5 Steps to a Simple Scrapbook LO using Project Life Cards

Hi there!

This Layout was so fun and quick to make I thought I would share it with you. Here is a quick 5 Step Photo Tutorial...

Step 1 ~ Gather your Resources

What you will need:
  • 12 x 12 White Card
  • your 4x6 photo
  • 1 4x6 Pocket Scrapbooking card
  • 5 3x4 Pocket Scrapbooking cards (I used Project Life Midnight Edition)
  • washi tape
  • scissors
  • adhesive tape
  • glue
  • rhinestones
  • heart shape punch (not pictured in photo)
  • rounded corner punch (not pictured in photo)
  • sewing machine with black thread (not pictured in photo)

 Step 2 ~ Add your 4x6 Card

This is as simple as it gets!  Round the corner of your photo first, then layer it onto your chosen 4x6 card.  Don't stick it down to the 12x12 card yet.

Step 3 ~ Layer your 3x4 cards

Play around with your 3x4 cards and place them under your matted photo leaving little bits sticking out from under the edge of the photo.  When you are happy with your design adhere it to your 12x12 card.

Step 4 ~ Embellishments and Journalling

Add in a little bit of journalling somewhere. I added mine below the photo in the corner.  Punch some hearts out of the 3x4 cards and position on your page as embellishments.  Tear up some bits of Washi tape and stick down.  Glue down some silver and black rhinestones. 

Step 5 ~ Add some stitching

This is optional.  You can add some Machine stitching over your photo, cards and heart embellishments if you wish.

Thats it! Your done.  Do you agree it is simple? I personally like all the white space and I also like the black and white colour palette.  If you do happen to follow this process or be inspired by it please leave a comment so I can hop on over and see your work.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.
