The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

An Older Dbl. Page Layout with Stamping

Hello My Blog Buddies
Hoping all is well with you today.  I have put another layout online for you here.  Don't you just love the taupe, purple and olive of this layout?  This is one of my beginner pages I crafted in my earlier days of scrapbooking when I was doing alot of stamping onto my layouts.  For a closeup view, click on the picture.  The large flower on the 2nd page is a stamp that I love and still use. The title on the first page is stamped  from a set of font stamps as well as the sentiment on the 2nd page "Traditions", another font stamp set.  This design is much simpler than what I often create today but when I look back I can see back down the road of my development which leads to the detailing work that I so love to do now.  I can see that I was just beginning to get brave with layering and detailing embellishments on this one. Some of the tools I used was the Cuttlebug and spiral embossing folder.  I used a swirl BossKut die and cut it with the Cuttlebug machine.  For funky wavy paper cuts I love the wavy cutter from Creative Memories.  At one time I used it on almost everything I created.  All the stamps used on this layout are from Close to My Heart which are the stamps I began my stamping madness with. I designed this layout with heritage photos in mind as I could imagine black and white vintage photos in the rectangular photo spots with some journalling beside on the oval mat.  The smaller tag on the 2nd page could be used to identify people in the photo above.  If you have any questions about this layout or you want to put together a group to scrapbook a layout like this one, just email me and let me know your wishes.  Happy Scrapbooking and I'll be back with more crafty creations very soon...
