The Haircut.


I created one 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page using a photo of my husband as a little boy. My inspiration was “Douglas at 3” by Daphne Matthews. The clip-art is from a Afrikaans book called  “SUS EN DAAN“, a Silwerboom-series , ‘n prentjieboek vir kleuters (A picture book for Preschoolers) which I got from  J JANSE VAN RENSBURG. The title was made with grommets and punched circles with stamped letters. I made the barber-shop sign in Microsoft word. I scanned the page in four parts with an Epson scanner/printer and then joined them in Adobe Photoshop.


My inspiration for the key tag was “Stippled tag card” from a Stamping & Paper-craft magazine, which includes the technique. The hidden tags include more information about the photo.


Making the tags with some of the supplies: Stippling brush, Text stamp from Premo Stamplets – Classic Designs – Sculpey Rubber Stamping Kit, watch wood mounted rubber-stamp, tags, sticky notes (used as masks) Tim Holtz vintage Distress ink-pad, ink-pads and key wood mounted rubber-stamp.


The Toy tag was made using the same technique as the Key tag. The supplies were toys wood mounted rubber-stamp, sundae wood mounted rubber-stamp by Vap! Scrap, a brad, alphabet stamp and string.


The background pattern is from a Collage kit “Keepsake Box” from Westrim crafts and has clip-art of clippers.


Some of the possible supplies and inspiration which I gathered before I started, in a 13″x 13″  Iris® Scrapbook Case.


Some of the other supplies I used in the layout were buttons, “hand-stamped” wood mounted rubber-stamp by Stampin up!, typewriter alphabet wood mounted rubber-stamp by Studio G, a playing card, butcher’s cord, brads, card-stock, paper, photo mounting squares, Handmade wood-mounted stamp from PSX California, grommets, etc.


Be patient the slide show is slow and without sound.

  1. Your imagination is boundless, and the results are stunning. I intend to introduce the grandkids to Sus en Daan! It is charming. Young R seems to have a natural aptitude for Afrikaans.
