Working my 6"x6" paper pads

Good morning!
Today I'm sharing five layouts made with papers from small paper pads, mostly 6''x6''.
This is Yearbook from Studio Calico. It was refreshing to work with these rich red colors, it was a long time ago. The title is rub-ons I found in my stash when I was cleaning out a box I haven't opened in years. I decided to try them on a project I haven't showed you yet and they worked perfectly so now I have them on my desk and I intend to use them until there is nothing left.  

This is MME Lost & Found 3 Oliver. I think this is such a nice layout style if you want to use a 6''x6'' paper pad. It showcases the paper in a good way and it is easy to spice it up in all kinds of ways.
This is He Said / She Said by Teresa Collins. I used the same starting point as above but I think the two layouts look very different. My sister-in-law took these photos for a photography assignment in school and I think they turned out very sweet eventhough the setting is our livingroom and not a fancy photo studio.
This is Studio Calico's Yearbook. Here I love the fact that I could mix the Classic Diesel QK-font with the Grand Diesel QK-font and "Robin" fit perfectly between the "H" and the "d" in "Hood". The flowers are metal and have been in my stash for a long time and they have cute velvet brads in the middle. I actually quite like them!
This is: Simple Stories Sn@p 24/7. My kids eat cookies they got in the mail from one of my penpals and I saved the wrapper to make a scrapbook page with memorabilia, a bit like old school and I really like it. It isn't perfect in design but it sure draws a lot of attention in the album and especially the kids love pages with memorabilia.
I'm still showing you layouts Í made during my three weeks off from work (and blogging) and I'm speeding up the process a bit because now I have gotten back my scrapping mojo and I will soon have finished round two of the Facebook challenge to make 50 projects before shopping again and I really want to show all my projects and be up to date in the blog when it is time to start the challenge all over again. So tomorrow I have more layouts and some mathematical scrapbooking I made with my protractor and ruler :)
Take care and stay healthy!
