Gail did this stunning page with the GCD Fun House collection. The photos of her granddaughter, Paige, were perfect for these papers. Gail used a total of 10 photos on this layout, while still showing off the beautiful detail on the paper. She also did not use any plain cardstock - this double page layout was done using only 3 sheets of patterned paper, embellishments cut by hand and using her big shot and a punch. Alll from the same paper, some pearls and a very old chipboard alphabet given new life with distress ink and stickles! The total page cost R24 in new stock ( the papers) , and she just used what she had in her stash to dress it up. So who says Scrapbooking has to be expensive?
A close up of the dressed up alphabet, rosette and flourish. So, use what you already have. With all the stunning new papers on the market today, we are really moving away from overpriced embellishments, and focusing more on using the papers to the utmost and investing in tools that can enhance your scrapping. Everything used on this layout is available at Scrapbook Studio Jeffreys Bay. Except, that is, for the chipboard alphabet!!! Enjoy your day!
