I’ve been a busy trying to catch up on my photo albums recently. As I said before, I decided to do Pocket Scrapping for my photos from the beginning of 2011, and I’m well on my way to being up to date with them. I thought I’d share some of the quick pages I’ve been making – this is about documenting photos and stories and less worrying about the art (although they still need to look good!).
A week’s holiday in Queenstown – using a mixture of papers, I printed out the logos of some of the places to add to the journaling.
We got a new BBQ, and as I had a lot of photos I put the title and date down the strip on the side.
Baking with my nephew – these pages are a combination of cream cardstock and rolling pin paper. Then an Imagine If… Felt Gingerbreadman.
When we were in Australia, I visited every scrapbook shop I could find! And I found this Queensland paper, and Caloundra word, so I cut the paper up to fit into the page protector, then found some other papers that co-ordinated with it, and cut the logos out of some brochures I had brought back with us. Then out came one of my many Dymos, and labelled all the pictures (I’ve used my Dymos quite a bit while catching up on my photos).
I love the black and white paper with the pops of red, I coloured white cardstock with Distress Ink Festive Berries, then spritz’n’flick to create a mottled effect, then cut the title and flowers with the Cuttlebug. The flowers are on the outside of the page protectors.
The last one I have to share with you – Omaka Aviation Centre, I used a photo I took as the title for this, and felt it didn’t need a lot of other explanation. For the background I had a great KaiserCraft transparency with old planes, so I put white cardstock behind and used this – I love the look.
Here is a selection of what I’ve been up to, I hope it inspires you some!
