Hi Creative Friends,
Gwen with you on the blog today with a new share using my very first Travelers Notebook cut file! I’ve made a stack of these for the TN peeps out there, (you can shop them here) and always said, these are great for scrapbooking too and today I thought I’d show you! This photo was taken at my wedding 18 years ago and from memory is the 2nd or 3rd wedding photo I’ve scrapbooked.
I started with the ‘TN Together Documented‘ cut file and resized it quite large knowing I was working with a 6×4 photo. I’ve backed the design with pretty paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘Midnight‘ Collection, it really is beautiful for Wedding photos. I went with a darker paper to fill the hearts in the design and something lighter and soft for the letters.
I’ve then backed my photo with just a single mount for this one and stitched around the edge as I normally would. I’ve also added 3D foam behind for added dimension and then decided on the position of the cut file and the photo. I like to nut out this part of the design early so that I have a direction for the page.
Next up, I’ve pulled out some co-ordinating embellishments, most of these from the Die Cut Ephemera pack of the collection as well as my foam Thickers. I decided to add to the ‘Together’ in my cut file to make the title ‘Together Forever’.
I’ve now added in some more floral elements and this cute navy bow. I’ve worked in my usual loose, flowing clusters to help draw the eye around the page and finished it off with this sweet flair from Felicity Jane.
And that was the page done AND as you can see, even though it is a Traveler’s Notebook design as such, it is also perfect for layouts. The rectangle format would also work super well with the 9 1/2 x 11 size, so if you love those, the TN designs are for you!
Thanks for popping by today,
Until next time,
