My husband tried scrapbooking

2017-01-03 14.28.14.jpg

We had a bit of a laugh with my husband looking through my supplies and thinking of a page to design himself. He had free reign over all my supplies and made that wavy pattern by drawing around washi tape and cutting it out.

He said he had fun and understands why it takes so long to make a page now, but wouldn’t be repeating the process. I love that I have this in my album, as it says more than just a photo of my little man swimming. It’s about my husband appreciating the time that I take making these ‘pretty photo albums’ and he loves the final result.

 

Thanks for reading!

 

2017 – The year to finish the wedding album!

Hello There!

This year I have decided to finally try and finish my wedding album. It’s mostly PL cards with a few 12×12 spaces for a few bigger layouts with my favourite photos from the day. I decided to play along with the sketches from ‘The Love of Pretty Paper‘ Facebook group.

No automatic alt text available.

I tried to stay pretty close to the sketch above. Our wedding colours were pink, gold, grey and cream so wanted to make it as including all of those colours.

The background is a Dear Lizzy paper I think from the Saturday collection, the big flowers and gold are from Maggie Holmes bloom which I’ve had for ages unused. I love the flowers but with a little boy its hard to grab those out so it was amazing to get those used!

I used little pink letters from a studio calico project life kit and lovely gold lettering. Even though it is only a few paces I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous, It’s weird I never had any doubts about getting married, I think it was having everyone’s eyes on us!

I put a lot of gold colour shine spray and some gold washi tape and a cut up project life card for the journalling space. I have a lot of space for journalling in the other side so wasn’t too worried about it being a really tiddy size!

I love using flowers and I tucked a few cut outs feathers from a Kaiser craft line just to add a little more grey into the very pink and gold clusters!

Thanks for reading. Only another … pages till I’m finished!

Christmas recycling

Happy New year! This layout I did a bit of recycling from making my crackers. The leftover diamond shapes I thought I could use so stuck them down into snowflake type patterns. In the photo they look pretty card but in real life they are a very light pearly white. The snowflakes I made so I didn’t waste the glitter cardstock while making my personalised name tags.

I tried to keep quite a neutral colour scheme here just grey and white and included a see through bag I got from a studio calico kit in the background to hold my journalling.

I stamped a little bit in the background to give a more textured look and added on the sparkly snowflakes into my layered photo.

Hope you like it!
