52 Layouts #21 Stone Grill

Friday 26 October 2012

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm off to a scrapbooking retreat this afternoon and soooooo cannot wait! I've got a lot to do today in order to get ready for it but I'm on a mission so fingers crossed I'll get it all done.

To join in with this week's 52 Layouts you will need:

2 sheets of patterned paper
1 sheet of cardstock
3 photos: 2 x 6x4 landscape and 1 4x4
Large tag
Alphabet stickers
A couple of embellishments, I've got a butterfly and a flower
Oh and a little bit of bakers twine.

Step 1
Choose a background and ink the edges.

Step 2
Cut patterned paper to  7x9", ink the edges and stick to the right side of the layout.

Step 3
 Mount two 6x4 photos onto cardstock 6.25x8.25" and stick to the layout but only stick three sides - the right edge should remain unstuck.

Step 4
Mount your 4x4 photo onto cardstock 4.25x4.25 and stick to the layout but again, only stick 3 sides - this time the top edge should remain unstuck.

Step 5
Cover your tag in patterned paper (I've used the reverse side of one of my papers) and ink the edges. Poke a hole though and tie through some baker's twine.

Step 6
Stick your butterfly and flower to the bottom of the layout.

Step 7
Now write the journaling on your tag and pop it into the pocket created on the layout.
Step 8
Add a title (notice the deliberate mistake?) I've inked my letters in order to bring them in keeping with the rest of the layout.

Step 9
Embellish your layout using any dots or spare punctuation from your alphabet sticker sheet. Thickers always come with extra dots and little shapes and this is a great way of pulling the layout in together. I've put them in each corner and also either side of my embellishments.

Step 10
(notice the title is now correct!) Using a ruler and journaling pen, draw a border around the edge of the layout in between those dots in the corners. I've also drawn a line either side of my embellishments.

And here it is all finished!

I hope this inspires you and if you play along just add a link to your work below!

Happy Scrapping xx
