An Easy Way To Scrapbook with 6×8 Pattern Paper
diving into the Care Free Collection 6×8 Paper Pad
Are you a fan of 12×12 pattern papers? Do you prefer 6×8 sized scrapbook paper pads? Do you collect both?
Today’s post I am going to dive back into my Care Free Collection, as found at JoAnn Stores. Using the 6×8 Paper Pad, I am going to use just one of the pattern papers to create a background to add to my son’s current Storyline Chapters Album.
As seen above, I have pulled one of the pattern papers from the Care Free 6×8 Paper Pad. It’s seen here sitting on a Storyline Chapters Insert. The Insert pages measure at 7.5 x 9 inches. Of course, that makes the 6×8 paper a smidge too small. That in and of itself is no big deal. I just wanted to go a bit different with this particular 6×8 paper and ‘cut it up’.
I took to cutting up all the ‘tags’ if you will from this page. Each square or journal spot or tag or fill-in was cut apart. Then, using the original format of the page as a guide (I took a photo first), I ‘reassembled’ the page.
After placing the ‘cut aways’ back on the page, I then rearranged the photo with the ‘cut-aways’ and even added in some Care Free Washi Tape so as to create even spacing around all the elements on the page.
I also embellished my now cut away pieces on the page. I added in some details to the ‘who what where when’ tag. Clustered embellishments found a home on the ‘remembering’ space. A Definition Sticker is layered over a little banner. The Let’ Go tag has a bow on it and is also ‘popped’ up from the page.
Not only did I enjoy the process of cutting paper and arranging paper + photo then embellishing the ‘cut-aways’, I also am very happy how it all turned out. It’s just one way to use Care Free 6×8 Pattern Paper on a scrapbook page.
