2 scrapbooking layouts
I have been busy completing a few scrapping layouts like i promised. These two layouts were inspired by the Impressions magazine. A monthly magazine that Stampin' Up! sends to all demonstrators. It is full of information, tips and project ideas and is just another of the many perks of joining the Stampin' Up! family.
The first pages is of my daughter Alyssa's christening which was held in March. Her dress (as was my son's outfit) was made out of my wedding dress and so that made it extra special. I have used one of my favourite Stampin' Up! stamp sets Baroque Motifs. It is such a classic and timeless set, i love it.
The second page is a fun page of Tyson using the stars set from the Summer Mini Catalogue. I have used textured card stock in both layouts, which i think adds such a great look to the pages.
Scrapbook pages are such an individual thing and everyone has their own flair. But here is a great tip from Stampin' Up!
"Repetition - Using similar elements throughout your page establishes continuity and can tie everything together, eg.using a variety of the same shape, or the same colours for different embellishments. You can even throw in a little contrast in there and still keep the repetition going by using the same size of different shapes, like circles and stars, but using the same colours or pattern, like polka dots."
If you would like more info on what i have used for my scrapping layouts just email me at email@example.com for more details.
