Hi everyone, today I have a new scrap your scraps layout for you where I've created this epic layout using TONS of my scraps and my thin wafer dies.
I began by die cutting out hundreds of leaves. I love these using my scraps for things like this. I started by pulling out all of my blues and greens papers and got to work. It did take me about a week but I think it's absolutely worth it when you check out the finished layout.
After that, I drew a large circle on the page and started layering all those leaves. I'll be honest, it did take me about an hour and a half to do that, but that's okay I find the process so therapeutic. Seriously, just throw on some Netflix and get to gluing. You'll love it, trust me.
After sticking down all my adorable little leaves, I started adding some embellishments, buttons, enamel dots, thickers, and cork elements.
I'm so excited about all of the dimension on this layout. Sometimes on layouts like this, it can get a little crazy or chaotic... so my suggestion is to try to use embellishments in the same colour's that you've used for your leaves... it helps it calm down just a bit.
Another way to keep the page calm-er... is to use a calm photo with a simple background. This will draw all your attention to the photo. And then you can see the only embellishments I used that didn't melt into the background were around the photo - this is another way to draw the attention here.
I finished off the layout with a little bit of journaling around the edges of the page... and then I used my heat gun/hair dryer to blow away all those little glue gun webs/strings.

I hope this page isn't too intimidating. I know it looks like a lot of work but it's seriously so much fun and it looks incredible when you're done. I hope it inspires you and maybe you'll try and make your own version of this layout.
