Coffee and a Layout

Hello crafty friends,

Today’s post is a bit delayed but I am sharing a layout with you. One of my 2020 crafty goals is to make and share more scrapbooking layouts.

Here I use a giant doily, purchased at the dollar store to accent the photo. I used a few clusters to help the eye move around the page and I used my favorite colors, salmon pink and teal as my main colors. Some of my clusters are made using ephemera from the Whimsical collection by Paige Evans,Pink Paisley brand. I also used ephemera by Vicki Boutin and papers from older paper pads.

Below are some more photos.

There is also a process video available on my YT channel found here.

Easy Mini Flip Album

Hello all!

Hope you are having a blessed and happy New Year.

Here I share ideas for making a quick and SUPER easy mini flip album.

I basically took large scraps, 12×12″ sheets and 6×6″ papers and trimmed them down to 3 1/2′ x 5″. To keep the pages together, I punched a hole at the top left corner of each page.

Once the pages are trimmed and holes punched, the album comes together very easily with photos and embellishments.

For one of the albums I also added a ribbon and dangle charm to my plastic ring used to hold my pages together.

Below are photos of the process and completed albums.

Scrappy Recycled Cards: USE YOUR SCRAPS

Hi Crafty friends,

Here is a quick share. My favorite types of cards to create are patterned paper scrappy cards. I love the layered and textured look of scrap cards and the fact that I can use up a lot of the scraps that would otherwise be thrown away.

Below I am sharing a few Christmas Scrappy cards that also incorporate recycled Christmas cards. For a full break down on what how I put these together, please see the YouTube video here.

I enjoyed making these so much! I hope to have one more Christmas related project to share before moving on soon. I also want to have a chat video where I answer the most common questions I receive, plus some new ones. If you have any questions please include them in the comments section below or comment on the YouTube video. You can also shoot your questions via my IG @citygalpapeterie

As always, THANK YOU all for visiting and checking out my project share! I hope it was helpful and gave you some ideas.

Until next time,

XoXo
