Layout of the Week #99

I'm excited to show you today's Layout of the Week.
The steps are simple enough for any skill level.
Just follow along, and you'll complete this layout in under an hour.
This is the layout we're making.
Yours will look slightly different as you'll be using supplies you have on hand.

To create it, you'll need:
one piece of 12"x 12" pattern paper
one piece of 3"x 4" pattern paper
2-3 journaling cards
1-2 pieces of decorative tape
stickers in your theme
7 photos
paper trimmer

Place the 3"x 4" pattern paper in the upper left corner of the 12"x 12" pattern paper.
Optional: Place a journaling card or second piece of pattern paper overlapping the first one.

Adhere two vertical photos slightly overlapping near the center of the page.
I trimmed a little off the sides of my photos.

Crop the rest of your photos so that they will be able to fit in the space around the first two photos.
You don't have to be precise with these measurements. You just need to trim them enough to fit.
Place two along the left edge of the pattern paper, then place a third below the two large photos.
All my smaller photos slightly overlap the larger photos.

Now place one photo near the upper right corner.
Adhere two journaling cards along the outer edge of the rest of the photos.
I used one of my journaling cards to write my title which I added with stamps.
If you'd rather, you could use pattern paper in place of the journaling cards.

Add the last photo beneath the journaling cards.

Using your stickers, add them here and there around the photos.
I also added two strips of decorative tape in the upper right corner and lower left corner of the layout.

To finish it off, add some notes to your journaling card.
Feel free to add a few more stickers- I added one to nearly every photo.
See how easy this was?
By adding a little color around the photos, you don't have to put too much work into a layout
and still achieve a layered look.
Stop by every other Wednesday for a new start-to-finish layout tutorial.
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
 To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under heaven
