Good morning everyone! I am excited to share my first layout with you using Creative Memories’ newest collection, Imagine! Ah, I just love, love, love, this collection. When I first received this collection, I thought it would work beautifully for a birthday layout since I haven’t scrapbooked Edward’s 7th birthday party!
To create this 12×12 layout, you will need:
- Imagine Designer Paper Pack
- Imagine Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack
- Imagine Designer Sticker Pack
- Imagine Mat Pack
- Blue Dual-Tip Pen
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- Personal Trimmer
- Tape Runner
- Foam Squares
For this layout, I wanted to focus on using a variety of photos. I took several photos at Edward’s party, but these are my favourite. Some of the photos aren’t perfect; they are a little blurry, but that’s OK!
To begin, I used the 12×12 yellow and white striped Imagine Tone-on-Tone Paper for the base. I cut the black and white polka dot paper down to 11″x6″ using the 12-inch Straight Trimmer then adhered it about a 1/2″ from the top of the layout, centering the paper to allow a 1/2″ yellow and white striped border. Then I cut the doodled circle patterned paper from the Imagine Designer Paper Pack to 12″x6″ and adhered it below the black and white polka dot rectangle.
Then I used the Personal Trimmer to trim 4 4″x6″ photos down to the size of 4″x4″. I used the Mat pack to mat the photos and trimmed the edges.
I adhered two photos approximately 1″ from the bottom of the base. I adhered the journaling Mat Pack above the photo, tucking the bottom of the card behind the photo to just show the lines to journal my story. Then I adhered two more photos covering most of the top portion of the mat so that only 3 journaling lines showed.
I used the “Love This Place!” and “Say Cheese” stickers to fill in the space to cover the gap between the journaling mat and photos. Then I used the Blue Dual-Tip Pen to hand-journal my story.
To complete the layout, I added a few more stickers using a few Foam Squares. I had so much fun with these stickers!
What do you think about this collection? I think it’s absolutely adorable and I totally love the color scheme. I can’t wait to scrapbook another layout using this collection!
Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have a fantastic day!
