Layered Scrapbook Page Tutorial by Charlene Teo

stampedlinenpassportcovers.jpgCharlene Teo, from Singapore, has kindly shared a tutorial on how to create this beautiful layered scrapbook layout (shown below left). She made this page incorporating fabric swatches as a Design Team assignment for My Favorite Memories.

Charlene also creates patchwork tote bags, and does stamping on linen for Japanese zakka items. They are a must-see in her newly opened Etsy shop, “Cool Citrus Basil.” You can also visit her blog, “Scrapabee.” At right is a few of her handstamped linen passport holders.

Fabric #1: Mananita branches

1. Paint the raw chipboard circle.


2. Photo on framespracticallyperfect.jpg
2.1 Choose your photo, mat it onto Heidi Swapp huge playing card (I used the
‘backside’ with the black and white polka dots print). I did a double framing using the
flocked chipboard frame by Heidi Grace Designs.
2.2. Let’s decorate the frame with some embellishment. From anti-clockwise
direction, adhere
2.3 ‘Practically Perfect’ coaster right under the pink flocked frame
2.4. 97% word sticker by 7Gypsies followed by the triangle tab sticker
2.5. the painted chipboard circle on the tab
2.6. the ‘100% authentic’ coaster onto the pink flocked chipboard frame. Of course,
you can go on to add as many goodies as you like
2.7. We will call this Frame A
3. Building the page
3.1. Choose a darker colored 12×12 cardstock and adhere a contrasting patterned
paper. I used patterned paper (bookprint) by Jenni Bowlin
3.2. Place fabric #2 right in the middle of the patterned paper
3.3. Adhere fabric #1 on the bottom left hand corner of fabric #2
3.4. Adhere a border stripe overlay (by Hambly Studios) on fabric #2
Tips: You could substitute the overlay by stamping on transparency to get the same effect.
Staz-on is a recommended ink
4. The title
4.1. ‘GET’. Letter G (Scenic Route). Letter “E” & “T” (Heidi Swapp block alphas)
4.2. ‘that’ chipboard alpha by Heidi Swappphotologstamp.jpg
4.3. ‘look’ – chipboard alpha real red by Queen & Co

5. Stamping
5.1. Stamp the ‘Photo Log’ rubber stamp onto a piece of patterned paper using
Brilliance Dew Drop Pigment ink
5.2. Cut the stamped image and mat 7Gypsies sticker on it. We call this Frame B
5.3. Paste Frame B right below ‘look’

6. Patterned papers cutoutscloseup.jpg
6.1 I cut out the shape from any patterned paper (orange), form a right angle (we call
this Angle C) and paste it besides Frame B
6.2 Layer ‘Frame A’ onto ‘Angle C’

7. Finish this by adding the ‘REMEMBER’ metal plate from 7Gypsies.
