World of Good Scrapbook Page

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.

Just a Little Copper…

Hi Everyone?

How are you all today? We’ve finally got some rain here in Yorkshire, its coming down quite heavy so I might need a boat by school pick up time. Today’s card is just a quick one to show you how a little copper can turn one of the Memories and More cards into something beautiful.

This background card came from the Colour Theory Memories and More pack which is perfect for creating projects around the different seasons. This was one of my favourite cards as I just loved the leaf outlines on it. To make it extra special I added a few more leaves from the Colourful Seasons stamp set and embossed with copper embossing powder .

I also added one of the fabulous greetings to the card as well and did a bit more embossing. I love the sentiments in this set and bought it more for them than the images, although I’m also a sucker for snowflakes.

To finish the card off I added a length of copper trim down the side for some extra copper and mounted onto a Crushed Curry card base. Beautiful. quick and easy I love this card.

I’m really looking forward to using the Memories and More cards on some scrapbooking projects….I just need to print some photos so watch for those coming soon.

Happy Crafting
