All Smiles Here! by Niki Rowland

Hi everyone! This is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) with two new layouts and videos using Say Cheese at the Park Collection. The collection is Disney themed but also works for celebration photos and any theme park photos I think. I love that it’s versatile. I have lots of Disney photos to scrap though, so I delved into my old photo stack! 



I love all the happy bright colours in this collection and wanted to showcase the patterned papers. For my first layout I chose a few of my favourites and cut them into strips. I cut these into banner shapes, distressed the edges and sewed around the edges of each with my sewing machine. 

I popped my photos into one of the gorgeous Chipboard frames and then arranged the frame together with all the banners onto the layout.



I then had fun building up my embellishment clusters. I went for one either side of the photos and also added a small one at the top of the layout. I used embellishments from the Bits & Pieces, the Chipboard Stickers, the Decorative Brads and the Foam Stickers.  

I added a few label stickers from the Sticker Book, handwrote my journaling onto one of the banners and then finished off each of my clusters with Enamel Dots, a few sequins and splatters of black paint! 



I felt my layout needed a border so I trimmed down the white background and made a patterned paper boarder from that fabulous red spotty paper. I didn’t have a full 12x12 sheet so I just cut 1” strips and pieced them all together!



I love the brightness of this layout and was happy to have showcased so many patterned papers, I love how it turned out!  Here is the Process Video link:  



For my second layout, I wanted to make a feature out of the castle paper. I cut it out and then used it as a template to create a yellow circle to back it. I added two more layers of patterned paper circles to this, resulting in a ‘glow’ around the castle!  I was aiming to create a feel of fireworks behind the castle. 



I positioned the castle onto a piece of white cardstock and then added long stitches in the same colours as the papers I’d already used: red, yellow and black. 

I made three rosettes from patterned paper strips and added these to the top of the layout and I got my photos in place too, after mounting then on journaling cards. 



For my title I used the cute letters from the Sticker Book. I stuck them to white card first and cut out the words leaving a narrow white border. I put this onto the castle feature. 



I added a few embellishments using the Foam Stickers, Decorative Brads, Chipboard Stickers and Puffy Stickers. I also added a few Enamel Dots and a few splatters of black paint! Here is the link to my Process Video which I hope you enjoy watching: 



Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you enjoy using the Say Cheese at the Park collection to capture all your magical memories! Happy scrapping!
