Friendship Is A Sheltering Tree

Whether you are new to scrapbooking or you’ve been scrapbooking for years, you are going to love this adorable layout designed by Arlene. Arlene hosts her own blog Butterfly Kisses and is also one of the very talented members of the Graphic 45 design team.

Friendship Is A Sheltering Tree

Lots of layering and fun embellishments are what make this adorable layout so amazing. I highly recommend stopping by Arlene’s blog and check out her tutorial about putting this layout together. Arlene really is the queen of layering and you are sure to pick up a few tips. One tip that I would like to point out is how she varies the height of the layers using lots of pop dots and pop squares. The dimension that this brings to the layout really adds a wealth of visual interest and takes the project up to the next level.

Perfect Layers

My hope for you is to be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to be open to new ideas and techniques, and most importantly, have fun with your art. Remember, if it makes you smile then it works.

Thanks for the visit. I’m looking forward to seeing you back soon – happy crafting!
