To create this layout, you will need:


– Use a sheet of 12” X 12” Study Buddies Paper for the base of this layout.

– Cut 10 strips of white cardstock to measure 6” X 3/4”.

– Write 10 phrases and cut a flagged end at the end of your phrase.

– Use the corner rounder on either the top or the bottom left side corner (keep it random!)

– Cut a 2” strip of Study Buddies Paper and adhere it to your layout base.

– Cut 3 photos into 3” circles using the Circle CCS.

– Adhere the photos to the strip of Study Buddies paper using a tape runner.

– Cut a piece of white cardstock to 1-1/2” X 11” and cut a flagged end on the right side. Adhere to the layout.

– Use a ruler or a scrap strip of paper to help keep your title straight as you adhere Navy ABC/123s. Free-hand cut a heart and pop it up using a foam square.

– Adhere the 10 strips of paper in two uneven columns. Add Navy ABC/123s from 1-10 along the left side of each strip.

To create this layout, you will need:

  1. Title Blocks for ABC Title: Select your 2 favorite papers. The outside squares are 1.5”-squared and the inside blocks are 1.25”-squared. Adhere smaller squares on top of larger squares and top with a letter. Note: the top square is an embellishment from the Cool Serenity Embellishments pack.
  2. Adhere photos to your Fast2Fab page. Notice that photos don’t have to fit perfectly into mats on the page. In this case, 3 photos straddled 2 mats, but still looks great.
  3. Journaling Box is from the Cool Serenity Embellishments pack.

Step 1: Using tape runner, attach your 12” x 12” sheet to your page.

Step 2: Stick your ABC stickers around the outside border of your page. This is a great way to use up letters you haven’t used or won’t use. You could also use a variety of font’s, or sizes. I have run the Capital letters along the top and right hand side. The lower case letter fit along the bottom, and the numerals along the left hand side of your page.

Step 3: Cut your photo mat to 5-1/2” x 7-3/4” and attach your photo to it, and then both to your page as shown.

Step 4: Trim the long stickers from the Baby Boy sticker pack to fit between your photo and the numerals. Using ABC stickers, place over the top of every second border, or every border if you have more wording.

Step 5: Place embellishments such as the Apple from the Study Buddies Embellishments, the ruler from the Study Buddies paper pack, the Dream Big cloud sticker and school tie sticker and stars from the Baby Boy sticker pack.

To create these layouts, you will need:

ABC Title: lightly draw a squiggly line with a pencil and adhere your title so that it wraps around the upper corner.

For the photo that is inserted inside the title: This photo was trimmed down to 3.5” x 5.5” so a mat from the Fresh Picks Slide-In Pack could be used as a mat for the photo. Corner round the upper left corner of the photo and mat.

Circle Photo: Use the CCS-small circle with red blade to cut your photo. Mat with your preferred paper, small circle with green blade.

Border Maker System with the Lace Scallop Border Maker Cartridge with lavender paper from Fresh Picks Designer Paper Pack. Adhere with Repositionable Tape Runner.

Butterfly, Flower and jewels are from the Fresh Picks Embellishment pack. Adhere them with Foam Squares to lift them off your page.

Select five 4”x 6” photos.

Select one mat from the Fresh Picks Slide-in Pack to use as your journaling box.

Large butterfly embellishment is from the Fresh Picks Embellishment pack. Two large butterflies were used, white lace butterfly on top of a purple butterfly. Adhere the white butterfly with foam squares. This requires some cutting of the small foam squares in half in order to fit some of the areas so they won’t show.
