Are you looking for a way to brighten up a corner of a room with holiday cheer? Or maybe you need a handmade gift idea for someone who could use some additional Christmas spirit?
Christmas banners to the rescue! Banners are perfect for adding to a mantle, banister, sideboard, window, treat table, and more! I created this Jingle All the Way Banner for the Scrapbook.com Holiday Inspiration Series on their YouTube channel and wanted to share it here with you today!
Watch as I take you through my step-by-step batch process for creating focal point images by selecting a main image, adding in supporting images, connecting them all together with a shape, and then adding additional layers underneath. We start from the image to the front and work our way back to the base layer.
These concepts can be used for anything and can be applied to any type of collection! Try this process for creating a batch of cards, tags, embellishment clusters for a layout, gift bags, and more! Watch the video below!
Helloooo! Happy Easter to you! It’s been a while since I’ve created something that I can share publicly here on my blog, but I’m happy to say that I have an Easter layout to share with you today using the adorable Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray collection!
Scrapbooking has been my way of coping with this crazy, coronavirus time warp of a Twilight Zone we are all living in right now and I’m so grateful for how therapeutic it feels. I will try and find time to share everything I have been making, but I will definitely share my favorites. 🙂
These are some individual shots I took of my kids on Easter Sunday four years ago. It’s crazy how much my kids have changed since then! Wow!
I opted to place each photo in white cardstock frames that I cut using my Silhouette die cutting machine. I placed an additional layer of patterned paper and small strips of washi tape behind some of the photos, and wrapped others with twine.
I placed the photos in a grid on the page, and filled the two ’empty’ frames with elements from the collection. I also stitched around these frames to add texture and popped them up with foam tape for depth.
I used the ’empty’ frame in the bottom row as a spot for a springtime scene and my title. I love how the yellow Decorative Brad adds a bit of detail to the sun die cut (Bits & Pieces)!
My family, like yours, won’t be dressing up for church this Easter Sunday, but we will still think about the beautiful reason for this holiday, our brother and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love Him! I’m always grateful for Him and his loving sacrifice for each and every one of us.
Wishing you and yours peace and sunshine this Easter!
This class combines all of my favorite things; scrapbooking, papercrafting, gift ideas, parties, holidays, and seasons! I poured my heart and soul into this project with the hope that it will inspire YOU to get creative, too!
Four years ago my family checked off a bucket list item when we took our summer vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We stayed in a beach house and/ spent our days playing in the ocean, collecting shells, and eating good food. It was amazing! The Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies collection, with its sunkissed vibe, was perfect for scrapbooking all of the beach photos I took while we were there!
I used dies from my stash to compliment the Sun die cut at the top of the page. I used foam tape to add a couple of leaf stickers and a phrase from the Combo Sticker Sheet.
This embellishment cluster on the right page was a lot of fun to create. I love combining die cuts in an “L” shape to accent the corner of my photos. I also added another die cut word to this side, as well, accenting it with the hexagon umbrella shapes from the collection, phrase stickers (4×6 Stickers), and that super-cute, polaroid camera sticker!
I love how beachy this collection feels! It was the perfect way to document our beach adventure on the East Coast!
