The following scrapbooking layout was done in the traditional 12" by 12" format. I don't care for digital scrapbook pages, so this one is totally made with paper.
My background is a sheet of 12" by 12" printed scrapbooking paper. The main color is a beige and it has a printed floral border running down the left side. Since Hershey's chocolate is in a brown color, I wanted to use mostly neutral shades on my page.
I had a piece of printed chocolate brown & floral pattern pattern and cut a strip to measure the width of my photo block by 3/4" in height. I then used my "fringe edge" scissors and cut a fringe along the one long edge. I used my glue dots runner to attach the fringe strip of paper to the bottom edge of the photo block and then attached the entire thing to the background paper.
This page took me about 45 minutes to make...most of that time spent with cutting out my letters using the Cricut and then running them through my Xryon. Total cost (for all of you frugal scrapbookers was about $2.50 for the page. Yay!
