Scrapbooking | Abstract and Floral Mommy & Me Scrapbook Layout Design

This scrapbook layout is so much prettier in person and my camera did a horrible job at trying to capture how pretty this layout really is. It was done in the 12x12 scrapbooking format and the little wee one in the photo picked the papers that she wanted me to use...since I am the one making her a scrapbook of her life. I wasn't too sure how pale green and dark purple would look together but I think it actually looks nice.

We took an all-over floral print piece of paper and used that as our background. We then ripped a sheet of dark purple textured cardstock paper and glued two sections of that onto the printed paper to get our layout base.

We framed the 4x6 photo with a pre-purchased cardstock frame and then matted that on dark purple and pale green, trimmed the mats so that only an 1/8" border remained around them. We placed this at the top of the page but off-center and more onto the left-side of the page. We matted a preprinted journaling block that talks about a mother's love onto dark purple cardstock and trimmed it so that only an 1/8" border remained and put that under the photo. We then took a clear adhesive word sticker that says YOU ARE A PART OF ME and put it on pale green paper and matted it with dark purple cardstock...again...trimming it so that only an 1/8" border remained. We then took 3 self-adhesive foam dots and mounted it onto the journaling block, over-lapping the block on the right side.

To finish up the layout we took a punch-out word that says FOREVER and placed that onto the bottom right of the page. We took a clear adhesive word sticker that says SPECIAL and matted that on pale green and dark purple papers and used a foam dot on the back to stick it on the page (to the right) of the top photo.
