Yesterday I shared a scrapbook page I made using Stampin’ Up!s My Digital Studio software (MDS). I am amazed at how quickly you can put together a page or card using MDS. Today, I have a scrapbook page I made the good old fashioned way! I used my papers, inks and tools! It’s always going to be my favorite way to create scrapbooks.
Today’s page is actually made from the same starting sketch as the page I shared yesterday! Look at what a difference the background papers, mat shapes and embellishments make!!!
I used the Sycamore Street Designer Paper from the Sale-A-Bration. The buttons are the free Sycamore Street buttons from the ribbon and button pack. The sentiment, which I LOVE!, is from the Feel Goods stamp set (#129684). My favorite sentiment sets are the ones with inspirational sayings or inspirational works. I want my cards and scrapbook pages to be inspiring!!
I have at least 3 dozen scrapbooks that I’ve made over the last 25 years. They are full of happy family memories of my children growing up. I love pulling them out and peeking back in time! I can’t believe that 6 foot tall young man with the rough whiskery cheeks used to be my soft little boy who loved to snuggle and talk my ear off!
To create my pages, I used a Paper Craft Crew Scrapbook Challenge sketch. This is the one I used to create the pages for today and yesterday. You should participate in this challenge! Get a page or two done and then post your pictures on the Paper Craft Crew page by clicking here!
Here is the sketch I started with…it’s a great one!
Both of my pages are 8 x 8″ pages. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t think to put the Baker’s Twine, the buttons and the strips of paper on my page in quite this way. I love that this sketch allowed me to create pages out of my comfort zone!!!! Sketches take your creativity to a new level because they give you new ideas for your bag of design tricks!
