'Fabulous' Layout by Linda

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

1. Create your base with Hello Greet Paper and Hello Call Paper, both cut on an angle and joined. Distress edges
2. Add mixed media details to the background with stamps/masks from your stash, white gesso and Super Fibre Tape from the Hardware Store.
3. Cut a 12cm x 2cm piece of Story Recollect Paper. Punch with the Doily Lace Border Punch and adhere below the paper join on your background.
4. Cut a 12cm x .6cm strip of Special Unique Paper and adhere above the join on the layout background.
5. Die cut a strip with the Burlap Die and punch/die cut circles from this piece to adhere on your background creating a visual triangle that will draw the eye to your photo.
6. Mat your photo with Story Recollect Paper and accent with frayed muslin.
7. Adhere photo to the bottom right corner of the layout.
8. Add the Heidi Swapp Sticker title, stamped quotation marks from MME Cut and Paste Decorative Stamps and the date.
9. Cut three banners (11cm x 3cm; 12cm x 3.5cm; 14cm x 3.5cm) from your chosen patterned papers, distress the edges and adhere in the top left corner of the layout.
10. Across the top of the layout adhere a strip of Special Unique Paper and a scallop punched strip of Story Recollect Paper.
11. Stamp the Chevron pattern from the MME Cut and Paste Decorative Stamps with Black Staz On onto acetate and hand cut. Adhere across top of banner strips.
12. Accent this piece with the largest of the MME Decorative Brads.

13. Add the “Love This” sticker from Heidi Swapp and scatterings of MME Enamel Dots around the page to finish.
