How To: Cut a small piece off the white cardstock and glue a piece of patterned paper behind the cardstock (like I did on the right side of the layout). Cut another piece from the same patterned paper and adhere it on top of the page, then glue a few smaller pieces from 6×6" paper on the bottom and top part. Cut 6×6" paper into shapes, like arrows or banners, for example and glue them onto the page, I like cutting triangles and adding them in the corners of the page, it is a nice eye-catcher and a great way to use scraps. When working with 6×6" paper pads, I like to use smaller photos that fit on top of the paper. Place the photos and a matching patterned paper in the middle of the page and add a dew small pieces of patterned paper, it is quite easy to add layers by adding small paper pieces. After you are done with the center part, add rub ons, title and stamps – and if you like, a bit of handwritten journaling. To give the page more dimension I used 3D foam dots on one photo while the other one was adhere directly onto the paper.

How To: Cut off approximately 1 inch on two sides of the white cardstock and glue it on top of a patterned paper. Use the manufacturer´s strip on the patterned paper to decorate the white cardstock – I adhered it in the bottom part of the layout. I used a paper from the 6×6" Polka Dot Party paper pad that included lots of tags – I cut out the tags and adhered them behind the photo, I also sewed on the paper to add a shabby touch to the page. To create the top part of the scrapbooking page, I chose two papers from the paper pad that go along with the colors I already used in the center part. I cut the 6×6" papers in half and glued them on top, then I added decorative stitches. I wanted the white clothespin to match the alphas, therefore I painted black stripes onto it. Afterwards I mixed water and acrylic paint to add splatters. I like using acrylic paint instead of spray as the color is much more intense and the splatter look nicer – at least in my opinion. I added a bit of stamping and a tag on the left side and a button in the splatter area, to create focal points and interesting details. The photo was adhere with 3D foam dots.
