FAMILY SCRAP PAGE WITH NATURE’S POEM PAPER!

If you have followed me for a while you would notice that I don’t do a lot of scrapbooking.  I have done a page here and there.  (If you want to see some of them then be sure to click on the tag ‘scrapbooking’ at the top and it will take you to some of the posts).

I have had this photo for a couple of years now with the idea of scrapping it.  I needed to make a page this week and thought of this photo again – and it was time to do something with it.  So … I made a scrap page. 🙂

Here it is for you.

WHAT I HAVE USED

Card and Paper: Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Tranquil Tide cardstock, Sahara Sand cardstock, Whisper White, Vellum.

Stamps: Petal Palette.         Dies: Petals and More Thinlits, Layering Oval Thinlits, Stitched Labels Thinlits.

THE PROCESS

Choosing the photo was the easy part but working out how to put it together took a little time.  I first went through some scrapbooking page ideas I had pinned on Pinterest.  I also looked at some ideas I saved to my computer and in some magazines.  I wanted to use some of the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! paper in some way.  I had thought in strips.  I tried a few sheets of paper that I had to see what worked.  I found that this piece looked the best against the black and white photo.  I thought I might cut it in strips with some other prints from the Nature’s Poem pack but I liked this piece left as it was.

I narrowed down the stamps and the dies to the Petal Palette set and cut a few pieces from the Petals and More Thinlits and the Stitched Labels Framelits.  I played around with the positioning and then added the sentiment.  I have to say it was a fun process putting the page together and I was happy with the way it turned out.

Now don’t hold your breathe for me to scrap another page in a hurry.  😉

A FAMILY HOLIDAY PAGE!

Just a quick post for you.  I really, really should be going to bed RIGHT NOW!!! It was an early start this morning to go to Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! ‘My Digital Studio’ training day.  It was a lot of fun but I have been staring at a computer screen all day.  When I got home tonight though I was really inspired and wanted to create something.  I have been following along with Heather Summers My Digital Studio videos so I thought I would try this technique out.  This is not something we did today but it was fun to try this out.

This is a special family photo taken of our holiday to Hawaii last September.  This technique creates an overlapping of the photos.

Hope you like it!!
