Meet your instructor, designer Kelly Purkey, and dive right into creating a scrapbook layout. Throughout the class, Kelly shares personal layouts she has designed for her own scrapbook, and shows how she has used design principles that you can apply to similar layouts of your own. In this first lesson, learn about the rule of thirds, stamping and fussy cutting as you explore Kelly's "Tasty & Alder" page.
Misted letter stencils and a visual triangle are key components of the "You Are My Sunshine" page. Follow along with Kelly as she shows how to align your letters easily, add raised elements and crop photos to embellish this cheerful layout.
A visit to a flea market provides lots of fun photos to create a collage of colors, texture and images. See how Kelly chooses colors and patterns that complement her photographs, then auditions them on the page to achieve an arrangement that's pleasing to the eye.
Four friends are the focus of this simply titled page. Learn how to mist a larger stencil inside a cardboard box to protect your workspace (and clothes!), then use a clustered layout to showcase a single photo.
Die-cut papers are ideal for adding dimension to your scrapbook pages. See how to audition and attach multiple layers of paper behind and around a fun photo, then use fussy-cut illustrations (Kelly uses adorable foxes) to embellish it.
Use a larger photo as the anchor for multiple smaller photos that branch off from it. Use complementary colored and patterned papers to tie them all together. Kelly demonstrates with a quartet of black-and-white snapshots and also shows how to troubleshoot your layout so it looks cohesive.
A visit to The High Line park in New York City is the theme of this dramatic page. Learn how to combine both vertical and horizontal photos in a pleasing way, and choose a layout and embellishments that echo the linear theme. You'll use washi tape and add journaling to complete the look.
