Webster's Love ♥
I've had these photos since April, 2009 just waiting to be scrapped. We had an April snow that year (which doesn't happen often), so of course, I took photos! I'm not sure why I never scrapped them, I just wasn't "feeling" it. Along comes Webster's Pages Color & Composition collection designed by Allison Kreft... You know where this is going, right? It was love at first sight with these papers, overlays, and embellishments. I just received my order this week and as I was organizing my photos to be scrapped, these jumped out at me. It was time!
I started with the That Way paper but wanted it to have a little dimension so I machine-stitched lines on the paper. It gives such a lovely, subtle effect, I think. I love the beautiful damask overlay in the collection and wanted to use it to mat my photo. I layered vellum under the overlay so that the design of the overlay wouldn't be lost on the patterned paper. Once I had my photos in place I decided it needed a little more dimension, so I grabbed some stamps, Versamark, and my Zing Embossing Powder. I didn't want to overpower the page with the snowflakes so I added just a few, here and there. You may need to click on the photo to see the embossing.
I can't tell you how happy I am that I waited to scrap these photos! It's a good reminder to me that I don't want to force a layout, when the time is right, it will all come together!
