The Lotus Garden Layout

It’s been a wonderful few days here in Ontario – no A/C needed in the house and pleasant outside…..another thunderstorm and rain showers predicted for tomorrow though.

I thought I’d mix things up a bit and post a scrapbook layout of a visit we made to ponds filled with ponds of lotus flowers – awesome visit.

This is a sample of hybrid scrapbooking. The photos were added to a scrapbook template on Photoshop – I think these ones came from IPiccy – and I printed them off at home on photo paper. Then they were mounted on the light coloured background paper. The journaling was computer generated. All the embellishments are peel-offs from Paper Wishes. I peeled them off; laid them on the colour of cardstock I wanted underneath and then cut around them.

 Here are the individual pages.

That’s all for a lovely summer day on July 26, 2017.

If it doesn’t work, please leave a comment and let me know so I fix it. Thanks.


  1. Such lovely pictures and lovely layout Violet... I'am curious.. Have you been printing your own photos out for a long time?? I was wondering how they are holding up... any fading or blurring?? Hugs! deb

  2. I have sent a personal email to the above person regarding
    her questions but I thought I would answer it here as well.

    I’ve been printing some of my photos at home for years and years – started with a series of Canon printers; then a Kodak; then HP (hated it) and now an Epson ET-2550 – my all time favourite. None of my photos have faded or deteriated at all. I get some 4x6 photos printed at Wal-Mart; some I do here at home; and the hybrid scrapbook layouts I always print at home.
