Central scrapbook layouts
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 22 Jun, 2016
It’s easy to get carried away with a scrapbook layout, adding papers, pictures and embellishments to a page to your heart’s content! PDT member Giorgia Rossini has kept it simple with these three stunning layouts, following a basic template to really let the photos do the talking.
Funfair page 1. Trim Geometric Kraft paper into triangles and adhere to the corners of a 12 x 12" sheet of black cardstock. Tear a sheet of printed vellum in half and stick underneath the kraft layer. 2. Cut strips of different kraft papers, distressing the edges with a blade to create texture. Adhere them on the page, overlapping each other in a rough rectangular shape. 3. Add the picture and tuck a journaling tag under it, keeping it in place with an embellished paper clip. Scatter die-cuts all over the page, using foam tape to create dimension. Decorate them with little 3D stickers.
4. Add the title directly on the picture. Outline the letters with a white gel pen to make them stand out.
Green textured layout:
1. Cut and distress angular papers from Mr Smith's Workshop to create layers. Adhere them centrally to a green textured background page. 2. Adhere your photo in the middle, making sure there’s a substantial border around it. Add a few Mr Smith’s die-cuts (such as the ‘Hello’) around the image. To finish, use geometric stickers to frame the picture, pointing arrow shapes towards the subject to draw the eye in.
Brickwork scrapbook page:
1. Cut strips of Mr Smith’s Workshop papers and distress the edges with a blade to create texture. Adhere them in the centre of the page.
2. Die cut a circular filigree frame from cream cardstock and stick to the top left-hand side of the strips. Mat the picture and some Mr Smith’s die-cuts onto rust-coloured cardstock and trim around the edges. Glue them all down, using the photo as a reference.
3. Add the title, made from alphabet thicker stickers, to the bottom of the photo. Decorate with tiny stickers and gemstones to finish.
