Home Sweet Home | That Old House

And here I am sharing a few more layouts I created for my dear friend.  These layouts are all about significant homes were he or his family have lived.

First this two page LO

I used the Echo Park So Happy Together collection.
Once again I am leaving a journal spot for him to enter it in his own words.  I additionally will be providing him with some vellum strips (dove tail) to place them at the bottom of each house with the year or significant date...

And here a one page layout of a more recent home.

I used the same Echo Park collection, wooden figurines and some crazy stitching.

Hope he likes them (who am I kidding, I hope he loves them!!).

Hi Ted!!!  ( I just shared my blog's address with him.... for the million time!! LOL hope this time he remembers it! : )

Class of '57-'58 Scrapbook LOs

As I shared before in recent posts I have been busy creating layouts for my former assistant and wonderful friend Ted.

Today I have two layouts of his and his wife's graduation pictures.

It was not my intention to create a two page layout, but I decided to create them with matching papers or using the same collection so that they will go together in the scrap book.

For hers I added this rose that I hand cut from a 4x6" card included in the collection to give it a 3D look.  I also added sequins and glitter framing.  The glitter paper is from Recollections and it is a very pretty with very fine glitter like (and I say glitter like because no glitter ends up on you hands or all over the place like with other glittered papers).

 For his I added a strip or edger that I cut from the same glitter paper using Spellbinders edgers on both sides of the center PP.

 The postcard I added and the letters for the titles are also part of the same Simple Stories collection.


Simple Stories Generations collection
Recollections glitter paper
Spellbinders edgeabilies die
Papertrey Ink tag dies (for both tags on her LO)
