Laura Rumble – “S”

Hello!  Laura back with another starry layout, this time using the “star Stripe” cut file (pre-cut available here)

I’m a big fan of stars in scrapbooking as I have a lot of boys in my life.  Sometimes their photos just don’t work with pretty florals and I think of the boys cringing when they are in their teens and looking through their albums!  Stars – well, you can’t go wrong with stars!

I went a little crazy with the sequins… I finished 8 bags and one pot on this layout.  I’m ashamed to say this doesn’t even make a dent in my sequin stash!

I’ve glued a sheet of acetate behind the Star Stripe die cut and then carefully added thin strips of foam adhesive behind the star outlines.  I lined some of the bigger stars as separate shakers and roughly split the background into three with the aim of having an ombre effect to the sequins.  I’m not sure if I pulled off the ombre effect but I do love how it looks.

With the shaker pocket done the layout didn’t need an awful lot more.  I added a black and white photo embellished with an alpha sticker and wrote around the edge of the stars in inks that matched the sequins.  One tip for you… if you are adding a foam shaker pocket and then adding more foam behind the photo the layout is going to be 4mm thick.  This means it may not sit nicely in the wallet in your album.  I trim a couple of millimetres off one edge and that lets it lie perfectly in the wallet.

All that is left to do is add the date and pop it in my album.  Thanks for looking!

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
