Chris shows us how to create a gorgeous layout using several techniques including
paper tearing and using mini envelopes for hidden journaling on
To recreate this layout, you will need Green,
Pastel Green and Purple textured cardstock, Large Ferns
patterned paper, NRN Designs Tapestry patterned paper,
Pale Purple and Light Purple Washed papers, Mini Envelopes
template, Circle punch, Mounting tape, Brads, Eyelets, Metallic
rub-on�s colour kit #3, Spiral clips to suit, a small amount
of White Thread, Sonnets Alphadots Kiwi Embossed
stickers and Suzy's Zoo Suzy in
the green cardstock as your background. Trim the NRN Designs Tapestry
paper to size (approx 28cm x 28cms)
and centre on your background, leaving a border of 1cm all
round. Adhere. Tear a large corner piece of the pale purple
paper and adhere to the left of the tapestry paper as shown in
the layout. Attach brads to the corners.
your photo on purple cardstock leaving a border of 8mm, mat onto
the light purple paper leaving a border of 5mm, and then mat on
to the large fern paper leaving a 5mm border. Attach to your
page as shown in the layout. Punch 5 circles from the
pastel green cardstock. Use the Sonnets Alphadots Kiwi Embossed
stickers to create the title �girls� and adhere
with mounting tape to the bottom left of your photo.
create your Suzy's Zoo accent, place the flower frame from the Suzy's Zoo Suzy in
Garden stickers onto the purple cardstock
and leaving a border of 5mm, cut to size. Next, mat onto the
light purple paper again leaving a 5mm border all round.
the Suzy sticker onto light purple paper and keeping with the
shape, tear around the edges leaving a small border all the way
round. Use mounting tape to position Suzy
in the middle of your flower frame mat, as shown in the
layout. Attach your accent to your page as shown in the layout.
the �Days with you are so special� sticker with light purple
paper, then pastel green cardstock and then the large fern
patterned paper. Attach brads to each corner of mat. Adhere it
to your layout above the Suzy in Garden matted frame, with
using the mini envelope template and pale green cardstock,
create three small envelopes which will be used to hold
journaling card tags.
make journaling card tags cut paper or cardstock
of your choice to
size 6� x 3�cms (perfect size for the envelopes
that I have created). Once finished, place card tags inside
envelopes and attach to your page as shown on the layout. Punch
out three circles from light purple paper and set eyelets in
each. Thread white thread through each and then thread onto each
spiral clip. To finish off your page, attach spiral clip to the
tips of each envelope and rub a little of the iris metallic rub-on�s
on the mini envelopes.
