Old Photos / Sweet Stories

I wasn't always a scrapbooker, but I did always take photos.  How lucky I am to have these photos now to scrapbook and tell these sweet stories from the past.

layout created for Amanda Robinson Studio 

When new products come around I like to match them up to these older photos.  Many times they are just perfect for the story I want to tell.  The flatback above with the sweet dog image is from the Jenni Bowlin Studio Reader Flatback set.  It so reminded me of the little dog that used to run away from his own house to visit with my boys down the street.  My boys would get nervous that he might get hurt by a car and would put him in our red wagon and take him home.

The JBS Wood Veneer Insta-Frame works wonderfully to bring attention to the boys in the center of the photo.  It's simple to do by cutting out a 2 inch piece of the photo to focus on, placing it on the center of the Insta-Frame, and adhering the piece back onto the main photo.  The JBS Wood Veneer Home card from the Flash-Card set drives the theme home.  Ha - no pun intended!

I also had two new products to use that worked perfectly together: the April Triangles Background Cut file from Amanda Robinson Studio and the new JBS Triangles Sequins.  How perfectly they worked together on the same page.

Have fun taking your older photos, scrapping them and bringing new life to their stories!
