16 Our House2Here’s a scrapbooking layout idea using the first sketch we gave in our scrapbook sketch series.

The remit was to tell us “some of the things you value that make your home your home

These things are integral to our lives but we don’t often take the time to think about them. So that was the purpose of this scrapbook layout idea.

ScrapbookLayout 1 - Our House 2

Isabella’s excitement with digital scrapbooking continues to grow. “Being able to adjust the products to what I need is great. Being able to use them and still have them really is ‘having your cake and eating it!” she laughs.

“The photo frame was just a double frame for two photos. I needed three,” she told me. “So I copied the original (to keep it safe) and worked on the copy. I cropped it to a little bit more than one frame, making sure I got the string and eyelets that join them. I then positioned it seamlessly over the edge of the original frame, giving the triple frame I needed.”

The journaling was put on the roof so as not to clutter the layout any more. Word fragments are ‘nailed’ to the tree under a sign saying ‘house rules’. The three words, faith, love and family, were placed under the house like foundations stones.
