Here’s a Mod layout I created with Christmas pictures from last year 🙂 I was farrrrrr too preggo to get any scrapbooking done! This layout uses some fun new Basic Grey Nordic Holiday Dies- Bookplate, Tags, and Happy Holiday dies. Here’s a screenshot:
Here’s a tutorial on how I created my mod layout!
I always start off by positioning all the elements once they’ve been die-cut and trimmed. I used a corner rounder to round of one corner of each of the photos and the Happy Holiday. I did this to match the Basic Grey paper lace!
The Happy Holiday Sizzlit (cutting platform, cutting plate, sizzlit die, paper, cutting plate)
The Bookplate and Tags Die (cutting plate, paper, cutting plate)
Then, I added white contrasting cardstock to the back of the Happy Holiday to add more dimension.
Using the Sizzix eClips and eCAL, cut out little inverted squares smaller than the inverted squares on the Basic Grey paper lace. I used Bazzill smoothies cardstock on the default cutting settings.
Now, you can use foam dimensionals to adhere the die-cut inverted squares to the center of each inverted square on the white paper lace. I love the 3L 3D foam squares because they’re less fussy than most.
Die-cut the Bookplates & Tags twice using patterned paper and an overlay for some layered dimension! I added little bows to mine at the top to create an ornament effect! Adhere finished elements on top of the finished paper lace.
Arranging the elements using the rule of thirds really balances the space and draws attention to the photos!
I hope you enjoyed viewing these new products and this short tutorial 🙂
See you soon,
