I don't make nearly as many layouts as I used to, so I decided to dabble a bit. Creating scrapbook layouts really are so fulfilling to me and I plan to create many more this month. I pulled out products that spoke to me first and searched for a coordinating photo. I know that many designers work in the opposite direction. They start with the fun photo and coordinate around that. I love creating that way as well..there is no right and wrong way and everyone can scrapbook, seriously. So, if you are new to it, maybe you could start with a 6 x 6 size and work your way up to 12 x 12.
Jenni Bowlin: Rhinestone Buttons, Black
Maya Road: Trinket Pins, Vintage Pearl
I started out with the decision that I would create a "frame" for my small photo to give it more of an impact. Inchies are perfect tiles that can easily be customized to coordinate with any project, plus they add dimension.
I added a touch of glitter with a glitter pen, and before it could set, I rubbed it around with my finger, the result is subtle, but sweet in person.
I will go back and add my title and journal at a later time. This s a photo of my Mom, who is dear to me, so I will keep the details private. I hope that I have encouraged you to create a scrapbook page.
Have you thought about creating pages as a gift. leave a frame for a photo, include letter stickers, a journal block and pen maybe? You could add to their album through the year and have them "fill in the blanks"
Thanks for stopping by :)
