Scrapbooking on a Budget

So far, I'm sticking to my New Years resolution...

As you could image I stay busy making and creating. The project for this week happens to be a scrapbook!

As a christmas present, my amazing boyfriend started a scrapbook of our past two years together, which was something I had been talking about doing for awhile now. He picked everything out, and printed out dozens of pictures. And now, I get to take all of his prep-work and turn it in to a beautiful scrapbook full of fun memories! -- Just a warning: this is  mushy, gushy project.

this is the actual scrapbook he choose, and the picture he choose for the cover! He's precious :)

Like many of you, I am a BEGINNER scrapbooker. So I have decided to document the creation of this scrapbook from beginning to end... 

Day 1: 

Page 1: Our first date.
 This is the only picture from our first date, so I've got a lot of room to be creative with this page. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased some 3D embellishments (on sale for 40%off woohoo!) and I think with some cute fonts, and a little story insert, I can make an awesome page. I will be coming back to this page next week when I get a little more inspiration. 


Page 2: Our friends said we were always "puppy lovin"
These are a few photos from the very beginning of our relationship when we were just dating and extremely smitten for each other. 
So, I took different color cardstock to place behind each photo, as well as a small cut out of patterned paper. I bought a few love-inspired sticker sets at hobby lobby as well, and a sheet of pink letters to bring this page to life! 

Page 3: My Sorority Formal
I still have some pictures to print for this page, but I'm seriously struggling with creative ideas for it...

Page 4: Summer Braves Game
I think this page should be pretty straight forward: a few pictures, some stickers and embellishments from hobby lobby and there ya go!

The rest of my pages look like the ones above and have small ideas in the works. I will have a good amount of creative time over the next few weeks, and I can't wait to see how this project will turn out!!  

I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes, which I painted of course :)

Until next time,
