Single Layout - step by step instructions by Ingeborg ..... 'Meeting Vicki'

Here is Ingeborg's first step by step, hope you enjoy!.....

Materials used:

· Coredinations Cardstock

· WeR Memory Keepers double-sided cardstock MVP – Jordan

· Buttons

· Black Foam Alphabet Stickers

· AdornIt by Carolees Creations Alphabet Stickers Sleek Red

· Hero Arts Journaling Stamp

· Stampers Anonymous Spills & Splatters Stamp

· Green Tara Mesh Ribbon Red

· Black Pearl Beaded Trim 3 mm

· Embroidery Thread red


· I wanted to create a so called ‘budget layout’ without too many materials.

· The sheet of double-sided cardstock is going to be first thing to work with.

· I first cut a 1 ½ inch x 12 inch strip from the top (making sure I cut across the paper to get a little piece of all the lines).

· I turned the paper over and cut the paper in four pieces.

· The square piece with ‘MVP’ is put aside for a card I will be making later.

· The piece with the little flags is also put aside for another card.

· I only use the square with the numbers and the rectangle with the smaller lines.

· I inked the edges of the red cardstock and I used the ‘spills& spatters’ stamp to distress the background a little bit.

· I used an edge distresser and ink to distress the edges of my papers and photo.

· I put the long strip with the strips to the right and the other two pieces of patterned paper across the page (see photo)

· I placed the photo on top of the papers (see photo).

· I placed the mesh ribbon on top of the photo.

· I used a small round plate and placed it on top of my photo.

· I randomly placed 18 buttons around it to create a frame.

· I added my title using two different alphabet stickers. I outlined the red stickers with black pen to make them stand out more.

· I added the black pearl trim to the left.

· I created a little flower out of the pearl trim. I used red embroidery thread to make it visible where I put the knots. Normally I would use the colour of the trim J !

· I added a little asterisk and pearl in the centre of the flower to ‘hide’ my knots.

· I placed the flower on the layout.

· I used a journaling stamp and wrote my journaling. Done!

thanks for looking
luv tanXx

Woohoo ... one of my scrapping 'heroes' (a.k.a. Vicki Boutin left a comment here!) Thanks for the compliments, Vicki ... I adore your work and would love to meet you again one day ... But your hometown in Canada is a bit far away from both Europe and Australia, isn't it?
