Scrapbook Layout - Say Cheese! -
I love looking at different websites and blogs for inspiration. Last week I found a free printable file in the Paper Issues store, and knew right away that i was gonna use it to create a layout for a picture of my daughter's Christmas selfie.
|This colorful cameras were cut-out of the printable file from Paper Issues.|
I printed two copies of the file, as I knew I wanted a lot of cameras for this layout
First I printed two copies the file from Paper Issues on matte photo paper, and then cut all the cameras out. I backed and layered the photo with patterned paper from Crate Paper, and one of the printable cards from the file. Once I started assembling the layout, I realized that i need to create dimension to the cameras, so I used foam dots in different thicknesses, and some got a layer of used tissue paper to add some lift to the cut out (i used the same technique with the picture).
|The folded tissue paper was folded and glued to the back of the cut-out. |
Glue dots and foam dots were used to add dimension.
Once I set the picture and the cards I added some ephemera and stickers to the top left of the picture, I kept it simple to find some balance to the layout. I used strips of paper from the Pink Paislee Memorandum collection, and a label from My Mind's Eye for my journaling.

Finally I used some chipboard letters and one of my stamps to create a title, a few drops of Smooch spritz and the layout was done... My daughter and I love it...
