My Kraft It Up challenge layout

I played along with Kraft It Up this month.  I always check out their blog and intend to get a layout done.  This month I actually did!

The May challenge is create a vintage inspired layout on Kraft.

  • I had a black and white photo of my Dad. 
  • I started with the packaging from Prima's alpha stickers.  The colours and design feel vintagy to me with the stitching around the outside and the toned down colours. I tore it in half and used it as a base for my photo matting.

  • And I found some 'almost' vintage scrapbook product.  Remember when those plastic slides were so popular?  They are very easy to cut with scissors so I used one on the edge of my page.  I slid another under the photo on the right hand edge.

April Layouts

Where does the time go?  Three layoutsis all I managed in the month of April. I have groups of photos to scrap, some new, some old, some really old! All sitting on my desk in piles waiting to be put on pages.
This weekend is national scrapbooking day.  Maybe I'll get some time to work on my piles of photos.

I used a Christmas overlay on this page.  The mattes, photo, journal spot and some of the flatter embellishments are under the overlay.  The cluster of flowers, butterflies and chipboard are on top of the overlay.

A double pager. Yay! The black snowflakes are Maya Roads.  I love them and will be using them on future layouts.  There are lots in a package.

So that's it for April.  Maybe I'll get more time in May now that I'm settling into my new job and am not so swamped.
