Artbooking Made Easy: Togetherness

If you love documenting your favorite family together time, then you’re going to love today’s episode of Artbooking Made Easy. We’re going to be looking at the together layout keys on pages 60 and 61 of the Artbooking booklet. Contact ME your Independent Consultant for more information!
So whether you’re scrapbooking memories with your sweetheart, your friends, or your family, these together layout keys are perfect!
I love this overlay! As Mimi pointed out, it’s been backed with papers from several different paper packets, but they all work together so well that you wouldn’t even guess they weren’t from the same packet! This overlay is nice because you can leave the cutouts backed simply with paper, photos, stamps, or embellishments.
Don’t you love this beautiful stamp? It’s nice with the two-colored effect too, created by simply stamping in two different inks and then cutting out the frame from one and paper piecing it atop the sentiment.
Again, this adorable overlay is perfect to be sized down and used for a card! I also love how the “I Adore You” sentiment was dovetailed and then popped up with a double layer of 3-D foam tape to give it a realistic ribbon-like look.
Notice how the artist had used a frame on top of the photo, without trimming off the edges. I love how the colors work together to frame the photo but it adds a certain amount of interest to keep the edges of the photo exposed.
Mimi showed us in the video how to back the border with colorful scraps, but you could also do the same thing with the “together” banner or other cutouts from these keys, as many of them have decorative edges.
These two heart pennants add such a nice touch to this page. You can use some re-inker and a spray pen to add some light sprinkles of color, as you can see here on the White Daisy cardstock that’s backing the pennants. I also love the machine stitching on top! That adds a fun and unexpected detail.
