August Class Layout

As usual I am more than happy for anyone to use the following instructions for their personal use but please do not copy them (either to teach your own classes or to post elsewhere online) without permission.
Thank you :)

And tonight we were scrapping our photos from last month.


1 sheet dark brown cardstock
3 co-ordinating patterned papers (the ones in the example are by EKSuccess)
Chipboard letters
Acrylic paint
Dark Brown or Charcoal chalk ink
Blue embroidery thread


Paint pre-cut chipboard title (Cuttlebug Olivia font)
using acrylic paint. Leave to one side to dry.


Crop 3 photos to size
(mine are 5” x 3 ½” and 3 ½” x 3 ½”)

Cut a strip of the striped paper approx 1 ½ “ wide.

The length of this should equal the height of your two photos. (eg 1 ½”wide x 7 ¼”high)

Cut dotty paper to fit between top photo and edge of LO (eg 4 ¾” wide x 2 ½” high)

Cut flowery paper to fit between lower two photos and edge of LO (eg 2 ¾”wide x 3 ½”high)

Dry brush edges of all photos and paper with acrylic paint and attach to layout.


Using a piercing bug make a row of holes round the OUTSIDE edges of the patterned paper

Sew a zig-zag stitch round the edges using embroidery thread. Secure the end of the thread on the back of the layout using double sided tape.


Write or print journaling on six strips of orange paper, ink edges with black ink and attach to LO.

Attach title.
