Is anyone like me and has a huge box filled with memories that aren't on display? I've slowly been trying to get back into scrapbooking and the last set in this months release from Kraftin Kimmie is perfect for framing those memories! 

I've gone with a clean and simple layout today, not sure if there is such a thing in the scrapbook world however I love how elegant the page turned out! This page includes photo's from my wedding. My husband and myself, top left my maid of honour who is also my sister in law and bottom left my bridesmaids. My two step daughters and our nieces.

Scrapbook layout recipe:

1. Take a blank page in your scrapbook, mine is black background paper however any background colour would work, you could also use a black backing sheet first for the same look as mine if you would like.

2. Stamp images on alcohol marker friendly card stock and colour in your favourite medium. As this page layout uses my wedding photos I have reached for my Spectrum Noir Triblend Coral blends. This colour matches what my bridesmaids wore perfectly! I have coloured quite roughly with no real need to worry about light source on images etc I wanted them to not look so perfect!

To cut out the squares in the image I took a small square die I had in my stash, you could fussy cut them too if you don't have a die to hand.

3. Take a nice scripty piece of patterned paper. I've taken an elegant piece from the Scrappy Boy Stamps Wonderland paper pack. It's 6x6 and I like how it looks centrally in my scrapbook so I am going to use the whole piece

4. Take the new Krafty Fancy Fireworks stencils and an ink colour of your choice, as my background is black unless I used white ink or pastes it's always going to be a very light affect, the pics don't show it as well as it does in person however I only wanted to create a very subtle background so it's almost tone on tone.

5. Cut your photos to size,  so they can be stuck into your die cut areas. I am using adhesive glue to stick the images into their place.

6. Lastly stamp your sentiment onto alcohol marker friendly card stock too, cut it out either straight like I have or with a banner die if you wish and colour in the same colour as the frames so they all match

Place the images evenly around the page until you are happy with the look.

I really hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration and I will be sure to be sharing more scrapbook layouts in the future! 

Now hop around to see what the design team have been up to and be sure to check to the live release party later today for your chance to win some krafty $$!

Until next time, happy crafting!
