Scrapbooking is something I haven’t done for quite a few years as life just seems to get in the way. Now we are all having more time at home I’ve decided to pull out my old photos and relive some old memories while we wait to make some new ones.
I’ve always thought scrapbooking had to be super complicated with many layers of paper and endless embellishments, but the real focus should be on capturing those memories and higlighting the photos.
The Stampin’ Up! Suites make the super easy as everything coordinates making those pages come together easily. I love the patterns in the World of Good Speciality Designer Paper can work for many occassions, this is not a travel photo just a simple garden shot.
The background is a 6″ x 8″ (15.2cm x 20.3cm) piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock on which I stamped the compass stamp in Versamark all over to create a background, alternativley you could use the similar designer paper sheet if you don’t have the Beautiful World stamp set. I mounted my photo with an Early Espresso matt and added a strip of the green world paper to the left hand side of the page.
I use the Tailered Tag punch to cut out three labels and the stamped Adventure Awaits of one of the labels from the World of Good Memories and More pack. I added a compass stick to the top right hand corner with a Misty Moonlight Enamel Dot in the centre just to pull the colour throughout the layout.
This was super simple to create, my only problem now is do I place the page in my album or do I frame it and hang it on the wall.
