Scrapbooking With Steph | Why Fit In Layout

Dr Seuss is awesome!

Hello and welcome to this week’s blog post…this was another challenge set on my recent retreat.

We were given the title “Why fit in when you were born to stand out” as our inspiration.

When we got these challenges I went straight onto the Silhouette store and typed it into the search bar and of course something wonderful came up….

Cutting The File

So, I loaded this file up onto my design template.

As it was it didn’t leave me enough room for the photo I wanted to use. I highlighted the text and grouped it all together before ungrouping it.

This meant I could then move the words round the page ensuring that there was enough room for the photo I wanted to include.

Once I had shuffled them all around I sent it to cut on flat white bazzill on the heavy card stock setting passing through twice.

Backing The File

I trimmed the page down to 11 ½ inch square and backed it totally with some navy spot paper.

I gutted some gold glitter card (one inch border) and popped the cutfile on to that, I used tape to stick it down but it also needed glossy accents to hold it firm.

Mounting The Photo

I mounted the photo onto flat white Bazill card to give it a crisp boarder.

I popped it onto the middle right side of my layout and slipped some more gold glitter card under it using foam risers to give it a bit of height.

Finishing Touches

I cut out some banners from some scraps of paper I had and stuck them onto the left-hand side of the photo putting foam risers under the ends.

I used some chipboard accents round the photo and made a rosette out of another piece of chipboard and some scraps and stuck that in the top left-hand corner to complete the layout!

Why Fit In When You Were Born To Stand Out

Quick and easy layout!

This was a great stand out layout to make that came together really quickly. It’s also good for using up your little scraps of paper us scrapbookers tend to hoard! Thank you so much for reading….until next time
