Finally I finished my 2007-overall-scrapbook-year (I scrapped the summer holidays, but wanted also other moments and events captured). Actually I told myself I could not start scrapping our Disney trip until this 2007 thing was done. I mean: when EVER would I finish it then???
When I started (jan. 2008, SIGH) , I thought I would make a zutter book of it. So I used 8 by 8 inch black paper. But working on it, I forgot about the wholes to be made for a zutter book… I worked too close on the edges. If I would make a zutter book of it, the wholes would ruin a lot of my photo’s.
I made a cover from package material leftovers and scrap paper. It came out really nice (left picture)! But when I found a photo of my kids and a little friend, taken on the moment they litterally jumped into 2007, I had to put it on the cover. Thanks to Ali Edwards words: IT’S OKAY (from her last book Life artist, follow this link ) I glued the photo on the cover. Because HEE isn’t that a great moment to HAVE?!
Instead of binding the papers in any way, I choose to put the scrap pages in some sort of envelope idea.
And I also finished the last pages, so I can start with my 500+ pictures from Disney. No, no deadlines, FIRST START!!! By the way, I love to play with digital scrapping for papers, words and photo’s. But for me, the tactile feeling of a page with an actual photo on it, ribbons, bling and other stuff wins.
