Hello friends! One of my favorite places to get cut files is from Miss Kate Cuttables. Their designs are creative and fun and I especially love that there's a daily freebie! When I read about their guest design member call, I thought I'd give it a try with a scrapbook layout.
The last time I visited the home I grew up in, I took pictures of my bedroom. I thought it would be fun for my children to see how it looked and a good memory for me. I used elements from the "Treasured Memories" and "Family Memories" MKC files for my pages:
I spent quite a while matching papers to the bedspread my mother has on the beds and found a 2001 floral Anna Griffin paper still in my stash (talk about using up old paper!). Here's my two page layout:
The top border is from the Family Memories MKC and the dress form is from the Silhouette store. I gave myself a small 3x3 journaling block on the left page and double-matted the photos
I added a vellum piece behind the dress form to give it some contrast against the background.
There's also a few pearls on the waist of the dress form and I added some swirls behind the pictures.
This is one of those layouts that I worked on all weekend, little by little. I'd cut something out, come back a few hours later, cut something else, etc. Although scrapbooking your old bedroom isn't the most exciting subject, it's part of my past and I wanted to remember it - a treasured memory for sure!
I'm entering this into the guest design call for the Miss Kate Cuttables blog, which you can read about here.
Thanks for stopping by.
