12×12 Scrapbook Idea using Butterfly Punch

Hey Everyone,

So I know it’s FRIDAY and I generally post Tuesday Tutorials on TUESDAY lol, but I am out in Wisconsin and with the website crash, things are a little behind!

I did film this video right before I left for a few days, so I still wanted to send this out to everyone because the think you’re going to be inspired by this 12×12 Layout.

I kept it pretty simple and basic and really just used a few simple design principles to really draw your eye across your scrapbook page and its something you can implement in many different designs.

You’ll easily be able to recreate this scrapbook layout over and over again with different color papers and use either your Cricut or other punches to change up the look, but your eye is sure to be drawn, EVERY TIME, to the element you most you want to show off, YOUR PHOTO! 🙂

  1. I really like how quick you did this LO 🙂 Thanks for the tips!!

  2. Love this layout! You do say “quick and simple” ALOT!!! Which is a great way to scrap… my saying is “down and dirty” means the same thing…and that is what my Dad always says when something has to be done fast! Thanks again for the inspiration 🙂

  3. Great layout! love how the butterflies go from orderly to fluttering (complete with pearls). The strips really do focus the eyes. TFS!

  4. Great idea to use with the butterfly stamps!

    Oooh, I love this layout! I have a problem with trying to make everything symmetrical. I like this freeform style. I like your “sticky stick”. I’ve made one for myself that doesn’t transfer color…I found some stuff at Office Max called StikkiWax. I put a small amount of it on the end of a half straight paper clip. It works great!!

  11. Cynthia Guy says:

    AWESOME!! as always… 🙂

    I love the inspiration you give me.

    Hope you’re having a good day!

    pretty layout and I like all your tips, especially the Pearl Pen use. I’ve never used them.

  16. I so much appreciate all of the inspiration that you give us! You really are a “ruby”!! I have 4 kids and love to scrap- but a lot of times I have several pics that are related, can you do some layouts using several pics even if you have to do a double page layout? Have a blessed weekend!

  17. Welcome to the great state of WI!! I live near Lake Geneva. It’s a beautiful area to live & vacation. Great inspiration for this lay out. I like the colorful paper and the butterflies. Very springy/summery. Have a great day:)
