Swan Lake Scrapbooking Layouts

The Swan Lake paper is really beautiful and perfect for lots of different pictures, but I especially love it for fall pictures. I have to admit, at first I wasn't too sure about this paper because of the swans, but I have loved using it! Even if you don't like the swans, I think the other patterned papers are absolutely gorgeous.

I want to share with you today my layouts I created using the Swan Lake Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kit. I used the cutting guide provided by Close To My Heart and created the layouts pretty close to what they suggested. I love not having to think too much to create beautiful layouts!

I know some people worry about creating layouts without pictures, but I've honestly never had trouble finding pictures later to go with the layouts. And if you have trouble matching colors, just print your pictures in black and white or sepia!

Here are my three two-page layouts:



I did switch up a couple of the titles to fit better with my pictures, but the rest of the embellishments are pretty much where the guide suggested. I also decided to use White Daisy cardstock as my base pages for the third layout instead of the black script patterned paper. That way I would have more patterned paper leftover for other projects!

After these three layouts and eight cards, I still have quite a bit of paper, lots of the coordinating stickers, enamel gems, and shimmer ribbon left to use on other projects. Check out this post for a card I made with my scraps!

If you're interested in completing this workshop with me, I'm having a workshop at my house on Sunday, October 30 from 2:00-4:00. The cost of the workshop is $35, which covers the cost of your kit, shipping and tax, and my instruction. The sign-up deadline is Thursday, October 20. You can email, call, or text me to sign up!

I hope you try out the Swan Lake paper - I think you'll love it!
