Hi there! I created a layout for the Making Memories blog and it is being featured today.
I used lots of their brand new Dilly Dally line which is so bright and fun! It's perfect for spring time layouts or just a girly layout as well!
I also fell in love with the new Tie the Knot paper.... specifically the piece I used for the background which is called "Frames" and I wanted to show you some more details about how I put the three bright patterned papers into the frame spots.
Step 1: Use an exacto knife to carefully cut out the centers of the frames.
Step 2: Choose the papers that you want to use behind each of the frames and cut them down so that they are just a bit bigger than each opening. The pink and green rectangles don't have to be cut exactly straight, but for the one that is hanging off the edge (the yellow one in this case), you want to make sure that you cut the rectangle with a nice straight edge so that it lines up perfectly.
Step 3: Flip the paper over and use adhesive to attach the rectangle squares behind the frame openings. This image shows the paper from the back with the rectangles glued down.
Step 4: Turn the paper back over and you are finished! Now you have a customized background page that is ready for your photos and embellishments!
I just love how those few little pieces of paper add so much brightness and fun to the otherwise very monochromatic background page! You can see my completed layout here on the Making Memories blog along with a list of the products I used.
