I still collect tickets, maps and other ephermas from our trips, and I include a few of them in some of my layouts - very "old school" scrapping, but it reminds me of why I scrap: to preserve the memories (Side note: I admit I love buying new scrap stuff, too).
In the layout below, the bottom "patterned paper" is a certificate from the Jameson Destillery in Dublin, Irland, a certificate which proves I'm a "Qualified Whiskey Taster". Like I need a certificate to prove it *lol*
|Top paper & journaling page: unknown. Epoxy stickers, cork stickers, vellum stickers, washi & brads: Freckled Fawn.|
The design comes from this fun sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap ("Inspired by" Sketch #10)
Do you include non-scrappy items in your layouts, or have you ever done it?
