Scrapbooking - Old photos

Hello Blog Readers

Today I thought I would show you my first ever scrapbook page. Earlier this year  Christine  Emberson ran a class introducing scrapbooking to new comers.  I enjoy my papercraft, making cards, boxes etc but I had never tried scrapbooking.  So, as I have tons of photos, I thought I would try scrapbooking.

Christine was so good explaining how to pick out colours from your pictures, to decorate your page.  Also how to draw the line to the picture/s you want the viewer to see or notice.

I picked some pictures of my three children, which they had taken at school 25 + years ago.

I used a variety of Spellbinder dies, for the flowers, leaves and butterflies.

I was very pleased with my first attempt, I really enjoyed making this and so, I have decided that I must make some more.

Let me know what you think.

Take care x Sally

    1. Thank you Janice, I'm becoming a 'jack of all crafts, master of none' but I do enjoy trying all the different crafts which are out there. x

  3. Hi Sally
    What a great first attempt! I do hope that Christine runs this again as I'd love to have a go too! I love the way the colours work together. Best wishes, Anne O
