Hello crafty friends! I’m scrapbooking today and sharing a process video using some amazing products sent to the Tombow Design Team for National Scrapbook Day from our partners at DCWV, Paper House, Graphic 45, Amy Tangerine and Papercakes! I fell in love with the Oh Happy Life collection by Amy Tangerine and will mostly be using those products with my staple Tombow Adhesives.

Today I created a two-page scrapbook layout, but it is a mini layout of sorts. Each page measures 5.5 by 8.5 inches. This smaller size makes it easier to design your spread. I fell in love with this laser cut paper by Amy Tangerine and knew that I had to use it! To bring out the white design, I layered it on top of a watercolor paper with soft blended colors. I then used Tombow’s Foam Tape to raise the flowers and add dimension to my layout.
For my journaling, I added my words directly onto the photo itself with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker. This pen writes nicely on glossy photo paper and dries quickly. It’s a great black pen for any scrapbooker.
I also added a few rubber embellishments using the Tombow MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue to adhere everything down. This glue dries clear and has been a favorite of scrapbookers for years now!
And here is a look at how my layout turned out. I purposely created a contrast of black and white on one side and bright happy colors on the other. Scrapbooking can be as artsy as you want it to be and I love to make my layouts colorful but with something for the eye to focus on. Like here I added a doodled picture frame around my photo and that defines that area much better. Let me know in the comments below what you would do with this laser cut paper design? I can’t wait to hear!
I hope you get scrapbooking too this week! Happy Crafting!
