Scrapbooking | Memories (Palmer, Alaska)

I've used the Heartfelt Creations paper collections for a variety of cards over the past few years; however, I had not used them for scrapbook pages. They are beautiful papers, so I decided to challenge myself to create a layout kit when our local scrapbook store owner mentioned that she had several pads of the Backyard Blossoms Collection.

These collections contain lots of cut-apart page with a variety of sizes (6x6, 3x4, 4x4, etc) as well as tags and tickets and banners and strips. It probably won't come as a surprise that I was drawn to the yellow background paper with the spray of flowers in the bottom right corner!  I chose a green background paper for the other page and then cut additional pieces with the same corner flower image. 

I wanted to emphasize those beautiful flowers, so I used Unicorn Stickles to add dimension and sparkle to the flower centers and a clear Wink of Stella pen to add shimmer to the petals.

I was inspired to create this page by my pictures from our day in Palmer, Alaska, in 2018. I resized and printed my photos here at home. This page holds eleven photos! These beautiful papers are perfect for showcasing the garden outside the Palmer Visitor Center, don't you think?

This Memories 2-Page Layout Kit is available at Personal Scrapbook in Allen, Texas, while supplies last. Call the store at 972.351.8717 to reserve your kit for pickup or shipping.


  1. Beautiful papers to work with. Your finished layout is one I would like to scrap lift. I have often thought about printing photos at home, now I during this time, I wish I had acted on (col). Your varying sizes of photos creates movement on the page of looking at the photos.

  2. So lovely! Those pretty papers work beautifully with your photos! Having just finished watching Win the Wilderness Alaska on the BBC iPlayer, a visit there is now on our wish list.

  3. Your photos couldn't be more perfect for these beautiful papers! I was amazed when we were in Alaska how enormous the flowers were due to all the sunlight during the summer.

  4. What very lovely photos, in a perfect page setting! Very creative to add shimmer and sparkle too. Your outfit is just right for the layout :).


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
