Inspired By...Found Object Embellishments

My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Embellish your page with something  that is not a scrapbooking supply. This page about my dad's love of reading and collecting books inspired me to dig through my collection of bookmarks for an original touch.


Collection Featured: Teresa Collins He Said
My found object is this bookmark from amazon.com. Love the quote and the way it supports the story. I added some stitching and a brad to dress it up a bit. You can see what the rest of the design team created in the article here. Have you ever used a supply that is not your typical scrapbooking embellishment?

The new issue is up over at Masterful Scrapbook Design. I read through it today and love what I see! You can see it too, for 10 days, absolutely free by clicking the link below.

Current Issue: Color 2

  11. Cool layout! Love that photo and the subject matter. My Dad has retired too and always has his head in a book and loves his e-reader now too. I'm going to "borrow" this idea and snap a photo of my Dad at Christmas and make a page like this! :)

  12. I have a canvas bag with that quote on it! Great use of the bookmark on your page. I like to use found objects - recently used some clothing tags from my cultural memorabilia box & some bookmarks from the library book club on some layouts.

  14. Love the idea of using the bookmark on your page Sue! And I love how the Orange in the bookmark picks up the color from the striped chair in your photo! Great photo of your Dad, and I love the title and journaling added under your photo!

  15. I love the idea of using a book mark. You have reminded me that there is a collection of holiday souvenir book marks round here somewhere: bet that could lead to a story or two! Thank you. It's a lovely page, too
