Hello all ! It’s Sophie here, and I am sharing this cute layout that is all about the loving bond between my little girl Sabrina and our dog Fiona. The February SCT Sampler included the perfect collection of products to use to illustrate that!


I started with a thick, white cardstock as my background and added a few watercolor splatters around the page. I backed my black and white photo with one of the Pink Paislee Bloom Street collection papers from the SCT Sampler, ruffling the edges up a little bit. I put the exclusive SCT quote card right next to it and adhered the exclusive acrylic word “Love” on it. I love that it fits perfectly and adds dimension to the flat card!


Then, I used my border punches and created a few scalloped borders with the different patterned papers from the Sampler. I curled and adhered them to the bottom of my photo and card.

I added the beautiful typewriter die cut from Doodlebug Design on the right side of my borders and wrote down a little note on it. 


Finally, I clustered a bunch of Bloom Street flowers and leaves on the left side, as well as a few scattered butterflies on my layout. I punched out a bow from white cardstock on which I applied turquoise watercolor. I cut out the note on top of my photo “you make me so happy” from one of the papers and added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops as the finishing touch.


As you can see, border punches are a simple way to add interesting details to a page! I hope you like this layout and that you feel inspired to subscribe to the SCT Sampler! They are so fun to play with and always bring the most recent beautiful products on the market to your doorstep!

Thank you so much for passing by today, and a huge thanks to Scrapbook & Cards for having me here!

Hi everyone! My name is Sophie Delorme and I am more than thrilled to be a guest designer for Scrapbook and Cards. I am a French Canadian living in Montreal with my partner of 21 years, our two beautiful children and our sweet Labrador dog that you will nearly always see in my photos. I work full time in a busy hospital as an endocrinologist. 

I started scrapbooking almost 15 years ago and I have been hooked ever since! I usually go with white backgrounds and am crazy about watercoloring, fussy cutting, layering and clustering in almost every layout!

I love to be inspired by this talented community and am a forever fan of Scrapbook & Cards Today with their amazing team and events!
