It's New Year's Eve!!
Today sharing with you an article from Love My Memories scrapbook magazine
from Japan! The article is Scrapbooking Around the World and I was invited to
submit a scrapbook page - yes, I was a bit chuffed :)
The magazine has now been published so I can share the pictures with you.
My page is top left corner and yes, features Bella!
Also a photo of my shop so nice memories.
And this is what it says....
"Originally scrapbooking in the UK was known as just cutting out magazine articles, pictures and sticking them down, no embellishments as such, just perhaps a title and a tiny bit of journaling. In the 70’s and 80’s most teenagers kept scrapbooks of their favourite pop stars/actors. Scrapbooking in the UK arrived quite a long time after it became huge in the US. Thankfully through the introduction of many craft stores/websites and groups scrapbooking it began to become popular. Scrapbooking kits are popular in the UK, subscribing to certain websites and receive their monthly kits along with a leaflet of inspirational projects. Most layouts still keep the photo very much the focal image. Flowers are huge here! Whether they be die cut, silk, ribbon.”
I need to thank Margie Higuchi who designs for both Spellbinders and Scrapbook Adhesives
by 3L for translating the article.
The layout was one I made some time ago and features mainly tags as the design.
It's one of my real favourites.
Pat mentioned that the cartoon on yesterday's blog post would make a great stamp, much
like one I posted before. I agree Pat it would look good.
I have a few friends that have gone into the world of stamp creating -
I have to admit it is not a path I'm keen to take, it is extremely competitive
and I'm a die cutting person at heart.
Also Lesley asked where I get my tags - they are available here.
And now without further ado....I am wishing you all an amazing, creative,
happy and healthy New Year!
Stop by tomorrow - there is an amazing blog hop with tons (yes tons!)
