Hello Love

I am scrapbooking so much lately that it’s hard for me to keep the blog current. Here’s one of my recent pages.

Hello Love Brunch

The photo is of me and my parents. I love it because I was trying to make sure all three of us would be in the selfie. So our amused expressions are genuine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I struggle when it comes to using cream-based patterned paper. I simply don’t like it as much as white-based paper. However, I have accumulated some in paper pads and want to use them. The colors in the photo seemed perfect for Maggie Holmes collections, and I used a lot of her paper and ephemera on this layout.
  • Speaking of ephemera, I used some vellum ephemera. In some cases, I ran it through my Xyron, attached it to white cardstock, and then cut it out to use on the layout. This kept those pieces from blending in too much into the background. Other vellum I left alone to add variety.
  • I used a sketch from this class.

To find out more about how I created this page, check out my process video.

Thank you for watching. I’ll be back again soon!
