Step by Step Layout Tutorial by Jodi Wilton

Hello and Happy Friday!
To kick off the weekend, Jodi Wilton is featuring our June Main Kit in a step by step layout tutorial!

Here's Jodi:


Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share with a fun step by step layout that I created using the FUN Main Kit for this month! I was inspired by the fun popsicles on the patterned paper, and thought it would be easy to replicate! Here is how I started my layout:

Step One: I cut a 12 X 2 piece out of the ice cream/popsicle paper. I then cut a straight line from one corner to the opposite corner, to create two triangles that were 12 inches long.  

Step Two: I cut the 12 inch strip of popsicles (my inspiration!) but I knew I was creating my layout on a slight angle, so I cut the paper, four popsicles from the right hand side

 Step Three: I adhered the pieces from step one and step two to my white cardstock sheet (as you can see there is a slight gap in the popsicle strip)

Step Four:  Add the Sticker (using foam tape) to cover the gap on the popsicle strip:

Step Five: Cut a 1/2 X 12 inch from the pink paper. Cut this piece again at approximately  2 1/2 inches from the left hand side.  Adhere to the top of the layout, cutting off the edges that hang over the white sheet of cardstock:

Step Six: Cut a 4 1/2 by 12 inch piece of paper from the spotted patterned paper. Cut this piece again at 3 inches from the left side. Adhere to your layout, and cut off any edges that hang over your white cardstock.

Step Seven: Cut a piece 2 1/2 X4 from the teal patterned paper (this is your popsicle base); Cut two pieces from the darker teal colour: 3/4 X 3 1/2.  

Step Eight & Nine: Use a larger corner rounder for the larger piece and smaller corner rounder for the smaller two pieces.

Step Ten: Cut a small piece from the tan patterned paper for the stick: 1/2 X 3. Use the small corner rounder for one end. Piece together as shown, and pop up using foam tape the two darker teal pieces.

Step Eleven: Add the flower and brad to the popsicle and adhere to the layout in the big gap.

Step Twelve: Add all other embellishments to your layout:
  • Flower Brad over the small gap in the pink strip of paper at the top. 
  • Title using the alpha stickers in the kit
  • Pop up the Simply Delicious Sticker and place next to the title
  • Add small photo corner stickers at the top right corner, and bottom left corner (use foam tape to pop up)
  • Add Wood Veneer SUN FUN at the bottom of the second photo
  • Add chipboard Popsicle next to the Let's Have A Great Summer Sticker 

Hope you enjoyed the FUN tutorial this month and I hope you are enjoying your summer and your June Kits!
