Hello, all my crafty friends. Welcome back to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog for another dose of creative planning fun! Grab a cup of tea, coffee, or lemonade and take a look at what I have to share with you today. I hope you will be inspired by these projects and be able to take some time this beautiful day to create some wonderful projects.
Today I’ll be sharing a layout created using the Cocoa Vanilla Happiness collection; it’s perfect for your summer photos. Missy truly has a gift for putting together perfect scrapbook layouts, and this darling one is no exception. I love all of this inky background, along with the artsy look and the way she customizes the background to coordinate with the papers and embellishments. Missy created such a perfect background for the darling photos she used on her layout.
There is so much more than first meets the eye on this beautiful layout. I highly recommend stopping by the Little Nugget Creations blog so you can follow along as Missy shares her step-by-step video on how the layout was created. You will definitely pick up some new tips and techniques to use on your next page. Missy has always been a great inspiration to me and I am sure she will be to you as well! Happy scrapping, my friends!
