With I’ve been trying to get back into scrapbooking for a couple of months now & for some reason the motivation has not been there, so this morning I sat myself down, sorted through a couple of photos & decided that I was going to scrap 2 albums (I know, I don’t do things by halves) for Christmas – 1 for each of my 2 nieces for this year & give them as a Christmas present.
With this “idea” in mind, I decided that it was the perfect time to start using Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Mind you, I have done a couple of these albums over the last few years but non-SU! & just by going what Becky Higgins was doing. I used to make all my own stuff for the albums as I couldn’t get the product here. So much easier when it is all done for you.
With my photo, Project Life Pocket Page, “Everyday Adventure” Card Collections & Accessory Pack, I sat down & started playing with colours & patterns. To begin with, I wanted to pick up the gorgeous colour of Elaina’s hair & found the perfect match from the Card Collections.
With only the 1 photo to pop onto the page, I decided that I would layer the photo onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock prior to layering onto 1 of the pattern cards, punched 3 small flowers using the “Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack” (Retired), popped 3 x small Pearls to the centre of each prior to adhering along the top of photo & popped it into a pocket – Easy!
I then printed “Capturing the” onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, stamped with an image from “Work of Art” in Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight Inks prior to adhering a small Black Stripe Banner from the Accessory Pack over the top. I printed “MOMENTS” onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, cut it into a Banner Shape & popped it over the black stripe banner with a Stampin’ Dimensional prior to popping into a pocket. Another done & dusted!
With the idea forming that I wasn’t going to do the journaling but leave a space for Danielle to it, I printed “January 2015” onto a matching Card & popped it into a pocket – How easy is this?
To complete the page, I popped a matching card into the final pocket! Nothing to it!
Once I had decided on the colours, etc this page took me all of about 10 minutes.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
