Scrapbook Layout using a Mood Board

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop Title - March 2021

Welcome to the Scrapbook Global Blog Hop

The theme this month is a Mood Board

This month’s Scrapbook layout Mood Board theme has been decided by Sharon Dalton. I cannot remember every using a Mood Board to design a scrapbook layout so this was an great opportunity to have a go.

First I started by getting the card stock and ink pads out for the colours, Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray, Highland Heather, Roccoco Rose and Pear Pizzazz. I was tempted to use the Hydrangea Haven Suite but decided against it and try something else.

I decided to do a double layout so that I could finish scrapbooking my only baby photos. My parents were given a colour photo film roll as a present. They decided to take some photos of me when I was about 6 months old.

I started by mounting the photos onto a Pear Pizzazz mat layer and then a Misty Moonlight mat layer. As I did not want the photos to be regimented on the page so I made each mat layer off centre with the photos being straight on the page. I decided that I did not want to have a separate journalling mat layer so joined it to the landscape photos. I have never done this before and love how it looks.

Then came the hard part. How to link in the other colours in the mood board. I looked at the Hydrangea DSP but I was not sure if they went with my photos. So I decided to go for my favourite Beautiful Friendship stamp set.

I started off by stamping the large flower image onto Basic White 12×12 card stock in Highland Heather ink. I then stamped the smaller flower image in Roccoco Rose ink and then Seaside Spray ink. It still looked not quite finished so I used Pear Pizzazz to stamp the leaves.

I started with opposite corners being stamped but I still had a lot of white space. So I decided to stamp the other two corners and stamp the larger leaf image in the middle of each side.

I stamped the second page the same way as the first page but left a space at the bottom right hand corner to add the title.

It took me a while to decide on a title but as having a photo taken was not an everyday event people often found it hard to pose for photos so I decided on the title ‘Smile You’re on Camera’. I die cut the letters out of scraps of all the colours and the Playful Alphabet dies. I then laid them onto the page a stuck them down.

Finally to finish the layout off I stamped a couple of flower images in opposite corners of the journalling mat. Now all I need to do it catch up with my mum (once lockdown is over) and find out more about the photos and do the journalling.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my double page layout as much as I did making it. Why not have a go at doing a mood board layout yourself.

Thank you for visiting my website today, remember to keep stampin n crafting.
