Explorer - Take Your Time

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - EXPLORER - TakeYour Time - -

Hi there!

It is the middle of the week, which means it is time for a new project for Scrapbook Nerd.   If you follow my work, then you will  know there has not been a Pinkfresh Studio collection i have not loved. So this time i reached for the Let Your Heart Decide collection to create a page about my ever-growing boy.

First i cut the star wreath (Paige Evans Design)from white cardstock,and  used it to mark the center circle of the cut out onto white cardstock.  Then used a few shades of blue Distress Oxides to create the water color background of the page, making sure to leave the center circle intact.

While the background dried, all the stars were backed using papers from the Let Your Heart Decide collection.  A bit of foam adhesive was added to bring some dimension to the page.

Once the background was dried, it was trimmed and then glued to white cardstock, and the wreath was then secured in place.   A few clusters of ephemera and stickers from the collection, as well as the mix 2, Live More and The case of the Blahs (all from Pinkfresh Studio) were then added along the wreath.

I chose to add the picture to the bottom right corner of the page, and then added a  large cluster at the bottom of the picture, and then used some of the negative center space to add journal lines.

Finally to create the title, i used a combination of the collection stickers, and added them to the top corner of the picture.  A few stamped sentiments using the collection's stamp complete this page:

Totally loving how this page turned out.  The colors of the collection were ideal to bring this everyday picture to live, but mostly to convey the sentiment of having your baby grow up and start a new chapter on his life.

Remember to check for all the materials used in this page at Scrapbook Nerd store and contact me if you have questions on how this came together.

See you all soon!
