Today I am sharing how to stamp and doodle on plain cardstock to create a fun Easter scrapbook page.

 Easter Scrapbook Page JPriest 

The background of this entire scrapbook page is stamped, doodled or embossed! I use only 3 sheets of solid cardstock to make this fun, festive, and artsy Easter themed layout. Here's how to make it:

The idea behind this layout is to use supplies that would typically be used for card making to make scrapbooking layouts. One of the things I am a big supporter of is the idea that any tool in your craft space, be it a stamp, marker, embossing folder or what not, should have more than one use. It's easy to find multiples uses for adhesive but when we start thinking about markers on a scrapbook page it gets a little risky. Here are my secrets for “making it work”:

  • Test out inks and markers on the back of the paper to see how they'll look before you use them on the front of the page.
  • Keep working if you make a mistake. Sometimes, it turns into something great! On this layout, the darker yellow on the embossed panels felt too dark when I first put it on but it grew on me and blended as I kept working.
  • If you absolutely cannot live with the result, throw it away. Paper is maybe $1 a sheet so don't sweat it if you don't love it – it's small stuff in the grand scheme of things.
  • Dig in your drawers for things you have not used in “forever”. I found these butterfly punches that I have not used in 2 years sitting in the bottom of a cabinet and decided to dust them off and give them a whirl.

 To make this Easter scrapbook layout, you'll need the following supplies:

Tools:

Dryer sheets? Yes, really! Watch the video above to see how I run the embossing folder through the Big Shot with a dryer sheet in it first. This helps release the paper from the folder better when embossing.
