Scrapbook Nerd Academy

Welcome to the first edition of Scrapbook Nerd Academy,

We hope you enjoy this new series here on the Nerd blog. Every Tuesday we will be post a tutorial/how to process to help grow your crafting skills. It’s a little easier to learn when you see how something is made don’t you think? I know I sure do.
It’s easy once you know how.

Tutorial #1 – Sarah’s adding texture with corrugate

I love that you can add texture in so many different ways on a layout. I’m going to show you a bit of my process for creating texture and how to go about it Smile
I love the corrugated 12×12 sheets by Fancy Pants and I knew I wanted to use some of that on my layout to add some texture, so I started by choosing a place on my layout that I wanted to put it, then I used my Cameo to cut some chevron arrows into my layout pointing toward where I knew I wanted my picture to go.

Once it was cut, I flipped it over, and added some patterned paper to a couple of the arrows, then added a square of the corrugated sheet over the back to cover the remaining holes.

Once that was finished, I gathered the rest of the supplies I was going to use and started to piece together a frame, a fussy cut flower, some more fabulous Fancy Pants paper and I actually cut the pictures out of the back of the packaging for the frames too because I liked those tiny frames and the cardboard gives a whole different texture too! Once I get my layers how I like them, I use my tiny attacher and just staple them together where I know it will be covered, that way I don’t have to worry about gluing the individual pieces together and risk wrecking the layering Wink

Once everything was glued down, I distressed the edges by simply folding them and bending them. That is a super easy way to add some texture to your layouts!
