'We Are So Blessed' Layout by Narelle

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

1.     Select 4 different coloured papers from the 11.75 x 5.75” paper pack.
2.    Trim the 3 papers that will form the vertical background to 20cm in length. 
3.    Trim the fourth piece of paper to measure  7cm x 25cm.
4.    Lightly ink the edges of each piece.
5.    Adhere the first piece 3cm from the left of the vanilla cardstock base, and 5cm from the top.
6.    The next piece is overlapped, 8.5cm from the left and 2cm from the top.
7.    The final piece overlaps again, 13.5cm from the left and 3.5cm from the top.
8.    Adhere the horizontal 7cm x 25cm piece, 3cm from the left edge of the cardstock and 2cm from the base.
9.    Add the 5x7” photo 6.5cm from the left edge and 7.5cm from the top.
10.    Adhere the “We are simply blessed” phrase 6.5cm from the right edge and 3cm from the base, then add the chipboard “family” overlapping the phrase and the photo.
11.    Cut the scalloped 12” strips from the flower packs, and use the Die-namics die and the cuttlebug machine to add the fold lines for accordian flowers in super quick time!  Add the flower centres from the flower packs and adhere to the layout in a cluster in the bottom left and upper right corners of the photo, adding some chipboard and paper leaves from the embellishment packs
