Nelson Falls

We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own. You will find the Links to the others participating below…..I hope you enjoy!

For my page I decided to use the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, Stippled Roses Dies & Foursquare Decorative Masks from 2023-24 Stampin’ Up!® Annual & Jan- Apr 2024 Mini Catalogues.

Scrapbook page created using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and Foursquare Decorative Masks. Photo taken at Nelson Falls TAS.

How I created my page…


I only had one photo, 4 x 6″ to use for this lay out so to make it look a little bigger the photo was matted and then a second mat was off set to create a larger solid image.


I wanted this page to look a bit ‘grunge’… or ‘natural/earthy’.

Using Pebble Path Ink, Foursquare Decorative Masks and Blending Brushes I add ink to two corners of my Crumb Cake 12 x12″ Cardstock. I then went around the edges of the cardstock with both Pebble Path and Mossy Meadow Ink.

With the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder, Crumb Cake & Pecan Pie Cardstock cut the tree rings, one set from each colour. The Crumb Cake rings are cut down with the smaller die. These are then layered to create a two tone Tree Ring.

Die cut branches in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive from the Tree Ring Dies. I also added some Pebble Path die cuts, cut using the Stippled Roses Dies. These dies are lighter and just add some softness to the lay out.

I then added tree rings and branches from under the photo, 3 at the bottom corner and 1 from the top corner.

The title ‘ Nelson Falls’ was created with the Mini Alphabet Dies. This alphabet die is one piece die, Add a sheet of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the cardstock and run through the Cut & Embossing Machine. After taking out the letters required, the extra were put into a cello bag so can be used if required at a latter time.


My jounaling for this layout is very simple…usually when you journal, it’s wise to think about when, were and who your photo is about. Or any story that maybe attached to your photo.

‘We arrived at Nelson Falls late in the afternoon, so camped along the side of the Lyell Highway. So we could take photos in a better light the following day’

This was a bit scary as the Highway went through the National Park with thick trees either side of the road. Also there was only a small parking area and our camper wasn’t very big. But it was worth it, the photo is amazing. This photo was taken approx. 30 years ago and this is the second time I’m scrapping them….that’s another story for another day.
