Dimensional Layout Step-by-Step

Hello scrappy friends! Tracy here, and today I have a pretty little dimensional layout to share and the easy steps I used to create it. Here are the details on how to easily add dimension to your next scrapbook layout.

Dimension Made Easy

When creating a dimensional layout, this is how I always start. Create a simple layered background with some coordinating patterned papers, adhering them together using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Then create simple layers behind the matted photo and add them using Crafty Foam Tape White. I also added the title piece using Crafty Foam Tape White.

Next add the simple ephemera and chipboard embellishments around the matted photo using a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix, Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and Adhesive Dots Micro. These little differences in thickness make a big impact on a dimensional layout.

My favourite part is adding flowers to a dimensional layout. To do this I use Adhesive Dots Large. These will make sure your large dimensional layout pieces stay put.

Once the flowers are in place, I start adding smaller items like buttons or sequins around the embellishments clusters. For this I use Adhesive Dots Micro.
