Queen & Co: Baptism Dress

Creating a Soft Tone-on-Tone Textured Look with Flowers

For today’s page, I wanted to use a simple and soft color palette. To keep it from feeling boring, I added in lots of texture with tone-on-tone floral embellishments by Queen & Company.

This page has a monochromatic feel about it, but when you take another look you realize that there is actually quite a bit of color. The colors are softened by all of the white embellishments layered on top of the patterned papers.

At the top of the photos I placed a cluster of Simple Stories Faith stickers anchored by two white doilies. The white Pom flower mimics the softness of the doilies, but the clear Sunflower and white Sparklers, keep things interesting and dimensional.

Next to the title is a large, fussy-cut floral paper piece that I cut from one of the 4×6 Horizontal Cards. I added dimension to the big flower with a button, and red Iridescent Pearls … placing the embellishments right on top of the printed design.

Around the floral piece, I added several white floral embellishments. This helps to make the flowers the focal point for the page and gives this area lots of interest. The white Pom Flowers again give softness, while the white Sparklers and clear Sunflowers give dimension and reflect the light.

Silver Skinny Glitter Tape at the top and bottom of the photo strip catch your eye, leading it through the page from the title and journaling on the left side over to the photos on the right side.

By using tone-on-tone white embellishments throughout the design of this page we are giving the eye a reason to linger. The colors blend with one another, but the varied textures make us pause and take in the details.
Why not give this approach a try on your next page? Use embellishments to give your pre-printed page elements more dimension, and then add more pieces to keep your eye lingering on the textured details.

Queen & Co: BYU BASKET

Roses are Red, Posies are BLUE — Using a Single Color for All of Your Page Embellishments …

Last year when my daughter graduated from high school, her work put together a gift basket for her featuring the colors of the college she would be attending the next year. All the treats they included inside were blue and white. It was so cute, and really made her feel special and loved.
As I went to scrapbook this memory, I couldn’t help but use all kinds of BLUE Queen and Company embellishments on this page … and the main focus here are the adorable blue iridescent flowers!

I wanted the iridescent flowers to have a bit more presence so I layered them on top of blue punched flowers.

I also added green punched leaves using the Festive Flower Builder Punch by Stampin’ Up.

I gave the photo the “blue-treatment” by tying a blue/white baker’s twine bow around the bottom …

… and adding Blue Dot Glitter Tape to the top!

Another bit of Blue Dot Glitter Tape at the bottom of the page keeps your eye moving through the layout design.

Next time you create a page, see if there is one color you can pull out to use for all of your embellishments. It will help to tie your design together and create a cohesive look.

Today I am featuring the adorable Various patterns of Queen & Co. washi tapes as a main decorative element on my page.
TOMATO PLANT
I love the rainbow of colors available in the washi tapes. I thought it would be fun to use the red and green washi tapes about my daughter and a tomato plant she was given as a gift from a lady in our neighborhood.

I placed a strip of the Green Stripe Washi Tape at the top of the page, overlapping it slightly off the page so that it appears a little more narrow.
I had these fabric tomato stickers in my stash that were perfect to use on this layout, but they needed some fancying up! I added some punched leaves, the adorably fluffy, White Pom Flowers, and Iridescent Red Pearls as accents.

I typed my journaling up on the computer and then placed it inside this bookplate from my stash. the Red Rivets “hold” the bookplate in place.

I wrapped my two photos several times with a length of Red Sparkle String and then tied the string in a bow.
In the bottom right corner of the photos I added more fabric tomato stickers, punched leaves, White Pom Flowers, and Iridescent Red Pearls.

I didn’t have a lot of journaling for this page, so I decided to fill the bottom half of the layout with a fun design element. I used lengths of washi tape in the the way you would use ribbon, threading them through each end of a metal bookplate, folding the end over, and then “anchoring” the washi tape to the bookplate with a red or green rivet. I used mini pinking shears to cut the ends of the washi tape to give it a bit of a torn/jaggedy edge.

I love all of the patterns of the washi tape! It’s my favorite part of this page!

Queen & Co: All Things Glitter, Sparkle, & Shine

Hi, Everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. I have been MIA for about a week as I have been working on some company deadlines … the good news is, that means I will have lots to share with you in the coming weeks as I’m able to share each of those projects! Yay!
Today I have my latest page to share with you that I created for Queen & Company.
I am really in love with the striated look of the Gold Lines Glitter Tape (these photos just do NOT do it justice. It’s so cool!) and knew it would be the perfect accent to go with the collection I wanted to use on this next layout.
HELLO
Jana Eubank Queen & Co Hello Layout 1 600
I used the tape to secure my photo to the page and then tucked a longer piece as a layer behind my papers.

The title die cut I used had a faux, pre-printed piece of tape at the top … to give it more life and help it stand out a bit, I layered the Gold Lines Glitter Tape behind it, as well.

I added White Pinwheels around this page for a bit of sparkle and accented the die cut tags with blue Sparkle String.

The shimmer and shine from the tape, pinwheels, and sparkle string really help to add warmth and life to this page!
