Sibling scrap pages – February 2014

There were many opportunities to take pictures of the children in February and I’ve created scrap page compilations of the random every day photos (a mixture of posed, on the sly and at their request). I’m still struggling with my scrap pages and found these difficult to complete so these took longer than I’d hoped but I’m pleased I’ve completed them before the end of the month. Siblings scrap layout February 2014 - darktea

I’ve finished these pages just in time to include them in the Sibling linky (I’m aiming to be earlier next month).

    Aww, this is a lovely set of photos. I especially like the one swinging on the work surface and of them both dressed up x

      Thank you. I’m continually amazed how strong he is, I’d love to be able to support my weight like that.

    I take my hat off to anyone who manages to even print off a photograph of their children these days! I started a scrap book in 2011, with the intention of doing one every year, sadly that’s where it started and ended! These photos are gorgeous though, every day moments worth remembering :)

      I do digital scrapbooking so it is all done on my computer. When I’ve finished the year I will put them all together and have a book printed (although I’ve started several years I haven’t finished one yet, but I’m sure I will at some point).

    I’m terrible at taking photos of my two. We have loads of our eldest – couldn’t stop snapping away and then the second came along and we barely have any. Feeling a little guilty! Must try harder!!

      I was the same, until I did project 52 last year and started looking for excuses to take pictures and I’m now much better at snapping little moments.

    What a lovely collection of pictures!
    It is important to keep a reminder of all good times kids have

      Thank you. I hope when the children are older we can look back and see how much they enjoyed each company

    What a nice idea. I’d like to try this myself x

      I love my scrap pages and would recommend it. I use them as my screensaver so I get to see lots of our best photographs, I just want to finish more of them.

    Love that picture of your little one with the scarf and what looks to be a net toy box on his head! So cute :)

      As I took items out of the box to sort them out he decided to help by wearing them all and had a lot of fun doing it :)

    It looks like there has been plenty of fun this month! x

      Yes, lots went on in February, particularly for M as that is the cut down selection of pictures.

    This is a lovely set of totally natural photos, I really ought to get into doing something like this, as time flies by and they change so quickly :-(

      When I started doing scrap pages I realised they were just of events and I ignored the random shots and decided to create these monthly summary pages and I think I now take more pictures of them.

    I love the idea of doing an online scrapbook. I’d love to do something like this, the layours are brilliant.

    • Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:22 pm | Permalink

      I create the layouts in Photoshop Elements and intend to have them printed in a photo book at the end of year. The layers are created using drop shadows and really make a difference to the realism of the page.

    Oh wow. These look brilliant. I really should start something like this. Gorgeous photos xx

    • Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:35 pm | Permalink

      Thank you. I use my completed layouts as my screensaver and love seeing them collated with the story. I would highly recommend it.

    Great photo, a lovely idea. I have a few old picture collages from a life before digital cameras, it’s a great way to look back on photos.

    • Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:36 pm | Permalink

      Oh gosh, I’ve got at least one photo collage somewhere from the days we had to wait for the photographs to be developed. I wonder what happened to it when I had to empty my study to make way for a baby.

    This is such a lovely way to create memories. A great keepsake.

    • Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:41 pm | Permalink

      Thank you. The children love looking through them, especially the ones of them ;)

  13. Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:00 pm | Permalink

    Your kiddies are cuties!
    I love your scrap pages and have never seen this idea before – looks great x

    • Posted April 1, 2014 at 9:43 pm | Permalink

      Thank you. Scrap pages are originally done using paper, but I do digital scrapbooking and use Photoshop Elements.

  14. Posted April 5, 2014 at 2:43 pm | Permalink

    They’re lovely. I have loads of these on my laptop but I never thought to use them on my blog! I might just have to pinch your idea and get creative!

    • Posted April 7, 2014 at 8:53 am | Permalink

      I’ve got a few here from last year as well. I’ve got the start of the year of my Project 52 but I haven’t finished it yet and I think all my layouts for January and February 2013. I want to share more of them, so I’ll hopefully find time to complete some of them. I’ll look forward to seeing yours.
