Yay I got time to get back into some scrapbooking and this year I want to focus more on my scrapbooking. I have some things in the pipeline for that so watch this space!
This months scrapbooking challenge was from me as I often have a yearly in review LO that is all about our previous year. I may have scrapped many of the events already, but this puts it all on one LO. Mostly its about the journaling but for this LO, I decided I wanted lots of photos.
This paper is our new Saleabration paper called Sycamore street and will be available on the 22nd January for free with a qualifying order of $120.
I got 6 of 4×6 photos printed at Harvey Normans. I got my photos printed using the 6 up function on the photo kiosks. I then cut them up and put them onto a 7.5 inch square. I did trim them down a little (i took 1/16 off 2 sides of each photo). Next, I matted that onto a 8 inch square Crumb Cake piece of CS and embellished with some stamps and punches. I then popped it in a 8×8 page protector (which is slightly more than 8×8). On the main LO, I cut a large square of paper and attached it to the CC base and then I printed out my journaling and attached that to a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 inch Tangerine tango piece. I wanted the 8×8 photo mat in the age protector to be on the outside of the 12 x12 page protector and I get annoyed at having to get the LO out of the page protector to see any hidden journaling..so this is how I did that.
I worked out where the centre of my Layout was and put a mark with a pencil where the 8×8 page was going to go. I then fed my 12 x 12 over my rubber self healing mat and cut the slit where the page protector hinge would feed through. (I put some sticky strip on that hinge flap bottom). I then added my journaling mat over the top (mark out where that goes with a pencil too). This covered up the 8×8 protector hinge.
Finally I added some embellishments. Note that you wont be able to take this LO out of the page protector afterwards. But I found it easy enough to add embellishments after anyway. The 2012 and button are on the outside of the page protector ..stuck down well with tombow!
I hope this inspires you to play along with our challenge this month!
