Layout of the Week #94

I sure wish that I had more time to scrapbook.
Unfortunately, with everything else going on around here, I don't get to do it very often.
So it sure is a good feeling when I get a layout done.
Know what I mean?
If you have an hour on your hands and would like to whip up a quick scrapbook page, you're in the right place! Just follow these steps and you'll complete this layout before you know it.
Here's the layout we'll be making.

To create it, you'll need:
one piece of 12"x 12" pattern paper
one piece of 8 1/2"x 10 1/2" pattern paper
two 1"x 12" sticker strips or strips of pattern paper
letter stickers for the title
decorative tape (I used masking tape)
8 embellishments of different sizes
paper trimmer

To start, adhere the smaller piece of pattern paper to the larger one along the bottom leaving equal amounts of space on the left and right sides.

Now, place a 4"x 6" photo about 1" from the top of the smaller paper.

Place two of your larger embellishments below the right corner of the photo.
Trim your sticker strip or 1" paper strip to act as a photo mat.
I cut mine into four strips to go around the photo.
The bottom strip should slightly overlap the two embellishments.

Using your letter stickers, place your title overlapping your two embellishments.

Trim a photo to 2 1/2"x 4 1/2".
Place it below the lower left corner of the first photo.

Place one strip of decorative tape along the top left corner of the smaller pattern paper.
Place two more strips overlapping the bottom right corner.
I placed two embellishments (file tabs) along the edges of my tape.

Place one more embellishment along the bottom strips of tape
and one overlapping the top strip of tape.
Place two embellishments at the bottom right corner of the larger photo
and one more below the title. 

Write your journaling below the lower photo.
That's it!
How do you like that?
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Show us your mercy, Lord, and grant us your salvation.
Psalm 85:7
