Scrapbook Page

Well I am finally back with another blog post.  Sorry it has taken so long but life happens.

Last weekend I went to Rotorua with Paula for stamp camp. We had an awesome time learning new techniques and in my case meeting a lot of new friends.

One of the projects we did (and the one I am most proud of) was a scrapbook page taught to us by Delys Cram who is an amazing crafter.

She showed us how to use the new presto papers that are in the Summer mini where the pattern shows up when you apply ink.


This a photo of my daughter Ellen when she was 12
(she is now 16) and her cat Sooty.
I thought it was a sweet photo to use and I like the way we were shown how to layer the page with the photo and embellishments.

The main colour used was Pear Pizzazz with some Soft Suede ink in the background.  I managed to add a bit of Cherry Cobbler in the little butterfly.



With the use of a bitty button and a pearl among the card stock flowers and butterflies to add interest.

Ellen thought it was cute. (She would have preferred a different colour as she is not to keen on green).

I plan to have a go at another page soon.

  2. Isn't that the most beautiful page! We were so very lucky to have been taught by such a great Scrapbooker as Delys, eh? Hopefully the colour will grow on Ellen :-)
