I find that I’m scrapbooking less these days as I often don’t get the time. This week I made an effort and used this photo that has been sat on my desk in the craft room for some time!
I’ve recently picked up the x-cut embossing folder frame in a sale and this page gave me the opportunity to use this too as it was just the right size.
For lucy nothing can be too girly so I’ve tried to keep this remind but not girly. Her favourite colour is blue (mine too!) and a lot of her pages are blue so I tried to go out of my comfort zone a little with this page.
I had the grey swirls already die cut in my draws and also the flowers. But to tone these in I stamped newsprint onto them and inked them all up along with the wooden “daughter” phrase I’d picked up in Canada years back. It’s amazing how long stash can sit there but it always has a use and I kinda know where it’s hiding too.
The grunge board I used to cut the brackets is another little something I picked up in Canada years back too. I love that all of these things find their way into projects and bring back crafting (shopping) memories.
The leaves are from a recent set of stamps I got so I stamped and inked these up. They’re cute! Just like my baby girl! She’s amazing.
