Good morning everyone, Nancy here today to share with you a layout I made of my daughter and a few of her friends.
- Hydrangea Hippo Love is Grand Kit
- Smooch Spritz Emerald Sprinkle
- White Core'dinations Cardstock
- American Crafts Thickers
- Studio Calico Wood Icons
- Webster's Pages Journal Card
- Martha Stewart Glitter
Step 1: To make the most of my paper, I cut a border out of my paper at 1/2 inch all the way around and mounted it to my white cardstock. This leaves me with a sheet of paper 11x11 to use on a later project.
Step 2: I cut the stiped paper at 3"x 11 and mounted that inside the border and added a piece of ribbon just underneath.
Step 4: I glued my mounted photo underneath the ribbon on my layout. And added the journaling card right under the first photo.
Step 5: To add the title, I first placed my alphabet onto a clear ruler, this allows me to place the letters in a straight line as well as move them around to see where they best fit.
If you like, you could stop here with a title, journaling and photos, this layout would be complete. Or you can take it to the next level by adding embellishments.
Step 6: To embellish the wood icons, I first misted them with the Smooch Spritz, and then applied a layer of dry adhesive to the top (I used my Xyron adhesive, but any glue will work).
Step 7: Sprinkle glitter over the adhesive. I used my finger and a piece of sticker paper to ensure the glitter was secured.
You can then place the shapes throughout your project. I also added a few cardstock hexagons for added interest.
Step 8: Create tab shape from cardstock and adhere to top corner of layout. I added an additional glitter shape on top.
You can add additional ribbons and trims, stickers, etc as desired.
Thanks for stopping by.
