June's Project, Step by Step


1. Adhere the three 4x6 photos in a straight line, leaving a little more than an inch border to the side.


2. Cut a strip of one of the patterned papers, about an inch wide. Adhere it flush to the photos, leaving a bit of the background cardstock visible at the far edge of the page.


3. Cut a narrow strip of the second patterned paper. Optional: use a border punch on this piece.


4. Adhere the narrow strip on top of the first patterned paper, again flush with the row of photos.


5. Look through all the die-cut shapes you have selected and pull out the largest shape you would like to use.


6. Mat that shape with the first patterned paper.


7. Select two smaller die-cuts that when placed side by side are roughly the same width as the large matted die-cut. Adhere these three to the layout, on the opposite side of the photos from the border, near the bottom of the page. Aim to keep a bit of cardstock visible all along the far edge here, just like on the opposite side.


8. Select a die-cut with a more irregular shape - a flower, heart or starburst for example, rather than a square. Add pop dots or foam tape to half the design and regular flat adhesive to the other half.


9. Tuck the flat side under the large die-cut, to create a slightly curled effect.


10. Select a smaller die-cut that will layer on top of this shape, and attach with another pop dot.

11. Now take this arrangement of die-cuts and work up the page, so select something that is taller than it is wide and attach that, tucking the edges under or over other elements.


12. Use the washi tape, ribbon or baker's twine in three places on the page: once in the far corner of the photos...


13. ...and once either side within the embellishment area.


14. Select smaller shapes to adhere on top of the tape (or ribbon or twine), with pop dots.


15. It's okay if the smaller die-cuts seem a bit random. We're aiming for a good match in colour and size. As long as they don't completely contradict the theme of your page, they will probably work!


16. If there is something you want to include but the size isn't of the right proportion for your layout, remember you can always make a piece smaller with scissors, punches or dies.


17. And that way two seemingly random things can be less random when a motif is repeated, like the two birds here. But that repetition isn't a requirement - just useful if you spot a good match in your stash.


18. Add the title with the letter stickers.


19. If the font is very bold and easy to read, you can scatter the title throughout your die-cut collage. Fancier fonts or more complicated title wordings won't work this way - you will need to bring the words closer together to keep them legible.


20. Complete the page with your writing and use the smaller letter stickers for names, dates or smaller words in your title. (Confession: I planned to use the small letter stickers for my date and I'm missing a few key letters and numbers for that! So I've written it by hand this time which means the little letters I put in my kit didn't make it to the page. Sad times, I know.)

Love how the page looks so pulled together yet uses very little patterned paper! Keeping my fingers crossed my shift at work tonight is short so I can come home and get started!

As I don't generally do die cuts this was a bit of a challenge but good for using up odds and ends of stash - I think the flocked alpha dates from 2007!

Here is what I started with, and then what I moved on to. Yellow came from the first set of photos (writing on the rubber ring) 'cos when I tried aqua/blue it was too much with the sea

I keep going back and sticking more bits on, not sure I've got the hang of clustering!
