Hello friends! Victoria Calvin here and I am so excited to share an awesome scrapbook project with you, featuring the new Storyteller collection by Vicki Boutin. This collection is filled with tons of color, pattern, and mixed media designs – a true representation of Vicki’s style and personality. In short, I am in love with this collection!
When I saw the Storyteller First Draft patterned paper, I knew I had to use it to document my love of reading! The colors and the richness from the mixed media inspired background served as an obvious starting point for a lovely layout.
To begin, I fussy cut several butterflies from the Storyteller Mariposa patterned paper. Additionally, I used the Stamp and Die Set from the collection to create gold glitter heat embossed butterflies for a bit of added sparkle and shine!
I positioned the butterflies on the right side of the layout as if they are flying out of the book located on the lower part of the First Draft patterned paper. To the book, I added the beginning lyrics from my favorite childhood show, Reading Rainbow! The lyrics serve as the journaling for this project.
The photos are matted with patterned paper from the collection and a die cut from the Storyteller Die Pack was used as the title. To the left of the photos, I adhered two tabs from the Storyteller 6×12 Sticker Sheet, and toward the bottom left I created a small cluster of butterflies as a repeated element that coordinates with the butterflies on the right side of the layout.
The back of the First Draft patterned paper includes a set of library checkout card images, perfect for fussy cutting and using as a spot for journaling. For this project, I fussy cut one of the checkout cards and layered it behind my photos. To the top of the card, I added a label and a bit of washi tape, also included in Storyteller.
I hope you are inspired to use all of the butterfly images and patterned paper from the stunning Storyteller collection! Be sure to follow me (@victoriamariescraps) and the American Crafts Design Team on Instagram for more creative inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!
