A second project I did this month for Kelly Purkey Shop was a page documenting “now and then” using the TN kit with the same name.
Years ago, (pre-motherhood and pre-scrapbooking!), I was very much into working out and doing triathlons. It was not unusual for me to do double workouts during the weekday (in addition to an 8-hour work day!) and then spend 6 hours on a bike during the weekend. I loved it, but it was all-consuming, and I was just a little obsessed.
Since I didn’t scrapbook at all during my triathlon years, I wanted to capture a little snapshot of those years. The Now & Then TN kit was perfect for this!
I started by selecting 2 photos from the past and 2 current photos that I could use for my “now” and “then” photos. I love the retro way Instax photos look and decided to print the photos using my Instax printer. I then wrote the location + year on the bottom of the photos.
After pasting the photos onto the two TN pages, I got to work on embellishing the spread. I stamped the sentiments from the Now & Then stamp set over some labels and papers, and then adhered them on.
Some journaling on both pages about life “now” and “then” and my spread was complete!
