Have you ever wanted to try out scrapbooking but don't know where to start? How about using a paper collection like Altenew's newest Wildflower Paper Collection. It has all you need to create stunning layouts, cards, and other fun crafting projects.
I created two easy projects based on a simple technique: layering. Layering is a great way of creating a focal point and adding instant detail without too much work. If you are a first-time scrapbooker, this technique will help you as all you have to do is play around with your layers until they look good.
Let's start with the layout.
I used strips of patterned paper to create a “ledge” for my photo and embellishments. These were created with the Simple Roses Stamp and Die Set which match the collection perfectly. The design of the rose can be seen in one of the patterned papers. Having a stamp set that matches is music to my ears as I always need more embellishments and this way I can create customs ones.
Once I had stamped the roses and some leaves I started playing around with them on my layout and created a central cluster. To fill up the white space at the top and create flow I added a second small embellishment cluster on the top.
The title was made with one of the die cuts from the die-cut sets.
When I create a layout I always have leftovers. I love using these to create cards. It is a simple way to use up those bits and bobs and it is also a quick process.
As for the layout I went with a layered look. I really love how this card turned out: simple with lots of details.
You can see how I created the layout and card in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.
Do you love layering? What are your go-to techniques?
Thank you for stopping by and happy scrapping.
