scrapbook update layouts | part 1

I've posted a ton of layouts over at Scrapbook Update since I started writing for the site in March, but I think I've only ever posted one of those pages here. As part of my wrap-up posts for 2011 (you'll be seeing more of those as I have time- books I've read, number of layouts made, etc.), I thought I'd bring all those layouts home to live on my own blog. There are so many that it'll have to be done in two posts, so please enjoy this first one, and the second will be up tomorrow!

My very first layout for Scrapbook Update was for my review of the Papertrey Ink Banner Builder die set. Even after all these months, that's still one of my most-used die sets, and I love this layout because it's one of the very first that I made without scraplifting or using a sketch, and it really started something for me.

From my Decorative Tape Trend Watch post- perhaps the first time that stormtroopers have been used in a Scrapbook Update article (and as long as I'm still there, I'm sure it won't be the last :) ).

From my Trend Watch article on honeycombs, hexagons, and lattices. One of my absolute favorite pages I've made all year.

Oh, look, more Stormtroopers! As seen in my article about fashion and home decor motifs in Halloween lines.
