Memory Book

You may have noticed that I haven't updated my blog for over a week.  I was working on a scrapbook with a very tight timeline, and once the blogs I had set up ahead were posted, there were no more until my project was finished and I could get back to this.  My project was a Memory Book for a dance teacher couple who were retiring, and it needed to be done in time to be presented to them at their retirement party. 

Today I'll show a couple of pages from that book.  Both utilize Spellbinder's dies run through my Big Shot to help accent the focal photo.

This first page (above) uses the largest die from the "Fleur De Lis Rectangles" to serve as the top layer of a double mat for the photo. I LOVE this die, even though it tends to take a bit of work to get the paper/cardstock out of the die after cutting/embossing.  It is SO worth it to have the lovely design on my page. The next page used a die from the "Labels One" set to create a frame for the photo. 
Both pages also feature titles cut with my Silhouette - which also cut the swirly embellishments on the second page.  Ribbon and jewel stickers (Dazzles from Hot Off the Press) helped to finish it off.
