Hello  friends!

Hope you are ready to start a new month!   It seems like this year is flying by, and now we are ready to put the winter gear away, and start to see how Spring starts to pop around us.

Today, I want to bring you a new layout that is fun, and colorful, but also showcases dimension without adding undesired bulk to the page.


The new Crate Paper’s Good Vibes collection is filled with vibrancy,  color, and texture, so I wanted to take advantage of these to create a page that also creates the illusion of dimension without adding the bulk to the page.   The following video will show you a few tricks when combining chipboard pieces so that they don’t add undesired bulk to the page:



As you just saw in the video,   the key to creating this page is to trim the chipboard at so that they create the illusion of an intersection while adding dimension to the page.




Once the chipboard frames were trimmed, the layout came together in a small amount of time.    A bit of mixed media just peeking behind the frames is enough to bring more color and interest to the page.



The beautiful embellishments and fun phrases were perfect to complete this page!   The intersected frames not only create the background but also create dimension to the page with just a few tricks.

As always do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions on the page.  Remember to stop by the Scrapbook Nerd online store to pick all the materials used on this page, and lots of new collections being added daily!

Take care!
