Personalized Background

Have you seen Scraptastic Club's Just Beachy kit? If you are like me who loves bright and bold colors, this kit is perfect for you. It might seem a bit intimidating at first but with the perfect combination of patterned papers, cardstock, embellishments and alphas, the kit is very easy to work with. It is not limited to summer photos, you can use everyday photos as well

How fun is this!!! This too is going to be fun to play with! I love the primary color palette. What a great mix of American Crafts, My Mind's Eye, Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon, Elle's Studio, and don't forget about those adorable transportation wood veneers by Studio Calico. Jessica also included exclusive tags in this kit as well. It is a great summer kit to scrap the last of those summer memories!

I have created a few layouts from this kit. The first one I am sharing with everyone right now is a layout where I personalized my own background. I have used 3 colors of mists, some stamps, transparencies, liquid pearls and some washi tape.

I have also made my own washi tape using some strips of patterned paper that came with the kit. I learned this technique from Danielle Flander's blog here. I am loving this technique so much because it is easy to make and I can save a few dollars as well.

Give this technique a try and I am sure you will get addicted to it as well. You can maximize your stash and create a more personalized page. Thanks for dropping by!
