Layout of the Week #119

Feel like scrapping?
Then you're in the right place. 
I have a layout idea that you can complete very quickly.
Today's layout has several pieces of pattern paper, but don't be discouraged.
The steps are rather quick and certainly easy.

Here's the layout we'll be creating.

To make it, you'll need:
one piece of 12"x 12" cardstock
one piece of 8 1/2"x 11" cardstock
one piece of cardstock for the photo mat measuring 5"x 7 1/2" (I used a large index card divider)
one piece of pattern paper measuring 4 1/4"x 11 3/4"
one piece of pattern paper measuring 4 1/4"x 11"
two strips of pattern paper measuring 1"x 5 1/2" and 1"x 4"
3"x 4" card with pre-printed title or letter stickers for the title
small labels for journaling
embellishments in your theme
paper trimmer

To start, place your 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock on the right side of the 12"x 12" cardstock.

Place the pattern paper measuring 4 1/4" x 11 3/4" along the left side of the background cardstock
overlapping the smaller piece of cardstock.

Now adhere the piece of pattern paper measuring 4 1/4"x 11" slightly overlapping the first piece.

Adhere the piece of pattern paper measuring 1"x 5 1/2" along the upper left corner 
of the second piece of pattern paper. 
Place the piece measuring 1"x 4" in the lower right corner about 1" from the bottom
 of the background cardstock.

Now place your cardstock measuring 5"x 7 1/2" about 1 1/2" from the right edge 
of the background paper. This will be your photo mat.
I adhered mine with a strip of decorative tape so that my mat would flip open to give me more room for photos. If you don't need the room, you can adhere the mat right to the background. 

I added one of my embellishments, a mini Bingo card, to the upper right hand corner of the layout.

Add your title to the left side of your mat just under the small strip of pattern paper.
I used a pre-printed title. You could use letter stickers if you prefer.

Now add your photos to the mat.
I used two vertical photos.
You could also use one horizontal photo if you'd rather.
Because my mat flips open, I added more photos behind the mat.

Add your journaling to your labels and stagger them under the photo mat.
Add an embellishment to the edges of each photo.

That's it! Minimal effort for a cute, layered layout.
I hope you like it:)

Please stop by every other Wednesday for a new step-by-step layout tutorial.
If you have any scrapbooking friends, let them know, too.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
