Onstage

I have loads of photos waiting to be scrapped. One thing I don’t scrap as often is memorabilia—and I’ve got a bunch of that too. With this page, I finally got some memorabilia out of storage and onto a page. Hurray!

Onstage

The memorabilia is a program and a ticket for a play my niece did in high school.

Let’s talk more about the layout.

  • I knew that the program would take up a bunch of room on the page, so I didn’t use a sketch for the page. I decided to figure out where the program would go and then just place everything else around it. This worked out all right, though I wouldn’t call this a perfect design. I’m pleased with the page nonetheless.
  • How to adhere the memorabilia is always a question. In this case, I did some hand sewing along the bottom and the two sides of the blue floral paper to create a pocket for the program. Hand sewing is always time consuming, but it wasn’t too bad in this case. As for the ticket, I tucked that behind the photos with most of it in sight.
  • I love the little pops of pink on this page. The pink diecuts and texture paste stand out against the blue and gray on the layout.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out the process video.

Until next time. Be back soon!
