'Team Spirit' Layout by Linda

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Linda has created a great layout to share today. 
I hope it gets you feeling crafty too!





Tutorial:
1.    Choose two 6”x4” portrait style photos for your layout.
2.    Cut out a coordinating piece of cardstock 26cm x 23.5cm and arrange your photos, a journalling card from the kit and the large camera icon on this background with a piece of patterned paper to complete the block.
3.    Adhere these items to the cardstock block and adhere block to centre of cardstock base.
4.    Stamp (or use a mask) to create some detail below the block. This will balance up the title block at the top which you can now create with the alphabet stickers in the Daily Grind Kit.
5.    Finish your layout by embellishing with Ephemera Pieces and stickers from the kit. I kept a visual triangle in mind when I placed my stickers/ephemera around the sides of my layout.
