Whilst it's not a Christmas layout, it is all about FAMILY.
It's also one for all you heritage scrappers and genealogists out there :)
Supplies you'll need (which can be found at the Scraploot Online Store):
Echo Park Time & Seasons Patterned Papers
- PP1 Yesterday's News
- PP2 Astoria
- PP3 Lovely Notables
- Journal Cards
Echo Park Time & Seasons Element Stickers
Echo Park Time & Seasons Alpha Stickers
Textured Cardstock - White
Kaisercraft Paper Blooms - Olive
Green Tara Flowers - Rust
2Crafty Chipboard - Decorative Border Pole
XPressIt Double Sided Tape
Other: Dymo Labels; Ink; GlimmerMist
Step 1: Choose a base paper or PP1. I have used Yesterday's News.
Step 2: Cut a 30cm x 15cm rectangle using PP2. I have used Astoria. Mount the rectangle on the cardstock, so there is a border of a few mm all the way around. Ink both paper and cardstock if desired.
Step 3: Cut a 13cm x 19cm rectangle using PP3. I have used Lovely Notables. Mount the rectangle on the cardstock, so there is a border of a few mm all the way around. Ink both paper and cardstock if desired.
Step 4: Mount your photo on cardstock, leaving a border of a few mm all the way around. Ink both photo and cardstock if desired. My photo measures 9cm x 13cm. You would adapt the measurements in Step 3 if your photo was larger.
Step 5: Adhere PP2 to PP1 (base) approximately 5.5cm from the top of PP1.
Step 6: Adhere PP3 to PP2 approximately 4cm from the left hand side of PP1, and so the overhang is about the same at the top and bottom of PP2.
Step 7: Adhere large Green Tara Flower to the bottom right hand corner of PP3. Adhere photo to PP3, so that the bottom right hand corner of photo is in the centre of the large flower.
Step 8: Adhere remaining Green Tara Flowers in a cluster. (I played with the colour of my Green Tara Flowers by applying some GlimmerMist in a coffee colour).
Step 9: Adhere Kaisercraft Paper Blooms in another cluster, on top of the Green Tara cluster.
Step 10: Add the Time & Seasons Element Sticker - Old Car and Journaling Tabs. Use Magic Mount under the top journal tab.
Step 11: Add the 2Crafty chipboard as shown. I have inked mine with Pinecone Ink.
Step 12: Add the Time & Seasons Alpha stickers for the title, and the element stickers of your choice. I have used the camera; printed flower; and Family Time banner. Make these pop with Magic Mount, after backing with cardstock. If you don't have a Dymo Labeller you could use mini alpha stickers.
Step 13: Add your jounaling. Remember if you're doing a heritage page, to add as much accurate information as you can !
And you're done...
As you can see, there are not too many steps involved, so perfect for this busy time of year !
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.
Happy Scrapping xxx
