  Good Neighbours & Windsor Knot Designer Series Paper

 And here’s my Sale-a-Bration project! I’m not much of a scrapbooker, but I thought it was about time I challenged myself, and so I set about designing a 12′ x 12″ scrapbook page! Applegarth was a gorgeous mid to late Victorian house in which my grandparents and my mum lived towards the end of the Second World War, in Whitstable, Kent, England.

Pat Carr January 25, 2010 at 7:43 pm

Cathy – for a card maker, you’re not a bad scrapbooker!!! Love it!! And it’s in Whitstable…….. I still have family there that have lived there for donkeys years, probably even the time your mum was there. Small world, eh? Whitstable always holds a special memory for me, apart from family, it was the very first place that I saw a double rainbow and also the first place I was stung by a bee!!

Great work Cathy, as usual!!

Julie January 25, 2010 at 8:26 pm

Love this page Cathy. Always admiring your talent.

Karen Dillon January 25, 2010 at 8:36 pm

Finally – a scrapbook page. Thank you for sharing this lovely design. I’ve added your blog to my “favourites” so please keep the pages coming.

Lynn January 25, 2010 at 8:55 pm

Love this page – you have done very well with your challenge!

Monica January 25, 2010 at 10:08 pm

What a great way to use the houses. Your scrapbook page is wonderful and the combination of paper, photos and stamps is really very good. What a great way to share your families memories with others.

cathy January 25, 2010 at 10:39 pm

Hi Pat, Unfortunately, the dear old house is long gone – it was just a shell in 1976 when mum and I went past there. My grandies lived there from the late war years until about 1960 -would love to have that house now! This is really my first “proper” attempt at scrapbooking a 12×12 page, I usually stick to 6×6′s! Can’t wait to do another page now!

cathy January 25, 2010 at 10:40 pm

Thanks, Karen – looks like I had better keep scrappin’ then! Thanks for visiting!

Danielle Daws January 25, 2010 at 11:01 pm

That’s such a great idea to use for a scrap page!

Jodene January 25, 2010 at 11:37 pm

I love this scrapbook page. The layout is very cute and lends itself to the shape and style of photos. And those little house stamps just add the perfect finish. It’s almost like the set was made just to go with the house photos. Very nice.

Terrific layout – love the colours.
