Hey crafty friends! Welcome back for another project. This time I created a couples scrapbook layout using a baby collection. I wanted to show you to think outside the collection name or theme to create awesome pages.
It was the secret not secret kit club scrap party this weekend and one of the challenges was to scrap a member. This month was Laura Alberts and I found her on Instagram at takingascenicroute. The layout I chose was a couples one and focused her photo and embellishments in the upper left corner.
The collection I chose to work with was Bella Blvd’s Sweet Baby Girl. I had this out on my desk and figured using it would be a challenge. I took the more neutral patterns from the collection (i.e.: not ones with princess frogs or cute teddy bears) on them and got to work.
I had to be creative with the embellishments since the items in the kit were very theme specific. The embellishments I chose were some neutral items I keep like hearts, stars and sequins so I could reach for those. Some of the phrases stickers from the kit even worked.
I think the thing I am most proud of is the tag that is sticking out from the left side of my photo. It is a tag that I used a water brush and a gelato on. Since I’m not a mixed media guru I was really happy that I thought to use the product that way. I didn’t use any primer on my tag before and by using just a bit of water I didn’t have very much warping. Any I did encounter was rectified when I adhered it down to my page.
So what do you think of my scrap lift? Did I do Laura’s page justice? What things do you look for when scrap lifting someone?
