Layouts With Pizazz


Family Photos

By LeNae Gerig

Supplies:

Instructions:
For the Left Page:

  1. Use the light brown textured paper as the background. Cut a 5 1/2"x7 1/2" piece of purple stripe paper with the stripes running vertically. Glue the striped paper even with the bottom edge of the page, 1/2" from the left edge. Ink the edges of an 8"x2" strip of brown polka dot paper and glue across the page, 1" from the bottom edge.
  2. Ink the edges of a vertical photo and let dry. Glue the “harmony” tab behind the bottom left edge of the photo, then glue the photo centered over the purple stripe paper, overlapping the brown polka dot paper. Use Glue Dots™ to attach a large brown silk flower overlapping the top right corner of the photo. Stamp the year onto the small purple tag and punch a hole in the tab. Run a length of ivory embroidery floss through the hole and knot the ends together to form a loop. Lay part of the embroidery floss loop in the center of the flower. Cut out the circular “family” artwork and add foam tape to the back. Secure the artwork in the center of the flower with the embroidery floss loop under it, then secure the tag in place on the page with foam tape.
  3. Cut out and fold the file folder, then glue the back side of the folder at an angle to the right of the photo. Computer journal onto ivory textured paper and crop to a small rectangle. Tear along the top edge of the journaling, ink the torn edge and glue to the right of the photo with the bottom edge tucked into the file folder. Run a length of ivory embroidery floss through the holes on one small brown button and knot the ends on the back. Use a Glue Dot™ to secure the button in the top right corner of the journaling. Knot a 3" length of brown grosgrain ribbon and use a Glue Dot™ to secure the knot over the right side of the striped portion on the front of the file folder. Use foam tape to add an alphabet tile monogram at an angle to the left of the knotted ribbon.

For the Right Page:

  1. Use the purple textured paper as the background. Ink the edges of an 8"x6" piece of brown polka dot paper and glue centered across the background. Cut an 8"x2 1/2" strip of purple stripe paper with the stripes running horizontally, then glue centered across the brown polka dot paper.  Ink the edges of a vertical photo and let dry. Glue the photo 1 1/4" from the top edge and 1/2" from the right edge of the page. Glue the “picture perfect” tab over the top right edge of the photo.
  2. Cut out alphabet tiles to spell the name and add brown mini brads to the tops of any tag-shaped tiles. Alternate between glue stick and foam tape to attach the tiles at varying angles to the left of the photo, overlapping the seam between the top edge of the purple stripe paper and brown polka dot paper. Stamp the word “is” onto the small ivory tag and punch a hole in the tab. Run a length of embroidery floss through the hole and knot the ends together to form a loop. Use a Glue Dot™ to secure the knot over one of the alphabet tiles, then glue the tag at an angle in place on the page. Add a number tile overlapping the tag to represent the age.
  3. Use Glue Dots™ to attach a small brown silk flower overlapping the bottom edge of the purple stripe paper and the brown polka dot paper. Run a length of ivory embroidery floss through the holes on one medium button and knot the loose ends on the back. Use a Glue Dot™ to secure the button in the center of the flower.

A tip from LeNae:
Like the look of buttons but don’t want to break out a needle and thread to sew them onto your projects? Believe it or not, you can still get the look of a stitched button without the needle. Try Glue Dots™! Just run a length of thread or embroidery floss through the holes on your button, then tie the loose ends together on the backside of the button. After that, just apply a Glue Dot™ to the back of the button and secure the button anywhere on your project! Another tip? Rather than thread or embroidery floss, you can also run a thin strip of paper through the buttonholes. You won’t have to worry about running to the store for thread that perfectly matches your project–any coordinating paper will do the trick!
