A couple weekends ago, I was looking through a bunch of photos, and am now determined to get back into scrapbooking! I have three boxes full of photos and many photos from this last year that I still need to print off. To get back into making scrapbook pages, I picked out these photos from when our youngest was a week or two old.
To go with the photos, I pulled out the recently retired Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper. I really liked how the soft blue pattern paired with the pinks in the photos. I also used the retired Painted Seasons stamp set and matching dies for the flowers and leaves.
Since Designer Series Paper is usually not as thick as our cardstock, I adhered each sheet to a 12″ x 12″ sheet of Whisper White cardstock. I also cut a strip of Basic Black cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 12″ to use as a mat under the photos.
For the left side page, I added a 4″ x 3-3/4″ photo and a 4″ x 6″ photo to the black cardstock. The black mat is adhered to the page base about 5″ from the top. For the embellishing, I stamped the flowers with Flirty Flamingo ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. All were cut out with the matching dies. The gold glitter piece was punched out with the Decorative Ribbon Boarder Punch. The flowers, leaves, and gold strip were all layered around the top left corner of the photos. The top most flower was added with Dimensionals.
The right side page was assembled in a similar fashion. All three photos are 4″ x 3-3/4″ and spaced along the black cardstock. The flowers, leaves, and gold strip were all layered around the bottom of the middle and right photos.
To add a page title, I stamped “Sisters” using the Make A Difference stamp set and Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cardstock. I punched the word out with the Pretty Label Punch. After punching it, I decided to trim off the top and bottom rounded portion. An easier way to achieve this look would be to start with a 1″ or so strip of cardstock and punch it by centering the strip within the punch.
You can use the template below to make a scrapbook page similar to mine. Switch up the colors, Designer Series Paper, and embellishments to make it work with your photos.
It was so fun making a scrapbook page again! I used to scrapbook a lot in high school and into college, but haven’t done any since before our youngest was born. Do you use your paper crafting supplies to scrapbook?
