One of the many things that I like about scrapbooking is that every moment captured in a photograph is a scrapbook page opportunity… at least that is the way I look at it. My sons are young men now, and from each of them I have pictures that I love when they were kids, so since I don’t work on my pages in a chronological order, it doesn’t really matter if I’m using an old or new picture to create a page. Any picture that I choose and make into a scrapbook page makes me remember about it, and makes me smile again.
Today I am sharing a page that I created a few weeks ago, using Fun Stampers Journey products along with one fabulous sketch by the talented Laura Whitaker. I had a lot of fun creating this page, specially because I had the chance to use many great products like the No-Prob-llama stamp set, which I thought it was just perfect for my son’s picture riding a llama:
I have to confess that I am not a fast scrapbooker, so that is why sometimes I like to rely on pre-design sketches. They save me time, but still have the freedom to play with balancing colors, textures and images. Anyways, to create all those layers I used the Lots of Dots die to make the long Candy Apple banner, along with one of the papers from the Birthday Pop Printed papers. I also chose other cardstock colors that coordinate with my picture and colorful dots paper.
As for the title I used the Solid Bet stamp set and the Outline Bet die set . I completed the title with the Sunshine Alphabet stickers. The Notebook Page die that I put behind the title is one of my favorite dies, because it is very versatile! Anyhow, I also stamped a sentiment over a piece of Candy Apple cardstock strip, and I added some other embellishments like the text bubble, a wooden heart and a couple of paper clips (glasses and note).
For the top and bottom parts of the page I added a border from the Borders Details die set. To complete my page I also included the super cute llama image from the No-Prob-llama stamp set, and some Sweet Candy drops here and there. I think the final touches of every project I make are always the most fun ones!
