Historical buildings scrapbook layout

As the name implies, this collection is perfect for weddings and love themed photos.  BUT, it is so much more than that!  The rich colours of the plainer prints work with so many other photo themes.  As usual, I try to show how you can step a collection out of its box and use it with any photos.

Today I am sharing a layout featuring photos of historic buildings in the Perth CBD.  We took a mini break in our own town for our anniversary this year.  Walking the streets near our hotel and looking at things as a tourist would reminded us of the rich history we have right on our doorstep.

This is a very simple layout made up of 6 strips of paper, each measuring 11 ¾” x 3 7/8”.  I cut these from the left over supplies once I had made up the True Love Standard and Deluxe Workshop Your Way kits.

This cute wreath and camera from the True Love Complements provide a focal point for the layout in lieu of a fancy title.  It was so quick and easy!

You will notice all the embellishments feature journaling! These cut apart sheet banners were perfect to tell a little about each building. Mounting them on a scrap of contrasting paper helps draw the eye to the story.

My darling mum turns 90 in a couple of weeks so I decided to make a banner for her room at the Aged Care Residence where she lives.  I’ve used the colours from the True Love Collection because I plan to scrapbook photos of the day using it – I may even organise an outfit to match too!

The banner is simple in design.
