Locker Room: Layers and Layouts



Hi it’s Tyra and I’m here to share two examples of how I use my favorite technique I use with cards — layers — and apply the concept to creating layouts! If you attended Clique Kits National Scrapbooking Day Event, you might have noticed the first creative challenge involved playing with layers! I mentioned that I pull layered looks together by using any combination of:

  • Color
  • Theme or
  • Pattern

I also keep my sizing easy.  In the case of scrapbooking layouts, many photos are sized to either the popular Instagram sized 4 x 4 inches (10 x 10 cm),  4 x 6 inches (10 × 15 cm), or 5 x 7 inches (13 × 18 cm). So, similar to how I cut cards I’ll usually cut layers for my layout up to 1/2 inch to a full inch larger so that al those pretty layers peek through!

So, here is a card with lots of lovely layers:


And here are a few layouts where I applied the same principles:



I love how these clean and simple layouts using May’s Kit “Carnival” turned out:

I hope I have inspired you today! Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
