Layout ‘Make it happen’

Layout with Reflection Scrapbook Kit. @SandraDietrich for @Altenew.

Use the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit to create a summery layout.

Don't you just love the moment when you realize that a patterned paper matches the photo you intend to be using on a layout? That's what happened to me, Sandra. I found out that the photo of my shoes matches one of the patterned papers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. The photo on today's scrapbook page is from a long walk on a beautiful island at the Baltic Sea Coast here in Germany. Here, timber blanks have been built so you can walk through a wonderful National Park Area. By the way, these are currently my favorite shoes to wear :). And here is the scrapbook layout I want to share with you today to remember our walk through the National Park.

Let's look at the details of the layout

I stamped the caption ‘Every Summer Has A Story' from the Summer Swirls Stamp Set from the July 2017 Release on white cardstock. And placed it on the patterned paper with the green stripes from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit. In addition, I used foam pads and Glue Tape to attach the sentiments to the paper.

Wood veneers, buttons and arrows

Then I placed wood veneers, buttons and colorful arrows across the layout. I attached some of the wood veneers with foam pads to give them more dimension. Even though they are not on the photo, we saw flowers, butterflies and beautiful birds on our walk. I think that the embellishments are an artsy addition to remind myself of the beautiful nature we discovered during our walk.

Furthermore, I layered some patterned papers underneath the photo to add some colorful details. Layering is a technique I like to use on scrapbook layouts. Because it makes the photo look more interesting. In addition, it gives the viewer more things to discover.
