October Scrapbooking Ministry

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 2, 2007 in Scrapbooks |

As I’ve mentioned before (at least I think I mentioned it), I coordinate a monthly Scrapbooking Ministry at my church. 

We are scrapbooking the “Fruits of the Spirit” this year and last month, we made the title page for our scrapbook:

Fruit of the Spirit page 

This month, we will be talking about “love” and I designed a make-and-take scrapbook layout depicting love in our lives.  I decided to design all the layouts to use whole 4X6 photos uncropped to make it easy for attendees to just drop their photos right on the page after we’re done.

Because I don’t know exactly how many people will attend, I have to be very flexible on my make-and-takes – I usually use just cardstock with few embellishments (I may not have enough for everyone).

I sat down this morning to design my layout and decided to use photos that show the love between a mother and child – photos of me with each of my children as babies.

Here’s what I came up with:

LOVE layout

The two photos on the left are me and Andrew, the two photos on the right are me and Matt and the two photos in the center are me and Emily.

I used the Priceless Stampin’ Up! stamp set (LOVE that set) and stamped swirls and flowers onto Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the monogram letters and cut them out for the title and added a little bit of journaling and some cut-out hearts popped up on some dimensionals for a little texture.

This layout could also be used to showcase other ‘love’ photos – husbands and wives, pets, things we love, places we love…whatever love means to you.

But I had so much fun looking at photos of my children as babies!   I may try to finally catch up on their baby books someday soon…
