I found these ones in a box of 12 x 12 layouts so they havn’t seen the light of day for a while. Instead of the normal doubles, these are all individual pages but they could easily be made into doubles.
Very simple but nice additions to my album.
This time I used one of my stamps, versamark ink and gold embossing powder to make a continuous background across the two pages.
I thought this double could be used perhaps for photos of a night out with friends for Chinese.
The Glinka leaves are from a very old wooden stamp I found in a box.
Thanks for looking. x
and as those of you who come to class know, I often try to make at least one layout using white as my background.
I have loads (and loads and loads……) of stamps, in fact they are my passion, and I don’t get to use enough of them.
For these two single layouts I made the backgrounds using stamps and masks and then chose bold papers to finish them off. You only need a few scraps of paper so if you are hoarding small pieces of that special paper, this is a great way to use it yp.
I am really into Lime green this year so this was a good choice for me.
Don’t forget, if you are adding a tag pocket, use foam pads or tape to lift the pocket slightly. That way the tag will slide in and out smoothly.
I promise I will try to add pages to this blog more frequently now that I am back in the crafting world again. Hugs xx
even on 8 x 8 pages as we all found out last Saturday afternoon. We all have loads of material, if not new, then old clothes that no longer fit or perhaps something special that evokes a special memory and that we can’t bear to throw away.
Using the fabric as part of your scrapbook page is a great way of keeping that memory where just the slightest touch of the fabric brings back the past.
Here are a few 8 x 8 layouts I made for the class. They aren’t hard but as everyone found out, very time consuming or as I like to say “Pleasurable”
Here are some closeups
More tomorrow. xxx
Using this lovely Sizzix die helped make this page however always bear in mind that one of two thicker embellishments will work but add too many and your album won’t shut when you add your pages.
The scallop edge is one of my favourite punches. Pity I can’t find it under all my craft stuff. Note to Self – must tidy up.
