Welcome to the first monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop in 2017.
I hope you have arrived here via
and seen her wonderful projects.
I have focust this time on my new scrapbook for 2017
and made a front page and the first entry.
For making pages I absolutely love the ALSB -
assembly line scrapbooking - formula.
You find a great instruction video by Tricia here:
For my page I used page 5&6 from the instructions.
The first pages in my book are about ringing in
the New Year at my daughter's house with
champagne and fireworks. The eldest grandson
came out of bed and enjoyed seeing the
beautiful firework and going to bed late!
I always make the pages first as they are from the instructions.
Once I add my photo's I make some changes that fit my
personal need, like on the middle strip there was another
text. I typed mine on the computer and printed it
to fit on the strip after cutting it out.
Also the left image I changed. I turned it around and
the white side was beter for the journaling I wanted to add.
For writing I used the free Beacon font that
you can download here.
On the other page I had to adapt the right colomn for
picture, for I had two larger ones. It still gives the same
impression. I added some journaling on an extra piece
I love the font that comes with this kit.
This is printed and colored with some ink around the borders.
Here again the first page. I am sure you want to know
a little more about how I made this. It is made in a
The first layer is the background on 12x12 inch turquoise paper.
For this background I used the dragonfly stencil
that came with this kit. I used dark blue ink
that shades the stencil perfectly on the paper.
The 2nd layer is the yupo paper that is also in this kit.
With alcohol ink you make a wonderful colored paper.
All about the technique you find here.
The 3rd layer is the cut out year (with number dies from
Stampin'Up!). I stamped the leaves on top of the
turquoise paper in black and colored it with green
pencils. The white dots are made with Ranger
white distress spray.
The sentiment is one of the cut aparts that came with
this kit and I am sure 2017 has lots of moment that
we will smile about!
For mor inspiration, I hope you hop over to
