Hello again, my fantastic crafty friends! I had to wipe the virtual cobwebs from this space in order to post today, but it feels so good to be sharing with you again. If you have been wondering where I’ve run off to, you can find me posting my work regularly over on Instagram where I’m known as @pineandplum. However, I will be popping in here now and again so I won’t abandon you completely if Instagram isn’t your cup of tea.
So enough about Instagram, lets talk about this scrapbook layout! I’m thrilled to be a new member of the American Crafts Design Team and I’m giddy to be able to craft with their newest and most fabulous collections. All the supplies you see here are from the new Dear Lizzy Saturday Collection, yes, it includes the most darling charms, clothespins and chipboard words, along with all the other fabulous supplies you would expect from Dear Lizzy. I’m in love with the color scheme and the modern vibe of this collection and I can say that it is absolutely perfect for scrapping your boys!
When I started pulling supplies for this layout I loved the way the blue from the paper looked in contrast to the yellow in the picture. I then cut off a couple of the brand strips from the bottom of the papers and added them behind the picture to bring in some more color and some darling phrases. This collection has a fabulous assortment of designs on the brand strips and I always think that is such a wonderful touch. Next I started creating and placing all the circular elements on the page. I needed to break up that solid background of circles and find a way to add more white space. With my circles sorted, I typed up my journaling, chose a title from the gorgeous chipboard Thickers that come in the collection and finally I added all the little finishing touches like the charm and the hearts.
Thank you so much for stopping in today! I had fun creating this layout and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about it. I’ve included a list of supplies below with links to the products if you are interested in seeing more of the Dear Lizzy Saturday Collection.
Happy Crafting Friends!
