abc 6x6 Layout


Tonight I have a workshop, as I may have mentioned before, and I always start my demonstrations with a 6x6 layout. I keep one for my sample book, and give the other to the hostess. This way she can use this layout to build her page if she wants to use a bigger size layout- like a 12x12 (as I know this particular hostess does.) She has a little girl who will be starting preschool in the fall so I thought it is perfect timing for this one. Plus, this way I got to play with the new Primary Colors Simply Scrappin' Kit. I will be using it a lot for personal use as I have 2 little guys who will be in kindergarten and 3rd grade this year. I used More Mustard for the layout base. I used a piece of the d.p. for the photo mat and layered it on Real Red. FYI- the solid colored cardstock in this particular S.K. is textured. I used my new photo corner punch with another d.p. and lightly attached it to the corners of the photo mat. This way she can peel them back when she adds her picture. I used some of the abc cardstock stickers for the bottom corner. I only attached the photo mat on 3 sides because I wanted the lined paper to be able to be pulled out and used for journaling. I added a jumbo paperclip that I found at Walmart and tied on a few ribbons. I love how this one turned out!
