Scrapbooking | Wild Thing 12x12 Zoo Scrapbook Layout Idea

If you love inexpensive and quick 12x12 scrapbook layout ideas then I think you will appreciate this one because it took me less than 40 minutes to make because I used a pre-made photo frame, self-adhesive stickers, cardstock and a zoo theme'd cardstock tag.

I first started out with a sheet of 12x12 leopard print scrapbooking paper which I used for my background. I purchased a "Wild Thing" cardstock frame for .50 cents to frame my 4x6" photo of my hubby standing with black bear. I then matted that with some solid black cardstock, trimmed it so that an 1/8" border remained. I used 2-sided tape and stuck it onto my layout.

I purchased a pack of self-adhesive zoo animal stickers on clearance for $1.00 and used the bear and the tiger stickers from the pack and mounted each one onto white cardstock. I trimmed them down into block shapes, used black ink to ink around the edges and then matted them onto dark olive green and solid black cardstock, leaving an 1/8" edge around each one. To add some dimension to my page I used self-adhesive foam dots to apply them to my page. (see photo for placement).

I cropped down a photo I had of the CAPE MAY ZOO sign and matted that onto block cardstock, trimmed it so that only an 1/8" edge remained and stuck that under the photo of hubby and made sure it over-lapped the photo frame.

To finish up I took a zoo themed tag that says "Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!" from a Tagalongs (tm) pack and added some fiber through the top of the tag and placed it onto my page. I then dated my layout in the bottom right corner. I did my journaling on the matching page to this one which you can find in the scrapbooking section here on my blog.
