How to Make a Multi-Layered Scrapbook Page

by Paula Calvanico

A layout using Graphic 45 papers and Heartfelt Creations stamp and die set.


  • 3 Sheets of patterned paper
  • Various embellishments
  • Cutting tool
  • Adhesive of choice
  • Inks and spray mists
  • Texture paste and stencil
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Trim center piece of Sweet Sentiments paper

    Step 2

    Trim second and third sheets of paper to 10 1/2" and 9 3/4"

    Step 3

    Distress and ink edges.

    Step 4

    Now adhere each sheet on top of the other. Distress and manipulate edges for a bit more texture. *tip, cut the middle out of 2nd layer and save piece for mats

    Step 5

    I made my own flowers using Heartfelt Creations Sun kissed fleur stamp and die set.

    Step 6

    For cutting with the die, I absolutely suggest using the template for perfect alignment with the stamped image. Watch Heartfelt Creation's Emma Lou's Youtube video on this for more detail.

    Step 7

    All edges inked up and ready for color.

    Step 8

    Now for shaping. I use the petal shaping tool, but you can use anything with a rounded edge.

    Step 9

    More coloring with some Lindy's mists.

    Step 10

    Using a stencil I add some texture paste adding another layer to my page.

    Step 11

    I do a dry placement to get an idea of where I want all my goodies. I use my smaller pieces and scraps of paper for layers under my photo. I take a pic so I remember where most of it goes.

    Step 12

    I put out all my embellies. I pull quite a bit, and don't always use them all. I like to have a variety to choose from. Take time to ink up all your edges.

    Step 13

    Everything gets glued down, I pop my pic on foam for height. My flower centers are filled with micro-beads, I add some stickles for sparkle and liquid pearls randomly around the layout.
