How to Make
1. For this
project, I have die cut two cogs from the Santoro’s Willow cogs die set with
card to create a stencil for your paper. I have then placed them on the middle
of the Santoro Willow Cog paper and spritzed them with black mister. Remove the
cogs once they are dry.
2. With the
distressed pink striped paper, cut one strip of paper to 8cm x 1.5cm and
another to 10.5cm x 2.4cm and on each paper cut a fishtail design on one side.
3. Cut the
brown damask paper to 8.5cm x 2.6cm and diagonally cut one corner off to create
a ribbon effect. Cut another piece of paper to 12.5cm x 2.6cm, again cut the
diagonally cut the corner off.
4. With the
brown damask paper, I have then cut the border out to 1.5cm x 12cm strip. With
the pearlescent green floral paper, I have die cut the a large tag from the
First Edition Tag die set and the border die from the Belle and Boo Die set.
the scrapbooking layout sketch, place the die cut paper and strips of paper
accordingly. Stick the papers down once you are happy with the layout.
6. I have then
die cut the largest nesting stamp with the brown polka dot paper and then stuck
a cropped 4” x 4” photo to the centre of the die cut paper. Layer the die cut
paper on the top right of the A4 paper using foam squares.
7. Die cut
four large cogs and two small cogs and spritz them with black mister. Stick two
large cogs and one small cog to the top left of the image. Add the one large
and small cog to the bottom right of the image and tuck the final cog under the
nesting stamp die to give the scrapbook layout further dimension.
8. With the
pearlescent green floral paper I have then die cut the title ‘Far Far Away’
with the First Edition Alphabet Die Set and I have them added them under the
cog stencil with each word under each other with an increased indecent.
9. To balance the
bottom of the A4 layout, I have die cut the smallest tag from the First Edition
tag die set with the pearlescent green paper and a large cog. Spritz the cog
with black mister. Whilst drying, I then have cut the brown polka dot paper to
6.8cm x 2.5cm and cut a fishtail design out of one side. Place the fishtail
design to the bottom right of the page, leaving a 1.3cm space allowance below
it. Tuck the small tag towards the top left and layer the cog on top of the
patterned paper before sticking all the papers down.
