GoGo Getaway - my final projects...

As promised here are the final projects from my weekend away at the GoGo Getaway, another layout and a Mini Album...

This is a before and after of Lee at the Great North Run in Newcastle..

And finally a Mini Album which I love doing! This class showed us how to use a regular stationery item in scrapbooking... plain manilla envelopes! Really simple to do, punch holes in the closed ends of the envelopes and then put eyelets in each of them. Pick a coordinating range of papers that suit your theme (ours was travel) and cut to size and mount onto each side of the envelope. Stick down your photos. Take something that you can use on the front cover and each page that relates to the theme (ours was a cute stamp of a black cab), and attach this to each page. Journal on some strips of coordinating paper and stick to each page, overlapping the photos. Finally decorate the front and back covers... You can of course add in additional photos or other memorabilia by including them in the envelopes, just mount onto card and include a tab at one end...

And that's all from the October GoGo Getaway, already looking forward to the next one in March!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Your mini album is so cool and the pictures are so incredible. I love the scrapbook page with the accordion fold behind the pictures!
