Creative Inspiration! Sharing Some of My Favorite Layouts!

If you are looking for scrapbook inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! Today on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I’m sharing a few of my recent scrapbook projects to include 8.5×11 inch and 12×12 inch scrapbook layouts. A link to this video along with photos of each layout in this project share is provided below!

Project #1: Simply The Best Moments – 8.5×11 inch layout

This layout is a great example of a clean and simple composition. I created a grid design using two 3×4 inch pockets and two 3×4 inch photos. Next, I added a title using a stamped phrase and foam letter stickers by Thickers. To complete the layout, I adhered small embellishments to accent the pocket cards and the photos to include tabs, die cuts, and wood veneer elements.

Project #2: Grateful For This Tween – 8.5×11 inch layout

I created this layout using goodies from a recent Hip Kit Club kit. The wood veneer circle elements were cut and position to appear as though they are coming off the side of the layout. Next, I created layered clusters using die cut flowers from the kit. For an added touch, I created heat embossed velum butterflies for a bit of movement and whimsy! The black and white photos pop off the page and are balanced by the color palette of the layout.

Project #3: She Calls Me Momski – 12×12 inch layout

This layout was created in honor of Mother’s Day! Using a Hip Kit Club kit, I created a semi-grid layout using fabric pockets! Each pocket was embellished with die cut flowers, butterfly stickers, and wood veneer buttons! I love the composition of this spread!

Project #4: Art Life – 12×12 inch layout

Using my FAVORITE collection of 2022, Simple Stories Simply Vintage Lemon Twist, I created a quick and simple scrapbook layout using 6×8 pattern papers for the background. I took advantage of the graphic element featured on the pattern paper that is positioned on the left side of the layout by cutting around the black doily and positioning a 4×6 inch photo in the opening of the doily, thus creating a really fun layered look!

Project #5: Beautiful Live In the Moment – 12×12 inch layout

This project is a departure from my usual style! I love shabby chic mixed media layouts and recently had the opportunity to review a kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. This club offers monthly kits that include fantastic materials based on shabby chic mixed media designs. Putting this layout together was so much fun and I am super excited to support an up and coming shop!

Project #6: Create – 12×12 inch layout

This layout was created to celebrate my second year on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Design Team and features a cut file and products by Paige Evans. I love using cut files, so when I saw this design, I knew it would be perfect for this project! To add a bit of interest to the title, I used Distress Oxide Ink to create a dipped effect. The ink only overs the bottom portion of the word CREATE. To complete this project, I used floral die cuts, vellum butterflies, and puffy stickers to frame the photo.

Project #7: Home Sweet Home – 12×12 inch layout

I am a sucker for grid designs, especially when I have a lot of photos that I want to use. For this layout, I’m telling the story of when my family and I moved into our new home in 2018. I kept the design simple by adding a statement cluster at the top right of the layout, supported by a smaller cluster at the bottom of the page. The pattern paper adds so much interest and warmth to the project, along with a hand stitched border.

Project #8: Cheers! Year 41 – 12×12 inch layout

In celebration of my birthday, I like to create a scrapbook layout to commemorate the occasion! Using goodies from a recent Hip Kit Club kit, I created a band of pattern paper, positioned in the center of the layout, and added a hand stitched border for interest and texture. Next, I created small clusters that flank the right and left-side of the photos using a chipboard frame, die cut flowers, and wood veneer hearts.
