Not Your Average Layout

Happy New Year scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy. I'm so happy to be here with you all today. I have a really simple, fun layout to share with you. This December was incredibly busy and somewhat overwhelming, but really special and miraculous as well.

Now that the holidays are over and life is getting back on track I have a lot of scrapbooking to catch up on, so I decided I'm going to take it easy on myself. I purchased some divided page protectors from American Crafts, which you can see here. This is my first time using them and I have to tell you it was a lot of fun and so easy.

I started by printing three 4x6 photos. Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut a title and accents for my page. As a side note, I love my Cameo! I use thick cardstock, primarily Papertrey Ink, and it cuts beautifully, even thin details like you can see in the picture below.

I added some color mist to my cardstock. You should know, I make a big mess if I spray the paper while it's on my desk, so now I have a designated "misting" box.

It's a little difficult to tell from the picture below but I tested out where I wanted to adhere embellishments by placing the photos/paper in the pocket and then laying stickers, buttons, etc to the plastic. I also added stick pins to the layout by pushing them into dimensional adhesive. You can see that in the bottom right of the picture below.

A couple close-ups of my layout.

The Details:
  • Pattern Paper: October Afternoon 'Sidewalks'
  • Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
  • Silhouette Cameo: images from Silhouette online store
  • Stickers: October Afternoon
  • Star Stick Pins: Maya Road
  • Stamp: Technique Tuesday 'It's Ok'
  • White Embossing Powder-Stampendous
  • Sprinkler/Mist-October Afternoon 'Brown Bag'
  • Buttons: My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found"
  • Twine: The Twinery
  • Border Punch: Fiskars 'Apron Lace'
  • White Gel Pen
If you're looking for permission, I'm going to give it to you now...go easy on yourself. I love traditional 12x12 layouts, but I will admit, they take time. Allowing myself to use one of these divided page protectors saved me time, and right now that's important to me.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share with you today. I hope to see you back here soon!
