I was lucky enough to spend some time scrapbooking on National Scrapbook Day and designed 2 layouts based on this sketch.  The first one features the Simple Stories “Heart” collection.

@csmscrapbooker @kellycreates #simplestories #heart #scrapbooking #layout #Tombow @TombowUSA
SUPPLIES: Simple Stories papers, stickers; Core’dinations white cardstock; Tombow Fudenosuke pen and adhesives; Westcott trimmer and scissors.

I did a little brush lettering with the Tombow Fudenosuke soft tip brush pen to add “you have my” to the title.

For the second layout, I rotated the sketch a quarter turn clockwise and used Fancy Pants Designs “Me-Ology” collection.  I’m trying to scrapbook more photos of myself this year, and the ME-ology line is perfect!

SUPPLIES: Fancy Pants Designs papers and stickers; Tombow Monotwin Pen and Adhesives; Westcott Trimmer and scissors.

I used the Tombow Monotwin to doodle on the layout and add some interest with black lines.  The Monotwin has 2 tips of different sizes and is a permanent marker that I love using!

I think the black doodled outlines really make those flowers pop!

To adhere everything together, I used an assortment of Tombow Adhesives....love these products!
