With Father's Day a few days away, I have been thinking a lot about and missing my dad. This is my second Father's Day without him, and I still miss him as much as ever. Scrapbooking is still a part of the healing process, and brings to mind the precious memories of the past.
I'm a very visual scrapper, and there isn't a lot of pre-planning that goes into my projects. Once I choose the photo, the rest of my project flows from there. I added the journaling to the photo in Photoshop, then printed it off in two sizes to give me more design options. With the photo in hand, I usually compile my primary supplies choosing papers and embellishments that compliment the photo.
For this layout, I stamped the “Hello Friend” cloud stamps onto the scraps of photo paper leftover from printing, then cut them out by hand. To punch decorative shapes from washi tape, cover a piece of card stock with strips of washi tape in the desired width and simple punch. Mixing and matching embellishments from six different lines allowed me to add lots of tiny hearts in a variety of tones. Finishing the layout off with a couple of rolls of the chevron Roller Doodle draws the eye back to the photo again.
