scrapbooking secret cinema


The last week of summer freedom approaches and inspiration has well and truly hit.  I am loving my holiday of adventures and photography and it turns out that working on #500snapsofsummer and curating my summer stories has made me want to scrap.  I have a layout to share today all about Secret Cinema which the man and I attended earlier this year as m birthday present.  The pictures aren't from 500 Snaps of Summer, but it has easily been one of my favourite experiences in London ever, and we had the most amazing time.  From a crafty perspective, I was really glad I had already written about this experience and matched with with photos when I blogged about it here, as this took all the decision-making out of the page, and I could just play with pretty paper knowing that the storytelling was taken care of. 



Once again, hand-cut titles make an appearance as I'm just a little tiny bit obsessed.  I tried to add a little bit of vintage flair to the design to reflect the 1930s setting of Secret Cinema, and our dress in the photo.  I knew the perfect time would arrive for that little camera charm one day.



The journalling is once again in an envelope tucked behind the photo, but very easily accessible.  There's quite a bit of it and I still like my writing to be visible without dominating.  I'm just about out of vellum envelopes which saddens me greatly.  But I'm also out of white cardstock now too, and I can't scrap without it lately, so who knows what will happen.
