It’s definitely the month for “Love.” I had to create a fun Love layout using pics of my little Loves. I used some great products to pull this layout together, but I have to tell you the most enjoyable aspects of the layout were the use of effortless adhesive products by Xyron. I used my Xyron Creatopia Machine to apply edge to edge adhesive to my 12 x12 patterned paper and my scalloped paper. I also used Xyron’s adhesive dots, the Teresa Collins Mega Runner and 1” Sticker Maker. The scalloped page was created using my We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Floral Burst punch.
My tutorial for this layout is shown below.
India ink (Brown)
Vintage Photo distress ink
Big brush marker (Brown)
Step One: Age all paper layers, flowers and photos with Vintage Photo ink using foam tool.
Step Two: Randomly apply India ink to scalloped patterned paper. Let dry.
Step Three: Apply brown big brush marker to a small piece of drywall tape and stamp the ink onto the scalloped patterned paper transferring the pattern of the drywall tape. Randomly apply the pattern.
Step Four: Apply thin strips of patterned paper to scalloped paper using 1” Xyron Sticker Maker.
Step Five: Insert patterned papers into the Creatopia machine to give the papers an edge to edge application of adhesive.
Step Six: Remove film from adhesive sheet. Gently release patterned paper from adhesive backing and layer papers together.
Step Seven: Adhere photos to layout using Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron.
Step Eight: Add Butterflies and Flowers using Adhesive Dots by Xyron.
Step Nine: Add ribbon. Continue embellishing as desired.
