Look Up & Breathe Layout

I love all the products from Elle’s Studio.  This collection called Thankful is full of great various shades of blues and a beautiful pink with a touch of yellow, and feathers, dots and geometric patterns too.


Scrapbooking Process

  • I haven’t scrapped any photographs of the clear blue Irish skies yet so while the sun was out one-day last week, I took a couple photographs to use with the Stripe patterned paper.
  • First, I took a sheet of white Bazzill cardstock and stamped “Clear skies” with a mix of the Jordan Solid and Dots and Stripes alphabet stamps with blue ink.
  • Then cut my cardstock down by ¾ of an inch and matted it on the reverse of the Feathers patterned paper so I had a nice red border to contrast with all the blue colours.
  • I cut the Stripes patterned paper into a strip of paper to use below the photographs.
  • Then cut small 1 inch strips of the Stripes and Feather patterned paper to slot behind my photographs.
  • To do this, I only add tape adhesive to the centre of my photographs so I am able to slip these little pieces of patterned paper behind to add layers and interest.
  • I used more of the patterned paper to create a border at the top and bottom of the photograph strip.

thankful2Embellishing A Layout

  • To add embellishment clusters, I cut a banner shape from two of the 1 inch pieces to use as a base for the embellishments (so the buttons and cork pieces aren’t floating in space).
  • I used four cork bits from the coordinating Cork Shapes and added a few buttons to fill in some empty space.
  • We have a small selection of buttons in our store – but if you are interested in growing your button stash please let us know which colours you are after.
  • The only embellishments that are from my stash of random items are the large cork arrows.
  • The horizontal stripes were the best place for my title and journaling to go.
  • I used some Thickers from my stash and a Precision journaling pen, and this layout is finished and can go into my scrapbook album.
