Creating custom layout backgrounds – Paperilla-lehti

Hello! I love to create custom layout backgrounds and when doing so, I usually start with a piece of plain white cardstock. This particular page is about my DS on his very first day of school and I wanted to create a matching background for the photo. That is why I chose clear alphabet stamps for creating a stamped letter background pattern.

I find that happy bright colours go perfectly with the layout theme, so I used 3 different stamp ink tones and lots of papers and embellishments from the Basic Grey „Capture“ and Echo Park Paper „My Life“ collections.

I also made a little step-by-step video for you to watch. Enjoy!

And here are some close-up photos of the layout, too.

I would love to see your custom made layout background papers, so if you got inspired, please do share 🙂 !!

Happy scrapping,
