How to Make Easy Scrapbook Pages: Mask Off Page Edges for a Simple Band Foundation

 How to Make Easy Scrapbook Pages | Get It ScrappedUse this 7-step formula to make easy scrapbook pages. Doris Sander made a simple and  fun band foundation for “Hot Pink” though the clever use of a chevron border mask.  The masked pattern gives the page a hip feel while the two-toned effect adds visual interest. Once she’s limited to working within the remaining band order, her choices are reduced and the work is easier.

How to make this layout

  1. Start with a white cardstock base and your favorite large stencil. Use the stencil and paint or mist to fill a narrow border on one side of the canvas and a wider border on the other side leaving a 7 inch band down the center. NOTE: use a scrap paper to mask off sections of the stencil as you alternate between two colors for filling it in. Doris used yellow and pink.
  2. Stitch or draw lines on each side of the 7″ wide band in the center. Add subtle inking or paint along these lines.
  3. Mount a 6″ by 4″ photo flush with page top.
  4. Trim 3 pennants about 2″ wide from patterned papers. Mat or frame 2″ x 5″ photo or ephemera and tie with wide soft ribbon. Layer pennants and tied ephemera along bottom edge of photo.
  5. Trim 2 small 1/2″ pennants and embellish with rub-ons. Layer on the larger pennants.
  6. Trace or stencil a burst at bottom right of the center band, flush with and running off page bottom. Fill with color. Mount title on burst.
  7. Embellish cluster above with chipboard burst.
