Scrapbooking in 2022 | This Year’s Album – Title Page, January and February

I'm continuing with the theme begun back in 2020 - an album title page and one layout per month. I scraplifted a design seen on Shimelle's Instagram feed for this year's title page and I love how it has turned out. 🙂 (It's also a great way to use up small and seemingly random embellishments.) … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2022 | This Year’s Album – Title Page, January and February

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

It was only when I was sorting the layouts made at Crop in the Country into albums, that I realised I had created a page suitable for this month's One Little Word. Before slipping the page into an album, I added two more acrylic embellishments, and extra photos and journaling to the back of the … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

Scrapbooking in 2022 | Wedding Layouts

Crop in the Country | The Final Two Classes

The first class of Sunday morning featured patterned papers by Paige Evans and involved a spot of fussy cutting. The design originally called for a square photo, but I used a trimmed down a 6x4 one. I have since added the location and date. The final class of the weekend is perhaps my favourite. 🙂 … Continue reading Crop in the Country | The Final Two Classes

Crop in the Country | The First Four Classes

The first class of the weekend began on Friday evening. The teacher had used a trimmed 6x4 photo, but I opted for three overlapping smaller photos of our great nephews. I wasn't sure about the mustard yellow colour initially, but in the end, I felt it worked with the colours in my photos. I need … Continue reading Crop in the Country | The First Four Classes
