My first scrapbook page!

After years of card making I decided to use my stamps and die cuts to make some scrapbook pages.  Here is one of the ones I made up in the last couple of weeks.

This one uses die cuts from Heartfelt Creations, as well as an edge punch, and apart from that is very simple and straightforward.

The picture is my hubby and his two sisters when they were little--he doesn't have many childhood photos, and each of them is precious, and this one in particular is one of my favorites.

Products Used on This Project

   HCD 701 Posy Patch Die
   HCD 711 Decorative Dutch Iris Die
   424415 Daisy Fan Martha Stewart Deep Edge Border Punch

   Crop photo, mat, and centre on piece of 12x12 cardstock. Cut white strips of cardstock to go on edge, and punch edges, then add to top and bottom of page. Cut out flowers using die cut, layer and adhere to page. Cut out swirls using die cut and adhere to page, use scissors to trim bits that go over edge of page. Add Dewdrops to decorate as shown.

The last couple of days I've been working with some absolutely gorgeous flowers that will be released next week, part of the Bella Rose collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I'll have a card or two for you (or maybe even another layout!) next Wednesday.  There is a sneak peak available now at the HC Blog if you'd like a preview :-)

Happy crafting!!


  1. AWESOME!!!

    So glad you've joined the world of the scrapping! hehee!

    You did amazing for your first attempt, really love the colours and punches you've used, they really beautifully frame the photograph!

  2. Oh, it is so beautiful. You need to decide, do you want to frame it or will it be going in a book - this will determine the type of embellishments. I'd hate for those beautiful petals to get crinkled in a book.

    The page is stunning!

  3. Oh i love your scrapbook page the colors are beautiful and really liking that border punch.I think you'll be doing more pages LOL

  12. Beautiful layout. Love being able to use my stuff on both cards and scrapbooking. Thanks for the comments. The image for the "M is for Mom" card is actually an alphabet card from October Afternoon. I'm sure your mo will love whatever card you make for her!

  13. Wow, that is very precious. Can you copy the photo for me and email it to me Kris? I would love that photo of SP from when she was young, its really hard to see it here (even just scan it please?)
