Scrapbook Process Video: Birthday Lunch Date

While I am not a coffee drinker, I couldn’t WAIT to play with the new Echo Park Paper Coffee collection. Just look at the beautiful rich colors and gorgeous florals! Swoon!

Today’s page features this amazing collection and I have a process video to go with it. You can watch and hear about my design decisions below. Or … if you’d prefer … you can just scroll down to the still shots and supply list at the bottom of this post. Either way, I hope you find some inspiration! 🙂

BIRTHDAY LUNCH DATE

.

I created my own embellishments for this page using the Coffee 6×6 Paper Pad, gold foil paper, and butterfly punches from my stash.

Do you love the florals in this collection as much as I do? I fussy cut clusters from both the 4×4 Journaling Cards Paper (the cluster by the photos), as well as from the Wake Up and Smell the Flowers Paper (Buy two of this one, because you are going to love the gingham side just as much!). The peach floral paper is called I Like Big Cups (haha! Cute name!).

I love the way the gold mist looks on the buffalo check of the 4×6 Journaling Cards Paper!

I used Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, which is hard to find these days. But the Bronze Tim Holtz mist looks like a good one! The reviews at Scrapbook.com says it is more of a gold color than a bronze color … and after watching the video on the product page, I think they are right!

If you can’t find tiny letter stickers that match your page in your stash, try creating your own like I did here. I simply used a mini alphabet stamp set along with a circle punch. It worked great! I definitely need to do this more often!

The small photo frame, letter board layer piece (behind the larger photo), and the curvy piece behind the right side of the flowers all come from the Coffee Ephemera pack.

More Stashbusting with PageMaps Sketches: Part 1

Working with the monthly sketches at PageMaps always puts me in the mood to do some stashbusting. I’m back today and tomorrow with a four more pages I created using the sketches this month.

BIRTHDAY BASH

This time I used the two-page sketch along with the Bella Blvd. Mind Your Manners collection to scrapbook my daughter’s 10th birthday party.

The pictures are dark and grainy and some are a bit blurry, but these cute papers brighten them right up!

I used the letter stickers for this collection to build the title. There was an odd space to the right of the word “bash” afterwards. My simple fix was to punch three hearts and just line them up in a row to fill up the space.

I added a few more punched hearts around the page to tie them in with the title.

This next page was a simple one and came together quickly using the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection. I love that!

LAST DAY

I decided to do a small title on this layout to stay true to the sketch, but honestly, it feels a bit naked to me. Haha! I’m wondering if I should have done a LARGE and in charge title above the tags/photos. I’m probably over-analyzing it, though. *giggle* And it’s good to try something new once in awhile, right?

I LOVE cloud dies! They are the perfect “filler” for an empty spot. These ones are extra cute with their faux stitching and flat bottoms! I bought them from AliExpress a looong time ago … but, I would highly suggest adding some cloud dies to your stash if you don’t have any. ❤

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing me dig into my stash a bit and maybe inspired you to tackle a collection you own that could use a little crafting love. *wink*

Have a great day!

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!

Simple Stories: Boys Rule

It’s rare that you find a collection for boys that can span all the way from when they are toddlers to teens and the Simple Stories Lil’ Dude collection does just that! Today I have a birthday layout to share with you using this darling new collection.

The 4×4 Elements paper played a big role in this design. I not only used one of the squares for my title …

… but also as page elements scattered below the title. Here you can see where I fussy-cut the speech bubbles from another one of the 4×4 Elements, as well as how I punched out the circle journaling block.

I also punched the “It’s a Boys World” from the 3×4 Elements paper to use as a page accent.

At the top of the page, I used a smaller circle punch to punch the “So Rad” circle from the 2×2 Elements paper.

After I placed the larger pieces, I came back in with the die cuts from the Bits & PIeces pack and the puffy stickers to fill in the spaces.

I love how this design grabs your attention at the top of the page with the title and the photos and then leads your eye down the “waterfall” of page elements through the journaling and then finally ending on the photo at the bottom of the layout.
