This week I am using the 'Cut & Paste' papers by My Mind's Eye from the January Being Scrappy Kit. I had a lovely photo of Lee's brother Chris with his new baby son Ralph.
Use the spotty 'Hey You' paper as the base for the layout.
Cut an 8" x 8" piece of the 'Bliss' paper, ink the edges and stick down down in the centre.
Next cut a 11" x 1.5" strip of the 'Smile' paper, ink the edges and stick down just above the bottom of the 'Bliss' piece.
Now cut a 7.5" x 5" piece of the clouds 'Bliss Delight' paper, cut a banner into one end, ink the edges and stick down.
Ink the edges of the journaling card and stick down to the right side of layout.
Attach your 7" x 5" photo.
Cut some strips of the 'Bliss Jovial' paper and use these for your journaling.
Add a title using the Thickers Alpha that comes with the Kit. I used a mini alpha from my own stash as well. I also addes some of the little square crosses from the Thickers Alpha.
Have a look at Niki's blog to see the two layouts she has designed this week. The Being Scrappy January Kit is available here for a limited time.
Thanks for looking!
