8×8 Scrapbook Page, Inspiration from Shop Packaging!

The photograph on this scrapbook page is one I took with my phone in a shop on the sea front in Great Yarmouth (England), when I took my daughter there to visit the Sea Life Centre back in February!  I found the words on the packaging of a charm bracelet rather poignant.

The bracelet was quite pretty, but flimsy and cheap looking close up, but I liked the clours and also felt the sentiment held much more weight!

I used a simple piece of textured pink cardstock, edged and stamped with ink to tone it in, plus a piece of lightly patterned paper from a 6×6 pad and a strip of paper (the bluey green piece) is from my own collection… in fact it is part of a previous newsletter freebie, so you can go get it if you’ve signed up. So technically this is a bit of ‘Hybrid Scrapbooking’!

The bracket shaped journaling block is hand cut from white paper which was then coloured with inks to match it into the layout.

In case you are wondering, the stamps I used on the cardstock are from Basic Grey’s ’Two Scoops’ collection.

  • So true! Everyday we get out of bed we begin a new journey that leads us to many forks in the road. The road we choose and how we choose to follow, creates a chain of events that in turn creates us as a being with the nature and the many people we touch directly or indirectly in our lives. Thanks for sharing your wonderful layouts. You out do yourself each time. I love the buttons, the colors and all the extra little bling.
    Have a beautiful weekend and may your creative adventures bring you pleasure and many wonderful memories.
    Happily Scrapbooking My Memories~S`andra V.
