Ivy Lane and Art Philosophy Scrapbook Layout

Hello crafty friends,
I hope your Thursday is going great! Today I am sharing a layout I created with the Ivy Lane Paper Pack and Elements. But before I get to that, I wanted to share today’s scripture reading for those that are following along with the reading of Psalms 119 and participating in the Counting of The Omer.

ה He

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, 
And I shall keep it to the end. 
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; 
Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. 
35 Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, 
For I delight in it. 
36 Incline my heart to Your testimonies, 
And not to covetousness. 
37 Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, 
And revive me in Your way. 
38 Establish Your word to Your servant, 
Who is devoted to fearing You. 
39 Turn away my reproach which I dread, 
For Your judgments are good. 
40 Behold, I long for Your precepts; 
Revive me in Your righteousness.
Psalms 119: 33-40

What an awesome passage. May we each strive to observe His teaching and instruction with our whole heart indeed! So now on to my layout for today.

As I mentioned above, I used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge  and the Ivy Lane Paper Pack and the Ivy Lane Complements set for this project. I used the Ivy Lane purple cardstock and cut the image out for the background. You can find the large doily shape on page 66 in your Cricut Art Philosophy handbook. I cut it at 10.5 inches.

The paper pack is a great value. You get 12 sheets of paper. Six patterned papers that are double sided print (2 of each pattern) and 6 coordinating cardstock sheets. All for less than 10 bucks! That is only .83 cents per sheet!  For this project, I did use some regular white cardstock from my stash. I wanted to layer my mats.

Here is a closer look at the way I layered the different elements. They are stickers so you could just peel and stick, but I wanted to give them a little lift, so I used some foam tape to give them just a bit more dimension.

Here you can see that I inked the edges of the patterned paper with some Cocoa Ink  to give it a little extra character. This layout came together very quickly. I will be sharing a couple of more layouts I made with the Ivy Lane Paper Pack and Ivy Lane Complements over the next couple of days, so that you can see how far you can stretch the materials provided!
