Scrappin’ to the Oldies


So those of you who read my blog regularly know that we recently attended a 70s bowling night. Well, how could I not scrap that? So, here is the little gem….and it was super easy!


I started with a piece of 12×12 So Saffron cardstock and matted each photo on Chocolate Chip.

I added 2 layers of Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock (one along the top 2/3 and one along the bottom 2/3). I then adhered the photos onto the page.

I punched out various circles in More Mustard, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip and adhered them to the lower right and upper left hand corners of the page.


Lastly, I used some of our sticky cut letters/numbers and adhered “70” to the top Pumpkin Pie strip and added some chunky silver glitter (a la disco ball). I then added an ‘s’ from Taffy Alphabet to read “70s”. I then stamped “bowling night” in Chocolate Chip ink with my Rough Edges alphabet.

I thought I was done at this point but realized that I just got this great new set called Smarty Pants and I HAD to use the phrase “You are never too old to do goofy stuff”. I stamped it in coordinating ink colours and cut it out before adhering to the page.

This was great fun to make and a great memory to have! Can you smell the shag rug?
