Ink & Share blog hop - February 2021

Hello crafters and welcome to another Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop. February is the month of love and again a group of us from various parts of the world are getting together to share ideas for beautiful scrapbook layouts - this time of course its a Love theme. Whether you've dropped in from Jo or come straight here into my blog post I bid you welcome and hope we can all tempt you to create a page yourself.

My initial idea was to create a page featuring my lovely husband, but in the end I decided to just go with the first photo in my very large mountain of photos that would fit the bill and see what happened. As it turned out my husband does feature 💕 ... along with our delightful little granddaughter, who at the time was two years old (she's a very grown up six now). At this time, she was all about the "Big Squidgey's"..... really lovely tight hugs and we are both looking forward to the day we can go collect a few of those after a year bereft of them. 

I based my layout on a design I found on Pinterest. To create mine I used a 12x12 sheet of an old pink colour I had left in my stash, then used Real Red and Misty Moonlight card and ink to create the layers. The stamped images came from the Heartfelt stamp set. The strips of paper beside the photo came from lefts overs in my pack of From My Heart designer papers (if the image looks a bit crooked, its because the pink sheet had been half laying down so has a curve to it, very annoying!). When I showed my husband this layout, it brought back some very happy memories and that's what scrapbooking is all about 😊

Please do now click on The NEXT button to visit Rebecca-Jo's page and then have a look at everyone else's creations around the hop, I know you'll be inspired.

Happy crafting
Karen
