Lets see Debbie's Layout!


Today is Debbie's turn to share a layout that she created of pictures that were take of her daughter on a recent trip to the Botanical Gardens using tips from "Toddler's and Tiara's"... Let's take a look!
Paper Collection:
Authentique "Gathering" collection.

The base is the blue side of the Foundations bi-fold solid paper. I used the solid brown side for matting the picture and the layering at the bottom of the page.

I cut a 4"x12" piece of the "Grow" paper and mounted it with brown cardstock leaving an extra bit of border at the bottom - enough to frame a border of individual words from the "Diction" sheet. There are over 200 words on a single sheet of this product! I also added a scalloped border from the orange/blue side of the "Grow" paper and tied a piece of blue/white ribbon in an off-center bow.

The larger picture is triple-mounted in cream, orange/blue, and brown cardstock and then framed with 5 3/4" and 6" circles cut from the brown/blue and orange/blue patterned paper. A scalloped punchout from the Excerpts sheet and some folded paper petals accent the top of the circle. The petals are made by punching out a 3/4" circle, making an overlapping small fold and then working the edges into a cupped petal shape with your fingers.

The three smaller pictures were printed with larger white borders and cropped down to 3 1/2" squares. Another calendar, framed with the negative from the punchout sheet, has the date of the event highlighted with pearls.

Thanks, Debbie!  What a beautiful layout, with a fun batch of pictures!

We'll see you back here tomorrow with a card from Michelle!
