'SUMMER STORY' SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT

I COMPLETED THIS LAYOUT BY CREATING THE PAGE DIGITALLY AND PRINTING THE ELEMENTS OUT INDIVIDUALLY ON MY EPSON WF-7510.  I THEN TRIMMED OUT THE TITLE AND OTHER PIECES AND ASSEMBLED EACH ELEMENT UNTIL THE LAYOUT RESEMBLED THE DIGITAL VERSION AND I WAS HAPPY WITH HOW IT LOOKED. TO FINISH IT OFF, I ADDED SOME STAR SHAPED SEQUINS WITH MY TINY ATTACHER, A STAMP FROM THE KELLIE STAMPS SUMMER COLLECTION, AND SOME JOURNALING ON MY TAG WITH MY PROJECT LIFE PEN - WITH THAT, MY LAYOUT WAS COMPLETE!

POCKETS AND INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS

CREATING AND WORKING WITH POCKETS AND REMOVABLE ELEMENTS IS A GREAT WAY TO MAKE YOUR PAGES INTERACTIVE AND FUN.

HERE, I SIMPLY STITCHED AROUND MY PHOTO AND DOWN THE CENTER WITH WHITE EMBROIDERY THREAD AFTER PUNCHING IT WITH AN AWL.

WHEN MY 'POCKET' WAS COMPLETED, I SIMPLY SLIPPED A TAG WITH JOURNALING AND DATE INFORMATION INTO THE NEWLY CREATED POCKET!

HIDING ELEMENTS LIKE JOURNALING BY TUCKING THEM AWAY IN POCKETS IS A NICE WAY TO KEEP YOUR PAGE LOOKING CLEAN AND POLISHED WHILE STILL INCLUDING THE VERY IMPORTANT PERSONAL MEANING OF THE STORY.

THE FINISHING TOUCHES

AS YOU CAN SEE, I CARRIED THE WATERCOLOR EFFECT THROUGHOUT MY LAYOUT FROM THE STRIPES TO THE TAGS ETC. I DID THIS BY DIGITALLY MASKING THE WATERCOLOR TO THE FORMS I INTENDED TO USE! IT'S A FUN WAY TO CREATE A SUPER COHESIVE LAYOUT WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT. ANOTHER WAY I FINISHED OFF MY LAYOUT WAS TO USE MY TINY ATTACHER THROUGHOUT THE LAYOUT WITH GOLD STAPLES. I APPLIED EVERYTHING FROM MY SCRIPT TITLE TO THE SEQUINS AND TABS WITH IT, AND IT HELPED IN COMMUNICATING MY THEME CLEARLY THROUGHOUT THE PAGE.

SPECIAL TRICK: WHEN YOU WANT TO USE A STAPLE TO ATTACH YOUR EMBELLISHMENT, BUT YOUR STAPLER CAN'T REACH - SIMPLY STAPLE THROUGH THE SINGLE LAYER AND USE ADHESIVE, LIKE THE TOMBOW PERMANENT ADHESIVE, TO ATTACH THE ITEM INSTEAD. WHEN THE STAPLE IS FOR DECORATION PURPOSES, IT CAN STILL ADD IMPACT EVEN IF IT'S NOT ATTACHING ANYTHING!
