Easy step by step layout photos and an easy way to alter your Project Life cards: PUNCHES. Yes, I used a new "Rhombus" punch by EK Success to quickly create all the diamond shapes for this layout.
STEP 1: PUNCH LOTS OF YOUR DESIRED SHAPE OUT OF COORDINATING PAPER
I used Maggie Holmes: Confetti line, Project Life Mini Kit by Maggie Holmes: Maggie Holmes Edition, New Project Life Value Kit by Heidi Swapp: September Skies, Studio Calico Odyssey PL kit from March 2015, American Crafts DIY shop:Gold Dots Vellum, and Studio Calico March add-on Paper pad, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, and Amy Tangerine: Rise and Shine papers
STEP 2: PLACE ON YOUR BACKGROUND PAPER UNTIL YOU HAVE ENOUGH TO COVER THE DESIRED AREA.
Here I am adding texture by using a Studio Calico Screen Print Screen and pink paint.
I used a tiny amount of glue in the CENTER ONLY of the diamonds, then stitched with sewing machine so I could lift up the top and bottom edges of each diamond to create more texture on the page.
STEP 3: LEAVE A SPACE FOR YOUR DESIRED PHOTOS TO GO
STEP 4: CUT PAPER TO GO BEHIND YOUR PHOTOS
Here I used a Studio Calico paper from the March PL kit add-on and Amy Tangerine:Rise and Shine woodgrain paper.
STEP 5: EMBELLISH WITH YOUR CHOICE OF MIST, DIE CUTS, SEQUINS, CHIPBOARD, OR ANY EMBELLISHMENTS YOU LIKE.
Here I have the finished layout after Heidi Swapp Color Shine and washi tape and Title from Studio Calico Class taught by Wilna Furstenberg and Heidi Swapp PL Value kit September Skies die cuts and Maggie Holmes sequin pack.
