Hello friends! For My Creative Scrapbook I wrote this step-by-step tutorial using the colorful October Creative Kit. This month the Creative Kit features the "My Happy Place" collection from Doodlebug Design.
This is the layout I created the step-by-step for:
For this layout I started with a strip of paper measuring 6.5" x 10" cut from the sheet called "Garden Girl". With a pair of fringe scissors I cut a fringe row at the bottom of the paper:
Using a pencil I curled the fringe to add a little more interest:
Next I cut a strip of paper measuring 2" x 11.5" from the sheet called "Mint To Be" and on both the left and right side I cut "fish tails". I placed this strip of paper on top of the colorful paper with the fringe:
I printed a large photo (5 3/4" x 7 3/4") of my sons with our our puppy, matted this and placed it on top:
On the right side of the photo I created a little cluster. I definitely needed the journaling card "Home is where your puppy is"!
At the top of the layout I added more word die-cuts:
On the left side of the photo I placed some die-cuts and at the top of the page I added more die-cuts as well:
After adding two more word stickers and a die-cut, some machine stitching and a stamped date my layout was finished!
Here are a few close-ups:
Hope you like it!
