Echo Park Paper: All the Trimmings!

Just like you trim the tree with ornaments each year … why not trim your scrapbook layout with them, too! Hi, Everyone! I’m back with a holiday page using the Echo Park Paper Celebrate Christmas collection.

I wanted to do something extra special on this page and when I saw the ornaments of the Deck the Halls paper I just knew I had to cut them out and “hang” them from the top of my layout.
I cut them out with a pair of fine-tipped scissors and then used white crochet twine attached to the back to make them look like they are dangling from the top edge of the page. I few of the ornaments are adorned with white twine bows and holly leaves die cut from the green shades of the Coordinating Solid Papers using the Merry Christmas Holly Die Set.

Santa himself is declaring a “Merry Christmas” at the bottom of this page. The Merry Christmas title was also created using the Merry Christmas Holly Die Set. Additional Chipboard Accents and Stickers accent the center line in between the two photos.

Santa looked lonely all by himself, so I added a pair of birds (sticker and chipboard) to the right of the banner title to keep him company!

The black enamel dots placed here-and-there around the page add the extra special touch!

Carta Bella Paper: Christmas Eve Scrapbook Page

If there is one thing that gets me excited for Christmas each year, it is seeing the new Christmas collections by Echo Park Paper and Carta Bella Paper! The Carta Bella Paper Christmas collection was the perfect match for this photo of my kids sporting their Christmas jammies last Christmas Eve.

I used the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper for the background of this page. I LOVE this pattern! I wanted it to fade out a little bit around the page elements, so I used my finger to smudge white gesso around the paper layers, but left the outer edges uncovered.

I used the “Christmas” letter stickers from the Sticker Sheet combined with a die cut “merry” word for the title. The title is anchored by strips of patterned paper cut from the Gift Tags paper (green text pattern) and the Border Strips paper. I also added a few die cut snowflakes (Celebrate Christmas – Christmas Day Snow Die Set) accented with the decorative brads.

I added my journaling to a block cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper and then decorated the spaces to the left and below with Chipboard Accents, a die cut stocking (Santa Stocking Die Set), and Stickers.
(Sidenote: The packaging for the Santa Stocking Die Set doesn’t show a piece to create the cuff of the stocking, but it does actually come with one … so three dies total … just in case you were wondering! 🙂 )

Simple Stories: Birthday Layout with the Bloom Collection

I’m back with another scrapbook page. This time I have a girly, birthday layout featuring the Simple Stories Bloom collection!

If you’re having a hard time deciding which patterned paper to cut into first, why not cut a piece from ALL of them and layer them together for a fun, textural photo mat? That’s what I did on today’s page. Take a closer look below!

After matting my photo, I further framed it by capping it along the top and bottom with my title. I split the phrase, placing one word on top of the picture and the other on the bottom. I then added a black cardstock circle to the right corner along with heart die cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack to frame it even further.

At the bottom of the page, I used the fancy journaling block cut from the 4×6 Elements Paper. Next, I fussy-cut lots and lots of flowers from the Today’s the Day paper and the Inspired paper to tuck behind each element of the design. This married everything together and added a fresh, floral feel!

The result is a sweet birthday page perfect for any girl in your life … maybe even a birthday page about yourself!

American Crafts: Summer Vacation Memories with Field Notes

School is back in session, but my mind is on all of the fun our family had this past summer. We were able to cross off one of my bucket list items with a visit to the Oregon coast. It was wonderful!
The bright colors and patterns of the Vicki Boutin Field Notes collection by American Crafts remind me of our Oregon vacation and the colorful Glass Shop we visited while we were there. It was the perfect choice to scrapbook these photos!

I chose to use a neutral Kraft cardstock background for this page, which allowed the colors and patterns of the One of a Kind Paper and Flower Ephemera Die Cuts to really POP! The black accents and stamping punctuates all of the colors as well.

I love all of the horizontal phrases and border elements included in the Escape the Ordinary Gold Foil Chipboard Stickers … they were perfect for the marrying photos together along the seam and filling in odd spaces around the page design.

I cut the black banner chipboard banner in half using half across the phrase sticker in between the photos and the other half at the bottom of the page. The zig zag shape adds interest to the page and the black color grounds the other elements and keeps your eye moving through the different portions of the layout.

The stamps have got to be my favorite part of this paper collection! They were so much fun to use and really helped to bring in the patterns that we saw in the art that we saw on our visit to the glass studio.
