Starting with a blank page can be an intimidating way to begin a layout. The following scrapbook techniques are perfect for pairing with this month's "Hey Girl" Kit, or just tuck them into your back pocket for a time when your creative mojo is low. Either way, we hope they’ll help inspire your next project!
Count It Out
On her layout, 1-10, Lisa Truesdell highlighted each day of her family vacation with a mix of vellum numbers, stamping, and letter stickers. This is a great way to document an overview of an entire trip or event!
Kelly Noel used the large vellum numbers from the "Hey Girl" Scrapbook Kit to list out five things about her middle child on her layout, 5 Things About You. Listing is a great journaling prompt to help you get your stories told!
On her page, The 2, Anna-Maria Wolniak created a sea of stunning blue with a tone-on-tone design. Starting with a bright blue base, she added layers of blue patterned paper, a large vellum number 2 and similarly colored embellishments for a stunning result.
Maggie Massey went with shades of green for a tone-on-tone design on her layout, Day Trip. A green frame of patterned paper, the green washi strip through the middle, and cool-toned photos create a cohesive look on her page.
On her sweet layout, Cuddle Up, guest designer Mandie Pierce separated her page into thirds by featuring the large strip of black and white dotted patterned paper at the top of her page. The remaining two-thirds of her page feature her photo and journaling.
Kelly Noel used the two-thirds technique to her advantage on her layout, 10 Years. She put the transparent specialty paper to work for subtle texture in a third of her page and let colorful elements shine in the remaining two-thirds.
Mandie Pierce used the transparent specialty paper from the "Hey Girl" Scrapbook kit in a big way on her layout, V. Sattui. By pairing it with contrasting patterned papers under her photo, she achieved a bold look on her page.
The design possibilities are endless with the "Hey Girl" Kits and May add-ons. Which scrapbooking technique do you plan on trying out this month? Post your creations in the gallery and add a link in the comments. We can't wait to see what you'll make!
