Hello and welcome to Scrapbook Circle!Ever since I was young, it has been important to me to document the stories of my life. From the time I received my first camera when I was eight years old until now, taking pictures and organizing them to tell stories has been an important part of my life.In 2006 my dear friend, Crystal, and I decided to share our love of scrapbooking with others and we started Scrapbook Circle. It has been such a fabulous adventure to get to share our passion for preserving memories with others. After about a year and a half of running Scrapbook Circle, Crystal decided that she needed to focus more time on her family, so she turned her responsibilities over to me. It is such a blessing to be able to preserve my family’s memories and I’m sure you feel the same way about preserving your memories. I am truly thankful everyday for this wonderful opportunity to connect with others who find preserving their memories as important as I do.  I love this creative journey and I hope you will join me as we learn and grow together.

And now to the sketch....


I first decided to flip the sketch 90 degrees anti-clockwise. I then made a card base from kraft cardstock and gathered up some scraps of patterned paper from the Everyday Circus Collection by Fancy Pants Designs.  

I coloured some embossing paste with Distress Ink and applied it using a star stencil on my background paper.  

I then stamped and coloured a stamp and sentiment from Stampin' Up and layered that panel on some die-cut pieces of paper.  

The brads were from my stash.






I just love the texture and interest that the embossing paste adds :-)
I hope you'll play along with us and be sure to pop over to Feeling Sketchy for more inspiration from the DT and for all the challenge details.
