Today's challenge at Frosted Designs is to use only solid colored paper. The easiest layout for me to create was a Disney layout!
I saw a similar layout and adapted it. I used Mickey Font for the words and Mickey head. I used George for the stars.
I used my Gypsy to lay the letters out the way I wanted them, then used the negative piece as a template to glue the letters down.
This was one of the very first tricks I learned with my Gypsy and I use it all the time!
I used an acrylic stamp to create a tag for journalin. I positioned the stamp on the paper so the top of the tag image was not on my tag.
Since the plain paper needed a little something, I grabbed my ribbon stash and buttons!
I also needed to put extra pictures on this layout, so I made a flip up (self-coined term). I take cardstock twice as long as the photos, fold it in half like a card, glue it to the page and cover the remaining 3 sides with photos or journaling. I put a little ribbon tab on one corner for easy lifting.
I glued only the sides and bottom of the red paper on the bottom of the page to make a pocket. This way I can add additional pictures, maps and other memorabilia. I have 4 trips in the last 4 years to scrapbook and I am a picture taker!!!
Here is my finished layout (minus the photos) once again. I added some buttons and ribbon to break up the solid colors.
