Walk through with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook friends! It's Monique here and I'm so happy it's my turn on the blog to show you my layout and how I made it. For today's layout I used the June Main Kit filled with the Let's Wander collection from Vicki Boutin. As soon as I opened the kit I knew that I was going to use the "Day Tripping" paper first! I totally love the many different colors and the design in this sheet.

Here's the layout I created using two small photos (6.5 cm x 8.5 cm) from our vacation in Greece last year.

Here's a quick walk through how I created this layout.

As always, I started with displaying the contents of the entire kit on my table, so I could easily choose my papers and embellishments:

I think this is my favorite kit from My Creative Scrapbook ever! I love every single thing in this kit! However, choosing my favorite paper wasn't hard, the "Day Tripping" paper had it all! So I got started with that sheet and cut off one third and used the 8"x 12" that remained:

Before adhering this to my white cardstock background I cut all the triangles apart and used my small Tim Holtz distresser to distress all sides of the triangles:

When I was done distressing I adhered the triangles in the same order they were before, using only a tiny bit of adhesive as I wanted to machine stitch all sides and fold them up a bit (therefore I added the adhesive in the middle of the triangles):

I chose two photos and matted them. Next I placed these where all triangles met:

Because I wanted to add lots of embellishments I adhered the photos again with only the tinniest bit of adhesive which allowed me to slide cards and die-cuts beneath: 

The journaling, a piece of string through the tag and white and silver paint drops came last and I was done! Here are a few close-ups of the end result:

This is it! Hope you like it!

Absolutely beautiful! I love the depth the texturizing of the edges adds to it all.
