Scrapbooking Stickers

Quick Scrapbooking Ideas

Part 9

By Jennifer Gormly


Sometimes the quickest layouts are the most eye-catching. Beary Patch Cut-outs are perfect for the time-pressed scrapper who still wants to effectively embellish her page. Here we look at how such simple embellishments, when combined with the right papers can create a rich and vibrant layout in a minimal amount of time.


The secret to this layout is the successful combination of vibrant colours. I chose my background as the brown tones complimented both the sepia tones in my photo and the brown teddy bears. I also liked the subtle blue stripes in the background as it matches the blues used in the bears' clothing.


To re-create this layout, you will need Chatterbox Sunny Plaid patterned paper (or something similar) for the background, cream cardstock, Beary Patch Teddy Bear 1 Cut-Outs and Beary Patch Tea-Dyed Mini Alphabet Stickers.


Begin by cutting out the elements from the sheet of cut-outs that you wish to use (in this case, two teddy bears, a title and two hearts). Next, matt your photo on cream cardstock. If you are first cropping your photo, be careful to leave a little extra room at the top as your banner will be covering some of it.


Centre your photo and arrange your cut-out elements around it. When you are happy with your placement, adhere them. 


Use a brown pen to draw dotted lines joining the hearts at the side of your photo to the top banner.


Finally, use your alphabet stickers to add your title below your photo.
