Hello lovelies, today I am so excited to have Neftali Zambrano join us on the blog! Feel free to learn more about her amazing work on her page via this link here: Neftali Zambrano.
Hi there, it’s Neftali here for the first time, and gosh, I am so excited to be here! I am so happy to share with you my first project as part of the Larkindesign Creative Team. Sort of like a celebratory layout for you all! I am so excited to be working with Theresa’s hybrid products. If you are feeling like hybrid scrapbooking is something new for you, it’s okay! But if you want to try it out, even better!
But first, let me tell you, I am so honored that I am able to work on this team because I will also be able to try new things! I have occasionally used bits of hybrid products throughout my scrapbooking, and it was always fun to do it. But I am also quite a newbie and there’s so many kinds of projects I’d like to try now that I have access to some pretty awesome products. I have so much planned to share with you and also to be able to take on the beautiful Larkindesign products and use them in so many different ways!
So because I am coming to you for the first time, I wanted to create a special layout as my “first project.” These are always special to me as I create them with so much love and excitement!
I decided to use Theresa’s Adventure Mini Collection for a few reasons. First of all, I love all the fun colors in the cards: the pinks, and blueish mints, and even orange!

The colors were calling my name. However, I also wanted to use these specific cards because they were accidentally printed in the wrong size. Yep, it happens to even the best of us sometimes. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t still get good use out of wrongly sized pocket page cards. They are still beautiful even if printed smaller or larger, and this gives you the perfect reason to think outside the box.
So, since mine were printed TOO small, I decided that I could take the cards and patterns to create a really fun and colorful layout. Here it is:
I scrapped a photo of my son standing in front of a pretty water fountain, so I added the title “Cherish Every Little Adventure.”
I was amazed at how many different bits and pieces from different collections I was able to mix on my page that complemented the cards so well!
I decided to create sort of like a gallery effect with the cards in the center of my page. The were all arranged randomly in the center, above a bit if mixed media.
Then I added quite a few mixed die cuts, chipboards, enamel dots, and even acetate pieces to finish off my central cluster.
I then backed my white paper onto a colorful patterned paper by Echo Park that matched amazingly with this Mini Collection!
That’s how this fun layout came to be.
So friends, thanks for having me today and I promise I will be back soon with more inspiration. I hope you are all as excited as we are here at Larkindesign to be bringing you inspiration from our Creative Team!
I wanted to add that I have an About Me page on the blog, and I want to invite you all to come over if you ever want to learn a bit more about me.
Also, if you are interested in purchasing the Adventure Digital Mini Collection you can find it here.
So that’s it for today! I’m so happy you stopped by. Come by later this week as a few more of us from the Creative Team will be coming in to introduce ourselves and our projects.
Until next time, stay crafty!
