Hey everyone, it’s Latrice! Today is my very first post here on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog. I’m excited to share a 12 x 12″ scrapbooking layout with you. This layout is super special because it’s about my soon to be graduated nephew whose senior portraits I took. I had some images so of course I needed to make something. I’ll frame this in a shadow box to display at his graduation party this summer.
My first steps in creating a layout is deciding on the design. I will try to share the sketch I create along with a few detailed photos as well. Here are my photos and sketch for this one.
For my layout I began by layering the solid cardstock. First yellow onto white and onto a navy blue. Below you can see that I added my two 4 x 6″ photos first. One was layered flat and the second was added partially covering the first photo with 3D Foam Squares.
I wanted something bold on this layout that was masculine and tied in with the Senior graduate theme. I found a great quote and die cut it on my Silhouette Cameo. I love how much space it takes up on the page and I was able to add more natural color to the layout. It fit perfectly with the textures and tones in the photos. I got out my sewing machine and lay my words out. In order to keep them from moving around
To finish the page off I found the perfect flair button with a heart that matched perfect. I then added two earthy buttons on either side using both the 3D Foam Squares and the EZ Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser
Love how this turned out. Thank so much for reading along and checking out my first project. I’m really excited to share more with you all.
