Papercraft Like a Pro, scrapbooking

First Communion Scrapbook Layout

I had been scrapbooking only a short time when I first made a layout about my First Communion.

Now, I will admit that I NEVER remake scrapbook layouts after I create them. I understand that the layout I create is not only a representation of a specific event in time, but it also represents a place in my scrapbooking journey. Not to mention the influence of papercrafting trends, as well.

But after I completed the “Scrapbook Tutor” video series on the Sandpaper Road YouTube Channel, I was inspired to re-create this layout in particular. I couldn’t believe my original choices of color, structure and journaling (not to mention that title)! So I used the “Celebrate Moments” paper collection by Craft O’Clock and a variety of Xyron adhesives to remake this layout.

Watch the full, REAL-TIME tutorial of my process HERE!
This “Celebrate Moments” paper collection by Craft O’Clock is PERFECT for my First Communion scrapbook layout!

I used “Un-Du” Adhesive Remover to safely remove my photos from the original layout.

I used the Xyron Mega Runner, the Xyron Tape Runner and also the Xyron 3” Disposable Sticker Maker throughout this whole layout.
I wanted to create some hidden flaps to hold additional photos and extended journaling.
And HERE is the much-improved, newly re-made First Communion scrapbook layout.
Here is how it looks with the flaps open.
The “Special Occasions Quotes – First Holy Communion” are PERFECT!

Don’t worry about re-making your own layouts. As I said, this is the first time I have EVER done this, and I am glad that I did. That “Celebrate Moments” paper just had to be used with these pictures! But, honestly, if I re-made every layout that I didn’t like, I would never get anything accomplished!

Thank you for looking, and I hope this inspires you as you move forward in your scrapbooking goals!
