Heart 2 Heart Jan 5 Challenge - Old Is New

I have not done any scrapbook pages since 2001 as my daughter acquired a new camera and she did the scrapbook pages going forward while I turned to photo albums on Snapfish.  So, I thought this would be a good challenge for me, This is the page I completed for the first Heart 2 Heart Challenge in 2015 - Old is New.   January is my first time playing here at Heart 2 Heart, but this is my second challenge submitted. 

My project was to re-do a scrapbook page that I scrapped back in 2001 (Old) with design techniques (New) using CTMH papers.    Below is a picture of the Old Scrapbook 8 1/2 x 11 Page, left-hand side.  I chose Footloose PaperPak for my background, paper reminded me of swirling winds, which fit the picture.  Then I used a printed paper, I believe, from Free to Be Me.  I cut out the background paper on the old layout, did some changing of the Canyon frame, added new cut-outs from Cricut Artbooking using the Dimensional Elements Banners. As far as the photos they stayed intact as they were on the old page.  The second picture of the New page is a close-up of the Old technique I used on my Grand Canyon photo, whereby I used two photographs, cutting the foreground out and then glued on top of the full panoramic picture...nice dimensional affect which I used in many of my photo pages. 

Now that I completed this old scrapbook page, I will do the second page of the Grand Canyon on the right-side of photo above, and who knows maybe I'll become a scrapbook fanatic.  I still have a lot of photos that I could scrap, after all I have at least 50 years of pictures.

Your original page was nice but I like the new one on 12 X 12 paper better! I look back at my old pages and can't believe how much scrapbooking has changed. We add so much more detail now thanks to the Cricut :-)
