Kristy T says, “This page documents the first of many fishing trips with my dad and daughter. He is a good fisherman, and my daughter had utmost confidence that she would have no problems catching some fish and that she was lucky.”

“I created a background of die cut fish stitched to the background to both show the abundance of fish she’s caught on this trip and many others. The stitching echoes the fishing line used to catch those fist. The soft blue watercolor highlights the fish and represents the ocean. I used a mixture of whites, blues, and natural tones (browns/grays) with texture in my title as well as my embellishments to give a natural and nautical feel to the page.”

“Not Lucky-Blessed” is by Sue Althouse who says, “This page is about all the events that fell into place to make our move back to Ohio possible. The title was pulled from my journaling and tells our viewpoint in just three words. The die cut shamrock covered by the no sign visually reinforces the story.”

Stefanie Semple says, “I started this page with a photo of me petting a lion cub, and then journaled about how I feel regarding luck and blessings.”

“I used a St Patrick’s styled kit by Stolen Moments, with a soft floral paper strip for the journaling and a pre-made photo cluster, which I placed on a great dimensional kraft paper. Because I had a see-through stitched vellum pocket I went for a glass-styled all caps alpha, which is visible but doesn’t draw too much attention from the photo cluster and the story. The colors are perfect to represent the Irish roots as well as the outdoorsy photo. ”

Christy Strickler says, “I decided to journal about what luck means to me. I chose bold graphic papers with vintage ephemera and quotes from a line that is designed to scrapbook about yourself. I made sure to include a little green here and there since I associate the color with luck.”

Terry Billman says, “I’m lucky that my job requires me to hob knob with well-known people.”

“I used a simple clean graphic design to focus on the photo of my husband and me with Condoleezza Rice. Plenty of white space allowed me to include many of the names of the celebrities I have had the opportunity to meet.  The thin colored lines bring your attention to the photo and the brads direct your eyes to the names.”

Vicki Hibbins says, “This layout is about why 13 was my Grandad’s lucky number. I used the Get It Scrapped membership template library to search for a template for one photo. I knew the journaling was really important and this template was perfect. I chose papers to complement the age of the photo and the striped deckchair in the background.”
