Happy Day

October 19, 2019

Today’s page again features a photo from the collection that my Dad gave to me.  This one shows my Mum and Dad with his sister and his parents.  It was taken inside the house at Bass Avenue, East Hills, but I do not know when.  I will have to ask my Dad that question.  I also used a sketch challenge on a Facebook page (Scrapbooking Global) I belong to for the layout of my page.  I used a Very Vanilla 12″ x 12″ page and stamped the scripty image from the Very Versailles stamp set onto the top left and bottom right hand corners using Crumb Cake ink.  I also stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set over the top using Old Olive ink.   To give the page a bit of an aged feel I sponged around the edges of the Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink. I cut two pieces of Soft Sea Foam card 2-1/4″ x 6″, two pieces of Pear Pizzazz 2-1/4″ x 6″ and one Old Olive piece the same size.  I embossed each of these pieces using the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  Using the co-ordinating ink I sponged around the edges of each embossed piece and then lightly sponged ink over the embossed pattern before attaching them across the Very Vanilla card.  I attached the photo to Early Espresso card.   I stamped the leafy image from the Very Versailles stamp set onto scrap Very Vanilla card using Old Olive ink.  I fussy cut the leafy images and attached them to the back of the photo before attaching it to the page.   To create the title I cut “happy” and “birthday”  from Early Espresso card using the Well Written Dies.  I trimmed “birthday” so I was left with “day” and attached the title above the embossed panels.  I printed my journaling onto Very Vanilla card, cut it into strips and sponged the edges using Early Esspresso ink before attaching them to the page.

I am really happy with this page, it has a Vintage feel but as the photo is quite dark, I wanted to add a little lightness and I think the embossed panels do just that.  Don’t you?

Bye for now,
