Stickers and Twine!

Who's love stickers? who has twine?

I do!

Picking up the coordinating sticker sheet along pretty pattern papers go hand in hand for me.  I also like to pop up stickers for added dimension.  The downside is that sometimes the sticker dips down in the area where you don't have foam adhesive.

No problem, some twine to the rescue!  Place your foam adhesive first behind the sticker and then use some twine in the areas around the foam adhesive.  Easy peasy!  This little trick came in handy when I wanted to pop up this pretty cursive word.




Some of you may recognize the background of this layout, it is one of the pages from my Family Layouts class I taught a few weeks ago at Markham Crop and Create using Simple Stories papers.




The couple in the photo are my parents from their wedding 50 years ago, I love how the photo fits perfectly with the page's theme.

March PageMaps!

March greetings!  It's a new month and new PageMaps sketches are here!  This month Fancy Pants designers teamed up with PageMaps and you can check out all their beautiful inspiration here.

I chose to use this vertical 8.5 x11 sketch.  I think I've mentioned this before, I am enjoying scrapbooking with this smaller format and I don't think I am giving up too much creative canvas space at all so if you are on the fence I say try it!


Anna recently achieved a new karate belt level, purple! you might have guessed that from the colour scheme of the page.  At every belt level, there are 2 photos that capture the moment, the time she receives her certificate and a photo of her and her Sensai.  I have these same photos of her at every belt level so when I saw this 2 photo sketch I knew it would be perfect!  

I shrunk her certificate down to 30% size and essentially that was my journaling done!
