Stamp Collector

When I was a little girl one of my favorite things to do was stamp collecting with my grandma. I had quite a few books and we would spend hours putting stamps in them.

Thirty years later, while going through storage I found all my books. I wanted a way to really show them off. So I decided to scrap them!

It was so much fun to pick out the stamps and create a page for them.

When I was at the Makers Fare I received a lot of feedback from people on how much they liked the album.

I would love to create an album for you. I can custom make an album or individual pages. Just give me your theme. You can order at my websitehttps://specialscraps.com/

Creating the Gift of a Day

First I just have to say how blessed I feel to even be able to create these beautiful scrapbooks for the loved ones of Hospice.  I hope and pray that these albums will be treasured by families for years.  I really believe that I have been called to do this.

The family will receive an 8×8 fully made album of their loved ones special day. IMG_2672

I used all 8×8 papers and made photo mattes for each page. Then I embellished all around the pictures to display their special memories.  Everything fit perfectly!!IIMG_2674

I used pretty premade journal tags. I found these wonderful embellishments that decorated the pages beautifully.  They are called Mambi Chips.

I used leftover scrap pieces to make sticker embellishmentsIMG_2680Then use fun edge scissors to cut them out.Mambi is one of my new favorite scrapbooking  lines now.  Here are some of the Jolees embellishments I used (which is a classic of mine). IMG_2677

The album is full of pictures from that special day.  At the very end I added an entire journal page of the special event as well as important highlights of their life, and then added a page of just embellishments to describe them.IMG_2686

I am truly honored and blessed to have been able to do this for their family.  I can not wait until they receive it!!
