I did a Scrapbook of our photos just after we got married 5 years ago and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to do a sepia one too but haven't had chance to get round to it until lately. I'm not just doing one though, I'm doing two! I've decided to do both a digital one and a physical one so I've got two pages to show you. Both are 12 x 12. This first one is the digital one.
The brown bp is from the polished stone earth tones collection, and the other papers and most of the elements are from the Cream Dream kit and I've used both frames from the gold frames 2 sheet, overlaying the smooth one on top of the textured one. (All from Crafty Ann's)
This second one is the physical one. I wanted to use the elements from the digital layout but don't have an A3 printer to be able to do the whole page as it stood. (There's one on my wishlist, but it may be there for some time yet!) I could have done it as an 8x8 but hubby has specifically asked me for a 12 x 12 album so I had to change it slightly. I'm not disappointed though and I love the result.
I've had a fair bit of scrapbooking stuff put away for ages because I wasn't in a position to use it for quite a while and when I went in search of the album I bought about 4 years ago, I found a treasure trove that I'd forgotten about - talk about a kid in a sweetshop!! Oooh! I did have a great time re-discovering it all! My base sheet is from a collection of hand made papers that I'd bought specifically for this project and forgotten about. As you can see, I printed off various elements from the digital page and cut them out for this page and added some embellishments from my stash. The flourishes are a Marianne's die and the lacy strip on the brown bp is a 10" rubber stamp and halo gold ep.
The stamp is a cube with 4 different lace designs on it that I've had for years and unfortunately it doesn't have a company name on it.
I've really enjoyed making this hybrid page, and look forward to making more.
