Good Morning! Today’s blog post will feature my submission for the Splitcoast Stampers June challenge for the Creative Crew! Hope you like it and will play along with the design team!
CCREW0612SF -- Scrapbook Focus: A recipe on how to build a fun scrapbook page! June is national strawberry shortcake month, so your recipe for will be based on this: Classic Strawberry Shortcake using components based the recipe. The page can be about anything, even food if you’d like . Here’s my page…
And here’s the challenge recipe ingredient list:
- The colors Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla
- There must be at least one group of three (three layers, three pictures, three punches, etc.).
- Something soft (the whipped cream) Examples: a torn edge, a ribbon or lace, a fabric element, etc.
- The rest is up to you, just have fun!
Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters and Scrapbook Pages:
- Carry a theme throughout the page
- Create a focal point… for a photo or journaling block
- Repeat colors and patterns within page elements
- Balance embellishments with similar sized items and stamped images
- Create depth with layers, texture and Stampin’ Dimensionals
- Add a visual element for surprise… a little unexpected bling works well!
This 3-d butterfly was created by stamping the image three times and then cutting out the image.Two full butterfly image were layered atop a dtp stamped (direct to paper) image. Layers were separated with stampin’ dimensionals, and then a third (right) wing was added. A layered sentiment follows the recipe for groupings of three… I’m loving the new Apothecary Accents Framelits!!Something soft: Torn edges, three layers, and three large basic pearls…And ruched seam binding for a second soft touch.Another soft element and grouping of three were created in the lower left corner to balance butterfly and pearls in the upper right corner.
Depth was added by adding stampin’ dimensional dots between paper daisy and punched bloom layers attached along a little surprise bling: Silver Glimmer Paper.Natures Walk floral and bird images were stamped along the bottom edge of the scrapbook page to create another anchor for the layered glimmer paper, victoria crochet trim and timeless trim scalloped border.
