I did a quick video on how I created the layout above. I did a few of the elements before the video just to shorten the video. So I will briefly explain them here so you are aware of what I did.
I started out with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. I then trimmed my American Crafts’-Amy Tangerine line of paper down so it is now 11 1/2×11 1/2. To adhere my patterned paper to the cardstock, as well as to mat the photo and place it on the page, I used my E-Z Runner® .
I quickly stitched around the edge with my sewing machine just for a different look.
Now you are ready to watch my video. Enjoy! The whole layout took me around 20 min to complete, the video is around 3 min.
