Making Themed Sections

Arin here, and today I have a fun tip of making a scrapbook page with no pictures! Yes, I said NO pictures.  I like to separate my scrapbooks into sections and making a themed section page is one of my favorite things to do when it comes to scrapbooking.  This page is my camping themed page. I used Kiwi Lane Designs Wacky, Celebrate, and Chevrons templates and really got mileage out of the My Mind’s Eyes Now and Then Collection we were so lucky to receive to play with.  Oh my is that collection just fun and full of life – a perfect complement to a camping page!

Here is how I did it

Templates Used: Wacky 3 and 6Celebrate 6 and 8, & Chevrons 2B

Step One: Building your Layout-

Using a solid 12×12 MME Now and Then design paper as a base, begin to build a layout before full execution takes effect.  Once all pieces are in place, snap a photo for future reference and then start pulling off the Kiwi Lane templates to trace, cut and ink. Happy Camper Framing

Step Two: Embossing and Color Spraying the Sun Template from Wacky:

Taking the sun template, I ran it through my embossing machine using a distressed stripes embossing folder.  Once embossed, I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Color Spray and curled up the edges up to add dimension. Happy Tiny Wacky

Step Three: Building the Layout:

Using MME’s Now and Then Collection, I began using the stickers, cutouts, and enamel dots to build upon.  I added some fabric letters (yes, I use them on EVERY project – I just love them) and some felt flower ribbon and felt flower embellishment to finish it off.  Happy Camper Embellishments
