Reflections of flowers


I have been having a break from digital scrapbooking and have gone back to traditional scrapbooking.  I have been working on putting my old flower photos in an album and for this I have been using the Reflections range from Creative Memories.  The colours from this palette (along with the green apple and cloud cardstock)  work really well with my flower photos –  especially as I tend towards pink flowers and the greens and blues complement this colour so well.  I use colour in the form of matting and background papers/cardstock to help highlight my photos.

Some of my photos were not great so I trimmed them down and I was then able to put 11 photos onto one page – see the second image down.  I love using the circle and oval cutters as well to create a different shape for my layout.    Scrapbook page of aquilegias Scrapbook page using 11 photos Scrapbook page Scrapbook pages of rose

  1. Hello outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work?
    I’ve very little knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask. Many thanks!

    1. Hello there. Thank you for your comments. I have chosen WordPress for my blog and found that it has been easy to use. There are lots of tutorials and suggestions to create your own style. I have worked on it over a few weeks and learn something new every time. I try and update this blog about once a week and try and provide some variety with the content. Sometimes it can take a long time to write – particularly when I am describing what I have done with digital scrapbooking. However, I feel that the results have been worth it and I do find it enjoyable. Onr hint – make sure you use spell check!
