Be YOU Scrapbook Layout with Inky Corners

Hello scrappy friends! Today I have a fun way to bring color into your scrapbook layout. Curious? A little hint: inky corners! Using Mounting Corners Maxi View 3in and alcohol inks is all you need to jazz up your page. Here are all of the colorful details.

Getting Inky with Inky Corners

Start the craftiness by taking one sheet of the Mounting Corners Maxi View 3in and your chosen colours of alcohol inks.

Cover the Mounting Corners Maxi View 3in using 2 combinations of alcohol inks. I chose to add cool tones to one, and warm tones to the others. Cover all of the Mounting Corners Maxi View 3in.

I chose misters that coordinated with the alcohol inks that I used for the corners. Cut the white cardstock down to 10.5×10.5, and I put a piece of chipboard down as a mask, just to reduce drying time. Splatter the misters up and down the edges of the mask. Let dry completely.

Scrapbook Layout Design

Black cardstock is the full background. Cut another piece of white cardstock that is 11.5×11.5 and adhere to the black cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Add the splattered white cardstock to the background using the alcohol inked Mounting Corners Maxi View 3in.

Cut a white cardstock strip that is 5×10.5, and a piece of black cardstock that is 5.25×10.5. Next adhere them together using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Adhere them to the middle of the layout using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Add a narrow little strip of patterned paper to the top and bottom of the border using E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser. Mat the 4×6 photo in white and then black cardstock. Then add to the layout using Crafty Foam Tape White.
