Backyard Football, The Big Red Van and Lots of Story Layouts
Scrapbook Page Layouts – Backyard Football page, The Big Red Van and Lots of Stories. I've used patterned paper from KI Memories, polka dot paper, black rub-ons, football embellishments, foam stamps, rubber stamps and hand journaling to create these layouts.
Scrapbook Page Layouts 1 – Backyard Football
My favorite thing about this design is that my husband very kindly did the journaling for me. I love that...especially because the layout is all about football...one of his favorite things. The background is just a 12 x 12 piece of white card stock. I then added the brown football words paper along the left side. Then I added the 3 photos. The football embellishments were actually buttons with little loops on the back to sew them on. I used needle nose pliers to pull the loops off so they would lay flat on the page. The title is done with stamps. This layout was super simple but it still took me a little while to think out. Many times I do things in 15 minute increments...Flylady style. You can see that from my Facebook Page.
Scrapbook Page Layouts 2 – 5 photo layout with lots of “story”
I started this layout with a YouTube video. Most of the time I start a layout by choosing photos and then papers and then I decide where to put my photos and crop them if I want to but this time I started by cropping them. I already knew mostly how I wanted to lay them out and that I wanted quite a few smaller photos. So, once I had the photos cropped I chose the background paper. Then I placed the photos and cut the circle patterned paper in a strip. The circle paper is KI Memories “My Guy.” I rounded the corners on the 4 x 6 photo and then added the title with foam stamps and bottle cap stamps by Stampabiliites. Finally, I added hand journaling.
Scrapbook Page Layouts 3 – The Big Red Van
I love the retro look of this design. I've had this patterned paper pack for a long time and have found some of the patterns hard to use but it was so fun to use this red, brown and tan polka dot paper. On top of that, I added the gray card stock. Then I matted the 4 x 6 photo with black card stock. For the title, I used rub-ons and for the red part of the title I used red labeling tape. Finally, I added the hand journaling...a bunch of memories from my child hood about The Big Red Van. : )
