Also, you can see more kids scrapbook layouts on our blog through this link here: Larkindesign Kids Scrapbook Layouts. Let’s check out our layout today for Natalie’s 8th birthday.
This layout was inspired by just one piece of patterned paper from The Stamp Market! It came in the Miss Modern kit from Clique Kits, and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use my circle punches. Don’t you just love when a product inspires you immediately?
My first step was to print out photos at just about 3.25″x3.25″ square, and then I punched them using a 3″ punch. I punched other elements from the patterned paper using the 3″, 2″, and 1.75″ circle punch as well. The idea was to have several sizes of circles on the page.
I decided to use this adorable polka dot patterned paper as my background. This made all the white circles show up a bit better. I decided to use the back of a n 8 chipboard shape from Freckled Fawn, so it would be white as well. Some of the white elements seemed to fade into the background, and so I added word strips from the kit to help them come back into the layout.
I added my journaling near the bottom of the page, just writing a paragraph and then underlining with messy lines. One of my favorite elements of this layout are the colorful rainbow hearts from Colorcast Designs! They create a great pop of color following the line of the circles down the page!
To add a bit more contrast on the page, I stamped a circular word sentiment around a few of the photos using the stamp set in the kit. Using black ink helps make the edges of these photos pop and also gives them presence on this page!
So many fun details on this page! I hope you are inspired to create. See you again soon!
