P2P Bounce

With this layout, I really stepped out of my comfort zone.  I used a frame to accent one of the photos and I used wood veneer elements.  I like frames and wood elements on pages I see on Facebook and Pintrest but I just can't seem to make them work for my pages.  I was determined to put together a page using items that would challenge me in order to take layering embellishments to the next level.

I didn't have any other elements in my stash that had the same color of gold glitter like the Freckled Fawn frame so I decided to mix several gold Martha Stewart glitters together on a piece of paper I ran through my Xyron machine to make my own glitter paper that I was able to punch hearts out of in order to accent my page and carry that look to other areas.






Thanks for checking out my page.  Have a great day!

Supplies:
Page - Measures 12" x 12"
Patterned Paper - Background is White Colorbok Cardstock from Walmart and patterned papers are from the Pink Paisley Atlas paper pad, Crate Paper assorted paper pad and Heidi Swapp Favorite Things 6x6 paper bad
Title - Black foam thickers
Accessories - K&Company puffy hearts, Heidi Swapp Black Velvet mist,  Martha Stewart gold glitter, Martha Stewart small heart punch, paper clip from the Target $1 spot, Teresa Collins word stickers, aqua and green stickers from various Bella Blvd. sticker sheets, and all other embellishments are from Freckled Fawn

P2P My Craft Buddy

Practice, practice, practice...I am still working on my layering.  I have now taken the second self-paced online class Layering Like a Boss 2 by Victoria Marie.  In this class, she taught how to layer embellishments using color, texture and scale along with basic design principles like the first class.  I have really enjoyed taking these classes.  Both classes really compliment each other and I found them very helpful with learning how to layer on my scrapbook pages.

Here is another page I created trying to put together all that I have learned so far.  One of the most challenging parts of creating this page is how limited my supplies are when it comes to die-cuts and stickers.  I have paper and paper and more paper.  You can even see some the paper in the photo of my daughter that I am scrapbooking.  I did subscribe to Freckled Fawn recently to build up my embellishment supplies and I love the variety in their monthly kits but I do not have much in my stash at this time.  So I had to use my paper pads and punches to create most of the layering elements below.





Thanks for checking out my page.  Have a great day!

P2P First Tooth

I mentioned in my last Page 2 Page post that I would like to learn how to layer better.  I decided to take an active step towards learning so I purchased the self-paced online class Layering Like a Boss by Victoria Marie.  In the class, she went over basic layering techniques and page design principles. One of the page design principle was the basic grid layout.  I am very drawn to grid designs but I have failed to pull off a pleasing look in my past attempts.  Armed with information from the class, I put this page together to document Makenna's first tooth.  I will need to keep practicing in order to feel more comfortable layering in a more natural and pleasing way, but I do really like how this page turned out in the end.
