Today I am sharing a layout I created with the “Watering Can” Stack from DCWV and Xyron adhesives. I love the variety of the paper patterns, the glittered accents in the paper, and the texture and dimension of this layout! You don’t always have to start with the photos… for this project, I am still not quite sure which photo or photos I will use. But, it doesn’t matter. The paper is so fun to play with!
Look closely at the details of how I created this scrapbook page.
Tearing the edge of the paper instead of cutting (even on two sides) allows for ease of rolling and folding the edges. I inked the rolled, textured edges to make the edge “pop”. Then, I adhered the base pieces with my Xyron Mega Runner.
To create balance, I tore one lower corner of the layout. Then, I placed a background piece behind the whole thing to reveal the new patterned corner.
You can create dimension using fun foam. Simply pull a piece of the foam through the Xyron 3” Disposable Sticker Maker on the front and the back sides, creating your own double-sided adhesive foam. Then, cut the foam into various sizes to fit the layout.
I fussy-cut some of the plants, flowers and birds from the patterned paper. Then, I ran the detailed pieces through my Xyron 3” Disposable Sticker Maker to create my own custom stickers for my layout.

I finished off the layout with a bit of white paint and some black paint spatter. This is a look I like in a lot of my papercraft projects. You can experiment with paint or ink and develop your own style, as well!
