I am on a mission to use paper kits that I have had for years. I know as a crafter, I'm also a hoarder. I'm guessing we all are! LOL
I had this paper kit for years, in fact, I got it as a giveaway for a workshop I attended at an Expo at least six or seven years ago. I have used it, but there was still so much left of it to use.
It felt great to use up more of the products and papers but guess what? There are still lots of pieces left!
What I like about this layout is that there's a lot of embellishments but they are well placed to not overwhelm the layout or the photo. That's my style of scrapbooking...focus on the photos but also use your stuff! I believe I accomplished this by keeping the embellishments in a diagonal line. What do you think? Do you agree?
This kit is called The Story of Our Family by Lori Whitlock and was perfect for the photo that I have of our impromptu family reunion last year.
The sketch is from Scrapbooking With Ann Marie site and I was able to use three different patterned papers as well as lots of embellishments. Most of these embellishments are from a chipboard pack, but I peeled off most of the chipboard so it wouldn't be so bulky.
