Intertwining and Designing: Geometric Scrapbook Layout

Simplicity never goes out of style, but sometimes we crave extra interest and intrigue… which can be accomplished through Recipe Templates! Recipe Templates are scrapbooking stencils that serve as a guide to trace, cut and piece together a plethora of pretty projects in a snap. Today’s blog features the latest Quilted Knot Recipe Template, making way for an intricate, intertwining and clean line design. And when you pair it with some vibrant papers (like the Totally Tonal papers!), you’re in for eye-catching and professional-looking statements. (And definitely some “Oh my gosh, how did you do that?!” exclamations from people who flip through your albums!) See for yourself with blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu’s geometric scrapbook layout idea!

Sketch Round-Up Jan. 10-23

Sketches are two-fold winning wonders… how so? Well, for one, you can develop stunning projects without having to go to the trouble of designing a page completely from scratch — the blueprints are right there for you to work off of! On the flip side, sketches also allow you the freedom to include whatever tickles your scrapbooking fancy and means most to you — little knick-knacks and memorabilia, handwritten stories, special photos and embellishments, stickers and borders that add a punch of personal pizzazz and signature style. Whichever side to sketches you lean toward (or maybe a combo of the two!), they’re a surefire way to get the creativity flowing! Let’s see what you put together with these innovative ideas below.
