This Candyland scrapbook page was fun and colorful. This post is another of the series of scrapbook pages about my our vacation to the Black Hills. It also serves as another tutorial on creating scrapbook pages in Design Space.
This Candyland Scrapbook page is a nice example of putting the captions or journaling in small bits next to a picture. This explains that particular picture instead of having all the journaling in one place. It gives more flexibility in placing things but takes a little more preparation. And all the candy embellishments are Cricut Access images.
One set of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both. It is just too confusing. If it is the top sheet the pattern has to be small and light so that the writing shows up.
Cutting the Paper for the Candyland Scrapbook Page
A little bit of prep work is needed, like selecting your pictures first and moving the text to the appropriate spot Cricut is wonderful; for writing your journaling notes and writes then on the page exactly where you want them.
The brown squares look like chocolate and make a nice offset frame for the pictures. Be sure to cut these to the size that looks good for that picture.
Design Space cuts the top page to 11.5 X 11.5 inches, making a 1/4 inch border around the whole page.
Put the taffy pieces together. I stuck to the same color scheme but they look nice all mixed up too. Then attach the brown pieces behind your pictures.
Now you can attach the two pages together with the top page centered on the bottom page. Glue the embellishments and pictures to the top page where you want them and where the writing is appropriate.
Your Candyland Scrapbook Page is done. I hoped you learned how Cricut can help with embellishments and journaling.
