August Page Challenge

Every month we have a Scrapbook page challenge at Scrap Arts . The challenge for August was
Only One Black & White photo
Only One Patterned Paper
Only One 3D element
Hand written journaling

This was really a challenge for me. I'm not great at Scrapbooking to begin with, I prefer cards. I found this picture of my grandmother and decided it would be great for this challenge. I usually like more pictures on a page. When it is just one I have trouble filling the space. I stamped some green flourishes on the green card stock, they are hard to see but they are there. I used my Alphalicious Cricut Cartridge for the lettering. The journaling was handwritten, but I blocked it out for the picture. I used my Fiskars "Elegance" edge punch on the patterned paper. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Porcelain line.

The challenge page for October is due by the 31st. I haven't even started it yet. It should be much easier for me though. I can use more than 1 photo in it LOL. The rules for this months challenge are

  • 1-3 vintage photos
  • stamping
  • inking
  • one distressing element
  • hidden journaling

I'll post it once it is finished.

I totally understand the crafting with a cat fun. I have a little black cat named Poe and he loves to attack anything and everything. Which makes it hard to sew sometimes. Keep up the good work!
