I had such a fun day playing with my scrapbooking supplies creating this collage for my husband for Father’s Day. I used one of my favorite pictures of my husband with our kids taken about 6 yeas ago…but I think it is adorably cute & timeless. Although I have a ton of scrapbooking supplies leftover from 10 years of a hard core scrapbooking habit, as well as years of teaching scrapbooking classes, I know that you can find many of these supplies at the dollar store, so not to fear if you don’t have a stash of supplies!
Here are the supplies that I used. For the base of the collage, I used an old laminated board that we had that was the perfect size, but you could use a canvas or a piece of plywood too if that is what you have. I love using recycled supplies where possible!
Don’t be afraid to add small embellishments here and there. I find even simple things like buttons can make a collage look so beautiful!
This is a fairly easy project to tackle, so don’t be afraid to try! And if you give it a try and it looks too plain…add some buttons! That’s a little trick that always works for me!

What a nice project for Father's Day, Angie!
He will love this! Maybe this year, on Father's Day you can take an updated photo of the three of them together and make a second one to display together. Thanks for another great gift idea, Angie!!
Homemade cards are some of the best…either with photos or getting the kids involved in making their own art! I'm also a fan of handprints, thumbprints, or footprints on cards. They all make great keepsakes. 🙂

Super cute he is going to love it.
Scrap booking is a definite passion of mine! This looks great, and reminds me I need to get busy on something for my own hubby!! 😉
