I’ve had a lovely weekend so far – warm weather, sleeping in and a day of scrapbooking. Bliss!
I wanted to share with you a couple of layouts – one I did yesterday and one from a few weeks ago. They both use papers from American Crafts that I’ve kept aside in a stack for ages. I’ve been too hesitant to use such pretty papers and waiting for something special to use them for because I just love them! I realise that’s absolutely ridiculous – it’s like buying an amazing car and keeping it parked in the garage! Am I alone here??
So a couple of weeks ago I decided to approach my scrapbooking with the papers first, photo second strategy (usually I decide which photos to scrap and then choose the papers accordingly) and funnily both layouts are photos from our holiday in Spain last summer.
Papers: American Crafts Letterbox Papers in See You, Adieu and Greetings
Letters: American Crafts Poolside Vinyl Thickers Journalling sprouts by Jillibean Soup
Supplies:Cardstock: Papermania Papers: American Crafts Letterbox Papers in See You (I used the lemon coloured reverse side), Sir and Adieu (I used the seafoam coloured reverse side) Letters: American Crafts Lullabye Foam Thickers in Charcoal
I’m wondering, do you pick papers or photos first when you scrapbook?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
