Happy Friday 3 Birds Fans! It’s Juliana from 17turtles. Today, I want to share a very special scrapbook page with you. These photos are from the baptism of my great niece this past July. It was such a wonderful experience. My husband and I feel so blessed to have been a part of this moment and I wanted to create a special scrapbook page to record this special day.
As soon as I saw the Graceful Season collection, I knew it would be perfect for scrapbooking the photos from the baptism. I choose to do a regular 12 x 12 layout of these photos of my great niece being baptized. I have three other photos from this moment that I wanted to keep together in my album however, I choose to put them in a pocket style page. To see my coordinating pocket style scrapbook page entitled “Joy” and to learn some tips for using layered embellishments in pocket page protectors, please visit my blog: 17turtles.
I was inspired by the stain glass windows in the background of the photos to create the triangle shaped pieces that I placed behind the photos and other embellishments.
To help ground the triangle shapes, I cut 1/2″ strips from the green patterned paper then layered them over the triangles in various places. This also helps to draw the eye over the page and at the same time keeping your focused on the photos.
DESIGNER TIP | To get the look of stitching or a border without using a sewing machine, take a marker and ruler and draw a border or stitches along the outer edge of the paper.
I love to layer embellishments and the Sticky Sparkly chipboard pieces are perfect for this. I selected a variety of shapes that coordinated with the papers I was using and clustered them in the bottom right hand corner.
