This week is our final session of the spring 2017 4x4 Scrapbooking Class, and we're going out with a bang with some really great layouts. These over-the-top pages using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Thinlets use a sheet of the coloring papers from Sale-A-Bration 2017 (more designs coming in the new 2017-18 Idea Book & Catalog!)
TIP: I originally planned for these pages to be black, white and gold, but the addition of Island Indigo ink, cardstock and patterned paper as an accent color made the gold pop even more. It will also help soften the page if color photos are used instead of black and white photos. Sometimes, the contrast between an all black-and-white layout and the living-color photos is just too harsh, so adding an accent color into the mix is more pleasing to the eye as it smooths the transition.
One of our other layouts for scrapbook class is a sweet combo of Blushing Bride, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate. As we bid adieu to our Project Life partnership with Becky Higgins, I've got a lot of cards to use up, so many of the patterns on this page are from the "Happiness Is" collection.
I don't do pocket-style scrapbooking, but I sure have fun using the journaling cards and page elements on my traditional 12x12 layouts. Sometimes I punch or cut out elements so they are more versatile than just squares or rectangles. In this spread, I complemented the stamped circles on the base pages (from the new Eastern Palace stamp set) with a headline punched from one of the cards.
I encourage you to take a look at the Project Life discontinuing items and pick up some bargains--many of them are discounted and all of them are while supplies last. SHOP WITH LYSSA
