Morning Chapesses

Another installment of 52 Layouts for you today and today there is a festive feel to my layout in celebration of the Get Ready for Christmas workshop I'm running tomorrow! I've got 15 people all making 30 Christmas cards each plus a little bonus project too - it's going to be a busy day!

So to join in this week you'll need:

3 x patterned papers
2 x coloured card (I've also got white pictured but I didn't use it)
Large & small alphabet stickers
A frame and some other embellishments - I have some little tiles.
and some photos!

Step 1
Choose a background paper...

Step 2
Trim the background to 11.5", ink the edges and stick onto a cardstock base.

Step 3
Cut another patterned paper to 9" square, ink the edges and stick to the middle of the layout.

Step 4
Cut a strip from another patterned paper to 2.5x11", ink the edges and stick across the layout.

Step 5
Trim two photos to 4" square and mount onto red card 4.25" square, then position and stick onto your layout.

Step 6
Add a strip of ribbon across the layout.

Step 7
Now work out what photo is going in your frame. I chose a smaller version of one of the main photos from my layout. Draw around the outside of the frame then trim the photo, cutting just inside the lines. Then stick the frame to the photo and then stick onto your layout.

Step 8
Add a title using large and small alphabet stickers.

Step 9
Add a subtitle.

Step 10
and finally add your embellishments at various points around the layout. I went for little tiles and dotted in clusters of 3.

And that's it, all finished!

To join in next week you will need:

3 x patterned papers (one of mine is die cut)
one piece of card
Fabrips (I'm new to these too...!)
Alphabet stickers
A few embellishments - I've gone for chipboard banners (hmmm may need small alpha stickers to go on these?), and a couple of flowers.

Thanks so much for joining in and if you do play along this week link your layouts below!
