At my school, we get the whole week off for Thanksgiving. At the beginning of the week, I was writing out Christmas cards and working furiously on craft projects and a December bulletin board that I’ll show you later. I was feeling guilty that I hadn’t gotten any scrapbooking done over the vacation, so I made up for lost time today.
Here is the first page I worked on. All the pages are from 1997. The tanks and plane are a dingbat font called Military RPG. The stencil fonts used are from Denise’s Scrapbooking Room.
Hiking and Tales from High School are done old-school. I used my Creative Memories cutting system and the “old fashioned” technique of cutting a shape around an image that you want to highlight, like the cute chipmunk below. Another thing I did was instead of throwing out copies of that cute little salamander (I had four pictures of him for some reason) I integrated them into embellishments for my page.
The font used for “Hiking” is Harrington.
I used Storybook for the title on Birthday Boy page. The bear is from Paper Crafting World, their Breast Cancer Awareness Bear. I again used the Creative Memories cutting system for the star cut-out. The font for Misc. 1997 is Alphalicious. The paper is KI Memories designer paper Funky Paper pad II.
So, I had a lot of fun, got a lot finished, and made the most of my vacation!
