Hello!!

How is everyone's New Year going?

Mine has been full of change.  My husband and I have moved back home to Utah from California.  We moved from busy Southern Cali to a small and very quiet town. Not to mention SNOW!

The best part is being near family though.
I have been making my 2 nephew's scrapbook since the first one was born 5 years ago. So when I found out my nephew got a stamp set for Christmas I couldn't wait to scrapbook with him.

Tayvin used every stamp in his set, and while I was cutting them out he drew the cutest little picture. I asked him what it was a picture of. He said it was me standing outside and looking at the mountains. Boy he is observant, because I have done this every day since I have been here.



I think our scrapbook page turned out pretty cute!!
He has asked me when we can scrapbook again. I told him now that I live here, we are going to scrapbook all the time!



This Welcome Home Collection by Carta Bella was the perfect collection to create a 'welcome home' layout!

Simple Stories Vintage Blessings "Thankful" Layout

     Happy New Year! Drea with the Design Team, and I'm back with my first project for 2018 featuring the Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Collection from FotoBella.com. I was feeling nostalgic, so I scrapped this older photo of me and my son.



     The heart was pieced together with papers from the Vintage Blessings Collection Kit, with the end strips cut with zigzag scissors to create the bottom layer. For some dimension I colored the paper edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink. Then I did some hand-stitching for that quilted look, adding "Thankful" from the Chipboard.



     Before adhering the heart, I applied a light coat of Prima Marketing's Heavy White Gesso to the background paper in a heart shape, to give it a faded, vintage look. Within the heart, I added a few strips of the Vintage Blessings Grateful Washi Tape.



     Finally, I popped up this die from the Bits & Pieces



     
     Thanks for looking, and see what's new at FotoBella.com!
