Scrapping her Mother's Life


Sandie shares some of her Mother's life with us using these 2 very beautiful layouts.


 'At the moment I am working on scrapping my Mothers life, this paper collection works perfectly for the photographs I have to work with.  My layout consists of the beautiful paper range called "The Spring Paisley Collection.  I really wanted to use several of the papers in the collection, so opted for the wall-paper look, separated by beautiful, guipure lace.   The paper 'Spring Paisley Collage' was perfect for die-cutting circles to add to the layout, teamed with some gorgeous blooms!  '

"Sweet 16"

'Another layout of my Mother, at the age of 16 wearing her first special occasion dress.  My second layout is based on Green Paisley Toile paper, from the 'Spring Paisley Collection', teamed with matching cardstock.  I built up layers using the various sized lace doilies available from Meg's Garden - sprucing them up with spray of Glimmer Mist, and touch of Distress Inks in various shades - really made them shimmer beautifully.  I used various elements from other papers in the collection to fussy cut elements and add around the edges of the doilies. '

What a wonderful scrapbook this is going to make - it is so important to keep all these old precious photos.  They are critical to keep for future generations. So many of the photos that my sisters & I have are in boxes & we do not know some of the people in them.
Beautifully done Sandie - the flowers, pearls & papers are perfect for the photos
Bye for now
