My Beautiful Grandson, and Close to My Heart Layouts - The Scrapbook Store

This is a layout created for The Scrapbook Store of my beautiful Grandson, Tyeson.  I absolutely love the Shabbylicious paper collection by FabScraps - it is really just beautiful. The tags from the Die Cut Set  are so sweet, with the cutest images on them - the whole package has gorgeous elements.
The Scrapbook Store - Roses and Leaves as well as Green Tara - Flowers and Ribbon. Aged Shabby Blue embossing powder was used on the Grandson chipboard piece.  
 Again, I used the Flourish 1 stencil, and coloured using Ethereal Emerald Moonshadow Mist, and also White Linen ink spray - as you can see the stencil is a little deeper than others on the market and leaves a 'higher' impression.  I added in some thin guipure lace around the outside edge of the layout that was in my stash.... just finished this layout nicely.

and this next layout is an 8 X 8, which was perfect for the embellishments and photograph I wanted to use.  I started an 8 X 8 album a few years ago, and I have not added any pages to it for quite some time - shame on me!! LOL
The photograph is from left to right my Aunt Helen (deceased), Grandpa and Grandma (deceased), my Mum, and my brother Paul (deceased) on the bike, with me next to him. 

 I used the Shabbylicioous Die-Cut Elements and also the matching Chipboard elements as the main focal.  The outside edge was dusted in Victorian Velvet, Distress Glitter - if you haven't tried Distress Stickles yet, it is a must for the shopping list.  You can find all the colours available 'HERE'. Adore the glitter, the chunks, and the shine.
The chipboard window, has a die-cut shape with shutters that fits perfectly over the top.
I fussy cut one of the flower sprays from one of the tag die-cuts and added it to the chipboard jug - really need to keep this page fairly flat to go into my album.
The Scrapbook Store has their own brand of chipboard, and one of the many available are the 'words' - these are some of my very favourite and in one pack, there is ample for a number of layouts in all types of wording - they really are gorgeous. 

Happy Creating
Sandie

So taken with your Heritage layout. Such a heartwarming photo. So glad you took the time to scrap it. Is there room to tuck a note behind the window? It would be fantastic to journal your memories of this photo for future generations!~
