12 Days of…
Throughout the year, we receive many requests to see layouts/ideas using a certain number of photos on the layout. So, when we thought about what we would do for “12 Days” we decided it would be great to show you how to use 1-12 photos on a holiday themed layout.
So without further ado, we introduce you to the 12 Days of Cropping…
On the 1st Day of Christmas, Creative Memories gave to me an idea using 1 photograph.
So often we think about layouts that are themed directly to the event. I challenge you to think outside of the box. The Made With Love and Woodland Whimsy Girl papers are the perfect combo for a Christmas themed layout.
Do you have that ONE photo that speaks volumes to you? Or is it the only photo that you took from an event. Maybe you might be looking for an opening page for a special album…all of which make it perfectly acceptable to scrapbook a layout with one photo.
To create this layout, you will need:
- Made With Love Paper Pack and Stickers
- Woodland Whimsy Girl Paper Pack
- Cranberry Embellishments
- Ruby ABC/123 Stickers
- Black Cardstock
- Holly Border Punch
- Poinsettia Punch
- Precision Point Adhesive, Tape Runner, Repostionable Refill and Foam Squares
- 12-Inch Straight Trimmer
Use the red and white gingham paper as the base for this layout.
Cut a piece of Black Cardstock to measure 9-1/2″ x 9-1/2″. Adhere to the centre of the layout.
Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper to measure 9-1/4″ x 9-1/4″. Cut out the centre of this piece leaving a 1/2″ frame. Adhere to the top of the Black Cardstock.
Cut a piece of the white patterned paper to measure 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. Adhere to the centre of the yellow frame.
Cut a piece from the green patterned paper to measure 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. Adhere to the layout.
Adhere 6″ x 4″ photo to the photo mat.
Using the Holly Border Punch, punch several borders from the green patterned paper. Cut a varying lengths, adhering to the upper right side of the yellow frame using Repositionable Tape Runner Refill.
Using the Poinsettia Punch, punch several poinsettias, adhering the centres to the holly using the Precision Point Adhesive. Adhere gems to the centre of each poinsettia.
Adhere title using Ruby ABC/123 Stickers.
Use Black Dual-Tip Pen to journal and draw faux stitches along the outer edge of the yellow frame.
