Pink Roses Scrapbook Page

“Pink Roses” By Kandy Fetzer

Here is another sweet picture of my daughter at one week old.  I took a diagonally cut piece of pink striped scrapbook paper and pink rose printed vellum and adhered them to a white  6″ x 6″ page of scrapbook paper.  I placed the cropped picture (4-3/4″ x 4″) in the middle.  The 2 journal-ed corner tags are stamped in pink with a rose background stamp (retired, from Stampin’ Up!).  I attached them with gold mini brads.

Another super simple page!

Anne’s Quilt Scrapbook Page

"Anne's Quilt" by Kandy Fetzer

I am trying to put together a 6″ x 6″ scrapbook of my daughter’s first year.  One page for each month to show the progression of change.  This is a picture of her at 2 months of age on the quilt that I made for her.  It is a pretty simple  and quick layout.  I cropped the picture slightly to 4″ x 5-1/2″.  Each “patch” measures 1″ x 1″.  I used left over scraps from the bottom of my paper drawer.  The title and journaling block is vellum attached with silver mini brads.

Back Pack Tags from Kandy's Keepsakes

I made these back pack tags for the boys in my daughter’s pre-school class.  They started out as laminate counter top samples.  I came across a bunch that were just going to be thrown away.  So I sat down and decided to make these…

They measure 2 x 3 inches.  I cut coordinating scrapbook paper to the proper size and adhered them with Quick Dry paper glue.  I trimmed around the corners with scissors and used a sanding block to remove any uneven edges.  I used walnut ink around each edge of the tag to give it a finished edge.  Once the walnut ink was dry I applied the star and nascar or Spiderman stickers.  I stamped each child’s name on vanilla cardstock and dragged the edges of the cardstock in red ink and adhered them to the tag.  Next I added the binder ring and lastly added the ribbon for decoration.
