I had never scrapbooked anything remotely related to ice skating so I wasn't sure what kind of scrapbook layout to make. I finally decided to just keep it simple and to do the layout in a color scheme that matched my photos. Hence, I went with light purple, dark purple and bright blue.
My background is a sheet of light purple textured cardstock. I cropped down 3 photos into smaller sized rectangles and matted them onto bright blue cardstock using a photo strip format, matted again onto dark purple cardstock. I ran this strip down the right side of my page.
I had a cardstock fry box which I covered in scrapbooking paper to make a photo & tag pocket. I matted another photo from the ice skating show onto the front of the tag. On the back side of the tag I did my journaling. I punched a hole at the top of the tag and added two pieces of fiber for accent. I then slipped into into my pocket (the fry box) and mounted it onto my page.
The title of my page is "Stars on Ice" which I spelled out using self-adhesive alphabet stickers in a dark navy blue color. I decorated the fry box/pocket with some flower shaped rhinestones in my color scheme and attached them with tiny foam dots. I added 4 additional ones underneath the photo strip. Between the pocket and the photo strip I used 4 epoxy stickers to label the year of 2013.
To finish up the layout I had some tie-dye eyelash fibers in my color scheme that I wanted to use up. I cut four pieces measuring 11 3/4" each and ran them around the outside edges of my layout. I used dark blue staples in each corner to help fasten them down and tiny glue dots in the center to keep them extra secured.
Overall, I am pretty pleased with this layout. I didn't have any ice skating theme'd embellishments on-hand so I just kept it pretty clean & simple. I was able to squeeze on all of the photos that I had taken plus, it only took me an hour to make and I kept my costs down. Yay! Super fun scrapbook layout! Next week I will be sharing some vacation layouts next!
