"A Day Out" Layout Class...

This class was designed as part of my class work for A Trip Down Memory Lane. Please feel free to use these instructions to make your own layout. You are free to link to this page from any forum etc if you wish. Please do NOT copy this information and/or photos to use for your own classes/forums/webpages without permission.

Supplies needed:
Making Memories – Noteworthy – Hillary Lace Flower
Making Memories – Noteworthy – Audrey Scallop Ledger
Making Memories – Noteworthy – Artisan Edge Blue
Making Memories – Noteworthy - Hillary Green Floral
Making Memories – Noteworthy – Diecuts Glitter Box #29723
American Crafts – Thickers – Platforms, Black #42813
American Crafts – Thickers – Sprinkles, Aqua #42802
Maya Road – Trees Singleton Stamp – SMP855
Doodlebug sugar coated brads (3 to match your flower diecuts)
Ribbon (I used one by Maya Road)

Also needed:
Glue (I use Herma removable)
Black journaling pen (Zig Millennium)
Staz’On black inkpad
Charcoal Chalk Inkpad (optional)
“Office” date stamp and green ink (optional)

Start by cutting your “Hillary Green Floral” paper to size. We will be using the green side of this as the base for the layout. I scrap in true A4 size, so I cut mine to 29,7x21 centimetres (cm). Please feel free to adapt to another layout size if you prefer.

Pick your photo. I’m using one portrait photo at 10x15 cm.

Cut a piece of the Artisan paper, roughly 15x25 cm. Ink the edges.

Attach the Artisan paper to the bottom left corner. Cut two strips of paper. One from the “Hillary Green Floral”, 2 cm wide, and one from the Audrey Scallop paper, 1 cm wide.

Attach the Hillary Green paper strip on the left side of the layout. Cut a piece from the Hillary Lace paper measuring 16x5,5 cm and attach this 2,5 cm from the bottom of the layout and against your Hillary Green strip of paper. Next attach your photo – again against the Hillary Green strip and 6 cm from the bottom of the layout. Now take the Audrey Scallop strip of paper and attach along side the Hillary Green strip (so it overlaps your photo).

Pick a journaling box that you like from the die-cuts pack and glue in place. Use the Maya Road tree stamp to overlap this.

Choose a label, write or stamp your date on this, thread the ribbon through and put in place.

Add some die-cut flowers and write your journaling.

Make up your title using some die-cuts and two different kinds of American Crafts Thickers.

Finish off by adding some brads to the centres of your flowers – and you’re done!

I hope you enjoyed my class! Wishing you lots of fun creating your own version!
