Creating an 8.5×11 Inch Scrapbook Layout Using Goodies From My Stash!

During this week’s Wednesday Livestream on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I created an 8.5×11 inch scrapbook layout featuring goodies from my stash! As much as I love using new scrapbooking goodies, there are times when I want to deep dive into my scrapbook stash and challenge myself to create a layout using nothing but my older scrapbook supplies.

I am a firm believer in breathing new life into older scrapbooking products! There are some designs and color palettes that never go out of style. For example, for this project, I used pattern paper from a Becky Higgins paper collection from 2012. The colors in this collection feature grays, orange-red hues, tan, and green. I isolated the colors that worked well for my project (blue, red, and gray) and searched my embellishment stash for items with a similar color palette.

The result? A clean and simple layout composition that was fun to create and easy to replicate for future projects. And I enjoyed the added benefit of using goodies from my stash!

This layout features a story about my daughter’s love of Manga and Anime! She has recently developed a strong interest in Cosplay, dressing up as her favorite Anime characters, and hanging out with likeminded Cosplay fans. And of course, I have to scrapbook her new adventures!

I wanted to make sure that the design of this layout did not take away from the story. I also had to think of ways to stretch my stash since I do not have Anime-themed embellishments or paper (not sure if that exist). But, I was ready for the challenge!

Since I was going for a clean and simple composition, I kept the layered embellishment clusters small yet high impact by incorporating a bit of texture via a puffy stitcher label and a flat-back brad. Also, two tabs were added at the top of the layout to fill in a bit of white-space, and I created a title using two letter stickers designs for added interest and dimension.

Overall, I love the look of this 8.5×11 inch layout…clean, simple, and story-driven!
