And now it’s time to scrap your stash. Today I’m talking about using up those embellishment sets.
- Design Inspiration: When I saw this layout by Cindy Tobey I was drawn to all the triangles. It reminded me of a set of cardstock diamond embellishments I had. So I decided to frame my photo with diamonds similarly to how Cindy used triangles in her layout.
- Color Inspiration: I knew I wanted to tell the story of my husband’s obsession with super hero t-shirts so I went with super hero colors on my layout.
I started the design by laying out the diamonds I had. Then I traced the shape onto some pieces of patterned paper to add more diamonds as well as color to my layout. I also traced the shape onto a couple of Project Life journaling cards. To add a bit of dimension I decided to use pop dots on a few of the diamond shapes. I also backed the diamonds with patterned paper so that the cut outs would really shine.
It took a bit of playing around to get it all looking cohesive, but I love the end result!
I finished by adding my title and journaling as well as a few enamel shapes to bring a touch more interest to a few of the blank diamonds.
My husband is not seen quite as often in my scrapbooks simply because I don’t have as many every day life photos of him. So I loved that I could finally scrap a story that spoke to who he is right now. Because he truly is my own personal super hero!
