...that has been my scrapping motto for a long time now. That was also one of the motivating forces behind my participation in the 52 Week Project--so I'd have updated pictures for the scrapbooking pages about me. I believe that it is equally important to document my story as it in my family's.
Having said that, I have a layout to share featuring one of the pictures that I took last month. I used a couple of Basically Bare pieces: canvas leaves from the Blossoms & Leaves set and the film strip border from the Paparazzi Set.
I cut the film strip into pieces in order to use a strip as a border on my layout. I set aside the rest to use on another project.
I added crackle accents to the border strip for added interest.
The chipboard "48" was originally black and glittered, but I peeled the top layer off and then embossed using WOW embossing Powder in earthtone honey from the Suzy West collection. I just love the deeply textured look!
I took 2 leaves from the package, folded them in half and stapled close to the fold. I then used WOW’s “Call Me” stamp set to stamp the leaves.
Here’s a close up of one of the canvas leaves and the scalloped border that I stamped and embossed with WOW embossing powder in earth tone honey.
Creating the border was really easy. I pressed the cap of the embossing powder jar into my embossing ink and then stamped on my page as I would using any regular stamp.
I poured earthtone honey over the stamped image, dumped off the excess and heat embossed until completely melted.
That's all for today!! I will have tons of CHA projects to share...soon enough! Have a great day!
