I Treasure You

Good morning!

Amanda here with you today, and I hope this weekend (if you haven't started already!) you get a chance to get some photo's scrapped.  

I've gone right into the archives of my photo's - a little gem that I missed of my daughter from a few years ago being a goofball (a cute one at that) so I thought I would share a colourful and quirky layout with you today based around the use of one main paper collection and embellishment pack plus a few bits and pieces from my stash.

Scrapbook Boutique Shop links are at the end of this post.

To start, I used a sheet of White 12x12 card stock and flicked my 12x12 page with pink mist (taking the tube out of the bottle and flicking) and then I added some yellow mist to the main diagonal corners. 

I then cut out 4 large pieces of paper (A and B sides) from the KaiserCraft True Love collection pack for my photo stack and a few smaller pieces for the top right, and bottom left hand corner to make a diagonal layout: main features in these corners, and adhered into place.

 I then added lots of layering matching washi tape, plus lots of the stickers that were included in the KaiserCraft Collection Pack.

I added some embellishments from the collectable die cuts plus some other bits and pieces from my stash - tucking them in here and there on my photo stack and adhering wth a glue gun.

I also punched out some little hearts from the KaiserCraft paper and scattered them around the page, adhering when I was happy with the placement (and to cover up some of the larger pink mist splatters from earlier!!).

To make my photo stack pop off the page I added lots of foam squares between the layers of paper. 

For a lot of my embellishments I used a hot glue gun to adhere them into place when I was happy with the placement - this gives you slight dimension, but not as much as the foam.

At this stage it was time to just add a few little embellishments to tie the page together. I usually walk away and come back for this step! 

I decided to tuck some additional cut out pieces of KaiserCraft Forever & Always paper under the layers of the photo stack, had a last rummage through my tin of lost and found embellishments (its like a magic pudding - I never seem to get close to emptying it!) and added a few tags and a flair from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Colour Me Happy Range.

I added my title to the top right hand corner, which is a combination of a foam word (you) and some rub-ons from my stash (I treasure).

And there you have it - a very colourful and fun layout, to capture the spirit of the photo.

Now go get scrapping! Have a great weekend.


  1. A lovely layout Amanda - love the colours, the layers and the details which all serve to highlight that delightful photo!

  2. Love all those layers of patterned papers! Lovely page.
