Welcome to the Kerri Bradford Studio and Bella Blvd team up week! It's been awhile but I've got a new scrapbook layout to share with you all. I was afraid I would be completely out of practice on how to combine photos, paper, and embellishments to tell a story but this page came together relatively quickly!
One of my favorite ways to showcase older, less-than-perfect photos is to frame them up and add clusters of simple embellishments to showcase the story. The filmstrips from the Click Kit are some of my all-time favorite shapes and make creating an eye-catching layout both quick and easy! Don’t feel like you have to include photos in all the openings. I filled the empty spaces with Christmas-themed patterned papers and embellished those frames for a fun and festive holiday layout!
I die cut three film strips from the Click Kit, two with four openings and one with five opening.I die cut the film strips from both white cardstock and black cardstock and adhered the white film strip slightly offset over the black film strip for a shadowed look. I trimmed down my photos to fit behind some of the openings. For the openings where there isn't a photo, I die cut the rounded square from red/white or black/white Bella Blvd patterned papers.
The title was created by combining the word "click" from the Click Kit die cut from patterned paper and black cardstock and "Christmas" from the Seasonably Said Kit die cut from black cardstock. I adhered both in between the second and third film strips on the layout. I finished the title with a stamped phrase from the Twinkle Stamp Set, stamped with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink.
I added a combination of stickers, buttons and a stamped tag to the patterned paper opening on the layout. I die cut the tag from the Attach It Kit and stamped a greeting from the Twinkle Stamp Set on the tag using SSS Green Apple Ink and Lawn Fawn Lobster Ink.
I printed the journaling on a white strip of cardstock, rounded the two visible corners with the 1/8" corner rounder and tucked the strip under the left side of the third film strip.
