Spring Scrapbook Page Ideas
When it comes to scrapbooking, I am a minimalist. I like clean layouts and not too much clutter. Sometimes a photo inspires me, as in the example above, but sometimes the strangest things will be the source.
This is a really fun and easy scrapbook layout using handmade background paper, glittery die cut flowers and some cute gems. I wanted to bring out the colors in the photo, so I decided to make my own handmade background paper. You can find out how to create your own background papers by checking out our post Make Background Papers. I may or may not have mentioned in the past something about a paper fettish I have….so I wasn’t worried at all about finding the right shade of solid colors to enhance the Polka Dot background paper.
Making your own background paper is easy and you can then use it however you want. Not only is the background handmade, but I also used some under the journaling. I printed my journaling on vellum and attached it with brads.
I think my favorite part of this layout is the glittery flower border I created at the side. For this, I took 12×12 scrapbook paper and attached it to Sizzix adhesive paper. I ran that through my Sizzix Big Shot with the Bigz Die Cut Build a Flower #3. This made one side of the flower sticky once I peeled the paper back. Then I dipped those flowers in ultra fine glitter. To get this border effect, I arranged the first layer of flowers how I wanted them before adhering them with double stick tape. For dimension, I used foam tape to attach the send flower layer on top of some of the first. I also added a little bling…I mean, serioiusly, can you ever have enough?
