A Scrapbook Page

craft 034

A page for my ‘52 walks’ album 2010.  This is my favourite page so far!  I love the muted colours of the paper and the design – thanks Shimelle, it’s one of yours!


  • I started this page with a selection of photos, background cardstock and then chose the sketch.  As it is a 2 photo sketch I discarded 1 other photo, which will not be forgotten, it will go in the 6 x 4 pockets on the facing page.
  • Next I sorted through my pile of patterned paper which are ‘leftovers’ from my Cocoa Daisy kits, and chose 2 pieces.  Sorry I can’t remember which manufacturer they are, maybe Crate Paper?
  • I chose the pink Thickers  (foam letter stickers) for the title.  I have loads of ‘part’ sets of alphabet stickers left, most of them without the letter ‘e’ now!  So this ‘e’ is made from a ‘c’ and a hyphenSmile.  Originally the title was just ‘Beach’, but I thought it looked better balanced with ‘walk’ added down the bottom.
  • The red and yellow flower is included in the sketch, and I was considering adding more flowers across the top.  Playing around with them, I realised how well they go with the paper and added them down the side.
  • Journalling reads ‘Down West Avenue, south towards the sea.  Through marine gardens.  The gardens are looking good this time of year – I love the red crocosmia!  Along the sand at low tide, Merlin running about with glee!

Great page Linda! I love your added comments - great tip about the letters turning the "c" to an "e". I also love the flowers you added to the pattern paper. That looks great. :)
