Evalicious Layout | Insta Moment

This past Saturday was {inter}National Scrapbook Day and I spent a lot of the day scrapbooking and doing Project Life!  I enjoyed it a lot.  I feel like the Dos Equis commercials… “I don’t always scrapbook on NSD, but when I do it’s Evalicious and Lily Bee.”  Hee hee!  I decided to scrap a page about my lunch meetup with my new scrapbooking friend Pearl.  That’s sort of celebrating National Scrapbook Day! :)

I made this layout for the Evalicious blog inspiration post.  It came together pretty quickly using mostly goodies from the new Escape collection!


For this layout, I first spread a very thin layer of gesso onto my background kraft cardstock using a foam brush.  The thin layer allowed it to dry very quickly.  Then I layered some upcycled silver star cellophane (cut from a bag) on top of my gesso to create even more texture and interest. 

Did you know that you can use Evalicious packaging on your layouts?  I upcycled a small glassine bag that was part of some stamp packaging and used it as a pocket on the right side to hold my shipping tag.  I stamped the photo quote stamp from the Hello Photo Stamp Set with silver ink onto the tag and then slipped it into the pocket.  I also stamped onto the glassine and used a pen to outline more definition.  For this layout, I used a bunch of Evalicious stamps to layer and I just love the look! :)


I used one of the new Escape Large Tags for journaling.


One of the things I love to do to create layering and texture is to staple a tab onto a photo.  I also used the hello photo stamp and fussy-cut it.  Then I outlined the shape with an orange Sharpie pen, because I used light gray and the color didn’t pop out enough.  I adhered it to the layout using foam adhesive to make it more dimensional.


And of course, I couldn’t complete an Evalicious layout without using a badge button!

  4. Christine,
    I just bought my first Evalicious stamps because of your recommendations. Do you cut them out separately or do you keep them as one piece?
    Can't wait to use them.

    1. Hi Julie! I cut mine with some Tim Holtz scissors!
