I have a fun and sticker filled 12x12 layout to share with you today all about a boy named Kaeden. He's my 4 year old and is a total ham pretty much all the time. He is all boy and very active. I love him, but we all know when this look comes across his face soem trouble is about to go down!
DIY Scrapbook Layout: How to Capture Personality
Shop this Project
Let's gather supplies!
Print your photo at 4x4. You can see that I had to trim my photo out of a 4x6. Choose some subtle earth tones for cardstock and a couple of patterned papers.
Next I figured out placement of pieces. I covered the bottom half of the layout with a 6" piece of patterned paper. The woodgrain piece is 6x6 and placed to the right side of the page. This is where the photo will go later.
Cut out a 3x4 card from the Collection kit and layer it with the Kraft cardstock, and the photo. I used some light gray cardstock as a mat on this photo, leaving a very thin edge around it.
The Collection kit comes with two sticker sheets which I love. In this next step, I add foam tabs to the back so they will add more dimension to the layout. They will get mixed with flat embellishments for balance.
For the title, I simply mixed the large letter stickers with the smaller square ones. This gave a good mix of color and I was able to spread it all the way across the top of the layout. Simple and clean.
Ive been doing this a lot more lately when trying to do a few pages in just a few days. Typing the journaling out is a big time saver for me. I can type out a bunch of journal spots for a few pages and print it all on one sheet of cardstock. I do this when there isn't a pre-printed journal spot within a kit or lighter colored background paper.
Here's a peek at the sticker embellishment details. I chose a few meaningful stickers like the "K" and the "3" to mix in.
Last look at the full layout below. Thanks so much for coming over to the Blitsy blog today. I can't wait to see what you all create! Happy crafting!
