Exploring Scrapbook Layout Ideas

Exploring Scrapbook layout ideas with a digikit called 

Thinking of different ways it can be used to create a new layout.

To make the altered background I used ribbon strips and papers together.
Layering the ribbons vertically and blending patterned paper over the top.
Then adding stitched detail over this.
To decorate the elements and images were arranged.
I recoloured the ribbon to black/white.
Finally one paper on the top layer coloured light blue and blended.

Ideas for Fathers Day (Cards, Crafts, Scrapbooking)

Fathers Day in the UK will be on Sunday June 19th...

Here is some Inspiration using a few digikits from my store, with some added word art and effects. 
*These could work equally well for*
Scrapbooking by adding journaling, quotes etc as well as Wall Art or Cardmaking.

The first layout is strong and bold with deep blue tones, white and grey. This was achieved using a kit called Projection and recolouring some of the paper and elements. 
I also used a great font to make some word art (invite engraved sf) adding a line edge in white to it.

Layout two has gentle tones and was created using two kits Incognito and Textured love.
I placed staples behind the frame and added a border to one edge for interest. 
The font for the word art was (folio xbd bt). I then used some of the material from the kit and joined it to the word art to theme it in with the papers in the layout.

Hope you enjoyed the ideas, more coming soon.
