The One with a Newport Beach Layout

Thursday, February 26, 2009

I love being required to scrapbook (at least) once a week.

American Crafts now makes specialty paper - metallics and foils and such - and I'm not gonna lie, I was a bit hesitant at first cuz I thought it would be really tacky................ Then I realized all you need to do is use the right colors. Nichole's challenge this week was to use White, Ash, Robin's Egg and Sunflower. I found some of these colors in the specialty papers and made a layout about our Newport Beach adventures this January.

Create a patchwork layout by cutting cardstock and specialty paper to 3" square and adhere them to a 12 x 12 cardstock background. Replace some of the squares with pictures and a journaling block.


  1. If a person ordered all those materials to make your sample page, wouldn't it cost about a hundred dollars?

  2. Yes Dald, yes it would. But it's like woodworking - you've got to spend $2000 on tools in order to build your first thing :)

  3. i will pay the hundred dollars for you to make me the same page. it is loverly.

    yes it is word. but not one in the dictionary.

  4. Paige, this is Paula your old, old roommate! I recently saw your blog on your facebook page and I love your posts. I've really gotten into card making and I have tons of scrapbooking supplies-- always looking for fun ideas.

    Did you know that I moved to Long Beach? I work in Newport Beach, so I really love this sample.

    Hope all is well!!


  5. Newport Beach, huh? It would be awesome to live by that someday! :)
