Scrapbook DIY Option 2:
A fun and creative option for scrapbook DIY embellishing is to use die cuts and layer them together to create mini areas of interest on your project. Clustering is also a great option to use up tiny scraps you have left over from larger projects.
Scrapbook DIY Photo Border Cluster
In the above example I use die cuts from the Kaisercraft Madame Boutique collection to create a border for a photo. In addition to the die cuts I added two resin brad roses and a teeny hessian flower.
The vertical die cut is edged with an alcohol marker in aqua.
Scrapbook DIY Tag Cluster
This tag cluster was also created using die cuts from the Kaisercraft Madame Boutique collection and again I edged one of the die cuts (the striped arrow) with an alcohol marker in aqua, in this cluster I add a faux sapphire brad and a timber clock dial embellishment.
Scrapbook DIY Option 3:
Tie it with Ribbon
Scrapbook DIY Lace Up Paper with Ribbon
Here I use two strips of patterned paper, that I punched holes in with a single punch and then laced up tying the pieces of paper together with coordinating ric-rac ribbon. This technique can be used along with clustering along the edge of your layout or as a border or anchor for your photo.
Scrapbook DIY Option 4:
Make it Fluffy
Adding extra dimension to your work is particularly appealing for layouts that will be framed or on display and also works well for most beyond the page projects.
Scrapbook DIY Wadding Backed Clouds
These die cut clouds are glued onto white polyester wadding and cut around the edges so that the fluffy wadding shows on the outside. One of the clouds has a silver lining, but as we know, all of them do really ;).
These clouds would work well with beaded dangles as raindrops or clustered with a moon and stars. They could also partially cover a sunburst for a summer or beach layout.
