Everyday Snapshots …

Hello Stampers and Scrappers ~

Just a quick post today to share a page that I did with my Stamp-n-Scrap club.  We meet once a month and create one 12 x 12 page and a card!  The focus is generally on techniques and / or layouts.

I have to give a nod out to “Mary Fish” who’s design I cased (right center) to create this page!  Thank you Mary.

I love to create layouts that can be used over and over again… but with the addition of the photos (most important part) and some embellishments, they never look the same.

Punches are a great tool when embellishing your scrapbook page or a card.  Then top it off with a pearl or rhinestone!

Hope you enjoyed today’s quick post.  Let me know what you think.

Happy Stampin’

Hello everyone ~

Todays post is a scrapbook page that I did at my local Historical Society. We had a wonderful time, and I had my first gentleman scapper in a class! That means I made “history” too! lol

When working with historical photos or any photos for that matter, photos should always be the focal point (not the accessories)!

The page was created to “highlight” the photos … when working with historical photos or any photos for that matter, that you want to stand out on your page. Photos should always be the focal point (not the accessories!)

I did research to add to my page (journaling) which will brings the photos to life!  Journaling gives your page a “story” and helps future generations understand photos you are sharing.

Even though I kept the page very simple (as life was back in the early 1900’s) I added subtle techniques to help “age” and create a warm feel for the page.
