I really enjoy every time I get to scrapbook one of my old pictures, because many memories come to my mind. I love that each picture traps a moment and makes you remember about it. Today I am sharing an 8″x 8″ scrapbook page that I made using several fabulous products from the new Lumberjack Collection by Richard Garay.
The picture that I chose is one that I took with my camera and a tripod of my husband and myself. This is kind of a selfie in the 80’s 😀 With this in mind, I printed out the picture in black and white with a cream filter. Which made the grey tones look a bit yellowish, in order to make the picture look old. I know, it is old anyway (sigh).
For this page, I used a sketch by Laura Whitaker that you can find by >>>clicking here<<<. I wanted to use the Lumberjack Bromance Printed 6″ x 6″ Paper pad to create my page, so I coordinated them with some Fun Stampers Journey card stock colors.
I created the texture using the Knitted Pattern Embossing Folder and FSJ Raspberry Berry card stock. I did one half first and then, the other half. I didn’t worry about where the two textures joined because I kew that part was going to be covered with the other elements.
Then, I trimmed it into a 7.5″ x 7.5″ panel. I also matted it with FSJ Rock Candy card stock and I added stitches along the edge. The three stripes behind the picture were made from Bromance Printed papers (1.5″ x 6″) as well as the picture mat.
No journaling this time, just a a simple title that I made with my electronic cutting machine and textured card stock, a complementary word with my Dymo label buddy, and some stickers to record the year when that picture was taken. I adhered some clear gemstones as the final touches for this page.
I have a pile of favorite pictures still waiting to be put on a scrapbook page, and I wish I could dedicate a little bit more of my time to scrapbook more often, because I really enjoy doing this.
