SCRAPBOOK Layout: #1
I have 3 kids and about 100 scrapbook pages to finish by the end of the summer. Since it is going to be a big part of my summer I hope you don't mind me posting my creations here.
My idea inspiration comes from HERE it is a blog called scrapfit, it is a great blog to use for inspiration.. The challenge was to use up your stickers in a fun & creative way!
I came up with my own custom layout and I am going to use it on as many designs this month as I can. I am hoping this will catch me up on some of my layouts...I am adding a vampire inspired layout to my designs so stay tuned....I have lots of stickers....
All you need for this design is.
Sheet of Stickers
1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock
and 2 sheet of colored paper, perfect for left overs.....
some sort of glue and popdots if you have them.
Here is my design. At a local school we had a ARMY helicopter land so the kids could get a close look at one close up. The paper and the stickers came from a ARMY paper pack I purchased from Hobby Lobby. My son is in JROTC and I knew the pack would come in hand for all of his extracurricular activities. I am so happy I could use it for my daughters layout.
After putting my base paper together I then matted my photos, and placed them on the page. I then used a helicopter sticker and premade sticker title and placed them on the page. I also added a circle sticker in the upper left hand corner. All of the elements are also stickers.
THE STARS....I placed 2 stickers on the page and then used a sticky yellow string scrap I had and just free handed it on the top of the page. I took the stars and put them on a scrap sheet of white cardstock and trimmed the stars out. I then used pop dots to give the stars some demention on the page and placed them along the yellow sticky string.
HINT. When you use pop dots use the entire sheet not just the dots....I used the dot in the center of the middle of the stars and then used the left over sides pieces to hold up the star points. I hate to waste.
