Happy Scrap It Friday!!
Today I thought I would share another page out of my Long Beach, Mississippi Beach Album. It’s a page I put together to make as my title page for my scrapbook. Though simple to make, it sums everything about my album up into one page; more or less at least. The title on the is my description for what’s in this album — “Beach, School, Study, Repeat!” — it’s basically all I did!
Beach, School, Study, Repeat!
First of all I chose the picture I wanted to use. This picture was taken the morning my mother and I were at a Starbucks in Biloxi, MS while waiting for the apartment complex I was planning on moving into open. We are very early birds type people so we are almost always up before everything else. I love this picture, despite me just putting something in my mouth to eat, while no less talking on the phone. 😂

Using the “Life is a Beach” Cricut Cartridge© in Cricut Design Space©, I found the “Starfish Card.” Once I had it in a ‘new project,’ I made it basically any size and found a square under “Insert Shapes” on the side. Next, I made the square a tiny bit larger as the ‘solid’ side of the “Starfish Card.” Once it was a tiny bit larger, I selected both – the “Starfish Card” and square and clicked the “Slice” button; which is on the right side of the screen. I then deleted everything except the part with the starfish on it. Afterwards, I made the ‘Starfish Frame’ the size to fit over my photo.
After making the “Starfish Card” into a ‘Starfish Frame,’ I added five text boxes and typed in my words. For my ‘school’ and ‘study,’ I pressed enter after each letter so it would show them going down the page instead of across. Once I got everything to the size I wanted using a single-page canvas, I cut everything out. Since I am wearing pink in the picture, I cut the ‘Starfish Frame’ in Pink and used a purple shade from my Close To My Heart Cardstock stash for the words.
Putting it together was simple. Using my adhesive, I centered my photo on the backside of the frame and then on the black cardstock. Then I used my Xyron Create-a-Sticker to adhere all the letters by running each one through and then carefully placing them on the page before securing them down. <– I wanted to be sure everything was in place and lined up as well as possible.
And there you go — a cute, but simple ‘title’ page for a scrapbook. Obviously, you can use any picture and the words to go with them describe what’s to come in your scrapbook. Hope you enjoyed!
