Featured Project Friday

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm sharing a new Featured Project Friday Post from Creative Life Scrapbooking Facebook Page. I created today's scrapbook layout with the Creative Memories new Simply Sunshine Collection. I love the way the yellow printed paper enhances the photos I took of my great-granddaughter and her dad at Disneyland. So who says we need Disney inspired papers and embellishments to enhance photos taken at Disney theme parks? Here's at least one example to prove that we don't!

Here's what you'll need to create today's scrapbook layout:

Simply Sunshine Designer Paper Pack
Simply Sunshine Variety Mat Pack
Simply Sunshine Embellishments
Simply Sunshine Designer Stickers
Sticker Letters of your choice
12-Inch Trimmer
Tape Runner
Precision Point Adhesive Pen
Foam Squares
Brown Dual Point Pen

  • Use your 12-Trimmer to cut one sheet of yellow printed paper into one 3 1/4" x 12" piece and one 8 3/4" x 12" piece and one sheet of floral printed paper into one 8 3/4" x 12" piece and two 1 5/8" x 12" strips. From a second sheet of the same yellow printed paper cut one 1 1/2" x 8 1/4" title box, one 1 1/2" square and two 1/4" x 12" strips.
  • Using white 12 x 12 pages as your base, adhere the pieces cut from the first two sheets of decorative paper to your base as shown (the 8 3/4" x 12" yellow plaid and two 1 5/8" x 12" floral strips on the right page and the remaining 8 3/4" x 12" floral piece and 3 1/4" x 12" yellow plaid piece on the left page).
  • Using a Precision Point Adhesive Pen, adhere the 1/4" x 12" strips to the right page as shown with the reverse yellow floral side up. Adhere one 4" square photo and two 4" x 6" photos to the right page as shown. Trim a journal mat from the variety mat pack to 4" square and adhere to the right page as shown. Adhere four 4" square photos to the left page as shown. 
  • Use a Brown Dual Point Pen to create faux stitching on the reverse yellow floral side of the title box and 1 1/2" square. Adhere the 1 1/2" square to the left page and the title box to the right page as shown. Add a title, use your 4" square mat to journal and add stickers and embellishments using your Adhesive Pen where needed and foam squares for dimension. 

By the way, I used the little heart stickers to cover the little bird on this particular mat. I had originally journaled on the reverse side of this mat and later noticed that I had failed to complete an entire sentence. Bleh!! My mind works faster than my writing hand does!!!
