chess

Ideas for Scrapbook Pages about Your Hobbies and Geeky Pursuits | Katie Scott | Get It Scrapped

Smart Girls Rule by Katie Scott | Supplies: Glitz patterned paper; We R Memory Keepers cardstock; American Crafts letter stickers; Crate Paper border stickers; Chess Pieces and Board cut file from Jaime Koay; Chess Pieces cut file from Cali Arroyo.

Katie Scott says, “My daughter and I play chess whenever we get the chance. This photo was taken during our summer road trip. Whatever your geeky pursuit, there is probably a themed cut file in the Silhouette store. I searched for ‘chess’ and found one set that included the boards and smaller pieces and another that included the large chess pieces.  While I don’t tend to use themed scrapbook products, using the Silhouette when I need something very specific has become a fun approach

coins

State Quarters by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Deena Rutter: Every Little Bit- Wander Papers; Karla Dudley: Dad’s Day Cardstock, Zephyr Alpha and Zephyr Shape Stitches; Mommyish Essential Styles- Epoxy II; Laura Passage: Tiny Paper Bits Template

Amy Kingsford says, “This page is about my State Quarter collection.  It took me 9 years to collect all 50 and now I’m hanging onto them to pass onto my boys when they are a bit older.  Collecting these was sort of a trend in the 2000’s and I got hooked.  I would go to the bank on the official release dates to get brand new shiny quarters and even bought one of those maps to showcase them in. I was inspired to use a scattered circle foundation for this page because it reminded me of spreading my coins out to look through them for the ones I was missing. I also sprinkled in of bits of silver glitter to mimic the glint of those shiny new quarters.”

Gamer Girl by Carrie Arick | Supplies: Zest Papers & Elements by Lynn Marie; Lightbulb Moment Alpha by Just Jaimee; Fonts: Wolf in the City, 1942 Report

Carrie Arick says, “Call of Duty: Black Ops had a double experience point weekend over Labor Day, which I enjoyed immensely. Because of the geeky topic, I wanted to create a graphic with a girly feel. I used geometrics patterns, colors and embellishments that have this graphic and girl vibe. I extracted the image of my hand holding the Xbox controller from my photo with the Photoshop Lasso tool following the tutorial here.”

Let the Games Begin by Jett Hampton | Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Paper: Simple Stories, Bella Blvd, AC Amy Tangerine; Alphas: AC Thickers, Basic Grey, Making Memories; Enamel Dots: Basic Grey; Buttons and twine: Stash

Jett Hampton says, “This page captures my love of all games, from Candy Crush to board games. Since the photos here are busy, I focused on primary colors and used just a few embellishments.  The strip with the months came from a 6×6 pad, but was cut to line the top and bottom of the block, and reflects that games are played year round.”

Stefanie Semple says, “This layout celebrates my gaming addiction, and the fun and reward it gives me. I googled images and used the Tribez logo as well as photos of me playing the game.

Jennifer Kellogg says, “This page is about my first computer in 1985. I’m a total computer geek. In the 1970s there wasn’t much info about computers, and it was outrageous to think that one day there would be personal computers–but I had one of the first in my dorm during my sophomore year in college! I wanted to journal about my love for this computer and throw in little retro bits like the dot matrix font.”

Tracking by Debbie Hodge | Supplies: Lemondrop by One Little Bird; Today’s Story by Laurie Ann; New Growth 6 by Katie Pertiet; Road Trip by Paislee Press; Blackout, Bohemian Typewriter fonts

Debbie Hodge says, “My youngest son was turned onto geocaching by his aunt and uncle a few years ago, and I’ve made several pages over the years documenting this activity. Here are two of them. The first is that first hunt he went on with his aunt and uncle. The second shows him this past spring going out and freshening up the prizes on a cache he hid a year ago. We love getting the emails that let us know each time someone has found the cache and logged in their comments.

Puzzling by Debbie Hodge | Supplies: all from DesignerDigitals.com

Debbie Hodge says “This page is all about my love for numbers puzzles, including how I choose and store my books for easy bedtime access, and my preference for sharp pencils and fresh erasers. I overlaid a photo of puzzle pages onto an extracted portrait of myself.”

Sky Watchers by Carrie Arick | Supplies: Wishing Well Creations: Carefree Elements & Papers; Fonts: Old Press Style, Pea Big Al Font

Carrie Arick says, “Astronomy is one of my hobbies and I’ve gotten our neighbors interested in watching the NASA launches, which is what is happening on this page. I used the hot air balloons to clue you into the sky watching. The gingham pattern with the framed pattern paper made me think of picnicking, emphasizing the community activity.”

military history

War of 1812 by Carrie Arick | Supplies: Just Jaimee: Storyteller Collection- September, Doodled Circle + Lines Bundle, Pronouncial Alpha
Font: SimSun

Carrie Arick says, “My son studies military history for fun and this page is about his War of 1812 phase. The title also acts as the focal point, which reinforces that this was his main hobby at the time. I used word art to signify that that the subject occurs on daily basis and he shares what he learns.”

Legos

Ideas for Scrapbook Pages about Your Hobbies and Geeky Pursuits | Marcia Fortunato | Get It Scrapped

You can never have or be too old for Legos! by Marcia Fortunato.

Marcia Fortunato’s grown sons still love their Lego bricks, and this layout finds three of them (at ages 26, 22, and 20) recently in the attic and building. Marcia used colorful, san-serif alphas for her title along with chalkboard-doodled elements that harken back to school days, a time when we’d expect to see boys playing with Legos.
