Here is what you need to get started:
1 sheet of white cardstock
1 each of Day to Day Papers- bow ties, sunnyside lane, you + me, oh snap
Day to Day This & That Cardstock Sticker
Day to Day icons cardstock sticker
Day to Day say chees Doodle-pops
Day to Day Doodle Twine (red)
Day to Day Icon minis- hipster, anyway
Washi Tape: This Way; Ladybug Dot
Simply Sweet Ladybug Alpha Stickers
Other Tools Needed:
Scalloped Border Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Large Heart Punch
Adhesive: Foam dots, Tape Runner; Glossy Accents (or fast drying glue)
Two- 4 x 6 Photos (vertical)
Step 1: I love using white cardstock on layouts, in order to make the colors really pop on my layout pop. Start by cutting a piece of white cardstock: 9 1/2 x 11 1/2.
Step 2: I love using washi tape to create borders on my layout. Doodlebug has such a great variety that matches perfectly with each collection! For this layout I added two different colored borders- Ladybug dot at the top of the white cardstock, and the This Way tape on both longer sides as shown below:
Step 3: Center the White cardstock onto the teal side of the oh snap patterned paper.
Step 4: Punch out two scalloped borders that are approximately 1/2 x 11 1/2. Adhere these to both sides of the This Way Tape.
Step 5: Make the following cuts: Bow Ties Patterned Paper- 12 x 3; You & Me Paper- 12 x 1 1/2; Sunnyside Lane Paper- 12 x 3/4. Make a V-cut at each end of each paper
Step 6: Layer these three sheets as shown below. Leave approximately two inches of white cardstock showing at the bottom for embellishing. Add two 4 x 6 photos, so they are centered, and the bottom of the pictures are just above the sunnyside lane patterned paper.
Step 7: Creating the Sun embellishment.
- Punch two circles from the sunnyside lane paper. Adhere one of these in the top left hand corner
- Cut several pixies ranging in length from 1/2 to 1 inch. Apply a wet, fast drying adhesive to the circle already adhered to the paper. Arrange the pixies to create rays of sunshine.
- Add more wet adhesive to the second circle and adhere on top of the pixies, and first circle. Allow to dry.
Step 9: Wrap three pieces of twine around the the layout where the sunnyside lane v-cut paper is, and add a bow with the two tags attached
Step 10: Add the rest of the sticker embellishment. Use the doodlepop camera and layer with a heart punched from the you & me Patterned paper.
