I am so happy to share with you my first scrapbook layout of 2018! Oh it feels so good to finally sit down and create something awesome. I have been in a bit of a creative slump coming out of 2017. But, 2018 brings a fresh new beginning and tons of possibilities!
For this layout, I used:
- FREE Happy 2018 printable from Elle’s Studio…click HERE!
- Elle’s Studio Family Fun Collection and Stamps
- Elle’s Studio Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Exclusive Stamp Set
- Theresa Collins Signature Essentials Enamel Shapes
- American Crafts 12×12 White Textured Card Stock
This was a super fun layout to create! Using the free Happy 2018 printable from Elle’s Studio, I layered two 3×4 cards (“Happy New Year” and “Celebrate”) on top of two large circles that I punched from leftover pattern paper from the Elle’s Studio Family Fun Collection. The Happy 2018 printable also features 5 circles with printed text – I punched those out with a small circle punch along with additional circles from the Family Fun pattern paper. I clustered the punched circles around the 3×4 cards to create a layered design. For a bit of dimension, I sprinkled a few of the Theresa Collins enamel shapes throughout the layered cluster.
Next, I positioned my photo to the left of the layered circle cluster and added a small tab to the left side of the photo. Using the Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Exclusive Stamp set, I created the title “This and more” with StazOn black ink and Ridding Hood Red ink by Stampin’ Up. The title is probably my favorite part of this layout!
Lastly, I created a smaller cluster at the bottom of the layout which mimics the larger cluster to the right of the photo. A 2-inch strip of pattern paper from the Family Fun collection serves as anchor for the entire layout. To finish this spread, I added three journaling strips under the title.
