Scrapbook Page Layout CCREW0612SF

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 Winking smile.  Here’s my page…CCREW0612SF_Sharon_Field

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!create a focal point for your scrapbook page

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!

Beautiful Sharon!!!

I love this page and all the ways you met this challenge. The butterfly is my favorite. Must have taken you quite some time to accomplish all that cutting. The result is stunning. The flowers, the torn pages, the color combo...perfect.

I stamped the butterfly dtp onto first edition dsp then stamped three more butterflies onto very vanilla card stock. After cutting out all three butterflies, I layered the first two onto the stamped image using dimensionals and then cut the larger right wing of the butterfly from remaining vv stamped image and attached it to the layered image using more dimensional dots.
