Some scrapbook pages

This past weekend, I finished Sophie's second 8x8 scrapbook.  Don't worry, I have two more empty 8x8 albums waiting for her!  I decided to try scanning the pages instead of photographing them, so we'll see which I like better.  The first one came out kind of crooked, but I already turned off the printer so I'm not going to re-scan's a learning curve.  I'm a pretty simple scrapbooker, usually I don't put a lot of embellishment on a page.  It shocked me when I started writing down all of the different companies and products that I used per page.

Here's the first one. It's the one that I scanned crooked.  It's an Instagram picture that I took of my husband and Sophie both passed out on a Sunday afternoon after we'd gone for a walk in the park.  All of my background cardstock is Bazzill.  I bought it in 8.5x11 and cut it down to 8x8.  I use the leftovers as embellishments on other pages.  The green patterned paper, vellum, and diecuts are from Deja Views Dog Days pack.  The journalling card and date card are from Max and Whiskers by Basic Grey.   Along the bottom, you might spot my Ek Success paw print border punch being used on a piece of kraft cardstock!

My second page is about a day when I came into my scrapbook room and caught Sophie gnawing on some scraps of cardstock that I had left on the floor.   This page is full of different companies!  The photo mat is from DCWV Pets mat stack.  The die cut that I used as a title is from a garage sale, so I don't know what company it is.  The bone that says Yum was cut from cardstock with my Cricut and Paper Pups.  Down in the bottom corner are two diecuts from the Dog Days pack and the little dog is from that Max and Whiskers set.  The brad that is the middle of the two flowers is from WRMK.  The strip of paper that I used along the bottom is from the old DCWV Scrapbook kit in a stack- Dog.  

This is the page that faces the previous one.  I always use the same color of cardstock on facing pages in Sophie's scrapbook, even if they are a one page layout.  It's just something I chose to do and have followed up on.  Here I used a chipboard die cut as the title again.  I can't remember the brand, because I got it at Hobby Lobby before I cared about brands and took it out of the packaging.  The same with the 3D bone at the bottom of the page.  The washi tape strips on the top and the bottom are from the Target brand washi tape.  I took that little design tip from my very favorite scrapbooking superhero, Glitter Girl.  :)  I again used some of the die cuts from the Dog Days stack here and there.  I also used a strip of paper that had been embossed with the Crafts Too "Bone and Paw Print" embossing folder.

Here's the last page in Sophie's second scrapbook.  It's another Instagram sized photo.  I took pictures of her in the morning before she went to the groomer and then again in the afternoon when I got her home from the groomer.  I used an app on my phone to do a photogrid of the pictures.  I used some patterned paper from the same DCWV stack as above and the strip of blue paper is a scrap from making another page into an 8x8.  The title was cut with Plantin Schoolbook and Baby Steps and used a couple of parentheses from the Dog Days stack.  I also used a piece of vellum from the Dog days stack at the bottom.  There's a strip of ribbon along the page that I got from Joann's and a little dog from Paper Pups in the bottom corner.  I thought the cute dog with the bow fit on a page about being groomed.  See the journaling right on the page?  That's another Glitter Girl influence.  It was scary, but I did it anyway.
