Starting with page 1, a strip of green design paper with swirls is placed on the left side of the page. Three 3x3 squares are glued on top, but while the two twilight blue squares are flat, the middle pink one is a little package of surprises. I fist adhered the ribbon to the folded pink bundle, then I adhered the whole stack including the ribbon on the back to page with some strong adhesive.
All other pieces are adhered as shown. Start with the green cardstock, followed by the pink and design paper square. Place the pink bracket slightly under the square and your photo.
Place your gray cardstock base right next to the finished first page. Make sure top and bottom edges are lining up. Now start with the green cardstock strip and adhere it to the base. Make sure it is at the same high as the one on page one. Continue to adhere all other pieces as show. Use your photos or a piece of paper cut to the right size that will fill in for the photo. This way you make sure the squares and strips on the side are all lining up.
This layout also comes in a set, pre-cut, all embellishments included and with instructions and a sketch for future project. You can change all elements with in the pages or flip them to the other side if you like. Check the "boys" layout that is coming up in the next few days and see if you can detect similarities to this one.
This is the little surprise that lays behind the pink bow.
It is a strip of paper scored every 3" to create an accordion-fold of 3"x3". On the right you see how the little book is adhered and how it opens. The left shows you the closed position.
A couple of embellishments lighten up the layout. Decorate and add to it as desired.
All you can see here comes with the layout.
To be able to open the little booklet without pulling the page out of the protector each time I cut a square out of the protector. Now you can open and close the booklet while browsing through your scrapbook.
Detailed instructions on how to make the opening and what to look out for is on the instruction sheet that comes with the set or contact me for more information.
I have only 3 more sets of this layout available, so let me know if you would like to purchase one....
