Hi everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) with two new layouts and process videos using the Life Captured Collection. I adore the colours in this collection and there are so many lovely phrases that are perfect for everyday life.
I’ve made traditional 12x12 layouts with this collection but it would also be perfect for pocket style scrapbooking.
For this layout I have chosen a sheet from the 6x8 Paper Pad and made this the feature of my layout. The phrase ‘Follow your heart’ is on a clipboard. I fussy cut out the clipboard and distressed the edges.
I love the soft pink ledger paper from the 12x12 paper collection and chose to use this for the main part of my background. I trimmed it down a little, and used a notebook border punch to create a border down the left side and then mounted it onto a sheet of white card, at an angle.
I layered the Follow Your Heart clipboard with two of the Chipboard Frames and also added my photo, mounted onto more patterned paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad and a noticeboard ephemera piece from the Bits & Pieces.
I embellished the layout with Chipboard Stickers and more ephemera from the Bits & Pieces pack, including paper tabs, flowers, a globe and hearts. I also used a few stickers from the Cardstock Stickers: three phrase stickers and the long scalloped blue border sticker – I cut this into sections and placed them either side of the pink background to give a pop of colour.
I finished off with a little bit of journaling and some splatters of white paint. Here is the link to the process video if you would like to watch along: https://youtu.be/jTeR-QP_YKo
For my second layout using Life Captured, I’ve made another traditional 12x12 layout, but this collection is also perfect for pocket-style scrapbooking, so if you do that then you should definitely check out this collection!
I decided to scrap a school photo of my daughter. She’s just started secondary school and was the only one from her primary school to go there, so she knew no one. She’s so brave and confident, and when I saw a whole page of noticeboard affirmations in the Life Captured Sticker Book, I knew these would be perfect on a layout about her and her new school journey.
I stuck all the affirmations onto some white card and trimmed around them so they all had white edges. I selected two papers from the Life Captured 12x12 papers, the blue ditsy heart paper and the kraft with white dots. The blue pattern was perfect as the photo has a blue background so this worked well.
I added my photo to a clipboard ephemera that was from the Journal Bits and then started arranging all the elements onto the layout. I trimmed down both the papers and arranged them, offset, onto a white card background. I then arranged the clipboard and 11 affirmations onto the layout in row formation – it reminds me of a giant noticeboard!
I embellished the layout with lots of stationery items that I selected from the Bits & Pieces and Chipboard Stickers. I popped these up on foam pads to give the layout lots of dimension.
I made my title using the little tile stickers from the Sticker Book which I stuck onto white card and trimmed out. I also used the number ‘7’ from the Bits & Pieces.
I finished off by handwriting my journaling and adding some splatters of white paint. Here is the process video link for this layout: https://youtu.be/baAPF9bKWeA
Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
