Teddy Bear Hugs

On a trip to Paris, my husband brought this super cute Hello Kitty card home for me.  Roughly translated, it means “You are my teddy bear”.  I thought it was so sweet, and I knew I just had to scrap it.

This isn’t my usual scrapbooking style, but then again, I don’t usually scrap pages without any pictures.

I chose the colors to match the pink and red in the card, adding a few browns for contrast.  I hand cut the arrow out, then attached it to red cardstock, which I then cut to outline the arrow.  I scrounged through my little tin of embelishments, picking out brads, buttons ribbons and other findings that matched my color scheme.  Most of them actually came from the dollar store.  The big white bow is a gift wrap bow that my husband had stuck to the envelope when he gave me the card.

The little scraps of paper that make up the borders were the most fun to create.  I cut little strips in various colours, and then trimmed them with edge punches and with decorative scissors.

How do you scrap memorabilia?  Tell me in the comments section, and leave a link.
