Lollipop Box Club | Scrapbooking

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.
