Quarterly Scrapbook Kit Show + Share | Special Guest Denine Zielinski

Hello friends! I’m excited to be here once again on the AED blog to share how one of my page ideas for the Labels Scrapbook Kit came together. If you haven’t had a chance, you can go and check out my other blog post which includes six different ideas for this kit. There are also planning posts from the incredibly talented Shu-Wen Tham and Linda Jordan that you do not want to miss.

For this spread, I used the 12x12 Pastel Labels Patterned Paper to create a home for a title, journaling, and a few photos.

Here is what my original sketch looked like:

I started by deciding what part of the pattern paper that I wanted to keep. I did this with a clear piece of plastic sized to 7x8.25 (you can see this in my video below). Once I placed the plastic piece to where I wanted it, I trimmed the paper down to 7x8.25. 

I then used the digital version of the patterned paper in Photoshop Elements to type up my journaling and add my digital word art. I ran the physical paper through my printer, but you can just as easily print these on sticker paper and then adhere the “stickers” to the patterned paper.

I also used the digital paper to create a clipping mask that allowed me to print my photos in the shape of the labels.  This is also on my video in case you are interested. Once I printed my photos, I fussy cut them out. I adhered the photos with foam squares and then added the hearts with my tiny attacher.

To bring my two pages together, I added a third heart on my full page photo. I finished off by adding puffy letter stickers to that heart with my great neice and nephew’s intitials.

After I finished my spread, I decided to add a clear phrase sticker from past Story Kits to each of my smaller photos. This happens quite often for me as I walk past my spreads displayed on my desk. 

Here’s an image of the finished spread:

And here is a short process video for how I put my spread together:


Thank you all for joining me on this fun journey with the Labels Quarterly Scrapbook Kit. I don’t often plan spreads in advance, and I have to say that I loved it. You can see the other pages that I created on my Instagram @Denine2. I definitely got a lot of mileage out of this kit, and I still have so many more kit components left for more pages! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about this spread or any of my other sketches. Happy storytelling, my friends!

      Thanks so much. I put the title together using 2 different digitals. The "love" is a digital from the Magic of Moments class. The "you guys" is from the Hello Story 2 class.
