Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper

Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper

By Jennifer Gormly

 

I love to layer patterned paper on my layouts. It is a fabulous way of adding richness and depth to a page without adding unnecessary weight and without costing too much. This layout shows one way to combine several different papers and a handful of small embellishments without overwhelming your page.

 

Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper

 

This layout was created using Basic Grey Rum Raison paper from Basic Grey Urban Damask Paper Pack, Chatterbox Bunkhouse Ranch Flowers Paper, Scenic Route Newport Chestnut Dots Paper, Chatterbox Olive Parlor Argyle Paper, Chatterbox Poolhouse Stripe Paper (the underside), Chatterbox Powder Lollipop Stripe Paper (the underside), Fancy Pants Wildheart Blossom Paper (the underside), blue cardstock, small circle punch, wave pattern scissors, brown ink, three small brads (1 white, 2 red), three medium brads (1 blue, 1 green, 1 red), black alphabet stickers, small alphabet stickers (I have used blue and green) and Basic Grey Urban Couture Tag cut-outs.

 

Use Basic Grey Rum Raison paper for your background. Lightly ink the edges with brown ink.

 

Cut a piece of Chatterbox Bunkhouse Ranch Flowers Paper measuring approximately 21.5cm by 23.5cm. Ink the edges with brown ink. When dry, adhere to your background approximately 2.3cm from the top and left edges.

 

Cut a piece of Scenic Route Newport Chestnut Dots Paper measuring approximately 21cm by 16.5cm. Ink the edges with brown ink. When dry, adhere to your background approximately 5.5cm from the top edge and 1.5cm from the right edge.

 

Cut a piece of Chatterbox Olive Parlor Argyle Paper measuring approximately 11.5cm by 18cm. Ink the edges with brown ink. When dry, adhere to your background approximately 5cm from the left edge and 1.3cm from the bottom edge.

 

Cut a piece of the underside of Chatterbox Poolhouse Stripe Paper measuring approximately 20cm by 12cm. Ink the edges with brown ink. When dry, adhere to your background approximately 6.8cm from the left edge and 6.3cm from the bottom edge. Position a 4x6 photo within this piece, towards the left edge and adhere.

 

Select the green floral rag and the round red tag from the Basic Grey Urban Couture Tag cut-outs. Ink the edges with brown ink. Position your smaller photo at an angle so that it just overlaps the top right corner of your larger photo. Do not adhere yet. Tuck the green floral tag in behind the left side of the photo and adhere. Now adhere your photo in place. Adhere the round red tag over the bottom left corner of the photo, as shown in the layout above.

 

Select the round green tag from Basic Grey Urban Couture Tag cut-outs. Ink the edges with brown ink. Position over the bottom right corner of your smaller photo, as shown in the layout above, and adhere. Cut out one large red flower, one large blue flower and one medium blue flower from Chatterbox Bunkhouse Ranch Flowers Paper. Adhere to the right of your larger photo as shown in the layout above.

 

Cut a strip of the underside of Chatterbox Powder Lollipop Stripe Paper approximately 3.5cm tall. Use patterned scissors to create a wavy bottom edge. Ink the edges with brown ink. When dry, adhere to your page approximately 2.3cm from the bottom edge.

 

Cut a strip of the underside of Fancy Pants Wildheart Blossom Paper approximately 1.2cm tall. Ink the edges with brown ink. Adhere towards the top of the Lollipop Stripe piece. 

 

Select the round blue tag from Basic Grey Urban Couture Tag cut-outs. Ink the edges with brown ink. Place the first letter of your title on the tag. Adhere on your page towards the bottom right corner of your large photo, as shown on the layout above. Use black alphabet stickers positioned along your Fancy Pants Wildheart Blossom stripe to complete your title.

 

Use small alphabet stickers (I have used small green squares) to add journaling or a second title in the bottom right corner of your page.

 

Using a small circle punch, punch out a collection of small circles from blue cardstock. Arrange in a circle in the bottom left corner of your page, as shown in the layout above.

 

Use small blue alphabet stickers to spell out a word in a semi-circle above your small photo, as shown in the layout above. If you do not wish to add a word or do not have small blue alphabet sticker, punch out some more small circles from the blue cardstock.

 

Finally, add the medium brads to the centre of the circles on your tags and the small brads to the centre of your flowers.
