Friday Layout

Welcome to all my scrappy and crafty friends today. Thank you for stopping by. Barbara here and I am going to show you a fairly simple Layout that looks more complex than it really is.

My Tip - try your pp layout without glue first to make sure your embellishments will fit where you want them. Try to make a visual triangle on your page to draw the eye over all parts of the layout.

Here is my completed layout for today:

four pieces of coordinating patterned paper
one piece of solid coordinating cardstock
Three photos
journaling card

Pick one piece of patterned to be your base.
I cut the floral paper to 1 x 12
I cut the black print to 5 x 12
I cut the diagonal stripe to 1 x 8
and I cut the solid gray to 8 x 10

Place the gray cardstock to the left side of your pp base. If your diagonal stripe paper is like mine and slants toward the middle be sure to cut equal amounts from each side so the center will still be the center. Place the diagonal stripe paper above the gray cardstock. Place the black pp slightly lower than the center. Try it out with your journaling card to make sure you have room for it in the bottom right corner.
I used a premade frame to draw attention to the center photo. I used bling to make a visual triangle to help the eye travel over the page. And I used an embellishment from the pack I took from my friend in the white elephant game to finish telling the story.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope this inspires you to scrap a page of your own today.
As always questions and comments are welcome.
Hope you have a scrapbook blessings kind of day.
Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by, Barbara

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
