Spalding Scrapbook Club - No 3

......... just to put up the details of the third page for Saturday - I have designed it so that the photo can be placed in later as none of the embellishments restrict it in any way.

The colours are Bashful Blue and Black so it lends itself to an old black and white photograph and my tiny tags say Mr & Mrs and Love so a wedding, anniversary, engagement photo - if that's not possible perhaps an older style portrait  photo of a family member would be perfect and we can just change the tags as appropriate.

And a closer view ....

See you tomorrow - Bridgette

Spalding Scrapbook Club

......... I think my nickname ought to be Bunny - I am the proverbial White Rabbit checking the time and always running late, although I never intentionally start out that way!!

Here are two of the three 6" x  6" pages we will be completing on Saturday. 

The first is one that needs a photo of cakes, cookies, baking with someone special, in fact anything foodie that makes you smile.  The page is Chocolate Chip cardstock and a Real Red designer backing paper with hearts, Real Red satin ribbon and tag using the retired Yummy stamp set ( I know, I don't normally keep stamp sets but this one is special !!) The photo dimensions are 10.5 cms by 7.5 cms, the Top Note diecut tucked behind the photo can be used for journalling or a favourite recipe.

The second page - please forgive the colours, the photograph doesn't do it justice !!!

Using the new Hostess designer papers, Whisper White and Certainly Celery with accent of Wisteria Wonder - four small photos are needed - two of the photographs are able to be lifted and some journalling placed behind - this is then held in position by the central motif.  So yes, this is soft greens and lilacs with a bolder pink accent, once again so sorry for the poor quality photo - it is pretty honestly. 

So perhaps think about a day out or occasion - Spring/Summer - or favourite flowers in the garden - or even family members wearing clothing in the green/purple/pink colourways - or even your pets if they wear pink collars etc.

I will post the remaining page tomorrow and we will also be making a cute keepsake box for the little pieces of memorabilia that we gather - see you at 9.30 am on Saturday - Bridgette x
