Hello from a wet horrible Somerset. I know its the 1st September 2020, but I feel like its winter here, instead of just the end of our summer. Creating this Timeless Tropical Scrapbook page has really brightened my day.
This is something that is very alien to me. I totally struggle with a 12″ x 12″ page. Its a huge space …… and blank when you first get it out. To mean the whole of this page needs to be filled …………… but does it?
I have been lucky enough to travel with Stampin Up and my gorgeous friend Melanie comes with me. Looking at photos of the two of us makes me smile.
DESIGNING YOUR PAGE
I wanted my page to have two photos and to be bright and in holiday colours. Choosing my colours was easy, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Costal Cabanna, Flirty Flamingo and a dash of Calypso Coral. Summer on a piece of 12″ x 12″.
In designing the layout I grabbed a side plate. Placed it off the paper and drew around it lightly in pencil. This gave me a guide to be able to stamp around.
Layering the Timeless Tropical stamps gives a brilliant summery wreath to brighten the page, but to also leave white space. (Which I am told is a good thing)
Timeless Tropical Scrapbook
I firmly believe in getting my photos printed out. If we leave them on our technical devices, they will eventually get lost, and be gone forever. Devices break, get superseded or we end up accidentally deleting them.
I wonder how many photo sticks, or cards you have lying around the house in a box, drawer or cupboard. Perhaps the technology you use now does not allow you to access them. I have recently been helping my Mum with this and also teaching her how to scrapbook.
These timeless Tropical Scrapbook pages are in my Mediterranean Scrapbook and look amazing.
If you would like to learn about scrapbooking and memory keeping then I would love to get together with you, either virtually or in person.
You can see how I have created these pages in my You Tube video at the end of this post.
