Are you into memory keeping? I am. Each month I create a double page scrapbooking layout kit for my Picture to Page Creative Class, held on the first Friday of the month. This layout features the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, which has matching dies.
My next comment is like saying you have a favourite child, but this layout is one of my all-time favourite layouts. Whilst it might look fiddly, it really is an easy layout. So check out the tips and tricks below.
Stamp Set: Rooted in Nature; Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set
Designer Series Paper: Wood Textures (now retired) cut into 2 inch squares – this layout would be suitable for most coordinating patterned papers, not just Wood Textures DSP.
The title is die cut using retired alphabet dies – the words “ARE THE” were stamped using the Labeler Stamp Set. I regularly use a combination of alphabet dies and stamped alphabet letters.
Ink: Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz
TIPS AND TRICKS
To create the Wood Textures triangle, I joined the two sides together to make it easier. To keep the triangle square (hopefully, that makes sense), I adhered the top full square first, ensuring that the top corners of the square are equidistant from the corner of the background 12 x 12 sheet. I did not cut the triangles on each side of the layout until it had been laid out and adhered.
Both the leaves and the trees from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set were stamped using generational stamping (in other words not re-inking between each stamping. I stamped the leaf background after I had laid down the Wood Textures DSP pattern and applied the embossing paste. The trees were used to fill any excessive white spaces on the layout.
I coloured the Embossing Paste with the Crumb Cake reinker.Product List
As always some of these techniques would carry over to smaller projects like a handmade card. But the squares would need to be cut significantly smaller – perhaps 1/2″ to 3/4″.
I hope you have enjoyed this scrapbooking project. My next From Picture to Page Creative Class is scheduled for Friday 19 July 2019 (later this month due to holidays). Come along and have some fun.
