using Albums Made Easy cards on layouts...

Hey everybody!

Happy happy Monday! Today I'm sharing something I love...well, a few things I love.

I really really love scrapbooking (duh.) and I really really love pocket-scrapping our day-to-day lives. And now I really really love combining the two...

I've always kept my papers for the two scrap-styles separated...don't ask me why. I just figured that...well,truthfully I don't know what I figured.

BUT, recently, after getting a pack of Albums Made Easy cards from We R Memory Keepers, and after freaking out over the designs and colors, I decided I wanted to combine the two styles.

This is the package I got...

...just look at those gorgeous colors! 

I started going through the box and found that, although the pack itself looks really pretty feminine, there are tons of cards that can be used for boy projects! Woo hoo!

I grabbed a bunch of cards I loved and got to work using them as mats under my photos on's what I made...

I used just 3 cards on this layout of my son, 4x6 (the green chevron behind the photo) and two 3x4 (one horizontal and one vertical) just to the right of the photo. 

The cards set the tone for the colors of my layout, so I just grabbed some things that I thought worked well and add them...and I love the way it turned out!

For this layout of my son, Tyler, I did basically the same thing, except this time I used two 4x6 cards behind my photo and 2 3x4 cards to the right of my photo. Now, you'll have to forgive wasn't until I was editing these photos that I realized I created basically the SAME EXACT layout twice. I guess I just really love the basic design...

Each of these layouts came together in under an hour...probably because I didn't have a whole lot of figuring out to do. The cards dictated the embellishment colors and they were already the perfect size! would YOU like some of these fantastic Albums Made Easy cards to help make your scrapping easier? You would? Of course you would...
