These Artistic Scrapbook Layouts Will Totally “Draw” You In

With the Dot Pens and Recipe Templates, your very own hand-drawn pen lines can add extra pops of pizazz, shades, definition and texture to bring a new personal touch to your pages! Have you created stunning projects with Dot Pens or Recipe Templates? You’ll definitely want to after checking out these artistic scrapbook layouts!

To create these layouts you’ll need:

Watch how easy it is to create this cool effect with the Hello, Autumn Journal Template and Dot Pens.

Adorning the corners of this layout with a drawn decorative added a whimsical touch to this Christmas layout featuring the Slice of Life Recipe Template.

Step 1: Choose a sheet of red patterned paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a sheet of White Solid Cardstock to measure 11″ x 11″. Lay the Hello, Autumn Journal Template with the flourish corner design. Scribble the Hunter Dot Pen on a piece of plastic or waxed paper (anything non-porous) and spritz lightly with water. Dab up with a sponge and lightly tap the flourish to fill in the design, making sure the sponge isn’t too wet. Allow to dry for a moment, then trace over the design with the fine tip of the Hunter Dot Pen. Repeat with the other three corners. Adhere the piece to the base.

Step 3: Use the Slices of Life Recipe Template to create the rest of the layout as shown. The outside of the Jumbo Custom Cutting System Pattern and the Red Blade make quick work of the medium green paper shape. Trace the inner circle rings on the template onto Santa hats paper and cut out with scissors. Also trace the patterns onto photos (and ruled paper) using a pencil and cut with scissors. The inside circles can be cut with the medium Circle Pattern and the Red Blade (photo) and large Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade (mat). Adhere all pieces using the template as a guide.

Step 4: Embellish and journal as desired.

An artsy vine border and cut-out stenciled leaves was just what this summer layout needed to make it pop.

Step 1: Use a piece of green leaf patterned paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a sheet of White Solid Cardstock to measure 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″. Lay the Hello, Autumn Journal Template with the continuous vine design along the top edge. Scribble the Hunter Dot Pen on a piece of plastic or waxed paper (anything non-porous) and spritz lightly with water. Dab up with a sponge and lightly tap to fill in the design, making sure the sponge isn’t too wet. Allow to dry for a moment, then trace over the design with the fine tip of the Hunter Dot Pen. Repeat with the bottom edge. Adhere the piece to the base.

Step 3: Cut a piece of multi-hued paper to measure 10″ x 9″ and mount it on the middle of the layout. Use a ruler and Hunter Dot Pen to draw around the edges.

Step 4: Crop one photo to measure 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and mat with a variety mat. Crop two photos to measure 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and mat with 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ pieces of beige paper. Mount all on the layout as shown.

Step 5: Trace leaves and branches with Hunter Dot Pen onto various paper scraps. Cut out, making sure to cut around the markings. Adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 6: Add stickers and additional dots as desired.

Using the Hello, Autumn Journal Template and Dot Pens, I made my own paper design and journal boxes to dress up this wedding layout.

Step 1: Lay the Hello, Autumn Journal Template over a sheet of white lined paper and trace a foliage design with the fine tip of the Chocolate Dot Pen. Move the template and continue tracing the design to create an all-over design on the paper. This is the base for your layout.

Step 2: Punch a border with the Baroque Frame Border Punch. Trim to measure 1-1/2″ x 12″ and adhere to the layout. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade, cut a 1″ x 12″ strip of terra cotta patterned paper and adhere over the edge of the baroque border. Cut a 3-1/2″ x 12″ strip of navy patterned paper and adhere next to the terra cotta piece. Top with a border sticker.

Step 3: Mat two 5-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ photos with 6″ x 4″ pieces of White Solid Cardstock. Mat again with two 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ variety mats. Mount on the layout.

Step 4: Trace the journal box design from the template onto White Solid Cardstock and a variety mat using the fine tip of the Chocolate Dot Pen. Trim out, making sure to cut around the markings. Adhere to the layout, along with the “All of me…” sticker and gemstones.

Step 5: Journal as desired.
