I love details and layers in my scrapbooking, and when I saw the new Handmade Layers collection I squealed with delight!! I do love my hand written journaling on my layouts, and these banners and journaling papers are just the thing for some springtime scrapbooking fun.
What I had the most fun with was using the journaling elements as my key pieces, and just adding bits of paper, stitching, and a few jewels and such to compliment the simple page. I often have so many random notes that I want to share about a photo or moment in time – and I really like the end result.
The details in the Handmade Layers collection really inspired me to punch bits of paper, add colorful stitching, and otherwise add detail and layers to my creation. Love it!
Speaking of wanting to share – I have a new class now open for registration that is all about scrapbooking + fun at Big Picture Classes. I’d love to give a seat away to one of you lovely blog readers here at Elle’s Studio – so just leave a comment to be entered to win! One winner will be drawn on Wednesday, March 30th!
