Layout Step-by Step Class by Skye Johnson

This layout class is awesome and thank you so much skye! your work is wonderful!

Material Needed:
  • 4x coordinating papers either patterned or cardstock, your choice
  • 1 x Raw chipboard or brown Cardstock
  • 30cm String/Ribbon
  • 20cm Coordinating Ribbon/Ric Rac
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  • Ink
  • Scissors/Craft Knife
  • Double sided Tape
  • 3D foam tape/squares

The tree
Step 1

Using your pencil, draw a freehand tree on your raw chipboard or brown cardstock. Mine is about 11 inches hight and about 4 inches wide. I encourage freehand drawing but if you are not comfortable with this and need a template just contact me and I'll send one across.

Step 2
Cut your tree trunk out and sand and ink all of your edges. I perfer black ink as it works with most colour schemes.

Step 3
Set aside one of your papers/carstock for a backing page. using the remaining three papers, draw(in pencil!) and cut out the following circles.
  • Paper A. 1 x 8cm Circle, 1 x 6.5cm Circle
  • Paper B. 1x6.5cm Circle
  • Paper C. 1x6.5cm Circle, 1 x 5cm Circle
  • Mark these A, B and C on the back, so you can refer to them later. Ink all edges. Layer circles C on top of Circles A with 3D foam mounting tape/squares.
Step 4
Using scraps of papers A and C draw two scallop strips approximately 12cm long one with slightly larger scallops than the other. Sand and ink all edges and layer with double sided tape.

Step 5.
Cut several small leaf shapes from the remaining scraps of papers A and B - sand and ink all edges

Step 6
Position all elements on your page with your photo before sticking down. Move things around until you find a set up that you like - you might like your leaves in different places to where I have put mine - or your scallop along the bottom of the photo - it is up to you really!

Step 7
Stick all elements down with double sided tape.

So many people are afraid to draw a freehand boarder, so why not try it with a ruler first?

  1. Using your ruler measure a boarder ( I have 1 ink to either side) - Draw a single ruled line across the top and down either side.
  2. Put your ruler to the side and freehand draw over these lines several times
  3. Tie a small bow in one end of your larger length of string/ribbon. and position this accross the bottom of your page to complete your border
  4. Position your smaller length of ribbon underneath
Add your journaling to the side by ruling lines 1cm apart - go over these in pen once you are sure they are straight!

And that's pretty much it!
This layout is pretty much about how you want it to look! There are no rules with freehand, and you will always end up with something unique that is different to what everyone else has created.

Be confident in your drawing! There is no right or wrong way to do this and it is supposed to be fun!

Remember, you can always erase pencil lines and start again!

Have fun and happy scrapping!

Thanks again skye for a fantastic class!

Brads & Foil....!!!!

This is really cool!.... I loved how this one turned out!


  • Cover your brad with double sided tape
  • Take off the backing of the double sided tape
  • Any left over bits fold onto the brad
  • This will make the brad a bit lumby & have some shape.

Step 2

  • Place the shiny side of foil down onto the brad


  • Rub the foil onto the brad


  • Carefully take off the foil
and you have a beautiful lumpy foiled brad

Alfoil and Opals

Here is a fun easy technique to add texture and interest.


  • Find a Shape/ alpha you would like to alter


  • Find your versamark ink
  • Ink the entire shape
  • Till it looks wet


  • When shape is wet
  • completely cover with Opal embossing powder


  • Shack off excess
  • Place back into container
  • Till it looks like this


  • Heat your powder
  • When the powder is melted/hot
  • Sprinkle more powder on top
  • Re heat
  • You may want to do this a few times


  • Find some crystal glitter and have it ready
  • If your powder has cooled and dried reheat
  • When the powder is hot and melted sprinkle your glitter over the top


  • Till it looks like this


Find some alfoil
Scrunch it up
Try and make it about the same size as your shape


  • Heat your shape again if it is cooled/hard
  • When the powder is melted
  • Quickly place the alfoil on top of the shape
  • Leave the foil until the shape has cooled
  • Once it is cooled take alfoil off
  • Some floil will stay on their which is what you want!


  • I have reheated the middle and added another colour
  • If your not happy with the foil on their or the texture not being enough or too much you can reheat and start again!

Check out our range of opals in our shop ... Scrap N Craft with T... HERE!

Hope you have enjoyed this one!
happy creating
