Welcome to my blog. . . my name is Gail and I am the very proud mother of three grown sons. I live in the amazing Okanagan Valley and spend my days with my two fur babies, puttering in my garden, scrapbooking and a beginner at photography. There is so much beauty all around and to be able to capture it, take it and create your individual interpretation on paper is so therapeutic and brings me so much enjoyment. All the colours and textures of paper breath life into my world. That's probably why I love my flower gardens so much. All those brilliant colours and floral scents can get you lost for hours.
I am so thankful to God who created all this for my enjoyment. I am a true follower of Jesus and my journey in this life is to walk out His great love in a practical and tangible way. As the Beatles lyrics go "All We Need Is Love".
. . . this is a very special album I created for my Mom's Christmas gift this year. I shared some of her favourite bible passages along with some gorgeous photo's of God's own handiwork. . . I hope you enjoy it.
Using the 8x8 "Old World" paper pack made coordinating the paper easy. I use any kind of cardboard/chipboard I can get my hands on, mostly cereal boxes. I like to design my own albums from scratch, so I'm on the look out for cardboard/chipboard all the time.
On the cover i stamped flourishes in grey ink and then placed a black rubon flourish over top to give it more dimension (I had a lil help from a friend for this). I made the title using my trusty Cricut and sprayed it with Tattered Angels "Glimmer Mist".
To frame the bible verses I used a digi-frames pack from Rhonna Farrer and coordinated coloured fonts to match the "Old World" paper.
There are a few more pages to this album, however my blogging skills are still in da works and this gives you an idea of what the album looks like.
