Hi folks, Laura here with a scrapbook layout to share.
It had been a while since I last scrapped and looking through the entire kit was a bit overwhelming. I got over this by picking out just a few bits that I loved the most (shh, don’t tell the other bits I said that!) I grabbed a few of the papers, the Bramble Fox camera and the stickers. I knew that would give me a good base to build upon. I chopped up the cut apart card and picked out a couple of die cuts. This gave me focal words and summery vibes to add to my base. I picked out a summery photo of my neph wearing sunglasses and started playing.
I’m moving towards working on A4 for my main scrapbook layouts or A5 for my scraptherapy style layouts. I have run out of room for 12x12 albums plus they are so expensive and hard to find in the UK. A4 albums are much easier to source and a fraction of the price. All that to say that I started with an A4 sheet of white cardstock. I had a grid design forming in my mind, each of the pieces of the kit that I had selected to use in their own spot all mounted on top of the ombre paper.
I took a little bit of shuffling to work out the best way of fitting them together. I used the peach tissue paper that the kit was wrapped in as layers behind most of the elements. I used the blue dot tissue paper behind the perspextive camera and camera sticker. To make sure the main focus was on the photo I added two layers of tissue, one in each colour. I mounted the ombre paper on to the white card with an equal border to the left, right and top. I then measured out a strip of the wave paper to leave that same border at the bottom of the page. Before I started gluing things down, I added some sunshine yellow ink splashes. I then adhered my pieces in place and finished off with a few sequins. I’ve added my journalling after taking the photos.
