How to Make an Engagement Scrapbook Layout
Creating a scrapbook layout is easy once you have all of the right ingredients. I always start by selecting my images first and then choosing papers and embellishments to compliment them.
Mini dies, and dies in general, are my go to for creating embellishments – they’re cost effective and can be used time and again. Thicker stickers are another personal favourite, they’re great for creating statement titles if your handwriting isn’t one of your strong suits, and only take a second to apply.
1. Trim the top four inches off the top of a 12 x 12″ scrapbook page. Position nesting dies on the strip, using craft tape or a magnetic shim to hold them in place, to create apertures.
2. Secure vellum on the reverse of the die cut strip with double-sided tape. Run two stacked layers of foam tape along the back of the strip, then add in your confetti; this could be hand-cut, palm punched, die cut or you could use pre-bought confetti or sequins. Cut a white piece of cardstock to the same size as the aperture strip, remove the backing tape from the foam tape and secure the white cardstock over the top.
3. Secure the remainder of the 12 x 12″ paper to your scrapbook page using a glue stick, then add the die cut shaker strip to the top portion of the page.
4. Create a film strip from white cardstock to hold three of your favourite snaps. Use Thicker stickers and die cut embellishments to further decorate the page.
