Creative Scrappers #282

Happy Sunday, friends!  It's already time for another new Creative Scrappers sketch!  If you love layering, then this one is for you.  Lots of fun opportunities for paper layers and embellishment layers!

Here's what I created.  I used the Crate Paper Open Book collection.  This line is just beyond beautiful, and it's overflowing with embellishments.  It's really hard to choose which ones to use because there are so many.  I decided on using this striped paper as my background and add lots of color on top of it.  Although I'm happy with this layout, it's not my favorite.  I can't pinpoint why...I love all the elements, but I just feel like something is missing.  That's just me over-analyzing's just scrapbooking, right?! :D

Here's a closer look at the layers I created.  In place of the circles on the sketch, I used vellum.  I also added in sequins and gold thread.  I love this scalloped chipboard banner...I just had to use it here.

More layers.  I used pop dots under the photos and the title.  It's amazing how raising up a few of your elements can really add some depth to the design.  Aren't those little gold banner pieces so cute?  There is an entire sheet of gold stickers in this collection.

One last image of the top layers.  I did use several rub-ons throughout the page as well.  They're really pretty and so much fun to use.  And I wish I could just use gold thread to stitch on everything in's soooo pretty.

Don't forget the prize up for grabs this month is sponsored by Paper Camellia, an awesome kit club.  Be sure to upload your layouts using sketches 181 and/or 182 over on the blog to be eligible to win.  The deadline is at midnight EST on November 30th.

  1. I totally relate to that feeling with some of my own pages, Missy. But this is perfectly scrumptious! So many beautiful details, and those pics are perfect! Loved this take on the sketch, but then, it's Missy ;). You never disappoint, girl.

  2. I think it's beautiful Missy! The b&w photos really stand out and I love the look of the striped background, with the brighter papers and embellishment pieces!!
