Hola Amigas! At the end of this session, we share all the details of our Creative Memories Incentive Trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

Gather those partial strips and a statement punch to create a high impact – low work layout. Because the multiple papers offer all the design, very little technique is required to pull this layout together. Choose a statement punch to provide an embellishment focus along one edge. The Postage Stamp Border Punch offers some ‘spots’ for placing small embellishments, but this layout can be adapted to use with any style of punch. This is a great opportunity to use one of your larger designs such as the Iron Gate Border Punch also shown.

Adding Embellishment

One of the fun parts about scrapbooking is the embellishing, but it can also be a mind block for some. To create a cluster, choose three or more pieces to layer. Don’t worry about punching anything in the ‘appropriate’ color (i.e. leaves are green). Use scraps of paper from your collection to punch. Layer the icons with stickers or embellishments. Don’t embellish every open space. Choose 2-3 areas to add some enhancement, ideally creating a triangle of eye movement around the page.
