6×6 Scrapbook Page Layout {Welcome Neighbor DSP & Sweet Pea Stitched Felt}

It’s been ages since I’ve made a scrapbook page. I don’t normally make 6×6 Scrapbook Page Layouts, but I had this picture of my daughter on my desk, then I saw this cute patterned paper from Welcome Neighbor, and I just went from there. Since the page is small, I wanted the focus to be on the photo.

The 4″x4″ photo is layered onto a 4 1/4″ square of Old Olive card stock. I then took a 4 1/4″ x 2″ strip of Old Olive and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to make the scalloped edge, tucking it under the Old Olive photo mat.

In the upper corner, I added Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers and leaves, layering them with Glue Dots and attaching it to the page with a large Glue Dot. It gives the page a pop of color and since she’s looking up in that direction in the picture, it was a good place to put the flower.

I kept journaling to a minimum so the focus would be on the picture. The sentiment “Everything grows with love” is from Love Matters (retired–but has many great sayings in handwriting style font). I inked up the different parts of the stamp using the Chocolate Chip and Rose Red Markers, then stamped it onto Very Vanilla using the Stamp-a-majig to get a 2 line setup.

Next, I punched out the Very Vanilla card stock using the Curly Label Punch and sponged the edges using a mixture of Close to Cocoa Reinker and Champagne Shimmer Paint. I just add a drop of Reinker and a drop of Shimmer Paint into an old brad or button container, dip a Sponge Dauber in, and start sponging. This combo makes a really nice Bronze colored shimmery ink, which goes great with the sepia tones in the picture. I attached it to the page using Stampin Dimensionals.

That’s it–pretty simple. I think I like the 6″x 6″ size page for 1 photo layouts. I will be trying more 6″x6″ pages to see what other types of layouts work best. Thanks for stopping by today!

Jumping in a Leaf Pile Fall Scrapbook Pages

My husband took these pictures of Ella playing in the leaves last week and I had this leaf pile idea in mind ever since.

The base for both pages is 12×12 Naturals Ivory card stock. I matted the photos onto more mustard, dusty durango, and close to cocoa card stock.

The leaves are from Fall Flair (a retired hostess set), stamped in pumpkin pie, dusty durango, so saffron, creamy caramel, and close to cocoa ink.

I stamped the title in the same color inks mentioned above. The alphabet stamp I used here is called Pure and Simple lowercase (retired). I stamped the letters onto whisper white and layered it onto close to cocoa card stock. The title pieces are attached with dimensionals. I tied some Hemp Twine around some of the title pieces.

The cork letters are from my local craft store. I colored chipboard numbers with sponge daubers and creamy caramel, so saffron, and pumpkin pie ink to resemble the cork.

Autumn/Fall Scrapbook Layout

autumn copy

I think I made this page last year but never uploaded it. My daughter was only 2 months old on her first Halloween so we didn’t go trick or treating. She really wasn’t a fan of her chicken costume either! Since that season was very low key around our house, I decided to lump together Halloween and Thanksgiving, making one scrapbook page for both holidays.

The background is the retired Halloween DSP in pumpkin pie with some striping. I used the tree from Season of Friendship, stamped in chocolate chip with different color leaves, and trimmed it out. The pumpkins are from Year After Year, watercolored with pumpkin pie ink and trimmed out as well.

Across the top of the page, I used a strip of chocolate chip DSP and the letters were made using the Cuttlebug Alphabet (I don’t remember the name). At the bottom, I printed my journaling from the computer, matting it on chocolate chip card stock, and adding some Soft Subtles Buttons tied with Hemp Twine in the corner for embellishment.
