Layouts you all are posting in the Gallery. I have really been trying to do the same technique a lot of you have been doing which is layering. After 2 days and still no luck my question is do you have tips to creating layered pages? I even took a trip to my local M and couldn't find any journal cards or wood shapes to create this. Any tips would be appreciated.

I am having a hard wrapping my head around this technique. I may try the Layering class at GET IT SCRAPPED - sounds interesting.

Is Get it Scrapped your local SB store? Or is it a site that that offers everyone this class?

Have you watched any of the Glitter Girl videos? That's what has inspired many of us to start layering!

I order most of my scrapping stuff online. Almost every line of paper these days has a cut-apart sheet of journaling cards - that's one of the cheaper ways to go for those. I have cards from Echo Park, Jillibean Soup, My Little Shoebox, October Afternoon, Fancy Pants, Project Life (yes, you can absolutely use those cards in regular layouts!), and some others that escape me at the moment.

You can also use just scraps of paper in your layering, though having a few stickers or washi strips or label stickers or embellishments like decorative brads can add variety!

I am not good at eat either. Love to watch videos where people are very good at it. Here are a few: mercytiara, kraftybuns, and Lilith Eeckls.

I'm getting there! I use my SG sketches, I just downloaded a bunch that had a lot of layering. Glitter Girl website and videos and the Gallery for inspiration.

My layering still doesn't look as nice as I would like but it is a slow process for me!

My tip is to layer downward. Start with your photo(s) and then add things under. When you think you're done adding, take a few more journal cards, strips of paper, washi, punched shapes, etc. and slide them underneath the photo(s). Once you're happy with what's underneath it, you can start adding smaller embellishments to the top.

robmab...thanks for that tip! I struggle with layering and never thought to work in reverse.

I agree that watching videos has helped me start layering. I'm no pro at it, but at least I'm giving it a shot. As someone already mentioned, mercytiara has tons of youtube videos. She's a good one to watch for this technique.

I find that it helps me to cut down my papers into small pieces and then just play with them.

I started by COPYING layers.

I literally found similar papers & embellishments and then copied what I saw in other's LOs as closely as I could. It could never be exactly the same as I didn't have the same products, but I could be confident I would like the outcome if I used similar textures, sizes, and placement.

After a while, I was comfortable enough with the process to be more creative...I'm still no pro, but I always like my end result.

I also think since a took a long sb break I don't have any washi tape, die or punch that can make borders and journal cards are new to me so none of those. This makes it difficult for me to layer. My creative brain isn't working like it use to. lol. I will look into glitter girl videos since it looks like hers might be free.

I can layer without all those items really. You really just need different pieces of printed papers cut up & layered under your photo. You can layer with tissue paper, kraft paper & even notebook papers to get the effect...and that is popular in making the thicker layers behind photos. You can simply use pieces of lined notebook papers for journal cards & just cut them to the size you need. You can draw lines on blocks of cut cardstock to make journal cards.

Jennifer,

Awesome idea on the regular college ruled paper. I didn't even think about that. Thank you.

When I started layering I used tissue paper and vellum. I like the tip of layering downwards. Another technique I often use is cutting embellishments like stickers and journaling cards (die cuts,...)in half and tucking them in beneath the papers.
The more you practise the easier it becomes.
I also staple my layers down using a LONG stapler. This allows me to add more elements if I want and also adds dimension as the sides lift up a bit. Here is the link to my latest video which shows how I create a layout from start to finish (it has quite a few layers!)

Since I have been watching all the videos I have been scrapping more and layering more. I saw one that talked about using 6 by 6 paper pads to layer and that is what I have been doing. I also love washi for layering as it is super thin.

I totally work in reverse from my pictures down. You just have to be careful where you place your adhesive so you can still tuck stuff in behind photos and other layers.

Totally agree with the layering top to bottom advice... And there was a thread that had a bunch of free printable journalling cards, etc, listed... Think it was mostly geared towards Project Life, but a lot of those work with scrapbooking too... And even if you don't own a Silhouette, you can download their software and shop in the store - they sell printable journalling cards and shapes, and you can resize and edit them and then print them out at home... You'd have to cut them with scissors/cutter, but they'd work

I love the layered look too. The only time I get it right is when I take a class.

Lilith,
I have a stupid question. When you use your stapler how does it not stick into your mat. I think that is such a good idea. Makes the page come together faster BUT I was thinking to myself that it would stable right to your table!

I have a really long stapler that enables me to staple all over the page. I bought it 13 years ago for making little booklets when I was at teacher training college. TOTALLY worth it.

I do like Robyn does and start with my photo and then tuck things around and under it. I have a process post on my blog if you're interested in seeing how one of my pages came together.
