Christmas Memory Book

I have finally started my memory book, which is for a present to my DH's aunt for christmas. I have only done four pages so far, the papers are all from PM Nostalgia Blue kit which come with a matching scrapbook aswell. I thought I would try and stick with these papers if possible. I have used the following:-
'Children are poor man's riches' this was originally in a christmas card sent out to family, so have used the original folder as a background and highlighted it with some ink, a cricut scroll and faux button and faux frame.
'Parents' - here I have added some contrasting cricut letters with a chipboard accent and some stamping.
'Cheers' - I have matted the photo onto contrasting paper added some ribbon and some faux stitching, and have embossed the chipboard letters with contrasting ink
The last page, I have used some chipboard flowers, inked and embossed, added some ribbon and used a contrasting paper for the background, this one is still without a title and was taken from a sketch which I saw in a current mag! Hope you like my efforts!! I would welcome your comments as I make cards more often than I scrapbook!!


  1. are, but aren't cards just small scrapbook pages to the gifted crafter like yourself? Your DH's aunt is going to LOVE this.

  2. I love doing vintage ...I find blue is one of the colours that works well. The only advice I would give is add names and dates if you can.If you dont want them to detract from the photo, then do a little hidden journalling.I love the fact that you used the original folder with message. This album will be a treasured keepsake for the Auntie. Hope you continue to enjoy doing it
