I Wanna Be a Care Bear Scrapbook Layout

Being behind on scrapping photos can sometimes pay off. This Halloween photo of my daughter from 2003 (yes, 2003!) was sitting around waiting to be scrapped until the perfect paper collection finally came along. The Simple Stories Dream Big collection isn't a Halloween collection, but it had all the colors and elements I needed to scrap this adorable photo of my daughter as Cheer Bear. Think outside the box when looking for papers to scrap Halloween photos. Sometimes the perfect papers are from collections that are not traditional Halloween themes. I'll admit that I stocked up on this collection because it's just so cute! I know I'll be able to use it to scrap other photos of my daughter. I'm in love with how this layout turned out. It's just so bright and cheery! 


Keep reading for more photos and details on how I made this layout

 

 

This is a up close view of the top of the layout. I used my sewing machine to sew two rows of white stitching along the top of the layout.

I also tore and curled back the rainbow paper to reveal a bit of the reverse side of the paper. 

 

This is an up close view of the bottom of the layout. I once again used my sewing machine to sew a row of white stitching along the bottom of the layout. I used adhesive foam dots to attach tiny numbers that represent the year. 


I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the Care Bear portion of the title and tiny alpha stickers for the rest of the title. I attached the entire title to the layout using adhesive foam dots. I clustered some stickers and a chipboard rainbow from the Dream Big collection and a paw print that I made using a paw punch under the title. 


I created another cluster of stickers, chipboard pieces and yellow enamel dots on the left side of the photo. 

 

 

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope this layout inspires you to think outside the box when it comes to scrapping your Halloween photos. Follow my blog if you'd like to see what I create next!
