Scrapbook Layout How-To

Design by Kelly Goree

Scrapbooking Supplies
photo: vertical 5-1/4x6"
cardstock: tan, brown
paper: two patterns
other: brown and black ink pads; journaling stamp; black and white fine-tip pens; orange chipboard letters; metal label holder; two green photo corners

Step-by-Step Instructions
1. Ink the edges of a 7-1/2x8-1/2" piece of patterned paper and a 9x6-1/2" rectangle of tan cardstock with brown ink. Stamp journaling lines and handwrite your journaling. Color the edges of the photo with black ink. Mount the inked pieces on a 12x12" sheet of brown cardstock as shown.

2. For the title, combine orange chipboard letters and your handwriting. Kelly outlined the chipboard letters in black and framed the last word with a label holder.

3. Cut thin strips from the second patterned paper and use them to partially frame the tan cardstock. Kelly highlighted a portion of the photo with a circle hand-cut from patterned paper.

4. Attach photo corners on the left side of the page. Draw white dots around the page and on the photo corner for visual interest. Write the date in the lower right corner for a finishing touch.
