Have you tried an Escape Room experience? Even though we didn’t successfully “break out”, it was still really fun! I wasn’t sure how to approach this layout but with the photo props that were provided by the Escape Room, I used them as my inspiration.
I pulled multiple colors from Pop Tone Assortment Pack (which you can see below) and cut each color into an inch or so x 11″ strips. This is a great way to use scraps if you have any!
The Wedding Cake White Cardstock was cut down to an 11×11″ square and matted with a 12×12″ piece of Basis Black Cardstock. The strips were placed in the center of the white square using a centering ruler but you could just eyeball it. Even with the centering ruler, my strips were not placed exactly in the center!
Since both the black and white cardstocks are a great weight, I decided to gut the black cardstock. This is a great way to save paper and reduce bulk in your scrapbooks. To do that, cut 1.5″ from the edge and 1.5″ before you reach the next edge – basically creating a 10.5″ square.
Now to decorate the layout…the title and handcuff embellishment were cut using the Cricut. “Escape” was in Design Space and I used a variety of letters to create “room”. I also added the magnifying glass behind the “c” in Escape before adding an offset to the title. I love the offset feature!
Between my daughter and I, we had enough emoji embellishments and stamps to complete the layout. It’s so fun and really expresses how we felt after (not) solving the puzzle within the time limit.
