Une Cafe

Bonjour!  A new Paris layout….Une Cafe.


The photo on the right is my hubby sitting in a cafe we stopped in.  It is layered over the transfer from the photo in my Rue de Bretagne layout  As you can see the photo is quite dark and maybe should not have been scrapped, but it is hard to eliminate any Paris pictures!  My Paris photos are all from film…so I got what I got….my hubby is too dark and the background is blurry (which would have been good, depth of field and all, if my hubby wasn’t so dark),..but this forced me to get creative* with my layout.  I created a collage that includes part of the index print, which is pretty interesting with the rectangles of yellow and the sneak peak of the pictures to come.  


You can see, I included some humorous journaling and cafe ephemera…a sugar cube wrapper.  (Yes, I saved it and I wasn’t even a scrapper then!!)


Layers of Paris love!


Ever since I got my JBS Ticket Please punch I’ve been wanting to do something like this!


More fun with punches and I love photo corners!  I used my Martha Stewart photo corner punch with black cardstock and Color Shine in gold.


Going “old school” with gold brads and more photo corner love!  I painted a fabric photo corner with Claudine Hellmuth Studio smidge of blue acrylic paint.

  1. Beautiful, I love that you saved the sugar wrapper too 🙂 So many details…and all photos with a good memory are worth scrapping regardless how good the photo is in my book 🙂 It’s super.

  2. I really like the subtle colors in the background with the pops of color up close to the photos. I think it’s great that you scrapped the imperfect photo…it’s still an important memory that you obviously cherish and the inclusion of the index print is a great idea.

  3. I adore what you’ve done with the punched edges!

  4. amazing~I love the way you used JBS. The torn edges are so clever!! Love the look!!!
