Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Susie here today sharing a Christmas layout I created using two of the wonderful laser cut overlays available from Want2Scrap!



I absolutely love to decorate for Christmas and one of the first things that came out of the boxes this past year was our collection of nutcrackers! I realized I needed to scrapbook them and of course I found the perfect starting point with Want2Scrap overlays.  This is how the overlays looked when I started:

Let me tell you that the red paper is the same on each overlay although the photography makes them look like different colors.  Sorry about that!  :)  You can see that each of the overlays come with  a white paper background that provides a photo mat inside of each of the openings - such a nice detail!


Don't feel like you need to fill each opening with a picture - although I did do that for the photo on the right!  I use the openings to group pictures and related embellishments and I like to include a lot of pictures on my layouts! I used patterned paper to create a background for my mini collages in two of the openings.  I chose the Holiday Cheer Collection from Photo Play Paper because it had a nutcracker theme!

This overlay actually has a laser cut Santa's hat and sparkles which would make it perfect for "Visit with Santa" pictures.  My theme for this page was different so I created an embellishment cluster to cover up that area.

The built in laser cut title is my favorite part of any overlay because it just makes my life easier!  The paper pack I was working with had a color pallette that included both white and tan.  I chose one of the papers with a tan pattern and used it to back most of the title area. I left the area behind the word "Christmas" white so that it would really stand out and  I added a dimensional wooden exclamation point!


Next I used the "Christmas Tree Second Page" overlay. I want to point out that you can flip this page around and orient it any way you want to suit your pictures and embellishments.  I just love having options!

Here is a look at the finished page.  I love treating each opening like a mini scrapbook page!


So time to get out those Christmas pictures and get them into your scrapbook!  Be sure to check out the Want2Scrap Store for our full selection of 12x12 and 6x6 overlays!

Game On! with Pokemon Go!

Pokemon Go is the latest gaming craze and of course Want2Scrap has the perfect overlay to scrapbook those memories: Game On!
Click on any picture to see a larger image.

My favorite part of any Want2Scrap overlay is the title area.  I love the font on this one and didn't feel as though it needed a whole lot of dressing up. The little Pikachu I used to embellish the title area came off of a lanyard I found at WalMart!


This little guy was actually cut out of the lanyard packaging and adhered with foam pop dots.


But what kind of pictures do you use on a layout about a cell phone game?  Screen shots of course!  There are standard graphics and phrases that any Pokemon Trainer sees every day:  The Pokemon broke free?  You walked how far?  You finally have enough candy to evolve that Pokemon!  Congratulations - you levelled up!!

There are real world photo ops, too!  How about this one of my daughter battling into a gym - in the rain!

 And of course you can always use the ap take pictures of Pokemon in the real world!


This overlay is very versatile and can be used for pretty much any kind of gaming.  Here is a page where I used the same overlay for one of my great nephews playing with a remote control car.  I spent a little more time altering the title with Want2Scrap Shiny Chrome Drops!  You can find the details for this layout HERE.

Want2Scrap has a wide selection of overlays that make great starting points for layouts.  Be sure to check out both sizes: 12x12 and 6x6.  Happy scrapping!

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

I Heart Dogs Card!

Susie here today with a CAS (Clean And Simple) card I created for a dog lover - or maybe a new dog owner!

I started by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment in black ink.  Then I added a wash of blue to create a bit of a background.

I love Want2Scrap chipboard!  I often use it just bare naked because I love that look, but there are so many ways to dress it up!  Today I decided to use embossing powder.  I chose one of the elements from the card sized Houses by Nina Brackett pack.

I wanted to make the house 2-toned, so I masked off the roof part with a piece of paper and inked the bottom half.  I added embossing powder and applied heat to set.

Then I reversed it and masked off the bottom and embossed the roof using a different color.  Such a cute little house, right?

But not cute enough!  I stamped a tiny little sentiment on the roof and heat embossed it.  It turned out really cool as it kind of melted into the previous heat embossing but still kept a little dimension.  Next I dug a tiny little wooden dog chippie out of my stash and heat embossed him in black.

I adhered them to the front of the card and then decided to snazz up the roof line with a bit of bling from the Sleek Strip Rhinestones in black...

...and added a few bits of washi tape - voila!

Be sure to stop by Want2Scrap and check out the store for all the new designs of chipboard that we have added!

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
