Here is a layout I did for Graphic 45. I love Graphic 45 papers and the way you can mix up collections and the colours still work. I like this kind of challenge when I scrapbook . This layout is one I have done for Josh, who travelled with me to the States this year. We had a great time at Disney land, where it is true that “magic still happens”. I have chosen papers from “play times past”, “Tropical Travelogue”, “On the Boardwalk”, “communiqué”, “Primer “and “ le Cirque”. Every time I do this then teach the class, my students always say “I would never put those papers together”. That’s what’s great about Graphic 45, the different collections always work together. I have done a tutorial for you if you want to have a go.
Cut your black cardstock to10 ¾ x 10 ¾ inches. Keep the scraps as you will need it to back your 5 cent boarders.
Cut your Tiki Voyager to 10 inches by 10 inches
Adhered your black cardstock onto your I think I can, Making sure you have the same amount of I think I can all the way around. Adhered your Tiki Voyager to the middle of your black cardstock.
Cut the 5 cent board from by the beautiful sea. Adhered them onto the left over bits of your black cardstock so that you have a bit of black each side of them. Do all four pieces and put foam squares on the back quite close together. Add them to your page with a bit of the black cardstock showing on the outside, this will create a frame around your page. You will need to trim them back so they fit. Don’t put any foam in the corners just yet, as you will need to glue your corners on and push a brad through them. Once you have done that you can add a foam square to the corners. My frame measures about 10 ½ x 10 ½ inches.
Cut a piece of On the Dot to 5 inches by 8 ½ inches and adhered it to your page inside the frame near the bottom. Cut a piece of Le Cirque to 4 inches x 5 inches and adhered it to your page near the top left corner as shown above. Add a photo corner to the top left corner of Le Cirque.
Insert photo 0059
Cut a piece of On the Dot with the stripes horizontal 3 inches x 4 inches. Adhered it to your page as shown above. Add your photo’s, mine are 4 inches x 5 inches and I matted them in black cardstock. Add two piece of film strip and use brads to hold them in place.
For my title, I used one from Imaginarium Designs. I inked with an olive green ink. Once it was dry I outlined it with Platinum glitter. I used some small alphas and inked them with French blue and lightly touched them with a black ink pad. Once they were dry, I used Glossy Accents over the top. Once they were dry I glued them on top of the title “Magic”.
To finish the page, I inked a Imaginarium Designs fence with French blue and again lightly inked it with a black ink pad. I waited for it to dry and added some glossy accents, only on the upright palings. On the rails in between I used Platinum glitter and did little dots. I added a square from Building Blocks, I used the letter J for Josh. I used it to add my journaling and chipboard numbers which I inked black.
