Hi everyone! Tori here with a scrapbooking process and showing you how I printed one of the digital designs from the shop right onto a patterened paper. I am working with the patterned papers from The Heart Is Home collection.
I’m so excited about the way this scrapbook layout worked out. I think my favourite part is the background and I wasn’t sure if it was going to work out – so when it did I felt like jumping for joy. I opened the Floral design, stuck the patterned paper (Felicity Jane Summer Collection) into my printer and pressed print. Seriously, it was that easy. Now my printer was almost out of ink so it printed a lot lighter than I had originally intended but I actually love that. So if you want to recreate that lighter effect, I recommend opening the design in photoshop or illustrator and turning down the opacity – maybe to 50% – and trying that.
Isn’t it pretty! I think after I printed it I just sat and stroked the paper for 5 minutes because I was so excited. I also texted Theresa photos because I couldn’t help but share my excitement.
I knew I wanted to take this great background and use it on a really special page so I took a look through my camera roll and found this image of a quote that I had screenshot. The quote said, “I hope that someday when I’m gone, someone, somewhere picks my soul up off the page and thinks, ‘I would have loved her.'” I don’t know what it is about that quote but I love it! I love how it speaks exactly to how I feel about scrapbooking and my hopes and dreams for my scrapbooks.
I then pulled out all of my different letter stickers, thickers, chipboard aphas and puffy sticker alphas and wrote out the quote on the left hand side of the page. I used one of my favourite selfies from recently, added a doily and some tissue paper and created some layers.
I then finished off the layout by stamping the date, adding some sequins and some final details like a large gold paper clip and a little pink bow. Oh my goodness I love how this turned out.
If you’d like to check out the process video and see how I put it all together you can find that here…
Thank you so much for joining me. I hope you’ll try printing one of the awesome digital files from the store on some of your patterned paper. xoxo, Tori
