A Scrapbook Page

January 19, 2012

I have been inspired by my friend Vicky to get some scrapbooking done.  Last year for Christmas my girls gave me 10 x 8″ framed photos of my 6 grandchildren (Photos by my very talented daughter Sarah.).  My son-in-law hung them in the loungeroom for me and I loved looking at them each day.  Well this year they gave me new photos of the grandchildren and I wanted to do something with the photos from last year.  Unfortunately there are some marks on them from where they got stuck to the glass and so they are not perfect but they are too gorgeous to simply put away.

This is the first one that I completed of my youngest granddaughter Ava.  I decided to keep the layout simple and just concentrate on the photos.   I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry designer paper from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack and attached a strip of Basic Black cardstock behind it which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I wrapped the designer paper with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon, tied a knot and then attached it to 12″ x 12″ Whisper White card stock.  I matted the photo onto Basic Black card stock and attached it to the page.  I embossed the Oval Designer Frame onto Rich Razzleberry card stock and cut it out.  I used my computer to format the journalling and printed it in Rich Razzleberry to match the card stock and designer paper.  I punched the journalling using the Extra Large Oval Punch, attached it inside the Oval Designer Frame and then to the page.  I cut 3 sets of flowers from Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot and the Floral Fusion sizzlit.  I separated each of the flowers into two pieces and sponged the edges using Rich Razzleberry ink. (If you would like to know how I make my flowers, you can download a free tutorial here.)  I assembled the flowers onto a Rich Razzleberry brad from the Brights Brads and attached them around the Oval Designer Frame.  I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut the butterflies from Rich Razzleberry card stock and attached them to the page.

Ava looks so serious in this photo, however, she is a really happy little girl.  She has changed so much since this photo was taken.  I have completed another 2 pages and will share them with you soon.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Gorgeous layout of your beautiful grand daughter 🙂 if you wipe over the glass of your photo frames with your embossing buddy before you put the photos in they shouldn’t stick to the glass 🙂 Can’t wait to see your next layout. TFS.
