My scrapbook project and updated Pinterest

My first scrapbook is a big project for me.
No I didn’t make a typo, it still IS.

The main goal is not to get the book done, but a project to let my creativity flow.

The scrapbook will contain photo’s of a racing experience day.
A present I gave my boyfriend for our anniversary and Valentines day a couple of years ago.

It’s still my first project, and since it’s not a popular theme to scrap about
(not in the Netherlands anyway) I got stuck very quickly.

Because it contains photo’s of my boyfriend, my challenge is not to make it look childish.
This forced me to think outside the box if I wanted to make it interesting
and not just past the photo’s without any additions (embellishments or pretty paper).

This out of the box thinking resulted in several things;
* Cut every single letter for titles by hand what made me buy my Silhouette Cameo;
* Start cardmaking, because I see a card as a mini embellished scrapbookpage
* Popups, flip- & pull tabs to make a simple page more interesting
* Use washi tape as a simple addition to a photopage

This weekend I really wanted to finish another page.
And, since I scrapped on the couch, there were paper scraps everywhere
and I sat on my scissors a couple of times. No one/nothing was pierced..

On Pinterest I’ve made a board so you can see I materials and some pictures of my progress so far.

I’ve been updating my Pinterest boards in the past weeks.

Besides the first project I’ve also made boards of my basics to start my Project Life,
the stashes I told you about in last weeks posts, and lots of updates for Disney and Cute Cats.

I hope you’ll take a look at my addictions for paper, Disney and kittens.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
