Roxy Scrapbook Layout

DSC_1179The Roxie paper pack is so hip, cool and fabulous. Like that ultra-fashionable friend who effortlessly combines a vintage embroidered cardigan with a pair of cuffed jeans and killer heels, Roxie is all about style. Mixed and matched to perfection!

This layout is my version of the Roxie Workshop on the Go, which includes all the stamps, paper, embellishments and instructions to create this layout, a second layout and you can create a bonus project with just a few additional items.

Take-away Tip: With the new double-sided cardstock weight B&T patterns, it was so easy to customize the layout for my own look. I love a busy look with lots of mixed patterns on my layout, so I flipped over the linen-printed B&T and used the swirled, flower-printed side. This gave me those lovely patterns I adore, but I needed to change the journaling and title areas, the pattern wouldn’t have let me journal right onto the cardstock and still be readable.

The title was easy, just make it a bigger, bolder title with black embossed chipboard letters. For the journaling, I added a colonial white cardstock strip with computer text.

Whether you are working with a Workshop on the Go kit, or a page from your scrapbooking class, adapting your layouts to suit your tastes and your photos is the key to working with pre-designed layouts.

You can find the Workshop on the Go kits for just $$29.95 on my website.

I love making them my own! Just like the idea books, the WOTG is a great place to start.
