Combine Photo Play Paper and Xyron to create these simple, yet stunning scrapbook pages.
Use your Cricut Maker to add the perfect dimension to these already perfect papers.

I love using the new Cricut Scoring Wheel so that’s exactly what I used to add dimension to these Paper Play papers. The line is Stuck On You and comes with coordinating ephemera. Ephemera usually ends up being my favorite part of any scrapbook line because it’s adding dimension and you don’t have to try hard. Photo Play Paper has a line for any occasion.

What are the best Photo Play Paper lines?

Of course, I have this amazing love for the Stuck On You line but I also love the Under The Weather line and all the beautiful pastel tones. Paprika is also perfect for those who love llama scrapbooking papers. It’ll coordinate really well with my llama waterbottle tags I made last month using my Xyron.

Supplies

Begin by placing the quilted background of your Photo Play Stuck On You paper. I used the black and white cactus scrapbook paper for my background and a bold lime polka dot for the quilted background. Be sure to adhere it using your Xyron Mega Runner for a guaranteed stick. When using a scoring tool on these backgrounds, the best way to get a detailed scoreline is to fold the paper both ways. This will give you crisp lines and it will pop on your scrapbook page. After I framed the photo, I added the LOVE banner from the ephemera pack and placed it at the bottom of the page. These scrapbook pages are minimal, yet they are beautiful. These Photo Paper Play papers are perfect for that minimal look and then you can add your flair. Use the stickers to add dimension and some 3D foam dots for added lift. Using your electronic cutter really adds the pop you need and it shows that you can use minimal designed paper and add more dimension to your scrapbook page.

 

Photo Play Paper is a quality paper with a thicker feeling and sheen than other scrapbooking companies. I can’t wait to use more of their items to create projects for Christmas and other year-round holidays.

Every few years we travel to Tonga to visit my husbands family. While I love seeing them, it is nice to be able to come home from a long vacation. I want my children to be familiar with how my husband was raised and for them to know their other side of the family. I love being able to make scrapbook pages and save them in an album for them. This easy tropical scrapbook page was really easy to create and I’ll walk you through it.

My OttLite was perfect for this project because the bright LED lights helped me with the placement of the essentials and my eyes do not see well in the dark areas of my home. Most people don’t scrapbook under their stairs in their utility closet. I also love the fact that my hole under the stairs has a speaker of its own. My phone speaker easily gets drowned out by the sound of the sewing machine and I can charge my electronics at the same time as the USB charger.
