I love Shimelle's Starting Point series, but confess I've rarely used one of her examples. Instead, I take my scraps and come up with my own starting points, like I did here with what's left of my Echo Park This and That Charming collection.
From this starting point, I added my photos, title and journaling.
A few embellishments later, and the page is finished!
It's pretty convenient that I have some products that were a great fit for a page about Phil's recent interest in wood working. Actually, he's always been interested, and now finally has some time and discretionary income to pursue this hobby.
The background paper, title letters and buttons all have a wood theme. I am especially loving the wooden buttons that are available now. I totally see myself stocking up on these!
So far, Phil's woodworking projects have found a place in my scrap room! He made these table easels a while back, and recently completed this little project to store my ink pads. Notice I have slots that still need to be filled...
But his next project is much bigger and very exciting. It's almost completed I can't wait to share it with you!
