Recently I added a couple of fun page kits to the Etsy store in the form of digital downloads. Digital downloads meaning that the images are in .pdf format that you print on your own computer and cut yourself. (They will soon be available pre-cut, but I just haven’t gotten that far yet.)
I’m highlighting these kits today and have used them in my own scrapbook layouts as examples of what can be done with them.
DH whisked me away to this lovely place a couple weeks ago for a quick getaway. Lovely, yes? I became facinated with the colors in the room. A beautiful shade of blue and brown. I used some of the many, many photos I took of the room to create this page kit.
The kit contains journaling spots and prompts as well as buttons, heart embellishments, a frame, a bird, scallop edges, and a date prompt.
Here is how I used it in with a photo of DH and I from about 5 years ago (we look so young!).
I managed to use every piece of the page kit in this scrapbook layout except for one of the heart embellishments. Having the kit made this page come together much faster than it normally would take me to make it. I didn’t have to dig through all of my scrapbook stash to find matching embellishments because I didn’t need much other than what was already in the kit.
I used Pop Dots under bird and placed it over the “love notes” journal spot making it all look like one big embellishment. I found some matching blue felt flowers in my stash and inked the edges of them with brown distress ink. I layered the scallop edges, and used a felt flower on the heart embellishment.
I inked the paper with a flourish stamp just to the left of the first letter of each word and used the same ink and stamp to ink the plastic letters themselves (Heidi Swapp). I love the look it gave them!
I used the fancy-edged journaling spot as an embellishment behind the photo. I wrapped some white tulle ribbon around another one of the heart embellishments. I recorded the date on the date prompt and tucked it behind the photo, too, but its loose and can be pulled out to look at later (like hidden journaling).
I added contrasting ribbon to each of the buttons and lined them up on the bottom right corner of the layout. I also used a border stamp to ink a border all the way around the page.
Not bad for starting out with a plain piece of 12×12 cardstock!
Next I’m featuring the I Love You page kit.
This kit would be great for Valentine’s Day or any other *love* themed layout. It contains a journaling spot, library card (also can be used as a journaling spot), bingo card, various heart embellishments, clocks, scallop edges, date prompt, frame, buttons, and a ticket.
I printed the kit twice, once on white cardstock and once on pink cardstock. I mixed the two sets of embellishments to make this layout of DH and I celebrating our 6th anniversary last year.
Again, this scrapbook layout came together pretty quickly since almost every embellishment on the page came from the page kit.
Here I paired one of the heart embellishments and button with a homemade paper rose (a la this post, tutorial included). You can also see how I used the scallop edges on the photo by lining them up back to back and adding a layer of ribbon down the middle.
I stamped the date of our anniversary on the library card and tucked it behind the photo. I also used the ticket and clock as embellishments here. You can see the clock is on white cardstock while the library card and ticket are on pink. I like how they contrast!
I had a series of photos highlighting various things we saw and did that I wanted to include in the layout. I layered these at the top of the layout and used the frame around the photo of the mill because that is where the larger picture of the two of us was also taken.
I used the bingo card, journaling spot, and one of the heart embellishments to make my own unique journaling spot. Its tucked being the black scalloped paper.
If you like either of these two page kits, they are available in my Etsy store as digital downloads. They really do make putting a scrapbook layout easier and faster to put together!
