Finally Home | A Scrapbook Layout

Just a quick layout to share today.

This page never would have come about were it not for my June Best Day of My Life Scraptastic kit. This is a pattern paper that I would not have gravitated too, probably never would have purchased, but am glad I had it to work with. I am so happy with how this layout turned out.

Finally Home  from using the June Scraptastic Kit

That cityscape piece came as a single, plain wood veneer. I didn’t think that the wood matched the colors and tones in the paper or photo so I heat embossed it silver. The wood veneer took the embossing really well.  It’s a good reminder that if you are determined to use something that doesn’t match your project, think about how you can change or alter it to get it to work.

Finally Home  from using the June Scraptastic KitMost of the paper came from the kit, as did the stickers and the flair. I added  in a project life card, some punched flowers, the doily and grey Thickers from my stash.

While I probably wouldn’t have picked this papers up myself, I love that kits like this can push me to create layouts I wouldn’t normally create. The paper inspired me to find a cityscape photo and when I landed on this one, I knew exactly what the story would be.

Do you ever let products inspire the story and photos for your layouts?

Thanks for stopping by today!



  1. The paper is perfect with the pictures. I love what you did to the wood veneer – so perfect for this layout. I love the layers – perfect layout.

  2. Love that silver city scape! I let products inspire my projects, definitely!!

  3. Everything here is pure perfection, Tammy! I’m glad you took a shot at using these papers because they look wonderful together. 🙂

  4. oh i love that city landscape
    so very cool!!
    great layout

  5. This is the second time I’ve come across this paper today. Love it, though I really don’t have any city stories to tell. I generally will start with either a photo or story, and choose supplies from there. I too love what you did with that wood veneer piece. I really need to learn that skill next. Really creative layout. Fun, too, and a great story. Michelle t

  6. LOVE what you did with all of these patterns!

  7. Such a great layout!!!
    Love the colours and the layers you have added.
    I too have had supplies dictate my projects or give me a spark of inspiration or an idea that I may not have thought of without it.

  8. That city scape veneer is awesome! Great layout. The colors are nice.

  9. You gathered those elements together in a magical combination – love that page.
