"Today I have for you Mother's Day shadowbox card. I had so much fun with this project. As I pre-cut elements before ( I have a habit of constantly doing something and cutting patterns is perfect for brainless occupation.) It was a really easy and fast project. I prepared a YouTube video tutorial for you below." ~Olga Heldwein

Graphic 45 Precious Memories Mother’s Day

Layout with Tutorial

by Pam Bray

“There are so many precious memories but some seem to be more precious than others. Make sure to take photos as often as you can…even some of the smallest things can create some of the most meaningful memories. I am a firm believer in scrapbooking those moments, journaling about them, and capturing them in photos. I hope you’re as enthusiastic as I am to make sure to document your families and friend’s memories, your travels, your most special or imperfect times of life.” Hugs, Pam Bray

 

Tips:

  • Creating layers on a scrapbook page gives interest.

  • Small titles made with stickers will become the focal point of what your layout is reflecting on.
