Numbers fill every aspect of our lives, and give us inexhaustible opportunities for scrapbooking ideas & page themes. After reading the ‘Got Your Number’ feature from the Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, I thought I’d give ‘numbers’ a bash.
My page focusing on our 10th wedding anniversary, is a milestone memory for us that I really wanted to remember.
10 years by Kim Watson. Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket and Studio Calico; Die cuts accents and stickers: American Crafts; Flair buttons: Omorlu; Peg: Pebbles; Metal number: Tim Holtz; Decorative tape: My Mind’s Eye; Wood veneer: Studio Calico; Pens: Zig; Adhesives: 3L, I Love to Create, and Tombow; Tools: Die cutting machine: Silhouette America; Trimmer, mat, and scissors: Fiskars America; Knife: X-acto; Printer & paper: Hewlett-Packard; Other: Tag and thread.
NOTE: All supplies from Cocoa Daisy kit.
Using my Silhouette I cut out a few number 10′s around the page, then stuck white cardstock behind the cut outs for a subtle background design. An alternative to a die- cutting machine is doing it by hand; tracing the numbers from old alpha packaging and cutting them out with an X-acto knife.
I hope this page has inspired you to try a number theme on your next scrapbook project.
Have a super day!
