Video Tutorial: Start to Finish Layout, Project Life, and More by Lydell Quin

My Creative Scrapbook design team member Lydell Quin is treating you big time today to a photo tutorial followed by a VIDEO tutorial featuring our March Main Kit!

Here's Lydell:


Hi there.
Lydell here with a video tutorial for you.
I thought I might share with you a little about my process with a My Creative Scrapbook Kit.

I used the Main Kit this month.

Once I open my box of goodies each month I go through the papers, finding things that go well together.

I have in mind that I would like to get at least 3 Pages and a Project Life Spread out of the kit.

I open all the packets and take a look at the embellishments....this helps me envisage the Photos I might have, or the topics I might scrap.

I find at least 4 different coordinating patterned papers that will suit my PL spread and cut each sheet in halves.

Then I take the halves and cut it into three 6x4 pieces.  I add in a 1/2 sheet of cardstock to break up the pattern.

I start laying out the spread and cut 4 pieces in halves again to make 8 3 x 4 pieces for the centre row.

and then I go through the die cut pack adding things that will suit first up.

From there I add photos and embellish.

See the video for how I work on one Layout, and go about mapping out a few others....

Thanks for stopping by.


Be sure to take a look at Lydell's beautiful work in our Design Team Gallery!

We invite you to join us and experience the possibilities that our coordinated monthly kits offer. To purchase a kit, please visit our website, here.
