Bloomfield, CT 06002
We've been focusing on how to use the Just Because collection for everyday moments this week and today Guest Designer, Piradee Talvanna, shows us her version. As usual, her grown up style is perfect for this collection and we are so happy with all of the little details and thoughtfulness that go into her creations, but we'll have Piradee tell you all about it...
LYB: Do you use any tools that are not specifically designed for scrapbooking?
PT: My must have tool is your average cutter that you can get at any stationery section/store. I used this for everything, from opening those goodie boxes, to cutting bags of chips and of course for scrapbooking. These are really useful for me to trim/cut the extra pattern papers of my layouts or cards, this way I don’t have to worry about perfectly cutting the papers with the trimmer.
LYB: Events or moments scrapbooker?
PT: Would say that I’m more of an events scrapper but this year, I’m taking on project life to help capture all those little and/or crazy moments that never quite make it to my layouts/mini album.
LYB: Are you a neat scrapbooker or is your space a mess?
PT: MESSY (there are times that I just scrap on the floor cause where’s the table)
Just Because Layout by Piradee Talvanna
Hi Everyone, Piradee here again to share another layout using the gorgeous Just Because collection. For this layout, I started with the grid concept, dividing up the layout into various sections. In some of the sections I opted for pattern papers, creating my own little scenery ( love that cute bicycle design and the fun chipboard clouds). In other grid areas, I included the pictures of the “boys” (yes Hubby is a boy at heart) and also a small cluster of elements.
I would say that I’m a clean and simple scrapper but love to add in a little twist here and there. In this case, it’s all about layering (especially with the amazing selections of embellishments that are available in this collection wow). Here’s a close up of the little cluster scenery and of course more silver sequins.
And here’s another fun cluster where I first started with one of the journaling tags, then came the chipboard, don’t forget that fun transparency die cut and the must… the pins (and of course more sequins)!
We will have one more project to share from Piradee next week, so be sure to visit her blog The Scrapper in Me in the meantime.
Don't forget to run out to you local scrapbook store or Michaels and pick up some of our Naturals to play along in our contest. See the blog post HERE for detals.
Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
