·         SCAP COLLECTIONS ® LOVE AND WHIMSY  (1 of each 001, 002 and 003)
·         2 x grey cardstock
·         1 x pink cardstock
·         RM Designs matching diecut hearts, frame, title and birds

·         2 x Love and Whimsy 001 at 26cm x 15cm each
·         2 x Love and Whimsy 002 at 26cm x 10cm each

  Create your Chevron Strip:
   Use 2 scraps of paper measuring 4cm x 30.5cm to stick your finished chevrons onto BEFORE you place onto your layout.  Lay next to each other to form a long 61cm strip to go over both pages. 

Cut through when you are finished your layout.
 Cut 17 strips of Love and Whimsy 002 measuring 3cm x 8cm wide

   Cut 17 strips of Love and Whimsy 003 measuring 3cm x 8cm wide

Line them up at 90 degrees with each other and cut through the middle (throw away small triangles) and alternate with next piece and cut through as per example above.
Adhere a row of 002 along top of your strip and the row of 003 along the bottom.

Once these are all stuck down you can now adhere this strip into the open gap between your pattern papers.

Layout Placement:
·         Mat a jumbo photo on Pink Cardstock and adhere to top left corner. (raise with foamcore if you wish)
·         Add  a portrait jumbo next to this along top of layout (tuck into your chevron at bottom )
·         Adhere 3 jumbo landscape photos along the bottom of layout, also tucked into your chevrons, you can cut them shorter by 2cm.
·         Mat another Jumbo photo onto Pink Cardstock and adhere to top right corner.
·         To the left of this place another portrait jumbo photo tucked into your chevrons.
·         Finish off layout with your Heart frame around your main photo and your extra hearts, titles and birds placed as per example.
·         I included a small quote printed on my left over pink cardstock to the Chevron strip.

FLORAL TRESSEL class instructions

Layout designed by Michelle van Wyk

·         2 x pink cardstock
·         1 x teal cardstock
·         Black RM Designs Swirl
·         Black lettering
·         Pink Half Pearls
Cut your papers as follows and adhere to background Pink Cardstock  (NB:  001 – KEEP your huge flower for your flower cluster)

Left page:
Sand your 3 photos ( measuring 8cm x 15cm) and tape to Teal Cardstock.  Ink edges in Black.  Stick to left page as per example.
Print your quote .. “If I had a flower,” onto pink cardstock and place as per example below your first photo.  Use a scrap of teal cardstock 10cm x 2cm and scallop one end.  Adhere this to bottom of your top left photo over your quote. Add a row of half pearls to the scallops.
Arrange your big cluster of flowers (cut out of paper 001 and 004- keep some leaves too) to top right of page. (Use the HUGE flower from 001 paper at the very bottom of your cluster)   Use pop dots to raise some elements and add your black swirl and some pink half pearls to your flowers.  Print your quote “Just living” on teal paper and adhere to big flower.
Add title of choice above this cluster.

·       Right page:
·         To the right of this, adhere another FLAP booklet.  Cut your teal cardstock to 10cm x 15cm and 10cm x 13cm.  Your booklet has 2 pages.  Score at 1cm along left edge (10cm is your height).  Add some scraps of 001 to front page and to the second page along right edge.  Add your photo to front 11cm x 9cm photo and add a row of pink half pearls down the spine of your booklet.  Insert photos or journaling onto your remaining pages.
·         Mat another Jumbo photo (cut to 9cm x 15cm) onto remaining 006 paper) and adhere to bottom left corner.
·         Mat final photo cut to 8cm wide x 10cm deep onto remaining pink pattern paper and adhere below top right flap.
·         Now create your final cluster of flowers using your quote “Life is a...” (printed on teal paper) to the top of it.  Add your remaining black swirls and half pearls to your flowers.
I finished layout with a small broken corner (4.5cm square) cut out of teal paper into bottom right of page (and also to top left of title on left page)
