Zinia's Monochromatic Layout

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a monochromatic layout I created using the beautiful Shine On collection by Amy and American Crafts.

Monochromatic Layout

This collection is full of gorgeous colors as well as a bunch of amazing neutral elements. I decided to embrace the kraft and gold elements from the collection and create a monochromatic layout design.

Since most of the pattern papers are full of amazing colors, I decided to work on a white piece of cardstock and focus on the embellishments.

Monochromatic Layout

To make my background a bit more interesting, I grabbed some Mermaid Markers in neutral colors and doodled some rings around the page. I felt that the circles will match beautifully with the circular flower designs that are included in the collection.

I created a cluster of floral images on kraft paper to create a cozy bed for my photo, making sure there’s a lot of the design showing around the edges as I didn’t want to cover it up.

Then I picked some of the clear stickers from the sticker book and spread them around for more lovely details. I really love how the white clear stickers sit on top of the rings I painted with my markers, making them pop against the darker colors.

Other than that, I kept my design very minimal as I wanted to embrace the whole black and white/neutral spirit without added clutter.

Of course you can recreate this design with any colors you love but I’d highly recommend that you give these neutral elements a chance and allow them to be the stars of your creations.

Zinia's Mosaic Squares

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here once again and today I’d like to share with you a really fun and colorful page using Amy’s latest collection, Shine On!

Zinia's Mosaic Squares 2

hen I first started scrapbooking I was mostly focusing on embellishments for all my layouts and didn’t really embrace the beauty of pattern paper. Since then a lot of things have changed but I know there are a lot of people out there that scrapbook like I did before.

Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing bad about scrapbooking focusing on embellishments if that’s what you want but if you are just worried that paper-focused designs are more time consuming I have a really quick and easy design to share with you.

First step is to pick your patterns. If you don’t want to spend time searching for the perfect color/pattern combination, just use papers from a single collection and they will coordinate together perfectly.

Then the only thing you need to do is to use your paper trimmer to cut 1x1” squares. I personally find that the quickest way to do this is to cut 1” strips using a trimmer and then just snip each strip with a pair of scissors.

Once the squares are all cut, use your favorite adhesive and just stick them randomly on the page. This design works great on white background but it’s even more exciting on color cardstock.

After the squares are adhered on the page, the only things that’s left to do is add a few embellishments. I just added some small bits on top of a few of the squares so that the design doesn’t get overwhelming. For my title I just used the front half of the gorgeous shaped cards that come in this collection to add a huge“yay”on my page. This is really such a genius item and a really hope we will see more word-shaped cards in future collections.

So that’s it for today. I really hope you enjoyed this page and that you will give it a go with your favorite sheets of pattern paper.

Violeta's Folder Scrapbook

Hello!

I am thrilled to be here again in Amy’s blog sharing my scrapbooking projects.

Home Decor -  Violeta Scrap_0.jpg

I have created a very simple folder to store my scrapbook layouts, also you can store scrapbook papers and other materials in this folder.

 

Home Decor -  Violeta Scrap_1.jpg

To make this folder you only need cardboard of 12x12 inches, a cardboard of 3x12 inches and two more cardboards of 2x12 inches.

 

Home Decor -  Violeta Scrap_2.jpg

You only have to place the first cardboard of 12x12 inches, then, the cardboard of 2x12 inches, and after that another cardboard of 12x12 inches and then the cardboard of 2x12 inches and lastly the cardboard of 3x12 inches.

Home Decor -  Violeta Scrap_3.jpg

The 12x12 cardboard pieces will be glued with a 12x12 paper on each side. We will unite the rest of the cardboard pieces with some scrap paper stripes. In this case from the last collection of Amy Tangerine, “Sunshine & Good Times”. The paper stripes should be a bit wider than the cardboard size so they can be glued to the other pieces.

That way we will have a simple folder with only one flap. To close the folder we are going to use some paper clips and to decorate the folder we are going to use some pompoms from the “Sunshine & Good Times” collection because they are very funny.

Finally, using some Thickers we will place the word “Happy” and the word “Scrap” so we know that it is the folder for our scrapbook materials.

It is very easy to make this folder, you only have to use some cardboard and cover them with your favorite scrapbook papers, no doubt Amy Tangerine’s ones are perfect!

Violeta's Life Is Beautiful Layout

Hello!

I am happy to be back with you in this blog sharing my scrabooking ideas. I love the “Sunshine & Good Times” collection of Amy Tangerine. It is perfect of any pictures of a travel.

I love creating layouts and I want to show you how I have made this one.

I have made the layout using small pictures of a travel. For the base of the layout, I have used a patterned paper from the collection “Sunshine & Good Times”.

I have combined the two photographs with different cards that I have cut from a paper of the collection “Sunshine & Good Times”.

To decorate the project, I have used different stickers from the Sticker Book of Amy Tangerine. I love stickers! I have also used a golden washi tape that combines with the title of the layout.

I have added some journaling in the project in a small card so I can have written the memories of these photographs. I have also added some yellow enamels to give more color to the layout.

Finally, I have stamped some stamps from the collection “Sunshine & Good Times” in black color, to add more fun to the project.

It is a very simple project that you can use with your favorite photographs of a travel or a very special day.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

Hello! I am Violeta Scrap and I am delighted to show you again my scrap projects so you can have some inspiration.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

I have made some layouts with the pictures of my friend’s wedding. I met her thanks to scrapbooking. I have made this layout with the pictures of the beginning of the wedding and the invitation of the event as the main element of decoration.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

For this Project I have used the new Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On” because its colors are very beautiful and they combine perfectly with the wedding pictures. I have used a white basic cardstock as the base of the Project.  I have glued over a stripe of the paper “Planted” of the new collection “Shine On” in brown colors combining with the colors of the invitation.

For the title, I have combined a white alphabet, a Golden alphabet and a Brown alphabet in different sizes and materials.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

As main element decorating the layout I have used the envelope and the invitation of the wedding. Plus, I have added some blue hearts of the new Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On”.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

It is a very simple Project that you can make with few materials. You can combine the different papers from the Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On”.I am sure that you can make this Project with pictures of a very special day. And with Amy’s papers the result is amazing.
