Hi Everyone!! Renee here, I am so excited about National Scrapbooking Day!I wanted to show you guys one of , well- two of- my favorite techniques which of course- are layering and clustering embellishments. I’m not even sure what I love about it, maybe it’s that I can use so much of my stuff and don’t have to pick when making a page! Or also the fact I can be creative and make anything in to an embellishment. I am the last one who gets to share a little about my crafty habits today – here you go!
What’s your favorite type of paper crafting? My favorite type of paper crafting is simply doing 12×12 pages. I just love all the space and different ways I can take it with creativity!
Where do you go for inspiration? I usually go to Instagram for inspiration. There’s so many creative people out there and I love being inspired by their work in a million different ways. I also am often inspired by a collection in general- reminds me of pictures I haven’t thought of in a while.
Where do you do your crafting? I craft often just in bed. I bring my rolly carts on over, turn on the T.V. and get comfy with my blankets; then go to town.
What are your favorite crafting tools? My favorite crafting tools are probably Scrapbook Adhesive, various products as well as my Silhouette Cameo.
What are your favorite Paper House products? I love the Paper House Collection Cut Apart Sheets- I use them as embellishments or in my pocket scrapbooking page. There’s so many ways to utilize them!
What are your favorite colors to work with? I am drawn to anything bright and colorful! Makes me happy!
How would you describe your crafting style? A hot mess. That’s how I would describe it, I seem to just like to use as much as I can while still trying to feature the picture/item on the page.
Do you like it quiet while you work or do you have music or tv on? I am always watching TV even though, I have to rewind it often to actually pay attention. It’s how I get through my DVR list and get my work done at the same time.
What’s your go to snack/drink while you craft? I don’t think I have a particular go-to; give me all the foods.
For this layout I used the Paper House line, One Big Happy Family to document this early picture of my sister’s family. I love this picture so much and the fact it was already in sepia tones- made it easy to work with this line. I layered behind the photo with different cut aparts along with forming clusters with stickers and fussy cutting of some of the papers. On the bottom of the page, I cut the border from the cut apart sheet along with a little of another page layered them together to place behind a paper I fussy ripped on the top. I couldn’t stop with my little clusters so I added some on both sides of the bottom segment of the page. I just can’t get enough!! I love utilizing as much as I can of my supplies and this is the best way I know how!
