For my layout I used Altenew Layered Kaleidoscope B Stencil  paired with some of the supplies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit and some Ink Sprays to add interest to my page.

I used the Layered Kaleidoscope B stencil to add texture behind my photo using embossing paste. I took my time to only get the embossing past in the center design of the stencil only.

Note: for those of you who are new to this technique, I would suggest you mask of the areas that you do not want the past to go as to not make a mistake.

I did this twice so that the design would peak out from behind the photo.

Note: you could color the embossing paste using Altenew’s inks and/or sprays to really enhance the texture.  Like this:

I choose not to use it the color paste because it was to much yellow on the page but know that this is an option as well.

Let’s take a closer look:

For this page, I matted the photo on top of a piece of pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I used the stickers and other embellishments from the kit to add the title and cute saying to the layout.  To finish the layout off, I used Altenew Ink Spray and a paintbrush to add ink splatters throughout the page.

So what do you think?  Will you use stencils on your layouts now?  I would love to hear what you think below!

Scrapbooking Again

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share a scrapbook page I created using Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Would you believe me if I told you I started crafting by creating scrapbook pages for my son.  I stopped a long time ago. I was introduced to some may different types of crafts that I slowly walked away from scrapbooking.

Last year, I started scrapbooking again by doing pocket pages.  Those are easy and fun but I missed the actually scrapbook page that I use to create.  So I decided to try my hand at it again.

Lets take a look:

I recently visited my nephew’s and had a blast with them.  My youngest nephew is 5 years old and he is quite the explorer.  He loves nature and everything it has to offer.  We went out to eat and while waiting to be seated he spotted a tree outside and he had to climb it.

I was so happy that my camera was ready.  I captured him looking out beyond the leaves and knew this would be a perfect shot.

Altenew is running their second sketch challenge and I figured I could join in on the fun.

Take a look at the sketch:

To create my page, I used my Brother ScanNCut Canvas online to create a heart.  I downloaded it to the ScanNCut and used it to cut out the heart from one of Altenew Scrapbook pages.

Then I adhered the heart to the white background using Tombow Permanent Mono adhesive.  I added dash lines around the heart to add dimension.

After that I picked out different embellishments to go with the theme of my page.  I placed them according to the sketch.

Let take a closer look:

I love how the embellishments are all color coordinated.

Adding thread, adds an extra layer of texture to this layout.  Super simple but effective.

So what do you think?  Did I follow the sketch? I would love to hear from you.
