months in review

One of the things I started last year was to come up with a monthly layout that captures the highlights of our month.  This is for the little things that I would have otherwise forgotten if not documented.  Now I can easily look back at when my DD started having a liking for peanut butter sandwich or vanilla yogurt and when she became obsessed with those little ponies.

These layouts were part of the marathon layouts I did over the holiday season (I already previously shared my Jan to June layouts).   So here goes my July to January “project life” layouts. (Just let me know if you need more details on specific supplies.  I am not listing it here due to the volume (and my fading memory, ha!) but I can look up specifics for you upon request).

For July,I thought the Stitches and Swirls make for an interesting background.  And did I tell you how I have recently fallen in love with the colour black?

Love black... here's another case in point.

I felt quite proud being able to use the largest flourish in Fancy Flourishes as an "S" in this layout (wink, wink).

Yellow and gray is one of my favourite go-to combos.  Glad to have found a My Mind's Eye paper in those colours.  And the hexagon pattern is a total bonus!

Hands down my favourite month of the year!  (as it is my DD's birthday month)

Here are the little things that made the holidays even more special...

My first monthly layout for 2013!  I am  also linking this to Leigh Penner's challenge #14 of using a stamp repeatedly in a layout.  I stamped "let it snow" repeatedly on the half and half die on the upper left (while singing let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!).

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love all your pages! Perfection! :)

  2. Great layouts. Love the Stitches & Swirls as a background.
    The Fancy Flourish as an S is very creative.

  3. Great pages. I love how your pictures are the focus rather than the embellishments. September is my fav.

  4. So many things to say bout these, that I how you used a flourish as an 's', the mixec chevron in the next....just great details!

  5. These are all wonderful! Love your CAS style...everything is embellished and accented perfectly! Really allows your photos of your beautiful daughter to shine and take center stage like they should be.


  6. These all look fabulous, Irma! I especially love the stitches and swirls stamped in black on the white background!
    I meant to tell you that I was thinking of you when I created my Photo a Day Summer 2012 layouts... I had them on my dining room table 3 or 4 at a time and worked on them assembly line style, just like you've said before how you scrapbook. It worked great!

  7. Love the month in review idea! Great pages!
