Jen Matott here with a scrapbook layout to share. It’s that time again and I’m reminiscing about my days as a student, especially since I’m on the other end as a mom and teacher now. I had my 20th high school reunion a few weeks ago and it was a blast! I loved talking to my classmates about things we remember happening when we were young. Before the reunion, we had a Facebook page set up and shared photos from high school! I dug out my box of memories and yearbooks and scanned in a bunch of photos. I found my senior photos and can believe how long my hair was and how young I looked! My skin was so smooth! So, I decided to do a page with that photo…
I used one of the canvas pages from the Oh So Mini line… It’s the stamp-edged one and I used VersaMark through a new Prima stencil and added Bubblegum pink embossing powder from WOW! It still keeps the canvas texture but embosses beautifully! I did use the ScraPerfect pouch before so that it eliminated any static in the fabric. Works perfectly!
Here’s a close up of the texture in the canvas and embossing powder. I love this effect!!! So going to do this again in the future on canvas!
I also used a chipboard frame from the new Fanciful Frames II line! I love how sturdy and adorable these are! It fit my photo to perfection and I prettied it up with some stamping from Suzy West’s “Call Me” stamp set and WOW copper embossing powder.
You can see how I mixed other embossing powders in to create a patina look. You can alter these frames with just about anything!
Here I am at 17 years old and boy do I wish I had that skin and hair back! It was so fun to reminisce and look through old photos. If you have old back to school photos, get them out and scrap a page with your memories of a younger you!
Happy Back to School for all the students, parents, and teachers out there!!
