Hi crafters! In case you missed my Bee Garden scrapbook page posted up on UK Scrap Addicts on Sunday I thought I would pop it on my blog here too.
UK Scrap Addicts ins a new blog with the aim of showcasing the UK scrapbooking scene, from designers to manufacturers, and growing the scrapbooking community. Laura who founded the blog got in touch with me on Etsy to say how much she liked my StickerKitten products, and asked if I would like to be a guest designer on the blog. My scrapbook pages aren’t so great as I’ve not made many in comparison to the hundreds and hundreds of cards I’ve made, but I was happy to have a go!
I put this layout together using samples from our forthcoming Bee Garden range, which will be available from mid April. I wanted to show that it could be used for scrapbook pages as well as cards.
To begin I tore strips of honeycomb watercolour patterned paper (using a ruler to achieve a neat edge) and created a border. I then layered a sheet of kraft honeycomb paper and pink striped paper with my photo matted on to sky blue paper. These pics were taken on a lovely day by the seaside with our friends on a holiday in Devon. I cut the photo and mat with Lawn Fawn stitched square dies, and it cut off a little boat so I added it back in on the side!
For the next photo I matted it onto leaf patterned paper and rounded the edges. I stamped two polka dot washi tape strips from the Bee Garden stamp set and adhered them to the top and bottom to look like strips of tape holding it on.
To finish I added some small cut out watercolour hexagons, a large stamped floral hexagon, die cut clouds (Lawn Fawn ‘Spring Showers’ dies) and a title using foam stickers. I added my journaling to a spare bit of kraft card and attached it below the photo.
I know it’s not brilliant but I hope you like it still! If you want to see a really inventive layout using multiple mini photos please do check out Laura’s layout here and her video below.
