Documenting with ephemera…

Remember when…we used to scrapbook ALL the photos on one layout?  And when we saved all the bits and pieces from an event to include on that page?  If you’re a scrapbooker who still does…then my job here is done.

But if you’re like me and you’ve gotten away from the 2-page, memento-laden layouts, then this might be something of a walk down memory lane!  At least the ephemera part.

visit-redRecently we traveled to Utah to visit our youngest son and watch him play hockey in a charity tournament.  Guns vs Hoses.  Because he works in Corrections, he plays with and for the Guns side.  Besides those games, we watched an ECHL game (exciting!!), took a gondola ride up the mountain for lunch, sat and talked and generally caught up.  Cleaning out my purse after returning home, I found several pieces that I knew would help tell the story of our quick weekend trip.


For the purposes of incorporating this ephemera, I fell back on the ever-reliable grid design for the page.  I used my 2″ square punch to cut portions from the hockey ticket and flight boarding pass.  Including them also establishes the dates and times of this event, so I don’t need to worry about adding them elsewhere.  And happily, the gondola pass was close enough in size to fit within the grid too.


I used machine stitching lines to further emphasize the grid design.  I also used some BoBunny Noteworthy die cuts, stickers from Simple Stories Bloom & Grow, wood veneer from Kaisercraft, a Bella Boulevard Illustrated Faith enamel heart and word and phrase stickers from Cosmo Cricket and Authentique.
