Gina: Hello - scrapbook layout and video

Hey Guys! I’m still trying to finish the blog posts and videos from the three layouts I made on National Scrapbooking Day. I realize that it was over a month ago now, but I made the layouts and the videos, so I thought I’d still go ahead and share them. hello layout 90

This layout is of a picture Stew and I took while we were on a hike through a national wildlife refuge. As we walked along the pier through the woods and over the shallow swampy area, we noticed these small paw prints. They looked like a raccoon or some other critter and they were wet, like we had come upon him and he scrambled away. I wanted to document that moment.

On the layout itself, though I used a 4x6 photo, I used a frame around the portion of the photo I wanted to highlight and I emphasized it further by using those acrylic arrows. I matted that hello paper on black cardstock and gutted the black cardstock to use as the main paper layer on which I adhered my photo and other embellishments. I do that often using a 12x12 paper to frame the full layout and cutting out the part you can’t see so that I can use that on the visible portion of the layout. It’s like more bang for your buck or something.

The one embellishment I really wanted to make sure I used on this page was that hanging banner chipboard piece. I struggle with using those shapes so bad that I challenged myself to make sure it was used. I really like how it frames out the bottom of the photo. A bow, a little tulle flower and some diecuts round out the embellishing.

Most of the supplies from this layout came from the Scraptastic April and May kits.
