FLASHBACK FRIDAY - week #4

Following through with my evolution of scrapbooking, here are a few more layouts from the past. I've been going through all of my old books and it's been quite fun looking back at all the memories. As hokey as some of these layouts seem, I remember enjoying making every one of them. I recall even back then, thinking to myself, 'what else can be created for scrapbook use'? Wow, as most of us know, it is never-ending because I'm still wondering! Take a look and see if any of these techniques look familiar.


I used my crimper for the title of this page, and this is hand-woven. I remember looking everywhere for the perfect color cardstock.

In this layout, I cut the title out of vellum, which I used quite a bit at the time.

Remember these page kits? I loved them and I think I had them all. That's Alyssa as the witch, Rachel Sawdy as the cheerleader, Kelly's the Statue of Liberty, Nicholas Prueher as the mummy and my buddy, Aaron Steinbrenner as Elvis! These were taken during our annual Halloween party.This was a fun page to make. Remember when we would cut out the people in the pictures?
And colorblocking. I still have all these templates. I loved using these and I may even use them again! I also could have owned stock in Deluxe Cuts!
Here's another page kit I used for this Dozer Days ayout. By the way, if any of you have young boys (or girls), I recommend Dozer Days. It was a blast!
Don't be afraid of this next layout...




brace yourself...






It's a Coluzzel puzzle. I had completely forgotten about this page. I just have to say, I love coluzzel. I think it's the best cutting system out there and I'm sad it's discontinued. I think I should re-patten it or something because I could make some awesome shapes and borders and shapes. I need to write a strongly worded letter to Provo! All those that agree say YA! (I would, however, let them keep the puzzle templates)...










Here you go....





Next week: I introduced "metals" to my pages - YIKES!
