Good morning! Laura here today to share a simple and quick layout to help you scrapbook your Christmas photos! I also have a couple of tips for you toady. Here’s the first one: *tip 1 – all those gorgeous Christmas papers may be a little busy for your style – turn them over and use the other side to coordinate with your favorite ‘busy’ side so the papers don’t clash
To create this layout:
Step 1 – gather 3 sheets of patterned paper – and tear across one sheet at about 8 1/5 inches or 22cm, second sheet tear the bottom off at about 3 inches or 8 cm, then adhere to the your third full sheet Step 2 – create a photo mat with a torn side about 2 inches bigger than your photo Step 3 – die cut 3 fitted fishtails, celebration flags and your 2 large and 4 small of my favorite poinsettia die and assemble
*tip 2 – You can use your favorite shape die – I used my stitched circle die – to cut out elements from your Christmas paper to use as embellishments
Good morning! Laura here today! It is very cold here right now and I am missing the heat of summer! Since it is winter and I can’t actually enjoy the summer right now I did the next best thing and created a summer layout!
To create this layout:
Step 1) Cut your papers, 1 at 12×12, 1 at 10×12 and 1 at 11×12 then ink the edges and assemble Step 2) Die cut 4 circles of varying sizes. I used 5 1/4, 4 1/4, 2 3/4 and 2 1/4 in the stitched circles
Step 3) Die cut one sand castle and one palm tree then ink and assemble
Step 4) Die cut two tags and ink the edges – I used the tag from the planner essentials 7 Step 5 ) Die cut the filmstrip from planner essentials filmstrip

Good morning! I was honored to be asked by Els to create a layout of her granddaughter and her. I will admit, I was slightly nervous to create something for someone else but the photo she provided was so wonderful that it helped design the layout.
To create this layout you will need 2 full sheets of paper (I used ModaScrap Wood Effect paper (the top one) and ModaScap Relax in the Garden. I also used lots of bits and pieces and 1/2 sheets of the relaxing the garden papers. You will also need an edge distresser, brown ink, a few pearls for inside your flowers and of course your wonderful ECD dies.
Step 1 – Trim your top sheet to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 then using a pair of sharp scissors trim a bit of the top sheet in little bit so the bottom sheet will show more then using your distressing tool shred the edges a bit on both papers
Step 3 – Using the smallest shape in the fitted hexagons die set, cut 23 – 25 hexagons. Ink then distress the edges.
Step 4 – Using the Planner Essentials 8 cut one of the large tag and the title and ink and die and ink and distress
Step 5 – Using the stitched circles die cut the second largest circle the ink and distress the edges
Step 6 – Using planner essentials 11 cut one of the tags and 4 of the strips then ink and distress the edges
Step 7 – Cut the top layer of the butterfly flourish and ink the edges
Step 8 – Using the backside of one of the relaxing in garden papers or a piece of off white cardstock die cut 2 leafy branches, then trim them in half so you will now have 4 pieces and ink the edges
Step 9 – Using your left over pieces of paper and your favorite flower dies die cut your flowers – I used, bunch of flowers 3, large flower set, and small flower set. I cut three of each flower and layered each one but you can also just die cut one and leave your flowers flat.
I love to scrap baby photos! The fabulous ModaScrap Blue Cotton Candy is perfect for those little baby boy photos!
Here’s how I created this project:
Step 1 – Trim one patterned paper to 11.5 x 11.5 – ink the edges using brown ink then adhere to a full 12 x 12 sheet of your choice and ink the edge. Step 2 – Trim another patterned paper to 11 x 5 and ink edges. Step 3 – Trim another sheet to 10 1/4 x 3 and ink edges. Step 4 – Trim another sheet to 12 x 1 1/4 and ink edges. Step 5 – Die cut a 4 1/4 circle using soft finish white cardstock and a 3 3/4 stitched circle from patterned paper –– adhere together. Step 6 – Die cut two Valentines Edges from white cardstock . Step 7 – Adhere all the paper like shown.
Step 8 – Adhere your double sided adhesive sheet to your soft finish white cardstock and die cut 3 flowers of your choice, the butterfly body, the circle and the tag from the Love, Life Tag. Then apply blue silk microfine glitter and rub with fingers to bring out the shine. Step 9 – Die cut more flowers to layer using your white cardstock and the pieces of paper left from your trimmings and assemble flowers. Step 10 – Die cut two of the butterfly overlays – one from white cardstock and one from a piece of patterned paper. Step 11 – Die cut one ready to bloom using white cardstock. Step 12 – Die cut one heart tag and one tree overlay using the Love, Life Tag die in white and one in patterned paper. Step 13 – Assemble butterfly, tree, and tag keeping the pieces of hearts from the tree to make the trail for the butterfly.
Step 14 – Using the small circle die, die cut the words from the title sheet of the Blue Cotton Candy paper and the cut out the title piece. Step 15 – Mat photo. Step 16 – Assemble the layout!
