Corrugated cardboard

I used corrugated cardboard for the first time for this layout. I even applied a scenic route rub on to it and it worked quite well. I used a jelly roll pen to apply it, the rounded cap part so that it didn’t go down into the ribs of the cardboard.

I distressed the edges, and inked of course, and even did some stitching too.  This is what it looks like.

And here is a close up of the edge of the cardboard, the notepaper and the tag.

This was done for a challenge issued by Lisa Damrosch at BPS.


Another page done.

Did this one for a challenge at Scrapshotz. The challenge was to use waves or have waves in the picture. Well these fit the bill.

These were taken in 2002 in Prince George. We had driven that day from Prince Rupert, which was quite  a long drive for us. The evening was nice and warm so the kids jumped in the pool, cooled off then we had a nice campfire.  Great evening.

One day I’ll be done all these vacation pics, but I’m a page closer now! Thanks to Pagemaps for the sketch this was based on.
