How to Create a Trendy Scrapbook Page with Pineapples!

Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you, sharing a trendy, tropical layout with DIY foiled pineapples!

While touring the booths at Creativation this year, I was seeing lots of pineapples, the color coral and gold accents.

I knew I wanted to bring these elements to this layout.

I picked up a box of multi colored wood veneer pineapple shapes (sold as table scatters) on clearance at Pier 1 Imports - you never know where you might find a treasure for your craft room stash - I've always got my eyes peeled for a bargain!

I wanted to make them really POP on this layout - Transfer Foils to the rescue!

ScraPerfect Transfer Foils are so easy and fun to work with - no special tools needed.

  • Simply apply a thin layer of Best Glue Ever on item to be foiled - let set until it starts to turn clear
  • Apply Transfer Foil (color / shiny side up) on your item to be foiled
  • Rub with your fingertip
  • Pull Transfer Foil off quickly (like removing a band aid!)

Play around with the foils for different effects, I wanted some of the coral background to show through my foiling for a more shabby chic look.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative weekend!
