Excel in Exclusivity With These Scrapbook Spread Ideas

Have you heard about the new and exclusive Heart & Soul, Timeless and Crafter Paper Packs? We sure hope so because for a limited time, you can get your hands on these never-before-seen paper packs for FREE (yes, FREE!) when you make qualifying purchases of Last Chance products on the website. Blog contributor Krislyn Mattei got her hands on these three paper packs early, and she was able to put together some inspiring (and may we say, stunning!) scrapbook spreads that will make your albums stand out — take a look below!

I absolutely couldn’t decide which of these three paper packs I love most, so I created a layout with each of them! I based them all on the same layout design, but rotated the elements a bit on one of them.

After I had the pieces in place, I had fun scrounging through my embellishments for a little something extra — the Family Memories Laser Cut Borders coordinate with all three paper packs, the Natural Disposition Laser Cut Embellishments have perfect title options for any theme and the All My Love Foiled Flower Embellishments and Daydreamer Embellishments offer just the finishing touches the layouts need.

To create these layouts you’ll need:

Step 1: Use two sheets of cardstock for the base of each two-page layout.

Step 2: Crop photos and mats. My photos are (2) 5-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ matted with 6″ x 4″ cardstock; (2) 3-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ photos matted with 4″ x 6″ designer paper; (2-4) 2-3/4″ square photos matted with (2-4) 3″ squares of designer paper. Adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 3: Using the outside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with designer paper. Cut in half. Adhere one half to each side of the layout, using the sketch as a guide. Cut a Family Memories Laser Cut Border in half or less and adhere next to the half circle.

Step 4: Cut a variety of designer papers into 4″ long strips of varying widths (mine are 1/2″-1-3/4″ wide). Adhere them to each side of the layout, using the sketch as a guide.

Step 5: Add embellishments and journal as desired.

  1. These paper packs are lovely. And the sketch is perfect for using up bits and pieces of a collection; I’ll be using it over and over. Thank you so much for this blog–it’s great.

  2. All of these layouts are stunning! Paper packs help my mind stay focused. I have a brain that can go every which way as I scrap. Then I don’t end up with anything balanced or attractive. Thanks for your ideas Krislyn!
