Step by Step Scrapbook Layout Tutorial by Lee-Anne Thornton

Design team member Lee-Anne Thornton has prepared a step by step tutorial of this darling layout that she created with our August Main kit!

Here we go!

Adhere a 9 1/2 inch by 9 1/2 inch piece of black card stock to the centre of the floral paper as shown above.  Machine stitch in white thread around the edge of the black card stock.  You could also add hand stitching or faux stitching with a white gel pen.

Add a 9 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch strip of pink gingham paper to approximately 2 inches below the top of the black card stock.

Add a 10 inch by 2 inch strip of the plaid paper to approximately 3/4 of an inch from the left edge of the black card stock.  Adhere.  Cut the bottom edge of the plaid paper as shown above.

Adhere an 8 inch by 1/2 inch strip of the small floral paper over the pink gingham and plaid paper as shown above.

Add the yellow square paper photo corners to the top right and bottom left corners of the photo.  I use a square paper punch and cut it in half diagonally to create the photo corners.

Add the white foam word "wonder" to the bottom right hand corner of the black card stock.  Add the floral flair button on top of the letter "o" of the white foam word. Adhere.

Adhere the "be happy" ephemera tag to the bottom left corner of the photo.  Next add the yellow paper behind the wood grain and small floral paper frames from the ephemera pack as shown above. Trim the yellow paper on the edges. 

From the ephemera pack, add the yellow bicycle die cut above the floral frame as shown below. Adhere.

Adhere the pink doily from the ephemera pack and add the chipboard "just keep blooming" piece on top using some foam squares or dots.

Add the pink tab to the right of the pink doily and "just keep blooming" chipboard.

Adhere the flowers in a jar chipboard piece to the center of the wood paper frame.

Adhere the large flower to the right of the floral frame.  

Adhere the ampersand flair button to the left of the large flower.

Bend the middle of the small butterfly die cut and adhere it to the upper left corner of the ampersand flair button.

Bend the middle of the large butterfly and adhere.  Add the large butterfly die cut to the right top corner of the yellow bicycle.  

Adhere a small yellow flower die cut to the top right hand corner of the large flower die cut and adhere the small blue flower die cut just below the large flower die cut.

Using a fine line acid free black marker pen, journal the year.

Journal the name with the acid free black fine line marker pen to the pink gingham tab.  

You have now completed the layout!
