NEW Scrapbook Process Video – Let’s Make a Layout! Cheers Year 41!

Happy Friday! Let’s kickoff the weekend with a fun scrapbook process video, now available on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

Today, I am making my annual birthday layout called Cheers! Year 41, using goodies from the January 2022 Hip Kit Club Scrapbook Kit and Embellishment Kit. This 12 x 12 inch layout features a photo collage, simple embellishing, and a bit of hand stitching.

Every year, I create a scrapbook page to celebrate my birthday. In March of this year, I celebrated my 41st trip around the sun! I love celebrating my birthday and documenting how much I have changed, my current interests, and my hopes for the future.

To see this layout come together, check out the following process video!

This project was so much fun to make! The photos take center stage while the pattern paper and embellishments complete the overlook of this design.

This layout features a layered photo collage. Each photo was resized to 3×3 inches and printed with a white border. TIP: Reducing the size of your photos makes it easier to create a single page multi-photo layout.

To flank the photos, I created small clusters of layered embellishments that feature floral die cuts, wood veneer elements, and tiny chipboard flowers. The title was created using a combination of a word die cut (Cheers!) and chipboard letters from the January 2022 Hip Kit Club Kit. I love coordinating die cuts with letter stickers to create unique title designs!

This layout also features hand stitching! I paired two colors of DMC embroidery floss (#165 and #162) to create a layered stitched look. It’s hard to see the delineation on video and in the photo. But, in-person, this technique offers a really cool effect!

I hope you are inspired to create a layout to celebrate a special occasion in your life! Thanks so much for stopping by!
