Two double layuots - "Around Town" and "Miracle"

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!! I wish I were scrapping, but hopefully soon! Thought I'd better at least take time to post something. =)

This is another layout of Lake Placid, NY. We were there last fall and I'm still working on cranking out the pages. We took so many pictures. I'm trying to only scrap the best, but still have a lot to work on.

I had lots of fun with circles and faux stitching. The base is Little Yellow Bicycle's "Twig". All of the circles came from my scrap box, Cloud 9 Design, Deja Views, and more. I lined up the photos on a matt edged with the Fiskars postage stamp border punch.

The circles are made with SU 2.5" circle punch. I used journalling strips and inked the edges with T. Holtz pumice distressing ink.
The title font is from Cricut Cake's Birthday Cake cartridge.

Do you remember the 1980 winter Olympic games when the US defeated Russia for the gold medal in hockey? Okay, so I'm not a hockey fan at all, but those olympic games are a huge part of Lake Placid's claim to fame. You should check out the movie made about it called "Miracle on Ice". These pictures were taken at the arena where it all happened.
The paper is Coredinations and Paper Studio. I opted for letter stickers from The Paper Studio for the title. I matted the photos with two different colors of gray. The fun 3D looking star accent is from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
It's extremely rare for me to not use any patterned paper on a page. I wasn't even thinking about it at the time, but sure enough, there is none to be found. =) It lets the multiple pictures (9!!) shine through and be the stars of the page.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Enjoy your weekend!!


  1. You must be scrapbooking at home. I don't recognize any of these layouts.

  2. LOL! Nope! I wish I was. I think I did these the last time we scrapped at the hood. =)
