5 | You Rock layout | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! It’s Sue here today to share my latest design team page with you using the fabulous ‘You Rock’ collection. I am still loving creating pages with this collection – with it’s bright colours and bold patterns, it’s perfect for photos of my twin terrors! Just like this snapshot from their 5th birthday a few months ago. We always have two cakes on their birthday – this year they asked for their favourite Transformers. (Just because they share the same birthday shouldn’t mean they have to share a cake too, right?!)

I started this page with a sheet of white cardstock as my base. I already had a basic design in mind, which I knew was going to be quite busy with many colours and patterns, so the white background provided the viewer’s eye a place to rest.

I added torn pieces of the ‘Plus One‘ paper to the top and bottom of my page, which I overlaid with a colourful striped piece from the ‘Stripped‘ paper.

I used a variety of papers for the layers under my photo – ‘Galactic‘; ‘Night Sky‘; ‘In Line‘ and ‘Random‘. I added in some torn pieces of washi tape sticker; red paper doily and some messy cotton thread as well.

The card with the jumbled numbers was cut from the ‘Random’ paper and I used it as my title card by simply outlining the 5 with a Sharpie pen and using an arrow from the chipboard accent stickers to highlight it. The wow word piece was from the die cut ephemera pack and I popped it onto some foam tape to mount it a little higher on the card.

Along the bottom of my page, I created a secondary focal point to anchor my journal card, using similar items to the main section of the page. This time I added in a flair button and clustered some enamel shapes nearby.

I then added a few extra enamel shapes around my page, as well as some phrase stickers from the accessory sticker sheet.

To finish off, I added some happy birthday themed stamping around my page and some splatters of black mist.

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I will be back again soon with another project. Until then, happy scrapping!

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. She began scrapping in 2008, shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons in 2012, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and since her return says she is enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. She is also a 2017 Scrapbooking Memories magazine Creative Team member. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.
