Layout Tutorial & Guesting for Freehand Scraps

Hi there! I was invited by Elaine from Freehand Scraps to be Nov Guest Designer. She sent me a beautiful kit called Sweather Weather. This kit is just so pretty!! Perfect for fall, thanksgiving and  everyday theme too :)

So here I am again to show you a simple tutorial on how I created one of my layout. 


I really love this particular paper from Fancy Pants. The frames really attracted my attention. And I also love the back of the patterned paper too. So I came up with a perfect solution - to use them together. 

What I did was to cut the paper almost into half. The back of the paper (green) I turned it to the front and voila - you can have the best of both paper :) Layered it with a kraft cardstock. In the middle, I "joined" it with a strip of border punch. 

Next, you'll need to stick the shown sticker onto a transparency, cut the outline. The reason why I used a transparency because it's clear and I wanted to cut the sticker into half. You can always opt for paper. 

Cut these 2 brackets from the cards paper.

Ta daa... here's the completed layout...
From this layout, you can clearly see how I assembled all the papers & embellishments together. 

Close-up shots: 
I used the Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Text as part of my journaling. To raise the tiny text, I adhered foam dots.

I seriously adore the wood ruler and also the crochet flower. The button by Epiphany Craft is so cute!

Hope you enjoy this tutorial & have an awesome day! Will reveal the rest of my creations soon :)
Xoxo Jessy
