Memories layout

This month got off to a rocky start. My husband's grandmother died very quickly. We had two trips to country Queensland in a week to say our goodbyes and then to farewell her with a beautiful graveside and church services.

My family does crazy pretty well by now. This isn't the first family funeral I've been to! I took pictures to remember the day by and made this layout to feature them. Scrapbooking a funeral might sound a bit morbid to you. To me, it's a family occasion that should be remembered for what it is, saying our earthly goodbyes to our beloved Nanni.


Out of respect for the clan, I've not put the completed layout up to view. Grief is a very private matter and it's not my place to share such moments publicly without permission.

To make this layout I've used the following materials. Falling For You paper packet, Basics cardstocks, White Daisy cardstock, Trimmer, Versamat, Adhesive Runner, Ruler, Make It From Your Heart volume 2 pattern 7.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! I'm quite liking this design team thingy. This sketch was a really fun one!


I decided to tweak it a bit and made this sketch into a peekaboo card. From here it looks pretty much like the sketch right?

When you open it..... peekaboo! The inside is completely blank!


To make this card, I used my trusty toolkit: Versamat™, Trimmer, Adhesive Runner, Stamping Starter Kit, Fern Exclusive Ink, Confetti Embossing Folder, Gift Thin Cuts, Card Value Pack, White Daisy Bashful Fern and Eggplant Exclusive Cardstocks, Bone Folder, Scissors, Banner Wishes and Angel Policy Stampsets.
