistakes and I was sad to see the ink running through the wood grain and not getting the look I was after. Next time, I'll be sure to not that and use some of my stamps to get the look of splattered paint.

I couldn't resist doodling the outline of the words "sweet" on the bottom card. It just makes the words really pop from the page.

For this one I had room for each of our photos and so I didn't have a lot of room for embellishing, but Just Jaimee's kit was just the perfect addition to finish it off. I altered them a little bit since it wasn't really ice cream, but frozen fruit and coconut milk.

This page totally makes me giggle. I love how Asher wouldn't let me take a photo of him that morning. Every time I grabbed the camera he'd hide his face. Can you tell he's not a morning person? LOL

Mark's expression, oh goodness, he just makes me laugh. He's a dork, but I love him so much. Kuddos to him for making me look good in the morning. Asher got his morning grumpiness from me, poor kid.

Do you like adding little inserts in your scrapbook albums too? I love how they just break up the album so nicely. I really LOVE Becky Higgins' Design H page protectors for them too. They're like the perfect size for those little bits I want to add in to my albums.
