I’ve decided that one my main goals this year is to scrap 150 pages….. I know, it does sound like a heap of pages, but I think with a bit of determination & planning it is achieveable. When you break it down it is about 2 a week, maybe 3 some weeks, so I should be able to reach it!!!!
Anyhow, on with Scrappy Saturday which is not happening on a Saturday….. Will have to fix that this week!
I took my layout for this sketch from a past mini-catalogue – see they are still good for lots of ideas once they promotion has finished. I’ve also created a sketch for you to have a try.
I decided to pick up the little bit of red in the photo – you can just see it in the dress & the light above Bonnie’s head. The rest of the layout, I kept it with the colours in the photo – black & white.
I printed the little bit of journalling onto Whisper White Cardstock, printed it out & run it through the Bigshot with the Embossing Folder – Framed Tulips. Now this folder I was not too keen on before I used it, so it has sat in my box since my purchasing it. I have completely changed my mind now & you will be seeing a lot more of this folder!!!!
After printing my photo, I kept a small white border before matting it onto Real Red Textured Cardstock
. I stamped my image direct onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock
using Basic Black Ink
. This image was meant to be embossed, but completed forgot about it until I finished the layout. Oh well, next time hey.
I adhered both pieces of Whisper White – stamped image & the journalling piece onto the Real Red Cardstock, cut a small piece of DSP, tore the edges & adhered between the 2 pieces of Whisper White.
I adhered the Ribbon down the middle, tucked the ends under, tied a knot & adhered to Basic Black Textured Cardstock.
I stamped 5 small flowers using the Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 2 in Whisper White, 3 in DSP. These were randomly adhered to the page & Pearls adhered to the middle, as well as to the stamped images.
Another easy layout for you to try.
