6x6 scrapbook pages

I've been working on a small 6x6 scrapbook album of our family. I've never done this size before and always thought it too small. But after seeing how the album is coming along; I've decided it's a great size to work with. It only requires one photo per page and minimal embellishments. Anyway, here are a couple of layouts.

These first two pages, use colours from the Kristina Werner colour challenge of last week, which is very popular at the moment. Since I had black & white photo's, I thought I'd use these colours: Bashful Blue, Not quite Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White & So Saffron.
Stamps are from the Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set. I've also used the Paisley Print in the So Safron Designer Print paper.

I love how the colours turned out in these layouts. Choc Chip, River Rock, Very Vanilla & Ballet Blue. Very natual colours! I've also used the Natural Beauty stamp set which I haven't inked for such a long time. I thought the sentiments stamp was very fitting to describe the photo's.

One more page, and I'm up to date for this year so far. This little album is actually a gift, so unfortunately I won't be keeping it. The idea is that when I have new photo's of us and the boys, I can scrapbook them and send the pages off to be put into the album. A nice little record of 2008!!

Hiya - Love the scrapbook pages Chantelle - I like how they are black and white photos - makes them stand out a bit more. Also love your renovations - must be great having a new kitchen and all. Take care and have a great week xx


Thnaks for sharing those lovely pages Chan!
I love how they are so simple but so effective.
The colors you've used are great too!
Nice idea that you are making a 2008 'giveaway' and so are you sure you dont want to make 2 copies:)

Absolutely gorgeous, Chantelle! Love the colours you chose. And the "minimalist" approach works really well, so the attention stays focussed on the photos. Love them! You sure are talented:)

domThe scrap pages are gorgeous Chan. Love the last one of Kyle. Those colours blend fantastically with the colors in the photo. Good choices! Keep the scrappies coming, I'm taking notes...lol.
Sorry I haven't responded till now, my computer monitor decided to give up the ghost so had to wait a few days before I could borrow my dear sister's, who is about to fly high.
