Snailbeach scrapbooking

One day I will catch up with my scrapbooking…but that day has not yet arrived. But I have managed another layout so I’m up to March! It shouldn’t be too hard to catch up really, I’ve had long quiet times this year due to various reasons, and it’s definitely worth recording all the little fun things – digital files don’t get viewed like albums and scrapbooks do.

These scrap booking pages record a walk that was rained off not long after it started, so we went down a heritage mine instead! It’s a fascinating industrial area in rural Shropshire, and there’s been mining there since at least Roman times.

It was created as two layouts because I used a pair of layout templates, but once they’re in the album the join will be hidden between the pages.The pages were created from templates from Shabby Princess, and the kit is called ‘Wandering’ from Gennifer Bursett at Pixels & Company.

 

 

Iterative scrapbooking

Skegness attempt 1:

I was never really happy with this layout, it looks a lot like the photos were just thrown onto a background picture with some random detailing. I’m so far behind on my scrap-booking, but I’ve still gone back to this one with some new ideas to create a new layout that I’m much happier with. And I have actually done something this weekend!

Brighter, softer and more cheerful. This is one for the album 🙂

birthday

So I had a birthday and went out for dinner, and here’s my scrapbooking layout to prove that I’m now all grown-up and very mature…

I didn’t use any particular kit, just whatever elements I have that seemed to work.

Repton walk with Meetup – scrapbooking

I’m really behind on my scrapbooking…I think going back to a computer based job again has led to less screen time at home, but this weekend I’ve been trying to catch up. Doesn’t make for the best layouts but I suppose I can always review them before getting them printed.

Journalling reads:

I went on a 5 mile walk with Meetup around Repton. It’s a very peaceful area with footpaths bordering fields and winding between hedgerows. It was lovely to get out and enjoy the weather and the countryside. And of course there was cake afterwards 🙂

Stokesay Castle scrapbook page

I’m slowly catching up on my scrapbooking… The main kit used in this layout is called ‘Montage’.

I went on a family day out to Stokesay Castle on Mother’s day, it was freezing but beautiful. Stokesay Castle is a late 13th century fortified manor house near Ludlow in Shropshire, consisting of a wonderful Tudor gatehouse and a mainly stone built hall and tower. I’ve been there before but I enjoyed exploring again and learning more about the castle’s history, it’s had several narrow escapes from destruction, and being on the border was under constant threat of attack by the Welsh!

I need to get better at taking pictures of people, I feel awkward asking and then wish I had more photos…
