I have a scrapbook layout to share with you all, featuring the gorgeous Papericious pattern papers- Often Collection, that I recieved in my DT kit. The trendy designs and vibrant colours of the papers from 'Often' collection make it a perfect choice of papers for making cute and trendy layouts. :)

I followed the second row-R2-- Balloons, papers, washi and banners. 
Sharing the step-by-step making process below :-

1.Firstly, I  decided which picture I wished to scrap about and the papers I wanted to use.

2. On a 12 by 12 sheet of sturdy card stock, I decided where I wanted the main picture to be, and  stamped multiple number of  'Happy Day' sentiments from Altenew Hennah Elements stamp set accordingly,  as shown above.

3. Then I sprinkled some Lindys' magical micas powder- Bubbly  over the stamped area and sprinkled some water droplets over it. That gave me a beautiful peachy and shimmery watercoloured effect.
3. Then I wound around a silver thread to make a rough circle . This step took the longest. It was quite difficult to hold the silver thread in place due to its stiffness. That's where my daughter came to my rescue ;) I asked her to hold it at one side while I stick the other side down, using some tacky tape.  :)
4. Now came the most challenging part (for me atleast :P) and that is, embellishing. I started off by matting the main picture with some layers of  patterned papers and adhereing it down. I die cut a few circles to serve as balloons with the twines, wooden buttons, added the handmade felt bow, made some banners out of the same patterned papers and stuck it in the corner, washi tape, added some suitable die cuts received with the Papericious papers., some butterflies ,enamel dots and sequins. You can find the enitre collection of the beautiful Papericious papers  HERE and the new arrivals HERE  .

5. Sprinkled some Lindy's magical micas powder on the right hand side as well, and splattered some navy blue coloured ink droplets here and there.

You know what's the best thing about making a scrapbook layout? Well, they say crafting has no rules and one thing that completely holds true to this adage is creating a scrapbook LO. There are still some guidelines for different styles of crafting, but when it comes to scrapbook layouts, I think it's more of a liberal sort, we are free to follow any design, any embellishment, we can stick to one colour scheme or we can choose to go wild with the colours, the choice is entirely ours. And this  creative freedom is what makes it more enjoyable :) Don't you think?
I hope you feel inspired to try making a scrapbook layout yourself, if you haven't tried already. Just choose your favorite birthday pic and scrap to your heart's content. Waiting to see your entries HERE .
