Scrapbooking Stickers

Scrapbooking Tag Ideas

Part 5

By Jennifer Gormly


Wedding photos provide insight into a pivotal moment in a couple's lives and are beautiful moments to preserve. Whether they be from your own wedding or someone else's, we all have wedding photos that we haven't got around to scrapping yet. Well, now is the time to dig them out. The following layout was designed to inspire you to make a start on those wedding photos.


This layout was created using blue Carolee's patterned paper for the background, blue plaid paper, white cardstock, white cotton and Bo Bunny Just Married stickers.


The first step in re-creating this layout is to matt your photo on white cardstock and then blue plaid paper. Also add the 'Love' sticker in the bottom right-hand corner. Make sure it overlaps onto both matts. Do not, yet attach the photo to your background.


Next, create your tags. Tags are a great way to both enhance your stickers and embellish your layouts. A template was not used to create these tags. Instead, I chose which stickers I was wanted to use (the wedding cake and knife, the car and a heart) and cut three rectangles from blue plaid paper that were the approximate size of each sticker plus a little extra room at the top for the hole. This gave me three different sized rectangles. I then added the stickers and trimmed the top corners. Finally, I matted them on white cardstock and punched a hole through the top.


If you wish, you can leave off one of the stickers and use one of the tags for journaling instead.


You now must decide on your page layout. Firstly, attach the blue ribbon sticker across the top of your page. Make sure it is centred. As you can see, I placed my photo directly below the sticker, but you may wish to add a title in between. If so, do this now, but keep in mind that you will have to place the other elements further down the page than I have.


Now you have an approximate placement for your photo. Do not yet attach it as you will be placing cotton underneath it.


Cut three pieces of white cotton and thread one through the hole in each tag. Work out the placement of each tag and adhere them to your page. Now you want the create the effect that the tags hanging from your photo, with the cotton attached behind it. To do this, take both ends of one piece of cotton and, using a photo tab, attach them to your background paper behind where your photo would be. The tab will then be hidden when you add your photo. You might want to twist the cotton a little and leave it a little loose. Repeat this step with the remaining tags.


Finally, you can adhere your photo. Your layout is complete! You not only have a beautiful memory of your wedding or a friend's, but you also have plenty of stickers left over to create a second page!
