Adore - Creative Scrapbooker Magazine

Feb 14, 2019

HI Friends, welcome to my blog today.

I am up on the Creative Scrapbooker Blog today! 

 Today i am sharing a quick and easy, winter scrapbook layout with you using papers from the Kaisercraft Wonderland Paper Collection.  ( link here:  https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/newsite/collections.php?col=282) 


I know sometimes we want to fit as many photos as we can on a layout, but often times we are able to capture a special moment and that photo deserves a full page.  This photo is of my friends grandson Boston, I am so grateful she let me scrapbook him.

To start off, i used the Wonderland snowfall for my background, cutting out a one inch frame all the way around and I matted a 11 .75 x 11.75 dark blue cardstock on top.


 Realizing this color would be too dark for my layout i decided to add another cardstock mat on top of that measuring 11x11. My cut out from the background paper is now my background and this measures 10.75 x 10.75.

The photo i used is 5x7 and has a 5.25 x 7.25 white photo mat.  I decided to cut a piece from the wonderland frost paper measuring 7.5 x 7.5 i lightly inked the edges with peacock feathers distress ink and used foam adhesive to adhere this to my main background paper.

The shapes of the snowflakes reminded me of some chipboard i had in my stash from 2 Crafty Chipboard ( link here https://www.2crafty.com.au/)  and i decided to add some pieces in to add further embellishments and texture.


I colored all the chipboard on this layout the same way, inking with Ranger Ink Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistaschio.  and then i dabbed a bit of Vintage Gold Wax from prima just to add some detail.




I rarely create a project where i dont incorporate flowers, so i added some Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony flowers to this layout using Black archival ink to stamp them on Creative Scrapbooker Cardstock; and i colored them by using Ranger Distress Inks, Antique Linen in the center and Cracked Pistachio on the outside. 

Then adding just a dab of Peacock Feathers on the outside edges These colors blended in perfectly for this project.


I wanted to add a title and used the mini word Adore, also from 2 Crafty Chipboard. The frame on the photo was colored the same way and frames the photo beautifully.

I added Sweet Peony flowers to each corner of my layout to keep your eye centered on that gorgeous photo of Boston!

I would love to see your projects using Chipboard and hand made flowers, they add the perfect embellishment to any project.
