Meet scrapbook artist Paige Evans and start playing with your patterned papers by learning how to artfully tear and layer strips for a richly textured, balanced page. Add photos and use embellishments to frame your loved ones.
An electronic cutting machine such as the Silhouette Cameo is great for creating intricate backgrounds. Paige shows several ways to pair scraps from your favorite patterned papers with cutouts in your design. Try the same techniques with photos!
Set your scrapbook pages apart with spectacular stitchwork. Create a fun, textured background with folded, patterned circles that you attach to your page using a sewing machine. You can also stitch by hand, using embroidery floss to outline shapes and letters. Paige shows you how!
Create your own backgrounds using a variety of cutting techniques paired with color themes. Layer punched hearts for an ombré effect or go for a monochromatic look using papers cut with a die cutter. Even a paper trimmer can help you achieve a striking rainbow sunburst. Get creative with your stash!
Learn even more ways to create shapes and motifs using intricate die cuts or hand-trimmed shapes. Paige shows how to create a cloud of embellished butterflies and a playful alphabet, then shares some quilt-inspired designs, including sewn-on chevrons.
Paper strips cut by hand or with a trimmer are easy to make - and fun to use! Try Paige's innovative techniques, such as weaving strips to create a background, or rolling them to create a frame for your photos. Paige shows you a variety of fun layouts you can try!
Make your own patterned papers using watercolors. Page explains how you can cut out a design with a cutting machine, paper punch or by hand. Create a tone-on-tone background with spray mist and a doily or try artfully splattering your layout for added interest. Let your imagination play!
