Last week in my scrap room ....

Recently I've gone back and scrapped photos from my older daughter's wedding in 2001. That was before digital photography came along and before I started scrapping.

For this layout, I used sketch #202 from the Sketches in Thyme blog. My embossed and cut out circle behind the photos is difficult to see in this photo. The papers arew from the "Epiphany" line by Prima, which I had been hoarding.

For this layout, I used  sketch #294 from Creative Scrappers (it was the second time I had used that particular sketch; love it!) and the Belle Vie paper collection by Julie Nutting for Photoplay Paper Company. The bling swirl was in my stash; I cut the roses with a Spellbinders die and the title with my Silhouette Cameo.

The next two layouts were quick and fun ones starring our furbabies. Both use sketches and kits from Citrus Twist Kits. The first layout uses the June 5 sketch fron the Citrus Twist blog and the June "Capri" main kit, embellishment and paper add on.

The second uses the June 12 sketch and the May "Beach Glass" main kit and add ons. I played with a mini stencil by Tim Holtz and acrylic paints from Claudine Helmuth. It was fun, quick and easy!

Thanks for looking; have a great day!

Re-scrapping older photos

Thursday, June 2 was my oldest daughter's 15th wedding anniversary. When she and her husband married in 2001, digital cameras were just starting to appear. The wedding photographer still shot photos on film, which meant the photos had to be developed through a process, and prints from the photographer were pricey.

When my younger daughter married in 2010, and my younger son in 2015, digital photography was in full stride and I had discovered scrapbooking. I have albums full of layouts I created with photos from both weddings. I also made a few layouts of photos from my oldest girl's wedding, but that was early in my scrapbooking and I wasn't crazy about most of them. So, I have started scrapping new layouts of those photos from 2001. 

For the first layout, I used the May 22 sketch from the Citrus Twist Kits blog along with the May main kit, paper and embellishment add-ons. 

For the second layout, I used the first June sketch from Stuck?! Sketches along with some pretty papers from Belle Vie by Julie Nutting for Photoplay Paper Company. Here's the finished layout:

Thanks for looking. Have a great day!
