As it Happens scrapbooking video :: A Collage of Embellishments for Father's Day

scrapbook page by shimelle laine @ shimelle.com - process video in post
We have taken really goofy pictures for many years now. Having a child now makes this socially acceptable. WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS? I have no better or more flowery way to express this sentiment. Just know, we continue to embrace goofy photos. I think you need a warning about that before you scroll down and see the full scrapbook page and all its goofy photo glory.

It’s also been a while since I created a page that takes a little longer, with lots of embellishments that come together in a collage, bit by bit. I don’t plan out what supplies I’m going to use and just let each step guide me to the next basket of stickers or bowl of die cuts. That process is definitely in my ‘makes me feel alive’ level of crafting techniques. I get such enjoyment from discovering that a punched shape fits in a chipboard frame matches the colour of an enamel dot and so on. I feel like that’s admitting something secret and shameful, but you like paper. You understand. I hope. And now, moving on to a really long video with that goofy photo!


This time around, my train-of-thought bother comes from descending letters and hybrid handwriting that is neither print nor cursive. Riveting, I tell you.

Supplies in this page are a true mix of new and old, and I tried to mention the brand of everything in the video as I went. The background paper, word stickers, polaroid-style frame paper and sticker, dotty paper, phrase stamp, and ticket and heart die cuts are all from my True Stories collection, the ‘2’ at the top right is from the 6×6 paper pad in the first Shimelle collection. Other supplies include tags from Cosmo Cricket, chipboard and letter stickers from October Afternoon, enamel dots from Doodlebug, vellum shapes from Studio Calico, journaling card, fabric and puffy stickers from Amy Tangerine, stickers from Dear Lizzy, label from My Mind’s Eye, sticker from MAMBI, stitched die-cut from Crate Paper. Adorably cheesy matching t-shirts are by Little Bird at Mothercare!

If you create a page with one side all filled with embellishments (or if you have already created one that is online somewhere), I’d love for you to share a link in the comments. What embellishments – new or old – are making you happy recently?

Have a beautiful weekend and may it have some time to craft. Bonus if it has time to craft with red love hearts, of course.

    I really enjoy your “ as it happens videos. “ I also understand about the letters. When I use them, the “r” really throws me off. You made it look really nice.

  2. Cindy Says:

    Love the video and can’t believe how big Wonder Boy is already!
    Those letters would drive me crazy; here in the States, they’re not even teaching cursive writing anymore (or so my grandson tells me). I just don’t get it.

  3. Berta Says:

    Great video, photo and LO. I love watching your videos and love your train of thoughts and rambles. So fun. Like watching a friend scrapbook, not watching a how to video, put this here, that there.

    Love,love, LOVE!

    With all the storms here this past week, I’ve had trouble w. the internet, but finally got to finish your video. Awesome photo! The long border shows it off perfectly. The title does look so much better at the bottom of the photo. As Cindy said above, recently they’ve abandoned teaching cursive (in Indiana anyway) and it just seems like a horrible mistake to me! Thanks for showing us another lovely l/o. Maria

    My little boy is also in a pointing phase, and I think this photo is adorable! Like many others have already said, I just love watching your videos and hearing your thought process…and I enjoy your rambles! I feel exactly the same way as you about descenders…and I must admit that I have absolutely hybridized handwriting… not just printing and cursive, but a tiny bit of calligraphy thrown in, too! oh, I could go on and on about how I worked on my handwriting, especially in middle and high school….. ;-)
