Remember when…we used to scrapbook ALL the photos on one layout? And when we saved all the bits and pieces from an event to include on that page? If you’re a scrapbooker who still does…then my job here is done.
But if you’re like me and you’ve gotten away from the 2-page, memento-laden layouts, then this might be something of a walk down memory lane! At least the ephemera part.
Recently we traveled to Utah to visit our youngest son and watch him play hockey in a charity tournament. Guns vs Hoses. Because he works in Corrections, he plays with and for the Guns side. Besides those games, we watched an ECHL game (exciting!!), took a gondola ride up the mountain for lunch, sat and talked and generally caught up. Cleaning out my purse after returning home, I found several pieces that I knew would help tell the story of our quick weekend trip.
For the purposes of incorporating this ephemera, I fell back on the ever-reliable grid design for the page. I used my 2″ square punch to cut portions from the hockey ticket and flight boarding pass. Including them also establishes the dates and times of this event, so I don’t need to worry about adding them elsewhere. And happily, the gondola pass was close enough in size to fit within the grid too.
I used machine stitching lines to further emphasize the grid design. I also used some BoBunny Noteworthy die cuts, stickers from Simple Stories Bloom & Grow, wood veneer from Kaisercraft, a Bella Boulevard Illustrated Faith enamel heart and word and phrase stickers from Cosmo Cricket and Authentique.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Check back soon for another blast-from-the-past, featuring double page layouts!!
