"Outdoor Girl" Layout By Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a gorgeous layout to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.


Pink buttons, White grosgrain ribbon


1.       Trim Echo Park “Border Strip” paper (reverse side) to 10 ½ x 7 ½  inch rectangle.  Lightly ink the edges with brown ink.   Adhere to the brown cardstock in the bottom half, leaving an even border on bottom and 2 side edges.
2.       Trim “Flutterby” paper (reverse side) to 6 ¼ x 9 ¼ inch rectangle, ink edges in brown and matt on green cardstock with a fine border.  Adhere in the centre of the pink rectangle.
3.       Cut a circle that measures 6 inch across the centre,  from “Clover meadow” paper, and a 6 x 12 inch strip from the reverse.  Ink the edges in brown and adhere the strip 2 ½ inches from base of Layout.  Adhere the circle 1 inch from left edge and ½ inch from base.
4.       Add ribbon in the centre of the green & white strip, then tie a bow using the Bow Easy and glue to the right edge.
5.       Add your photos (I have used 2 ½ x 4 inch photos)
6.       To make the fan folded flowers:-
Cut 2 strips of “clover Meadow” paper-  2cm x 25cm and 1 strip 3cm x 25cm.
Fan fold the paper, starting with a 0.5cm fold. 

Glue the 2 ends together to form a ring.
Gently pull the outside edge of the ring out to form the flower.

Apply Pritt glue to a small circle of paper and press the flower into the glue until it sticks flat.

1.       Add buttons that have been threaded with some Bakery Twine.
2.       Glue the flowers to the layout using pritt.
3.       Lay the bakery twine around the layout with some pritt glue holding the loops in place.
4.       Cut out pink and green butterflies from the “Flutterby” paper off cuts and scatter around the layout.
5.       Add a title and sticker from the Sticker sheet.
