Please welcome Anne-Liesse as our double page guest designer!
name is Anne-Liesse, and I had a great time guest designing this
two-page spread for May.
I live in North Carolina, and have done so for the last 13 years. I am a
teacher, wife and mother and I have been scrapbooking for more than 18
years. I rubber stamped cards and made hand crafted mini books before
that. I love the color and the visual texture of scrapbooking. It just
makes me happy to make pretty pages with pretty paper and tell stories
along with it.
How about some Christmas in July?!? When I saw this sketch I
knew immediately that I wanted to use some photos I had from Christmas
time to make the layout. I find that holidays and birthdays often yield a
lot of photos, but the story may be hard to tell each year since we do
it EACH YEAR.
This sketch was perfect to feature a bunch of photos - 15!! - and let those
images tell the story. I did make the photos on the title side a bit
bigger than those on the right page. The giant title and a few
embellishments were all that was needed to complete the layout.
I used the We Are Memory Keepers mini alphabet punch board for the
title, and added some hand stitching. My papers were from Pebbles and
Paper Studio, and the red burlap was from a Mix and Match paper pad from
Canvas Corp that I snatched up from Tuesday Morning. I hope you enjoy this layout!
