Storytelling With The Rainbow Scrapbook Kit | No. 3

I'm back today to share another project using the Rainbow Scrapbook Kit

Today's story is all about Simon, Aaron and me starting to play a Star Wars Role Playing Game (I shared the image + story on Instagram last week). 

Let's dive in to today's video: 

Here are some images of my project: 

This story had quite a few words so I needed to figure out a way to incorporate them all. To do something a little different I created a 11 inch x 8.25 inch page (that could be folded down to 7 inches wide) and set it up in Photoshop with the blocks of color as homes for my story (you'll see more of that below). As you'll see in the video I played around with a few different color combinations before settling on this one.

On the outside of the flap I added part of one of the pattern papers. 

In addition to my full page photo I printed out two photos (sized to 3x3) that circle-punched those with a 3 inch circle punch. I took one of those photos and stapled the vellum "currently" circle on top before adhering. I also added a perforated phrase strip from the Awesome Story Kit on top. 

One of the things I love most about working outside the page protectors is building interactive pages like this one that can be folded to create more room (and to get to incorporate more patterns, photos or words). 

On the inside of the fold-out page I left one "block" blank as a spot for pattern paper and embellishments. I dove into my stash to find a couple circles to layer on top of each other and used a rolling date stamp + StazOn to stamp directly onto the pleather circle. 

To link the two pages of the story together I created a visual triangle using the wood veneer rainbows. On top of each of those I added clear phrase stickers and a small gold star. 

A happy accident on this one was realizing that the smallest piece of the plastic rainbow set fit perfectly around my 3 inch circle photo. On top of that I added a gold chipboard heart and layered a clear phrase sticker on top.

    I have a question about the digital kit. In the past all of the kits I've bought have had the layered files where these are flat. Do I need to buy the digital kit to get the layers? I subscribe to the scrapbook kit. I'd love to print some of the patterned paper without the lettering. I just love the black rainbow paper! And I have been enjoying these videos. Thanks for the inspiration.

      Hi! Any time we have offered papers they have always been flattened JPG's (which is what is included with these kits). The only time we do individual layers is when it's a Layered Template (it comes as a PSD file).
