Introducing Taylor and Scrap Maps

Say hello to my new nephew, Taylor! Isn't he adorable?! He was born November 5. He weighed 9 lbs 15 oz and was 23 inches long! What a little chunk. I am absolutely in love with baby Taylor and can't wait to see him again.

Okay, now back to stamping!

Last month for Club, I planned something a little different for my ladies. Instead of having a layout for them to copy, I gave them a Scrap Map. This is a "map" that gives a basic layout idea. Scrap Maps are great for helping get your creativity flowing and for getting you to scrap out of your box--using a layout idea that you may not normally use.

I showed them my pages created from the Scrap Map, let them choose from some of my retired designer paper and let them loose. I made two samples--a Fall themed one and an adorable girly layout that I don't get to do very often. I'll upload the Fall one later--I'm going to put pictures on it first. I gave the girly layout to my friend Jennifer. Here are some samples from a few of the ladies. There are actually 8 in the club, but two were missing and I didn't think to take pictures until the rest were gone!
