Hello my friends!
It feels like a good day to scrapbook, doesn't it?
Well, that's fantastic because scrapbooking is just what we're about to do. . .
I'm going to show you how to create this layout in just a few easy steps.
Yours will look similar, but not exact as you'll be using your own supplies.
To make it, you'll need:
one piece of 12"x 12" cardstock
one piece of 11 1/2"x 11 1/2" pattern paper in a subtle print
one piece of pattern paper measuring 2 1/2" x 12"
two strips of pattern paper or decorative tape measuring 1/4"x 12"
letter stickers for the title
three horizontal photos
10-14 embellishments of varying sizes
To begin, place the 11 1/2"x 11 1/2" piece of pattern paper on the center of the cardstock.
Trim your three photos to 5"x 3 1/2".
Adhere them in a column about 1" from the left edge of the pattern paper.
Leave a bit of space in between them.
These are my parents- aren't they cute?
Now place your strip of pattern paper measuring 2 1/2" x 12" a little more than an inch
from the right edge of the pattern paper.
On either side of that strip, add your 1/4" strips of pattern paper or decorative tape.
Using your letter stickers, place your title vertically on the strip of pattern paper.
I used larger letters since I had a short title.
My letter stickers were plain black, so I added three tiny flowers to the 0, A, and S.
Now we'll add the rest of the embellishments in embellishment clusters on each photo.
Use 3-4 embellishments in each cluster.
Here's how I did mine.
At the bottom right corner of the top photo, I layered two flowers and a small tag that says,
Savor the moment. I added a sparkly heart in the center of the top flower.
On the bottom left corner of the middle photo, I placed a medium size flower and overlapped the edge of it with a pre-printed ticket. Then I put a glittery heart in the center and added a silver bird.
On the bottom photo, I used a cloud punch and overlapped it with another pre-printed ticket.
Then I added another sparkly heart.
Embellishment clusters are pretty easy. The main thing is that you want to overlap
each item to make them all look unified.
Did you notice that I didn't add any journaling? That's because all I was going to say was that my parents celebrated their 30th anniversary. I figure the title covered that.:)
It is very rare for me to not have journaling on a layout- it just doesn't feel right to me.
If you'd like to add journaling, place it in the lower left corner of the layout
slightly overlapping the photo.
I sure appreciate you scrapping with me! See you every other Wednesday for a new layout tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Oh give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
