Hello friends, it’s Smitha here! Today, I am sharing a peek into my memory keeping process. Memory keeping to me is my way to play with photos, stick them down and make something pretty!
- MONO Adhesive + Permanent
- MONO Multi XL liquid glue
- Patterned papers and white cardstock
- Paper die-cuts
- Felt embellishments
- Alphabet stickers
- Photo album
Make your own embellishment cards! Start by trimming down patterned papers to size. My pocket scrapbook has pockets for 3×4 inches and 4×6 inches.
Adhere embellishments to the cards. Personalize them and make them uniquely yours.
I love adding paper doilies to my cards and I always use the MONO Adhesive + Permanent. It has an instant start mechanism that is perfect to hold down all corners and edges. It also creates a strong permanent bond which is great for scrapbooking!
For felt embellishments, I use the MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue (even if they come with their own adhesive backing). A few drops of this and the embellishment will be held in place nicely.
Add a photo or photos! I added a photo onto a piece of cardstock. I tucked some cute ephemera beneath it and a few colorful gems around to make the photo look special.
Add an initial monogram by adhering to an alphabet thicker. I’ve had many old scrapbooks of mine drop their alphabet stickers! So these days, I use the MONO Adhesive + Permanent.
Finally, insert all of our handmade cards into the pockets of the scrapbook album. I also like to add a bold patterned paper as a filler card. Try to choose a patterned paper that ties in all the colors you have used on the page. This will create a beautifully cohesive page!
There you have it! A pretty first page of my album is done. My style for scrapbooking is simple with pops of pink. I love having white spaces and textures of white with paper doilies.
If you give these a try, share them with us using the hashtag #tombowusa or tag @tombowusa! Take care!
