"Year in the Life" Journal by Narelle

Hey everyone

Today I have decorated the front of a Kaisercraft A4 journal, using the fabulously bright Echo Park "Sunny Days Ahead" range.  I'm going to use the journal to document this year in our family so you can expect to see some layouts and tutorials as we progress through the year!!

  1. Cut the red side of the "clouds" paper to 29.5cm x 19.5cm and adhere in the centre of the cover.
  2. Cut the teal side of the "Umbrellas" paper 10cm x 18cm and adhere between the rings.
  3. Cut the Yellow side of the "spring floral" paper 15cmx 10cm and adhere in a landscape orientation in the upper left quadrant of the cover.
  4. Cut the green side of the "sun ahead" paper 15cm x 10m and adhere in a portrait orientation in the lower right quadrant of the cover.
  5. Cut the striped and ruler borders from the "sun ahead paper, as well as the journal block "today" and the "bright days ahead" panel.
  6. Adhere the striped border, starting at the right side as shown, then stick the "today" journal block over the top in the centre of the cover.
  7. Add the ruler strip underneath then add a title using the alphabet stickers that come in the pack.
  8. Embellish the cover with stickers as desired.
