It's May 1st which means the paper I used on this scrapbook layout is officially retired, but I still wanted to post it anyway. I found taking a photo of a scrapbook page to be rather difficult. I tried to prop it up like I do my cards and it was too heavy to support itself. I ended up putting my long sizzix plates behind it for support. I put it on the balcony like I do when I photography cards. Guess what happened? It crashed to the ground. lol It lodged into a big bush and my husband ended up having to dig it out for me. I finally opened my exterior door and propped it up against it (while still using the plates.) It worked, barely. I think this may be the last scrapbook page I ever post, so enjoy. lol I used My Digital Studio to make things to go on this page. I did my title with a digital stamp and then added text. I did all my long journaling with text. And I did my squares using text that I then digitally stamped an image over. My result was a relatively easy scrapbook layout done the old fashioned way but with new digital elements.
PS - There is a footnote to this story. This was the first time I've ever used my Stampin' Up supplies to make a scrapbooking layout. (Weird, right?) I have been scrapbooking for a much longer time than I've been stamping. And perhaps that is why I keep things separated. I have my crafting space divided with my scrapbooking paper and embellishments in a separate area from my paper crafting and card making supplies. This page is the first time my card supplies have moved to the scrapbooking area, but I suspect now that it's happened, I will start mixing the two more often. Friends who know this will be shocked. lol Thanks for visiting, see you next time!
