Karen is up today with an enchanting layout. Her use of the Sapphire ColorWays™ with this Welcome Baby layout is a perfect example of the diversity of this line!


The ColorWays™ scrapbook paper comes in an amazing selection of patterns. I was inspired to use a modest diagonal stripe with a subtle and delicate flourished edge to feature my sister's forthcoming bundle of joy. By using black and white photos with only a pop of color, I was able to focus the layout on the photos. The ColorWays™ Sapphire Accent Pack perfectly complements the new blossoming family, and they even have silver foil highlights.

1. Select the Sapphire Dahlia 12x12 scrapbook paper for the background, 3 photos, and one 3x4 accent card.

2. Cut a matte for two of the photos in coordinating blue cardstock. Double matte the main photo with vellum. Next, arrange the photos. Save any large bits of paper that will be covered by photos.
(TIP: If a large area of pretty background paper is covered by a photo, mark where the 4 corners of the photo are with a pencil. Use a craft knife and carefully cut out this space 1/4 of an inch smaller than what you marked. Rescue this bit of pretty paper and put it back in your stash for another project.)

3. Next, assemble an embellishment cluster and attach it to a crochet doily. Create a similar style mini-cluster for the lower right corner using half a paper doily.

4. Finally, embellish the layout with a puffy word accent sticker, flair, stars, gems, ribbon, transparency, paper doily, rub-on transfers, buttons, and brads.
