I’m just going to say it: I love this page.

Something has been happening with me lately. And that something is rediscovering how fun scrapbook page design can be. I realize this is basically my thing that I’m most known for and how I’ve made my living for the past several years, but sometimes I forget how much fun designing pages and saving stories can be.

I feel like card making has inspired my scrapbooking. Using some of the tools I’ve acquired over the past year to make cards, I’ve found more inspiration for ways to incorporate them into my memory keeping. Plus, I’m seriously swimming in nostalgia right now with two seniors in my life (one in high school; one in college.) I’ve realized that I still have so many stories to save, and that, my friends, is a happy thing.

This page celebrates how much I have loved watching my offspring play sports, and especially the sport of ultimate. There is really something special about it. There is a spirit in ultimate that I love and one that makes me want to be involved in volunteering at ultimate events for years to come. And I have my children to thank for this.

This page began its life as a digital template.

I had an idea and created a basic design. Then I exported the title to create my own cut file (learn how to do that by watching this video), and then used the journaling layer to add my story. I turned of all the other layers and printed the journaling onto a sheet of 8.5 x 11 Neenah Solar White cardstock.

I love the little border of banners on this design, as well as the Pink Paislee Turn the Page paper pack! (See below for complete supply list.)

Here is a tutorial that shows you how I put the page together. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I’ll be back soon with another scrapbooking project.

    Love this scrapbook page! Thanks so much for your great video and ideas. Although I love beautiful cards, I miss the scrapbook pages of yesteryear so I enjoy seeing new things come up on the internet on blogs and places like Altenew and other current companies. Thanks again for sharing your talents with us!! Have a fabulous weekend.

    I am excited to learn how to do this, but there isn’t a link.

    Ditto. I, too, am not a card maker although I love your cards. Thanks for throwing some scrapbook pages into the mix now and then. I’m using some of your products that employ the above script font in my grandchildren’s yearbooks this year, and with continuity in mind can you tell me the name of the font? I already have Archer, which I think is the other font, but the script one eludes me.

    So, yeah, this awesome video makes me want to scrapbook again, grown kids, scattered grandkids, and lack of storage space notwithstanding. I overthink. The key word here is FUN! Thanks, Cathy.

    Nostalgia is in the air at my house as well with two granddaughters graduating from high school and heading to college. I love this page. I think it would be a good way to use some of those scraps I’ve saved.

    Nostalgia is definitely in the air at my house as well with two granddaughters graduating from high school this year and both heading off to college in different parts of the country in the fall. I love this page.Those banners might be a great way to use some of the scraps I’ve saved.

    I like the page for sure, it’s great to see your pages always. And I see some fresh embellishments, enamel dots, Cathy! πŸ™‚

    I can definitely see how the card making is influencing your scrapbooking style – there was a time where butterflies and enamel dots (and even the flags at the top and bottom) would not have found a home on your pages. I adore your clean and simple style, but it is so FUN to see you getting a little fancy!!!

    Love the page! How did you do the cut-file of the title? Was that with the Cameo machine? Did I miss the “how to” portion of that?

    DeeDee, Marilyn, Alicia: The video Cathy refers to is in her May 11, 2018 Blog Post, which is one or two before this post. Hope that helps : )
