I hope you all had a great new year & didn't celebrate too much!!!! I had a very quiet one & didn't even see the new year in!
After some thinking, toing & froing, I have decided to start "Scrappy Saturday" once again. I do realise I am a little late in posting this one. I have been busy doing their wedding invitations.
It has been so long since I did this, that I thought it would be a great way for me to get into my scraping again & who knows may even give you some incentive to start your journey too......
Along with a sketch each Saturday & my take on it, I will be offering some tips, techniques, storage ideas both for albums, photos, etc along the way. Hey, every little bit helps!!!!!!
Again I've used a photo of my niece & her finance.... I have so many lovely photos of their pre-engagement that it just seems a waste not to put them into a lovely album. You will probably be sick of looking at them by the time I am through, but I will try & mix them up a little.
I used Crumb Cake Textured Cardstock for my base, layered a piece of DSP to the top half with a piece of Riding Hood Ribbon across the join.
I matted a piece of DSP onto a piece Garden Green Cardtsock, then to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock before adhering to the Layout.
I decided not to matt the photo, but left a small trim of the photo paper around to make a small edge. In real life, it looks like it has been matted onto Whisper White. It gives a little bit of a different look & also introduces a little white into the layout as Dannii has her white dress.
I cut 2 long thin strips of DSP, adhered them to the layout.
I stamped the images onto Watercolour Paper with Staz-On & using my Aqua Painter, coloured one with Pretty in Pink & Regal Rose, while the other is So Saffron. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds with 2-Way Glue to both centres. These images were cut out & adhered to the page with Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the leaf, I again coloured with my Aqua Painter & Garden Green Ink, before cutting around the image & adhering to the layout with Multipurpose Glue.
The wording is from from stash before Stampin' Up!
While cleaning up, I have come across albums of "Stuff" which I have not used in years, so this will be a great opportunity to use it. You will also be seeing some retired DSP - I thought it a good way to use it up, as I don't use it for classes or workshops.
