Lets Get Away

August 14, 2021

Ron and I were lucky enough to be able to have a week’s holiday with my Mum and Dad before our latest lockdown. We had three days at Hervey Bay and 3 days at Tin Can Bay. So lovely! Today’s pages show off the first couple of days of our break away. I cut one long edge of a piece of Early Espresso card using the largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies. I used a smaller top plate so that I could cut the whole edge without cutting any corners.

I attached the Early Espresso card behind one long edge of Crumb Cake card before attaching the panels to Basic White 12″ x 12″ pages. I cut narrow strips of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and attached them to the page above the Crumb Cake card.

I attached the pictures to the pages and added journalling which I printed onto Basic White card. I cut the title from Basic White card using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I stamped two small and one large sailing boats from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the images using the Dark Balmy Blue, Dark Smoky Slate and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the sailing ships with the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Dies before attaching them to the pages.

Simple but you know that’s my style! I hope that you are getting around to memory keeping in whatever form you love. I am especially grateful to document this time spent with my parents as they are both getting along in years and Mum’s memory is failing her very quickly.

Bye for now,
