"Celebration" Layout Tutorial by Romy Veul

Celebration - step 1


Step 1:

Use the ‘Sweet Sentiments’ paper for your background. Punch alongside the edges of the ‘Fauna’ paper with a punch-around-the-page set and attach it on top of the background paper. Cut the ‘Herbal Infusion’ paper at 11x11” and distress the edges. Attach this paper on top of the brown paper.

Celebration - step 2

 Step 2:

Take another sheet of the ‘Herbal Infusion’ paper and trim it at 10,2 x 10,2”. Punch alongside the edges with a different punch-around-the page set and attach it onto the background paper.Take four sheets of the 8x8 Paper Pad and cut them at different sizes. Ink the edges of the papers and make a nice composition with them in the center of your lay-out.

Celebration - step 3

 Step 3:

Take another sheet of the ‘Fauna’ paper and cut it at 6.5 x 6.5”. Place it on top of the other papers. Take a chipboard frame from the chipboard package and adhere it in the right lower corner of the lay-out. Also stick down a doily onto your lay-out on top of the papers.

Celebration - step 4

Step 4:

Cut out two flowers from the ‘Flora’ paper and attach them to your lay-out with foamtape. Also cut out a postcard from the ‘Hello Friend’ paper and attach this on top of the doily with foamtape. Then place the photo in the center of your lay-out.

Celebration - step 5

 Step 5:

Create a cluster of embellishments in the right lower corner of the lay-out by cutting out a rose from the ‘Flora’ paper and by stapling three chipboard frames and a sticker from the Botanical Tea stickers sheet on top of each other.

Celebration - step 6

Step 6:

Also create a cluster of embellishments in the left upper corner of the photo. Cut out a rose from the ‘Flora’ paper and a colibree and two butterflies from the ‘Hello Friend’ paper and attach them to your lay-out with foamtape.

Celebration - step 7

 Step 7:

Finish off your lay-out by adding more fussy cut butterflies, a fussy cut rose and two Staples Ornate Keys.


Step 8:

Add pearls to the butterflies and add three chipboard circles as a finishing touch.
