Build-A-Layout Tutorial

Hey crafty people!! One of our local online store, Scrappin Studio carries Studio Calico kits. I am so thankful that we can finally have it here in our country! Today, I am going to show you a tutorial on building a layout that I created for Scrappin Studio using the SC March "Into The Woods" kit.

First, using your circle punch... punch circles out of the selected patterned papers.

Lay & paste out all the punched circles onto the kraft cardstock. There's a reason why I chose circles because I want them to represent big buttons to match the title... scroll down & you'll see :)

Use a baby wipe/wet tissue to dip into the gesso...

... and spread it across the layout.

Yup...you'll get a white-washed background.

Paste the fabRips on and pinch to create texture.
Tip: You need to cut the fabRips length slightly longer.

Take out the nozzle from the mist bottle and drop some on all over the layout.

To create the flower, you need to do the first loop with the ribbon (Mossy Knoll kit)...

... and continue to loop in every direction.

Paste the Glitz vintage ticket (Mossy Knoll kit) on the FabRips.

Embellish the rest with photos, ribbon flower with MM metal flower brad and stickers!

Ta daa.... here's the completed layout:

I couldn't resist to use Em's girl's photo again! She is just too cute! Yes, cute as button! Do the circles at the background reflect big buttons? Hope they do! Lol.

Close up shots:

Hope you'll try it out but for now remember to get a yourself a March "Into The Woods" kit!! Most importantly enjoy the process of creating!

BTW, if you interested to subscribe thru Scrappin Studio. Good news, they ship kits/products all around. And now we have special promotion just for you! Remember to mention my name cause I get brownie points *wink*! TQ
