Hello everyone and welcome to our blog! It’s Eva on the blog today a tutorial on how to create a colorful edge for your next scrapbook layout.
Here in Chile, we celebrate Christmas during the summer, we receive bikes and all sorts of summer toys! My husband is from Italy and he misses the snow and cold days, he says it doesn’t feel like Christmas because it is hot and sunny! For this layout, I decided to scrapbook a picture of my little boy while he decorated the tree. I can’t believe how much he has grown in a year!
To create the colorful edge I used washi tape. I love how simple this is and it really helps your layout to stand out!
Simply put different lengths of washi tape over the edge and wrap the edges at the end of the page.
Use different patterns and put one on top of the other to get a cool look!
Once my edge was complete, I used the ephemera to create a ” Christmas village” around my photo. Tip: Use 3d dots to give some dimension to a few elements.
Next, I used my Magnetic Mat to create perfectly aligned lines for my journaling.
I love these Wood Thickers! they are perfect to create titles and add a handwritten element to your page!
The designs of this collection are colorful and fun. The elves add a playful element and the wood pattern is lovely don’t you think?
The snowflakes are also one of my favorites, I love chipboard elements!
And here’s my final page! the colorful edge gives the layout a nice touch and I didn’t use any patterned paper! I love simple layouts, there’s no excuse for not saving the lovely memories during this busy holiday season.
Thanks for joining me and have a great day!
