After a hiatus of 4 years TradeFish Designs is back. My name is Cecilia “C” Stephens and I created TradeFish Designs (TFD) about 7 years ago. It was my creative outlet. I even started my own clear stamp company. Life took over and I went dark for a while. I was still as creative as my schedule would allow but it definitely took a backseat. Now I’m back and ready to share my ideas and designs with all of you. TFD will be showcasing cards, scrapbook pages, gifts and other crafty projects.
For the first post of 2018 I thought I would share a project from the past. In June of 2016 I joined some of my closest girlfriends and spent an entire weekend laughing. Below is a simple 1 page scrapbook layout. I used my Cricut Explore Air and cut out a cool clock face. I used some pages out of a collection I picked up at Tuesday Morning. Check out me, Mary, Sandy and Norma. Four crazy gals in North Myrtle Beach, SC.
Once the photo was matted and put in off-center, I added a title that I thought most appropriate. This layout had the main photo and a title but was lacking a couple of other key elements in a scrapbook layout…journaling and embellishments.
My style is clean and simple. I added a small bit of journaling and a couple of embellishments and this one was done. I also try to add some dimension to my pages. The page ends up in clear plastic sleeve and then in an album but its important to me to show different layers in my pages. The photo below shows off the different dimension of the page.
I hope you enjoyed this layout. Come back soon for more fun creations.
