Karen Foster stickers continue to provide unique and intriguing designs for embellishing your pages and adding a touch of sophistication. Each sheet comes with enough stickers for either a single page or double page layout and they are so easy and quick to use. The following layout shows how to use a classic design for a single page layout that took less than half an hour to complete.
This layout was created using It Takes Two Green Fibre paper, brown stripe paper, green cardstock, gold letters, a brown pen and Karen Foster Redwood Forest stickers.
To recreate this scrapbook page idea, follow these steps:
1. Use the It Takes Two Green Fibre paper as your background. If you do not have this paper, any nature green paper will do.
2. Position your border stickers down the left and right sides of your page and stick down. To minimise the risk of making a mistake with your placement, I recommend roughly cutting the sticker out while still on its backing paper. When you are ready to adhere it to your page, peal back a corner of the backing paper. Stick that corner in place and slowly pull the backing paper away from the rest of the sticker with one hand while sticking it in place with the other. This will make it much easier to get it straight and in the desired position.
3. Mat your main horizontal 4×6 photo with green cardstock and again with brown stripe paper. Glue towards the top left corner of your page, as shown above.
4. Mat your vertical 4×6 photo with brown stripe paper. Glue towards the bottom right corner of your page, as shown above.
5. Mat your remaining photo with brown stripe paper. Glue towards the bottom left corner of your page, as shown above.
6. To create your title, cut one square of brown stripe paper for each letter of your title. Place a gold letter in the centre of a square. Instead of matting the square, draw a border around the edges with a brown pen. Position your letters, one above the other in the top right corner of your page and adhere. Your arrangement will depend on how many letters you have. Overlap them if necessary.
7. Cut a rectangle of brown stripe paper for your journaling box. Use a brown pen to journal and then draw a brown border around the edges as you did with the letters. Glue to your page in the remaining space between your photos.
8. Finally, use the remainder of your stickers to decorate and embellish your layout.
