Layout 15: Jean & Keith


Back again with some more Sale-A Bration inspiration - this time some scrapbooking.  I have used the Bliss set again, but this time I have used the adorable little flower image.  My layout is about my paternal grandparents.

Love the Basic Black and Very Vanilla with a few splashes of Riding Hood Red!

I'm not sure when a lot of these photos were taken, they were chosen as I loved each photo.  My Grandma looks like a movie star and my Grandfather fought in the RAAF during WW2.

It was a bit hard to juggle the odd sized photos.  I would have preferred to arrange them in a more chronological manner, but I just couldn't get it to look right on the DSP.  I finally settled for what you see.

I couldn't believe it when I placed the stamped and fussy cut Bliss flower images amongst the flourish on the Love Letter DSP.  The flowers in each are a perfect match!  It was a very happy coincidence as I had chosen the DSP and stamp set without noticing they were a match.

I also used my colour spritzer and Basic Black marker on the journalling boxes to give them a more vintage feel.

Stamps: Bliss
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black Marker
DSP/Cardstock: Love Letter DSP, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Other: Big Shot, Timeless Type Alphabet Dies, Paper Snips, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Colour Spritzer

Catch you later,
