In The Zone

Whew...I've been in the zone lately...completely focused on the funtastic papers in Scraptastic Club's April kit, Great Adventures. So far I've completed three pages and am amazed at the different looks that can be created from one coordinated kit. The page I am featuring today, Zone Team, uses a cool chevron paper from American Crafts. I cut out a couple of zig-zag chevron strips and separated them from each other with a carefully spaced row of vertical cardstock strips on which I placed my title. Wow! Instead of getting lost in all that color, those letters really pop!

Everything on the page (except for the addition of a swimming brad) is from the April kit. 

Here's a little trick that I use to make ordinary stickers look more dimensional on my page. I love to layer them, but first I back each sticker with cardstock cut slightly smaller than the original. I arrange them overlapping here and there and use pop dots to lift some up over others for even more dimension. I love the layered look, and with the plethora of stickers in this month's kit, you can layer to your heart's content.

How do you use stickers on your projects?


  1. What a great job you did with the title treatment!

  2. Fabulous layout I love the colors & patterns together!

  3. This is absolutely fantastic, Madeline!!!! I love everything about this!! Cool title. I love the chevron and how you used the plethora of stickers. Your photo is just perfect on here. Don't you just love when you find the perfect photo?!! :)

  4. Seriously AWESOME! I love the colors and the chevron work you did. That must've taken forever but it was SO worth it.
