Capture Ledger Album | Ann-Marie Morris

BasicGrey | Capture

 

As someone who eats / sleeps / breathes thrifting adventures, it was only a matter of time before I documented my new favorite hobby in Capture form!

I decided to go with the 5×7″ spiral bound ledger journal since the color palette and small scale fit the vision for my theme perfectly.

For the cover, I used a handful of mini embellishments, including labels and arrows, brass studs, and a scalloped frame from the Carte Postale waterfall pack.

One of my favorite parts about the Ledger album is all of the fun journaling prompts that it contains! On the left page of this particular spread, I was able to jot down the items I seek out whenever I go thrifting. As obvious as it may seem, I’m not sure I would have recorded such facts without the help of the prompt!

I love the way that arrows add dynamism and direction to any layout, so for the left page, I turned an acetate frame die-cut upside down and tucked it behind the Snippet. A little piece of advice: don’t be afraid to flip things around and try out techniques that take products beyond their intended use. Scrapbooking is all about experimentation and documenting memories your way.

Dare I say that Candy Buttons are my favorite BG embellishment? I can’t seem to make a page (no matter how small!) without them! They’re the perfect mini pop of color for any project, especially when grouped in a visual triangle.

To maximize these fun little pockets (and clean out my wallet!), I tucked a bunch of receipts from my various shopping trips in them and quickly embellished the front with an arrow and a few alpha stickers. Simple is often best. Don’t overthink it, my friends.

 

P.S. Capture products are officially in stock! Time to get creating!

  1. what a great idea, never thought of doing one on thrifting….my wheels are spinning and i can totally see some before/after comparisons, thanks!

  2. I loved the way it allowed me to use all my favorite elements (paper, photos memorabilia) in one place without having to make traditional scrapbook pages. At first I was super dedicated (I’m going to do this every week! of every year! for the rest of my life!), but like all long-term creative endeavors, I eventually fell off the bandwagon. I started to feel that I had gotten too far behind (even though I don’t believe in that!) and “catching up” just seemed too daunting a task. I still loved the concept, but I knew I needed to find a system that work better for me.
