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.

Scrapbook Page: Wild at Heart

The page today resulted from the last few pieces I had left of the Hazelwood and C’est La Vie papers that I worked with last month, and I love how it came together!

WILD AT HEART

I love the memory of the photos on this page. My daughter headed off to college last November an hour away from our home. She was missing our family and her puppies on this particular day and decided to take advantage of her proximity and scoot home for a couple of hours just to say “hello!” She walked in the house with a “Surprise!” Haha!

I had three final butterflies from Hazelwood to use up, and then used the floral Hazelwood stickers as accents.

I wanted to use more of the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” phrase Thickers, and chose the “Wild” and “Heart” words. I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out an “@” symbol to turn the title into “Wild at Heart.”

I’m terrible about getting caught up in the design of a page and leaving my journaling until the end. I managed to squeeze the story in at the bottom. Phew! 🙂

Echo Park: Princess Unicorn Card

With three daughters, we have definitely gone through our fair share of Princess and Unicorn love in our household. So, of course, I couldn’t wait to create a project with the Once Upon a Time Princess collection from Echo Park Paper!

ONCE UPON A TIME UNICORN CARD

I used the Dark Purple/Light Purple Solid paper and Dream Come True paper for the base of the card. Then added a stitched scallop circle shape die cut from the Dream Castles paper. A strip of the striped Courtly Crowns paper anchors the design at the bottom.

I backed the frame die cut with the Enchanting Gowns paper before adding the chipboard unicorn and hearts.

Floral elements stickers on the right and left add a feminine touch and supply a resting spot for the “Once Upon a Time” chipboard piece.

The unicorn looks like she came right out of the storybook chipboard piece at the bottom of the card! A couple of shiny, aqua enamel dots finish it off!
