Step 1

Supplies You’ll Need to Make This Layout:

Step 1: Use a piece of Gray Cardstock as the base for this layout. You’ll need 5 sheets of Designer Paper and ensure that you have different sheets of each of the papers.

Step 2: To start this layout, you will want to cut out all of your shapes. First, choose 4 Designer Papers and trim them using the larger wave with the 12-inch Decorative Trimmer. Make sure each of these papers are a different colour and/or texture. Then, using the 12-inch Straight Trimmer, cut each of the waves to measure:

  • 1/2″ x 12″
  • 1-1/2″ x 12″
  • 2-1/2″ x 12″
  • 2-1/2″ x 12″

Step 3: Using the white brick patterned paper and the 12-inch Straight Trimmer, cut 2 pieces to measure:

  • 3-1/2″ x 12″
  • 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″

Step 4: Take the red stone patterned paper and trim down 4 pieces to measure:

  • 3/4″ x 12″
  • 1″ x 12″
  • 1-1/2″ x 12″
  • 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″

Step 5: Choose a medium to light paper; then, using the Original Border Maker System and the Picket Fence Cartridge, punch out a border. You will then trim this piece down to roughly 1″.

Step 6: At the top of the spread (starting with the white brick at the bottom), adhere the 3-1/2″ x 12″ rectangle. On top of the white brick, adhere one of the 2-1/2″ x 12″ wave shapes, and on top of that adhere the 1-1/2″ x 12″ wave shape. Above that, you will adhere the reverse side of 12″ x 1″ red stone Designer Paper rectangle. Tip: Use Repositionable Adhesive so you can move the pieces around, if needed.

Step 7: Use the Repositionable Tape Runner to adhere the 12″ x 3/4″ of the red stone Paper to the Picket Fence shape. Place this piece at the bottom of the white brick paper at the top of your spread.

Step 8: At the bottom of your spread (starting with the top marble piece), you will adhere the 2-1/2″ x 12″ wave shape. On top of that, you will adhere the 1-1/2″ x 12″ red stone Designer Paper. Lastly, adhere the 1/2″ x 12″ wave shape on top of that.

Step 9: In the center of your spread will be your mats. This is will include the  4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ white brick photo mat and the 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ reverse side of the red stone paper square. You can either mat two photos here, (6×4 and 4×4) or you can use the 4×4 mat to add journaling to an extra style like I did in my final project.

Now you have a rockin’ layout! What do you think? Comment below and tell us!
