Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 4

This cute paper is Hopscotch. The idea of this layout came from the zipstrip on the paper as it has a bunch of speech bubbles in different shapes and colors. I then cut out a bunch of different sized speech bubbles and stamped different sentiments to highlight the theme as well.

Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 3

This is the Brushed paper pack and when I originally saw it in the book, I wasn't a huge fan of it because of the big bright flowery print. I do like the other pages in the paper pack though and using only part of the bold print really brings the whole thing together. I also used a cricut overlay from the Artbooking cartridge to cut down on the boldness as well. I feel that it adds almost a window pane feel to the flower print. This layout would be good for a generic spring layout or as an Easter layout as well. To add some extra texture, I used washi tape, some paper flowers and brads and some rhinestone flourishes.

Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 2

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and the Heartstrings paper pack is perfect to document all your lovely pictures. I like the contrast of the Lagoon and Whisper grey colors with the Cranberry and Hollyhock. I brought a lot of texture to this layout by using pattern stamps, such as the border on the right side. As well, I used the patterned paper from the pack along with the zipstrip which is the piece of paper with the arrows on it. There is versatility in the layout with the pictures as you are able to rearrange the placement to suite your needs.

I didn't use one large title this time as I felt that there was enough with the stamped sentiments. To customize the Dimensional Element chipboard hearts, I stamped on them using different patterns and then layered them with 3D foam.
