Hi! I'm back today with my first A4-sized scrapbook page using Stardream Metallics cardstock. I usually make 12 x 12 scrapbook layout but creating this smaller size version is just as much fun. I picked the Mars and Opal cardstocks from Stardream Metallics collection for my layout, I simply love the shimmering colors for a scrapbook background!
Step 1: Prepare the supplies for creating the layout, including the die-cut shapes that will be used for embellishing the scrapbook page.
Step 2: Run the metal dies and color or patterned cardstock through the die-cut machine. For the following shape, I cut the tree twice (one with a solid green cardstock and another with patterned cardstock. See supplies list for the 6 x 6 pattern cardstock used for this step.
Step 3: Start decorating the 8 1/2 x 11" Stardream cardstock with the cutouts from the dies. Gold foil cardstock is used as some of the embellishment as well.
Step 4: Add some pearls and acrylic pieces for some unique (3-dimensional) touches to finish off the layout.
I hope you enjoy this layout! If you haven't try a A4-sized layout you should really give it a try! Here I wish you have a wonderful holidays! - Alexia
