About this page:
When I first saw the Finished In A Flash™ Wild Things Kit I couldn’t wait to use it for a page other than a Zoo theme. The papers and embellishments are so cute that they just screamed “wild family fun” to me. These pages were quick and easy because there was very little cutting involved, and the punch-outs are a real time saver.
The photos and papers for this layout are mirror images of one another, but the embellishments keep the pages from being too “matchy matchy”—something I try to avoid.
Scrapbooking supplies for this layout:
- Wild Things Finished in a Flash™
- Black inkpad
- Foam tape
- X-acto® knife
- White, dark brown and green cardstocks
Instructions for this layout:
For the left page:
- Cut a 2 1/2” wide strip of brown zebra paper and adhere it 1 1/4” from the bottom of the dot paper, keeping the top of the paper strip unglued to slide matted photos behind it.
- Mat a 4”x6” photo on brown cardstock, leaving a 1/8” wide border. Attach it just under the border and flush with the right side of the paper. Mat a 3 5/8”x5 5/8” photo on green cardstock, and attach it slightly overlapping the first photo and under the border.
- Adhere the “wild things” arrow over the top edge of the paper border. Journal on white cardstock, trim, ink the edges and attach below the arrow.
- Secure the paw brads into the circle punch-outs and foam tape to the left of the page as shown. Secure a silver brad to the top of the “Just Monkey’n Around!” tag and foam tape to the corner of the photo.
For the right page:
- Repeat steps one and two from above, but place photos on the left side of the paper.
- Embellish the arrow punch-out with brown mini brads and foam tape to extend into the photo to draw attention to specific subjects. Use foam tape under the other punch-outs to give them added dimension, and attach them to the right side of the page.
- Adhere the elephant Brad Buddy™ with a black mini brad and point it into the photo as if looking at the photo.
- Cut journaling into strips and ink the edges. Glue the strips above the photos and on the border as shown.
