Strong - Authentique ~ The Scrapbook Store

 Hello - hope you are well ☺  For the month of June, I will be creating with Strong - Authentique for The Scrapbook Store.
This collection is fairly masculine, but has some great pattern papers that you could use for lots of different themes.   I've already dug into my kit and created a few pages - all very different.  This month I will also be doing a tutorial on one of my pages using this kit.
But today, I'm sharing this first page - which includes a number of photo's:
 I've used some pictures of my husband with our youngest - these have been taken almost a year ago!  Today I want to show you how I scrapped them on this page using a number of photo's from the same moment and how photo's can tell a story when you include more than one.
I've used some of the pattern papers: 12x12 double sided - Clever & 12x12 double sided - Marvelous.  Also one of my favourite masks - this chevron pattern with texture magic.
Here are some close-up's:

 The chevron details - I used texture magic and also outline with a black pen.  The black foam letters are from my stash.  I've used my Silhouette to create the word 'this' as part of the title.
 Another chevron pattern using some of the pattern paper and a photo corner punch.  In this section, I've created a folder to include an additional photo.
 This is the additional photo with some more journalling.  It's quite easy to add more photo's to your pages by creating pockets or folders with pattern papers.  I love how this has turned out and it helps to tell the story about what happened at the moment ☺
These are some of the double sided die-cut blocks - I've tied some twine around one of the pieces.

So this is just one of my pieces of inspiration using this fabulous collection - I will be sharing more soon.  If you would like to have these papers - check out The Scrapbook Store to view the entire collection ☺
Thanks for coming by ♥
