Stamp A Memory November Challenge

Hi!

It feels like ages since I've done any scrapping, so I was pleased when it came time to do my submission for Stamp A Memory's November Challenge.  This month we are challenging you to do a double layout.  The subject of the layout can be anything you desire, but it must be a double page layout.


I chose to scrap about my family's recent trip to an event called "A Day Out With Thomas".  Alex loves his Thomas trains, so off we went to the Railway Museum for the afternoon.


When I do a double layout I often like to overlap some elements over the join between the pages.  In the photo above you can see I've used a photo, part of which is on each side of the layout.  It helps the layout flow from one page to the next.


Bunting is quite fashionable on projects at the moment, so I decided to incorporate some into my layout.  I hand cut the flags and used Crystal Effects to glue them to some twine.  I wrapped each end of the twine around a brad and then glued the ends to the page using some more Crystal Effects.  A tip I learned recently (but I can't remember where) was to run a little bead of glue along the twine with your finger and then press the twine to the layout.  I curled the ends of my twine in a loop for a cute little effect.


I found this to be a great method on the twine as you can't see the glue.

I hope you can find time to take part in this month's challenge - I can't wait to see what you scrap!

  1. Love your layout Tina - we both used bunting - all I need to do now is to incorporate a doily and I'll be right with it! LOL
