Hello, hello and happy Friday to you! Almost time for the weekend!! Anyone doing anything extra fun? I have a full weekend planned, but hope to find the time to work on a few scrapbook pages. I am having so much fun scrapping again! My craft room looks like a snow globe that someone shook and shook and shook, but honestly I don't care! I have pictures strewn every where and piles and piles of paper taking over! I have embellishments splayed out all over all of the flat surfaces! My sewing machine is out and my Cricut is plugged in and ready to go! Normally a mess like that would make my left eyebrow twitch, but lately it just feels like a well loved and used work space! Yay...go me!!
Guess what...I have another scrapbook page to share with you today! Surprised?! LOL Probably not, huh? Ok, let's get to it:
Today's page is all about my gorgeous oldest grand kiddo and her gorgeous Mommy! (One of my very sweet daughters-in-law) Aren't these pictures just adorable? I knew as soon as my DIL sent them to me that they would make a super fun page. They were goofing around with some camera filters and these were the result. I just love them!
I wanted a nice feminine Springy looking background so I dug out some flower-y papers and matching embellishments. I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the background with two small flower stamps. I like to add little things like that to fill in some of the empty space. I started by creating a border strip made up of 3 different layers. I used a border punch on the pink and embossed the white strip with polka dots.
I decided that rather than go with a large title that I would stamp a small sentiment and layer it up! I added a butterfly (double layered and held together by a staple!) and used fun foam to raise the whole thing up off the page.
I added some flowers and a couple of doilies. I think doilies make every project feel softer and more delicate.
A few more flowers and another doily!
I matted the photos against a combination of white and different shades of pink and then layered the photos on top of each other. I also drew in some lines on the bottom right for my journaling. Fun pictures, fun page! I cannot wait to get this page into my grand kiddos album!
I also wanted to share a fun tip with you! If you want to use a piece of patterned paper that you really like as a background piece, but you would like to salvage some of it, you can cut out the center and just use the outside frame! Here is the back of my page. I kept that center for a whole other project.
Here is today's page one more time:
Hope that you will be able to find some time this weekend to get your scrapbook on! It is good for the soul!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I will see you again soon! I have lots more to share with you. Have a great day and happy scrapping!
