Welcome to Day Nineteen of 31 Pages in 31 Days, Song of My Heart's exclusive annual blog series and challenge! Are you up for it? Make a scrapbook page per day in August (or several at once) for a total goal of accomplishing 31 Pages during a single month. It's called "immersion scrapbooking" and IT CAN BE DONE!!! Click here to join the Facebook support group for those taking the challenge.
Today's page is called a picture frame page, and it's a single layout that looks like it has a wooden frame around it. The effect is done by scoring the paper in straight lines around all four edges, then using Whisper White craft ink to sponge the edges so the lines stand out. It looks best with black or brown as the base color, but you can do it with white or tan colored papers as well.
Here's a closeup of the score marks and sponging. This is a super fun technique and very easy to do with your Simply Scored Board or any paper trimmer--you should try it!
To create my grid layout of four 2" squares by four squares, with a single 4x4 inch square in the center, I used the 2-inch square cards from the Project Life by Stampin' Up Moments like These accessory kit, and a couple of 2-inch squares I cut from scrap paper, on a 8.5x8.5 inch square mat. This would be a great layout for those times when you have only one photo, but several things to say. You can use anywhere from 4-5 of the squares as journaling boxes.
The Project Life by Stampin' Up kits make traditional scrapbooking even easier! I don't have very many people using the page protector system with Project Life, but regular scrapbookers ADORE our PLxSU product line because the colors match our Stampin' Up cardstock, patterned papers, ink pads, markers, ribbons and embellishments. We even have coordinating, exclusive Big Shot products that combine three of our favorite things--Stampin' Up, Sizzix, and Project Life. Can't beat that!
Thanks for popping in today to check out the latest inspiration page! See you tomorrow for Day 27, a cute Halloween page using sneak peek products from the 2015 Holiday Catalog. FUN!
