Wow, can you believe it?? Finally some scrapbook pages to show off!
Remember my tag I made for the Hambo Hoedown challenge? Well, here it is on my scrapbook page layout! This project took me all afternoon, but I'm so happy to have a story told and recorded.
I was inspired to get these photos out and make these pages after listening to a Paperclipping podcast about the scrapbooking the 80s and by a free (because I participated in their challenge the week before) digi image I received from Hambo Stamps last week.
Don't you love it when inspiration bombards you from every side??
My photos on the 12x12 pages are wallet sized. I scanned in my original photos at Walmart. They did a fabulous job. I got a much better quality than the scan job I did from home.
The two page layout,
8 1/2" x 11" insert, front
8 1/2" x 11" insert, back
All of the stamping was done with Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards. I have them in my stash for a long time and finally got to put them to very good use. I also used a House Mouse stamp, Say Cheese and just cut off the mouse part. The "say cheese" sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's, Say Cheese set. Along with anything coffee themed, I also love photography themed stamps!!
Some behind the scenes photos of this project,
ready to scrap,
busy at work,
the first "R" stamped crooked, so then I just played with the letters to see how they would look as a word. Then decided to pop-dot the letter circles over my goofs!
And here's how they look in my new album that I found at Archiver's back in May. I love the buttercup yellow color. Perfect to hold all my sentimental layouts that I make as I continue to dig through my photo tote.
Thank you for stopping by!
Tomorrow I'll be joining in with the monthly Color Combo Blog Hop
that I've missed for several months!
