Aloha! Scrapbooking Layout


What supplies go well with which kind of project? When it comes to Simon Says Stamp exclusives, I believe they’re good for all kinds of paper crafting! Hello everyone – May Flaum here to share a scrapbook layout that I created with several favorite Simon Says Stamp exclusive products. One of my favorite kind of layouts to make is to take plain white cardstock and let my color mediums, stencils, and die cuts take over.

The first thing I did was to die cut the butterfly tendrils die and color it with watercolors. I set this aside to dry while I built the background for my layout featuring two 4×6 photos.


I very carefully and gently colored this leaf stencil with sea glass ink. This is so subtle it will barely show up, but it makes a great base layer. Then I took that same stencil and “stamped” it with fern ink.


The next step – you guessed it – I “stamped” that inked up stencil right onto my page! I love this look and how it adds a fun sketchy leaf look to my layout.


Next up, time to add a few droplets of mist. I like to remove the top and just flick wherever I want nice big droplets. This lets me get more of a splatter and less of a misted look.


Here is my finished layout. To pull this all together I attached the previously watercolored dies, added some stitching, title, journaling, and I also stamped the new Simon alpha background stamp in a few places for added contrast. I just love how this turned out – and how quickly too!
