Scrapbook Live with Meggan February 1, 2023

I will be going live on my Facebook page at 10:00 am PT on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. If you can’t join me for the FB Live, the recording will be available to watch later on Facebook or you can find it on my YouTube Channel. I will also add it to this blog post along with a photo of my final layout.

The Layout

Last week we had a lot of fun with the mosaic frame – a bit of a technical challenge, but the results were well worth a few curses. πŸ™‚ This week I am dialing it back a bit to something that is simpler, but still a visually stunning page. I plan to make a few minor changes to the layout to accommodate using the Circle and Love Letters Punches from Creative Memories.

You can see the original blog layout HERE.

For my demo layout I made the strips 12 x 1-3/4″ wide so I could punch the ends with the Circle Punch. This left me with a smaller space for the horizontal photos, but I was okay leaving off the mat and adjusted to include one 3-7/8″ square photo as well as a 4-1/2 x 3-7/8″ photo.

The circle photos were cut with Circle #3 (largest circle pattern) using the red blade on the inside track. To mat the photos, I used white shimmer paper and cut circles with the Circle Cutter which allowed me to dial in a circle that was approximately 3.7″ in diameter. This mat was less ‘chunky’ than a mat made with Circle #1 (smallest circle pattern) and the red blade on the outside track. A smaller mat meant it was easier to cluster the photos close together.

I added a bit of embellishment with the (retired) Daisy Bouquet punch.
