Where We Love is Home (Little Yellow Bicycle Feels Like Home)

If you're looking for the My Creative Scrapbook blog hop, please go here.



Today I'm sharing another page I designed with this month's creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

The photo is circa 1999. The journaling (in the red pocket) talks about how my Mom's house was always the gathering place. I miss her and I miss those times.


To give the page a homey feel, I created a banner across the top edge of the page using canvas stickers, chipboard, and a house cut from one of the patterned papers in the kit.




I added dimension to pre-printed objects by using chipboard and buttons. I also worked the title into the word "home", which is printed on the background paper.




Here's a closer look at the layering on the journaling pocket. The clock piece was punched from product packaging.




I'll be back tomorrow with another layout to share. Have a great day!
