Wednesday Wrap-Up

0 comments
Happy Wednesday, scrappers!  School is in session (well, it is here anyway), and life just got busier.  If you're like me and don't have time to check in every day, here's a rundown of what has been going on here this past week.

On Thursday, Helen brought us a photo challenge.

On Saturday, Helen was back showcasing some great layouts using New Kid in Class.

And on Sunday, Carrin was here to discuss ways to scrap "embrace."

Have a wonderful week, and happy scrapping!

Sentiment Sunday 8/17/2014 {EMBRACE}

0 comments
Hello and welcome to August’s Sentiment Sunday on the Trixie Scraps blog.  It’s that time of the month when we encourage you to focus on one word and scrap what that word means to you.  This months’ sentiment is EMBRACE.

em·brace (em?br?s/): verb 1. hold (someone) closely in one's arms, especially as a sign of affection.  2. accept or support (a belief, theory, or change) willingly and enthusiastically.  3. ?include or contain (something) as a constituent part.????
noun 1. ?an act of holding someone closely in one's arms. 2. used to refer to something that is regarded as surrounding, holding, or restricting someone.??3. ?an act of accepting or supporting something willingly or enthusiastically.

To me, EMBRACE is when we take it all in, wrap your arms and heart around it.   “It” can be new things in your life, changes in your family or yourself…whatever is going on in your life right now.  We have to take some time out to look at our circumstances and EMBRACE the beauty that is there.  So…what are you EMBRACING this month?

Here's my layout, completed using Got Glasses? by Trixie Scraps.  




And just to sweeten the pot a little bit, here's a freebie to get you going!  Enjoy!

Challenge Thursday {Photo}

0 comments
Hi there and welcome to challenge Thursday, this week it's the photo challenge. I'm currently loving photos that are taken with the person/people having their backs towards the camera. I'm not quite sure what it is it just speaks volumes to me almost like catching a moment that they don't even realize you have caught. So your challenge this week is to take a photo (if you don't already have one) where the person has their back to the camera looking at something in front of them, and then scrap it and share it in the Trixie Scraps Gallery

Here is a little inspiration

Mid-August Wrap-Up

0 comments
Welcome to another week in review here on the Trixie Scraps blog!

Our Thursday challenge was brought to us by Carrin.  Go check it out...we'd love for you to participate!

On Saturday, MK shared some great layouts using one of my favorite kits, Love in the Garden.

Shilo brought us our Sunday Show-Off post.

And on Monday, Shilo discussed using gender-specific kits in non-gender specific ways.  It's a great way to stretch your scrap stash...and I personally love using boy kits to scrap my daughter.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
