two more layouts...

Hi everyone,

I made two more layouts with old family photo's last week.
I really want to document as many of these old family photo's as possible.
I'm kind of doing it project life style, with the divided page protectors.
But, I will also include some 12x12 scrapbook pages too.

Here are the two layouts.

I hope you like them.
I really enjoyed making these.

old family photo's.....

Hi everyone!

Last week I made up two project life pocket pages using old family photo's.
I had a lot of fun making these.

The papers are all from Stampin' Up!
Most are from the This and That DSP collection, and some are from Etcetera DSP collection.
These two collections work quite well together.

I used dies to cut out many of the embellishments for the bits of papers left.
The circle card thinlit die from stampin' Up! had many little dies in this kit.
I used the heart, the xoxo, the star, the label, the chevrons.
I also used the Chalk Talk Framelit dies from Stampin' Up!
I used Spellbinders circle nestabilities dies, the classic scallop circle dies and the lacy ovals.
I used some of the dies in the My FavoriteThings Blueprint #4 die set,
and Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die.

The metal butterflies are from Recollections.
The stamps are Swallowtail (SU), Fresh Vintage (SU- retired), Cute by the inch (SU-retired)
 and Word Bubbles by Hero Arts.
I used versamark and white embossing powder,
and for ink pads - Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede from Stampin' Up!
I used various washi tapes from Stampin' Up!.
I used stickers from a retired Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking kit I had got.
Can't remember the name of it.
I also added some gold and silver sequins.
They really add lots of sparkle.

I love these pages.
I know it looks like I used lots of stuff to make these.
But, It was all stuff that I had on hand.
I didn't have premade 3x4 and 4x6 cards.
I just used leftover double sided scrapbooking paper.
This is a great way to use it up, so that it doesn't sit forever in your scrap bins.

I hope you like them.
