Hello Sunshine Scrapbook Layout
First Cut

Hello Sunshine Scrapbook Layout

Look at these bold and vivid colors paired with some vellum clouds and  water-colored butterflies for a bit of whimsy.  I love how the softness of the clouds and butterflies adds that finishing touch without being over the top.

For those of you wondering if there’s an easier way to adhere tiny diecut shapes to your projects, why not pull out your sewing machine or stapler?  It’s a great way to add a bit of a different texture to your pages, too!

  1. doing a feature bundle is a really great idea – I have yet to do the “sketch” business tho – I’ll have to research the how to on the blog – and you “chat” just fine 🙂

  2. I like the scrapbook pages, don’t make many cards. Your chat is great. I do like videos for the how to part of things. Tks 🙂

  5. This is super cute! I like your style very much. Did you distress the edges of your pink paper? Because I really like that look and would love to try it! I’m a fan of video tutorials! By the way can one create these types of sketches using the designer edition? Thanks.

    1. Thanks Ana! I distressed the edges of the pink paper by simply running my fingernail along the edge and kind of “scratching” the paper. As far as the sketch goes, if you mean the grayscale sketch I include at the beginning I each post, then you can create it in either version of the software. I have had a few people ask about that, so maybe a video tutorial is in order…

    2. I’m definitely going to try “scratching” my paper for future projects I have in mind, I like that appearance a lot! And yes I meant the grayscale sketch…a tutorial would be great! 😀 Thanks for the reply!

  6. This is super cute! I would love to see a tutorial on how to use the sketches. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Mitzy! Just to clarify, do you want more ideas on how to use the greyscale sketches I include at the beginning of each post? Maybe how to take it from a sketch to a page?

  7. I love the scrapbook sketches and the bundle looks really fabulous (love the hello sunshine banner!!!) I’m happy with this posting – it works for me! Cards would be OK, too. Thanks so much for sharing and for asking for input!

    1. Thanks for sharing, Ruth!

  8. Jen, your bog posts are perfect, and so helpful! I mostly make cards, but am able to use your scrapbook page ideas for them. I LOVE the look of the vellum clouds – brilliant! And using the staple for the little butterfly so his wings can “flutter” is adorable.

    1. Desiree, I would love to see how you interpret a scrapbook sketch into a card sketch! That’s what I love about sketches – they are just a jumping off point!

  9. Such an adorable sketch and layout. I don’t think I will have time to play along this week, but I really wish I did because it’s super inspiring.

  10. what file is the “capture the moment” in? i purchased the file bundle and can’t locate it!

    thanks, kathy

    1. Kathy – It is in the Echo Park thought bubbles file! Hope that helps!

  11. Oh what a beautiful LO 🙂

  12. Love the page and the sketch! I love to read your blog posts as well, don’t chance a thing I’d say. More videos wuld be fine, but not realy necessary. They do take a lot of time to create, I imagine, so I’d rather keep the every day posts. Love the new ways of bundeling the files you use too!

    Keep up the good work!

  13. While I’m enjoying the scrapbook page sketches, I would LOVE some card ones as well! Also, while the shape challenges are fun, I often look at some shapes (like a flower, or an animal) and go “how cute! but what do I DO with it??” Having some not quite as popular shapes featured to give us ideas as to what we can create with them would be fun, too!

  14. Love Dream Pop on there! looks so cute, Jen! <3 A A ron

  15. Love this…a tutorial is definetly in order – from start to finish please!
