Create a Scrapbook Layout by Mixing Patterns with the Textile Collection

Hi, everyone! Have you seen the Cloth, Timber and Stone papers? WOW, the patterns are gorgeous! It really was hard selecting only a few patterns on my layout because I wanted to use them all. Keep reading to find out what patterns I decided on!

A few weeks ago, my son was really sick for 5 days. One night, he asked if I would snuggle with him and watch Woody Woodpecker with him in his bed. While we were watching the movie, I whipped out my phone to take a few pictures. The pictures are a little dark and we aren’t looking our best, but it’s about sharing those moments!!! That is why I am scrapbooking in the first place. 🙂


To create this 12×12 scrapbook layout, you will need:

To begin, I used the white stone paper for the base of the layout. Then, I used the 12-inch Straight Trimmer to cut the white timber patterned paper down to 11″ x 11″ and adhered it to the centre of the base. Next, I cut a strip of the brown timber paper to measure 12″ x  1/4″  then added it to the left side of the white patterned paper to create a thin border.


I used the Custom Cutting System and the Circle Patterns to cut three circles (red blade inside the circle) to cut through the patterns. Then, I flipped the page over and covered the holes using other patterns from the Stone, Timber and Cloth Paper Packs.

Once my circles were complete, I matted my photo strip to the white cloth paper, tearing the left side and adhered it with another strip to the layout as shown. I used Foam Squares to use the scraps from when I cut the background circles to overlap the other circles.


While I was creating this layout, I thought the Archiver’s™ Laser Cut Embellishments and Laser Cut Borders would look fantastic with the colour palette… so I pulled them out and used them to embellish the layout. I am loving this layout so much!


To complete the layout, I used a Black-Dual Tip Pen to hand-journal my story. Have you used these paper packs yet? I am in love! And if you have boys, these patterns and embellishments are perfect for documenting those family moments.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I can’t wait to see what others do with these paper packs and embellishments. Comment below and tell us your thoughts!
