Seaside Layout Using Ribbon and Extreme Double Sided Tape

Hey everybody! As I sit here wishing for warmer summer temperatures to arrive, I thought I would share a summery scrapbook layout. This layout has lots of dimension using 3D Foam Squares and a little bit of texture with ribbon and the help of Extreme Double Sided Tape.


As always I used my E-Z Runner Grand to assemble all of my background layers.


I love adding ribbon and trims to my papercrafting projects, and my secret weapon is Extreme Double Sided Tape. Here’s a little tip: I always have my ribbon wrap around the back of my layout instead of cutting it off at the edge. This makes for a much cleaner look. I add strips of the Extreme Double Sided Tape to the back of the paper, wrap the ribbon snuggly around the edge and adhere.


When assembling my layout, I like to add lots of layers and dimension using 3D Foam Squares. For this layout I added a single layer of the 3D Foam Squares on this patterned piece, and then a double layer of 3D Foam Squares to the back of my matted photos.


When I am matting my photos and getting ready to add them to my layout, my go-to’s are E-Z Runner Grand, Creative Photo Corners and 3D Foam Squares.


An easy way to add depth and dimension with ribbon, is to simply tie a knot in it. This creates a nice gathered look.
