Someone once asked me if scrapbooking comes easy for me. Like anything I think sometimes yes and sometimes no, and this week it didn't. It's Technique week at Hand Stamped Sentiments:
I really wanted to find something I could incorporate on a scrap page so I went digging on Splitcoaststampers. I found this Diagonal Double Pocket Card that I thought would be perfect for a journaling spot. Here is my page:
I started with a (OLD...like really old) retired DSP. It kind of reminded me of old wallpaper. I added Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake and then layered on my photo and pocket spot. I LOVE this pocket, it really let me journal my thoughts of how lucky I think my girls are to have a photo like this. I used the argyle embossing folder as I thought it worked off her afghan, which I also pulled the colors from. I got stuck on the title placement, the 4 is cut from my electronic die cutting system. :(
Again, I have to remember some you love, and some you just think at least it's not stuck in a box. I'm so excited to see the creations of the design team, make sure you hop over and check them out!
