This is so exciting! I finally managed to put some time aside and return to my most enjoyable hobby of all...SCRAPBOOKING!
If you recall from my last video (My Scrapbooking Journey) I purchased a SMASHbook and decided that I would tweak my scrapbooking platform a bit.
I have the large - Purple SMASHbook, which I found on sale at Michaels and instantly fell in love with. The whole concept of "wrecking" an album for the sake of keeping memories is just my cup of tea! I particularly like the idea that SMASHbooks are supposed to be stuffed with all manner of momentos, pictures, small trinkets etc. with a complete disregard for bulk! Further, they can be super interactive with all sorts of tabs to be pulled, pockets to be opened and flash cards to be read.
So, I went ahead and made this first page, which is actually the front inside cover of the album.
Ta Da! What do you think?
I had a lot of fun reconnecting with some of my old techniques: as you can see (above) I like to play around paper flowers by rolling edges with a pencil. This gives them dimension and added drama!
Overall, I am very pleased with the result. The color scheme was a bit of a stretch for me as I tend to prefer muted tones but maybe this is the sign of a new chapter in my life!
But wait, there is more! I made a video of the entire process from start to finish! So if you want to see how I created this page, just sit back and enjoy (this is a time lapse video!)
Thank you for watching!
