April 2020 Monthly Recap

 As the weather gets cooler here. I am continuing to have my twice weekly Scrapbook with me events on my Facebook page to keep the scrapbooking mojo going. At one of my recent events I continued with my monthly recap layouts this time I worked on my photos from April of 2020. I seem to go back in time to a prior year and then back into 2020 - I am enjoying the freedom with being able to scrapbook whatever I feel like doing!

I enjoyed creating this layout with my group! I focused on a few photos from the month and more journalling to tell our day-to-day story of April.

The layout was based off of this sketch from April of 2020 from the PageMaps blog. You can find this sketch along with others here.

The layout features the Lovely collection from Close To My Heart. I can see so many possibilities with the colors and patterns in this paper pack. I paired it with the coordinating cardstock as well as some pearls in the color of the year - Blue Belle.

The scalloped circle and title were both cut with my Cricut machine. I had chosen a title style to use on each of my monthly recap layouts for 2020 and am doing the same with earlier years recaps.

I always try to add some dimension to my layouts using embellishments such as the pearls shown here as well as glitter gems and ribbon or twine. I additionally will use the Thin 3-D Foam Tape under some elements to add dimension that way. For this layout I used the tape under the title as well as some stickers. 

A quick tip when using foam tape with stickers is to remove the "sticky" from the back. I use a little bit of cornstarch and a small paint brush for mine. I just brush the cornstarch on the back over a piece of scrap paper and then shake off the excess. 

You can see all the elements of the Lovely Collection over on my website here
