Scrapbook Sunday: June Messy Box

June 18, 2017   /   byLaura Hager  / Categories :  Feeds













Happy Sunday! It’s Laura here, and I’m back to share my June Messy Box scrapbooking pages with you. One of my favorite things to do is travel. And when I’m traveling, I always take lots of pictures, collect paper, and save tickets from where I go. I love coming home with a variety of photography and memorabilia to scrapbook. I have a box where I save all my treasures until I’m ready to scrapbook. Unfortunately, I’ve gotten very behind on my travel books. I was so excited to see the travel theme! It was perfect for helping me get caught up on some of my past travels!


When I saw the tropical leaf cards, I knew that I wanted to use them to get my Hawaii pages started. I added the location with alphabet stickers and used a stamp to mark an X on the destination card. The chipboard letters that come with this month’s kit are so fun. I used them to add the abbreviation for Hawaii on the bottom card. Then, I filled the last pockets with pictures from my trip. It became the perfect first page for my Hawaii trip scrapbook!




I recently went to Portland to visit my friend, and I’m trying to get these pages finished before they get added to the “to be scrapbooked” box. My photographs had a lot of pink tones, so this kit matched perfectly. It really made my photos pop! On this page, I added several of the cute little tab stickers that were included in the kit. These helped me bring out more of the colors in my photos. 


I still had some great cards left, so I decided it was finally time to pull my Paris photographs out of the box. The pink city card was so perfect for this page. I wanted to keep the title page for my travel albums simple, so I just inserted a few more cards and added a little bit of text. I love how this page turned out! When starting a new album or section of my travel album, I like to have title pages to get things started. 



What I really loved about this month’s Messy Box was that I was able to work on pages from three totally different destinations and the cards were able to match each one perfectly. This kit had such variety that it’s possible to document almost any vacation! Plus, the colors are gorgeous! I had so much fun working on these pages and it feels great to be getting caught up on my scrapbooking.

Do you also have a “to be scrapbooked” box of treasures? What vacations or memories will you be documenting with your June Messy Box? xo. Laura

Sharp Corners with Chain Stitch

In her Field Guide to Birds, Carolyn Hedge Baird recommends Chain Stitch as one of only a few stitches great for outlining. I agree and I love to use and recommend it for thick outlines. There’s little problem with it if the line is straight or curvy. But what if your area has corners or […]
