Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a number of products manufactured by MultiCraft and adhered together with various adhesives from Glue Dots. MultiCraft is based in Ottawa and strives to provide great quality craft items at reasonable prices. Some of the brand names under the MultiCraft umbrella are Forever in Time, Craft Medley and Color Factory. I find many of their products at my local dollar store so they are an excellent choice for frugal paper crafters.
I started with some Forever in TIme Vintage Rose patterned cardstock. I moistened the top and bottom edges with a paintbrush and some water and rolled and ripped them to create a border. Here’s what the flip side of some of those patterned paper looks like. Many of them are glittered and are very pretty. decided that a guitar-themed layout needed a guitar-shaped embellishment so I printed out an electric guitar clip art shape onto white cardstock. Just google ‘printable electric guitar shaped template’ and plenty of free options will come up. I cut out the guitar shape, edged it with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and added some ‘strings’ (any kind of string in your stash will do). Micro-sized Glue Dots adhesive work great at keeping the guitar strings in place. Bigger permanent Glue Dots are ideal for adhering the bigger embellishments while a permanent glue taper works great for attaching paper to paper. A veteran scrapbooker has many kinds of adhesive in her toolbox. 🙂MultiCraft carries many wood laser cut shapes – I’ve used letters and musical notes on this layout. I love these wood shapes – use them as is or modify them with paint, ink or embossing powder.
MultiCraft also carries an assortment of stencils that are handy for adding some colour and/or texture to backgrounds. Here I applied some Ranger Distress Grit-Paste through the stencil. It dries quickly, so then add the rest of your page elements and journaling and call it a day.
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapbooking!

Love the layout Connie! From the tipped and rumpled top and bottom to the Distress Grit Paste and stencil application. Looks awesome! Gotta get that stencil, can you tell me the name/brand of it?
