Husbands beware…

Standard

It’s hard to believe, but Mike volunteered to be locked in the stocks!  The lady tour guide at the Round House and I had a really good laugh about that.  Lucky for him we had a lunch date planned so I agreed to his freedom.

This layout is copied directly from the Magic How To Book. (9040) You will find all the measurements and instructions on page 62.  The letters for the title were cut from an extra photo I had.  It was a close up of the limestone walls.  The papers and stamps used come from the Timberline Workshop on the Go pack.(G1070)  I have used this stamp set over and over in my album – it’s a firm favourite.

Fishing

Standard

My husband only goes fishing once or twice a year.  This trip was ocean fishing with a group of industry colleagues.  He only caught the one fish but enjoyed his time on the boat.  The rows of reels caught his photographer’s eye as did the jetty boards. 8x4 Blog double page photos - Page 005 I used Timberline papers with Indian Corn Blue cardstock for this layout.  The design was super simple so it was a quick page to make.  When I scrapbook photos of Mike’s adventures I try to honour his belief that pages should be classic and moderately embellished, allowing the photos to pop off the page. 6x4 Facebook posts - Page 005 I had fun creating the title as one decorative element on the page.  The large letters were cut using my Cricut and then inked with a dauber.  Adding the longer words in Tiny Type Epoxy Alphabet meant the element wasn’t too large on the page.

I couldn’t resit using this stamp from the Catch You Later stamp set (D1580)

inking

To soften the edges of the printed paper and make it look a bit like water, I used a simple technique of swiping the edge of the ink pad from a couple of centimetres inside the paper toward the edge.  You can be quite haphazard with this technique, the more irregular your inking the better it looks!  Swipe all in one direction or cross hatch for a different look.

Love Ewe

Standard

We stayed at a B&B on a farm just out of Narrogin last year.  The cottage we were in was an original building and was quite lovely.  Today’s page features some orphaned lambs that were in the paddock next to our accommodation and shots of the farm.

Love Ewe

My sister actually created this page using my photos. Isn’t she so very kind?  I love this layout.  She based it on ‘Magician’s Choice”, p116 of the Magic How To Book.  Can you spot how much cleverness went in to these pages????

  • Washi Tape over patterned papers – I’ve never thought to do that
  • Sanding around the orange hearts – doesn’t it give a lovely soft edge to them?
  • Using the KISS technique to stamp the floral hearts – such a subtle pattern.
  •  The stitching around the lighter border is actually stamped.  The Stitch Wonder Stamp set (C1564) has some gorgeous stich patterns.  Click here to see them all.

The papers are from the Timberline collection – perfect for our Australian landscape. We’ll have lots more Timberline pages on display at National Scrapbook Day on the 17th.  Registrations close this Saturday!

Happy Scrappin’,
