Cardstock Paper Foliage Vacation Scrapbook Layout

0 comments / Posted on

How many vacation photos do you have? I have thousands. I love each memory they represent but often find it hard to find coordinating products for the mood of the photo. I don’t always want to use the same embellishments and pattern paper to create my scrapbook layouts. Sometimes I want something simpler that really let my photo be the star. By using a simple cut file I was able to capture the mood of my photo without going super theme-y.

To start, you will need:

  • cutting machine or punches
  • tape runner
  • liquid glue
  • Glue Dots
  • Photo
  • Optional embellishments:
    • Alpha/cut-file for the title
    • Sequins

To start, choose the colors that you feel represent your photo. I chose to go with a variety of greens, including a glitter cardstock for added sparkle. You could easily choose to go with the fun bright colors in the Pop-Tone collection (I think I have a new idea for my next layout!).  

Next choose a cut file. There are many available on the Cricut or Silhouette Design Store and other places on the Internet. The cut file I chose is from Ink Road Stamps. Cut the leaves out in varying sizes in the various colors. If you are looking for more information on die-cutting check out the detailed post here.

The next step is assembling your layout. I first practiced laying out my leaves on my white cardstock background. Once I was happy with the layout, I started adhering the leaves down using my tape runner.

Last, I used foam adhesive to adhere my photo to my layout and glued my title in place. My title is also a cut file from Ink Road Stamps. The only extra embellishment I added was some green sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps. I used Glue Dots from Cardstock Warehouse to adhere these down. It’s the least messy way to adhere sequins down that I have found.
