Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hi there, Connie Nichol here today with a bright and colourful layout featuring  one big photo and some strips of CTMH cardstock.   I love this cardstock – it is smooth and just the right weight for electronic die cutting and card making and has a white core, meaning it looks stunning when dry embossed or distressed.  Anyway, I had bits and scraps left over from other projects lying around, most of it from the Whimsy cardstock line, and they make an absolutely perfect background for this photo of my son in front of a height chart.
The inspiration for this layout totally came from the photograph.  I simply mimicked the coloured stripes on the height sign with strips of similarly coloured cardstock.  Tto dress up the cardstock a little bit, I punched some little cloud shapes out of the same colour of cardstock on a few of the rows and glued them on.  Simple, I know, but it makes the cardstock much more interesting to look at.  I also used the Dotty Stencil from Elizabeth Craft Designs and to add a single row of large dots to the edge.  I used washi tape to cover part of the stencil so I wouldn’t make a mess and stick it down so it wouldn’t accidentally move while I was working.   This is a very versatile stencil.  You can use some or all of the dots depending on the look you are going for.  Just cover the holes you don’t want with washi.

The white paste I used is Aladine Izink textile paste.  I had spotted this product at my local scrapbook store the previous week and bought a few colours to play with.  It was very fun!  Quite soft and shimmery, it reminded me a little bit of marshmallow creme.
Here’s a Quietfire Design stamp I used for the page title.  It’s about two inches wide and equally useful for scrapbook layouts about growing children and growing gardens!

Supplies Used:  Close to my Heart cardstock, Fiskars cloud punch, Tombow adhesive, Aladine Izink 3D paste, Quietfire Design stamp, Ranger Ink, Elizabeth Craft Design stitched circle die and dotty stencil, unknown washi tape.

Happy Scrapbooking

  1. What a lovely layout. I love the repetition of the stripes from the picture and the little dots running down the side. So clever and fun! A great way to keep track of how fast the little ones grow up. 🙂
