Trinity Stamps

Floral Scrapbook Layout

CBK-Sat

Today I decided to make a totally different project- a 12×12 scrapbook layout.  I haven’t made one in a while and it felt good to take one of my daughter’s photographs and make a layout with it.

I only used one stamp set- the Trinity Stamp Spring Fling Florals stamp and die set!   I made a video for the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel: link, that details everything, so I’ll keep the blog post concise.

  1. I took a piece of 12 x 12 white cardstock, placed the photo where I wanted it to be in the layout and then traced the corners with a pencil (the tracing gives me an idea where I should stamp) and then I stamped away- lots of floral images with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I started with the larger images and then filled in holes with the smaller images.
  2. I wanted the flowers to have the essence of watercolor, but having very limited time, I didn’t want to actually watercolor this time, so I stamped some images on watercolor paper from My Favorite Things and then die cut them.
  3. I always place images first on a card or layout to make sure I like where they are before I adhere them down.  That being said, I do still glue things down only to rip them off later- lol!  Here though, I did not have to rip anything off later, but I did have to adjust my layout, by cutting 1/4 inch off each side of the white 12×12 page and then originally I had planned to have the photo in the upper left side had to change it to the lower right.
  4. Finally I adhered all images, photos and thickers down with some sequins in between.  I am very happy with the way it turned out.

 

I hope that you are inspired to do your own 12×12 scrapbook layout!

Thanks for stopping by!
