"So Happy" layout tutorial by Narelle

Hi everyone!

Here's another layout using the gorgeous  Cocoa Vanilla "free Spirit" range.  For this layout I used layers of corrugated cardboard between the papers but if you would prefer a flatter layout you could use a thinner cardstock, or not use any cardstock at all and just adhere paper to paper.


  1. Ink around all the papers and embellishments with "iced spruce" or another greenish/grey ink.
  2. Cut the a piece of the pink paper 19x12cm and adhere to the base at an angle.
  3. Tear a piece of the spotted paper approx. 18cm x 20cm and adhere over the top of the pink (I didnt put any cardstock between these two layers)
  4. Adhere a square photo, printed on 5x7'" paper, on top.
  5. Add the title, using a fine tipped glue.
  6. Adhere a phrase in the lower left corner, using double sided foam tape or foam squares to build up the left side.
  7. Create a cluster of embellishments in the right corner to match the photo theme.
