Yearbook - 2017 December

Lots of snow in December meant a lot of photo opportunities and a white Christmas. A little disruptive maybe, but oh so beautiful!

Yearbook - December 2017

Cathy Krenek released her Winterberry Frost Bundle early in January, which was good timing for me to scrap these pictures. There are so many fun elements in the kit too, perfect for scrapping those fun-in-the-snow pictures!

The kit and the Add-Ons are available separately in Cathy's store.

Thank You Cards

Last year I bought one of those little books that consists of a bunch of postcards to colour. One of them featured snowflakes and although I think snowflakes are pretty, I do not like to colour them. So instead I thought I would see how my homemade alcohol inks perform on the paper. It worked really well, but now what do I do with the postcard?

Move it from here to there.
And then from there to here.
Am I the only one who does that?

Eventually I decided to use it for making some Thank You cards for beautiful Christmas gifts received. Very appropriate, I thought, to our White Christmas.

I die-cut snowflakes from the postcard as well as white cardstock to create the inlaid look

The snowflakes cut from the postcard worked well as accent pieces on their own card front.

The background paper is a piece of gift wrap I had from a previous Christmas. I really like the foiled details on it!
A few clear gems in the centers of the snowflakes finished off the cards.

The 'Thank You' stamp is from BoBunny 'Sentiments Stamps'

The Smith Family - Family Photobook

The Smith Family - I think these pictures are just too precious for words! They date from the 1920's and 30's.

Cathy Krenek's "Formal Night" Mini kit was perfect for the page. I did have a problem choosing papers though. I wanted to use them all, which is why I decided to layer them onto the background with just little strips peeping out from beneath each other. One of the big advantages of digital scrapping with and endless supply of papers.

My other great treat with digital kits is that I can use as many elements as I like and that I can resize them. Not to mention the lack of any bulk in spite of the dimension.

I have a bookshelf full of paper scrapped photobooks and am building my collection of digital ones. I must say that the paper ones have a charm, but I could never go back to scrapping all my memories that way.
