Summer Girl
By Shauna Berglund-Immel


Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Use the warm color block paper as the background. Mat the photo on lime texture paper and trim the mat to 1/16”. Mat again on black glimmer paper and trim the mat to 1/8”. Mat again on orange swirls paper and trim the mat to 1/2”. Mat again on black glimmer paper and trim the mat to 1/16”. Center the photo on the large color blocked portion of the background paper and adhere using a glue stick.
  2. Place a 3/16” pink eyelet in the bottom right corner of the photo. Cut a 3” strip of black and ivory gingham ribbon and thread it through the eyelet, securing it on the back of the photo mat. Cut a 5” strip of black and ivory gingham ribbon and run it vertically down the top left corner of the page on top of the green diamonds color blocked portion of the background paper. Wrap one end of the ribbon around the top edge of the paper and secure the ribbon on the back.
  3. Cut out the tags from the artwork and add tape-style ABC stickers to the tags representing the year and age. Accent the ABC stickers with yellow and orange decorating chalk. Add an orange mini brad to the top of each tag. Using foam mounting tape, attach the tag cut-outs just below the black and ivory gingham ribbon strips as shown. Cut two strips of black and ivory gingham ribbon and tie each into a shoestring bow. Using Glue Dots™, attach one shoestring bow at the top of each tag, overlapping the ribbon strip.
  4. Add two tape-style ABC stickers to the top right corner of the photo representing the initials, then accent the stickers with orange and yellow chalk. Cut a strip of black and ivory gingham ribbon and tie a knot in the center. Attach it in the top right corner of the page using a Glue Dot™.
  5. Using a black pen, write the name just under the year tag. Computer journal onto white paper, then crop and mat the journaling onto black glimmer paper, trimming the mat to 1/16”. Using a glue stick, glue the journaling under the name and accent the title with orange and yellow chalk.

A Tip From Shauna:

A color blocked background paper is perfect for the busy scrapper—just use the blocks as designators for photos, journaling and embellishments. Don’t be afraid to leave some areas of your layout empty. In this “Summer Girl” layout, I let the patterned border at the bottom of the page remain empty except for the small tag dangling on the right side.
