Simple patterned papers are great for adding
colour to your layouts without making them too busy and
cluttered. Plaids and basic textures can be used to enhance your
photos, as shown in the layout below.
Use the two sheets of Creative
Imaginations Celery Linen paper as your background. Cut your K&Company
Blue Roses Blue Plaid paper into two pieces
- one measuring 5x12 inches and the other 7x12 inches. Adhere
the smaller piece down the left side of the left-hand page and
the larger piece down the right side of your right-hand page.
Select your two photos for the left-hand
page. Mat the small one with orange Bazzil cardstock. Mat the
large one with yellow Bazzil cardstock. If you wish, you can add
a strip of orange Bazzil cardstock to your photo mat, as shown
in the layout above.
Cut a square measuring approximately 8cm by
8cm and round the corners. Hollow out the square so that the
outline is approximately 1.3cm thick. Lightly ink with blue ink
and adhere as shown in the layout above. Position your photos on
top, as shown above, and adhere.
To create the first word of your title
(Liam), cut four squares measuring approximately 3.5cm by 3.5cm
from yellow Bazzil cardstock. Round the corners and ink the
edges with blue ink. Stamp one letter in each square. Cut a
strip of green Bazzil cardstock measuring approximately 1cm by
13cm. Adhere to your page approximately 5.5cm from the top and
position your letters on top. Stamp your second word (turns) on
a strip of yellow Bazzil cardstock. Round the corners and ink
the edges with blue ink. Position below the first word of your
title. To finish of your title, cut a large number (3) from
yellow Bazzil cardstock and ink the edges with blue ink. Adhere
to your page. You may also like to add an extra box with the
date to the bottom right corner of your page.
Finish off the left page by adhering a piece
of fibre across the top right of your page and placing a red car
sticker from the Persnippity Cars & Trucks stickers
above your large photo.
Now it's time to move onto the right page.
Cut a rectangle of green Bazzil cardstock measuring
approximately 18cm by 20cm and round the corners. Hollow out the
middle so that the outline is approximately 1.3cm thick. Lightly
ink with blue ink and adhere to the middle of your page.
|Mat your main photo with white cardstock. Mat
again with yellow Bazzil cardstock, leaving a gap at the bottom
of the mat. Adhere a ribbon in this gap. Position your photo in
the top right corner of your page and adhere. Position your
other two photos in the bottom left corner of your page,
layering one on top of the other as shown in the layout above.
Cut a rectangle of orange Bazzil cardstock
measuring approximately 5cm by 7cm and round the corners. Adhere
your Suzy's Zoo Ollie's Birthday
sticker to this
rectangle and adhere in the top right corner of your page.
|Cut four different sized squares from Bazzil
cardstock (two yellow and two orange). Round all the corners.
Ink the edges of the yellow square and stamp a number in the
centre. Adhere to your page as shown above to finish off your
