Present Time Scrapbook page
I’m still trying to finish up my 2011 scrapbook, which means that I’m scrapping Christmas right now. Feels kind of like deja vu. I used this week’s Let’s Scrap sketch for today’s page.
Instead of spreading the circular element across two pages, I wanted to incorporate it all into one page. This is what I came up with.
This page is totally a “use up my stash” type of page. The background Feliz Navidad paper I’ve had in my stash for years. I found it in a local scrapbook store in their sale bin and since I don’t find a lot of scrap supplies in Spanish I bought up a bunch of their sheets. Over the years I’ve used the sheets on cards and other pages. This page was the very last one I had left. The paper I used for the circle is also another one of those lonely left over pieces from who knows what year. I was so excited to finally use these two pieces.
The alphabet tiles I used for the title are also left overs from the Paper Wishes Busy Scrappers Christmas set which brings papers, cut out images and alphabet tiles. The papers are long gone, but the alphabet tiles are still around. I was so pleased by how well the colors matched the papers I used. The little tab and the word fragment that says “presents” are also leftovers from that set. Accenting the title is an adorable little present brad also from Paper Wishes. But my favorite part of all is fitting 8 photos onto this one page, capturing all the fun of Christmas morning opening presents.
Hope you enjoyed!
