TheStitched Shapes Framelits Dies are BACK! If
you’ve been waiting for them, please get your order in as soon as possible. I
doubt if they will sell out again, but just in case!
is a first for me today here on my blog – scrapbooking! I don’t
normally do this and have only dabbled in the past. But now my daughter is engaged to be married to a really wonderful man, I just had to! I thought it’d make a
change from an engagement card and I could get this framed for them.
I started with a 12”x12” sheet of Sahara Sand Cardstock (CS),
with a layer of Very Vanilla CS, and a top layer of a design from the Falling
in Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) that’s available in the new Spring
catalogue. I adhered the top two layers together using Tombow. Then I took
two pieces of the Very Vanilla ¼” Satin Ribbon
and two pieces of the Very Vanilla ½” Lace Trim; they were all about 14” long. I
applied small amounts of SNAIL along one side and and adhered them together. I wanted the Lace Trim to be on top although I’ve found you can
put these two layers together either way and it looks lovely both ways.
put SNAIL all along the back of the Satin Ribbon and then adhered the strips, one at
the top and one at the bottom and then I used Fast Fuse to adhere
the ends on the back. When I was happy that it was all adhered properly and straight, I adhered the whole
layer to the sheet os Sahara Sand CS. I used Tombow and made sure I added a bit
more on the ribbon ends as extra security
to stop the ribbon from going walkabouts!
made a copy of days earlier. Using Very Vanilla CS,
I die cut two flowers and centres using the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. I
adhered them together and then adhered each of them onto the fabulous new
Lace Doilies – Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other! In the
centre of each flower, I adhered one of the Falling in
Love Embellishments – Tombow is amazing!.
around with the layout. Long story, short! I settled on the three photographs I
thought looked best and rounded the corners
using my Project Life Corner Rounder. I kept everything in place while I started to adhere everything to my page. The
first were the flower doilies, and next
were the photographs, together with the plain Lace Doilies that I wanted under them. I adhered Vicki’s photograph with Dimensionals and the next two
freshly re-inked Sahara Sand Ink Pad, together with the fabulous Brushwork Alphabet
Stamp Set. I added six Rhinestones to represent the fabulouse solitaire diamond
ring Vicki is now wearing on her left hand.
If you’re a scrapbooker, I’d be pleased to hear your feedback, if I’ve omitted soomething, or if I’ve made any scrapbooking mistakes. Please be honest with me, but kind! LOL!
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting!

While I have made some attempts at Scrapbooking, I do not profess to be a real "Scrapper" but if my comments count for anything, I think you've made a brilliant start with this page, Jan! I'm sure that Vicki and Leigh will be duly impressed too! Really lovely!! Maybe this is the beginning of a new focus for you too? (just wondering is all)
Hi, Geraldine. No way! As much as I enjoyed creating this project, I'm not a scrapper! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
I love it! At least you have done something! I'm thinking my grandson will graduate from high school before I get his scrapbook started. 🙁 Thanks for sharing this with us!
Hi, CHerie. LOL! Maybe this will act as a bit of inspiration for you? ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

I think you have done a beautiful Job. some people have far too much on the page which takes away from the photos. less is more. they look so happy. cheers
Hi, Pearl. I suppose it isn't very different from card making really! Just a much bigger area to think about! LOL! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
