Layout by Kelly Batten – Australia Home Office

To create this layout you will need:

Achievements Paper Pack  US CAN

Cool Serenity Paper Pack US CAN

Triumph Paper Pack  US CAN

Achievements Embellishments  US CAN

Black ABC/123 Stickers  US CAN

Ruby ABC/123 Stickers  US CAN

12″ Straight Trimmer  US CAN

Step 1:  From the Achievements Paper Pack choose the damask design paper and chalkboard (black) paper, choose the light sand coloured paper from the Cool Serenity pack and the red chevron design from the Truimph Paper Pack.

Step 2: Trim the black paper to 10×11″, trim the sand paper to 9×10″ and adhere these papers as a double-mat for an 8×10″ photo as shown. Then adhere this to the centre of the damask paper.

Step 3: Trim a 3×12″ strip of red chevron paper, and from the left over scraps, trim a 1 1/2×12″ strip of sand paper and 1×12″ strip of black paper. Adhere these strips together, then slide between the sand and black photo mats. Adhere the ends of the strip to the damask paper.

Step 4: Using more leftover strips of paper, trim a black 5×2″ strip and 4 3/4×1 3/4″ sand strip. Carefully trim 2 corners off each strip (at 45 degree angles) and adhere together. Overlap Black and Ruby ABC/123 Stickers to make the black stickers look like a drop shadow behind the Ruby stickers. Add journalling and embellishments.

    1. Coupon code wouldn’t work for me either. It was prior to 6pm. I was a little disappointed by that.

      1. This is not a reply, but a comment, because I have photos from a recent visit to Australia, I was disappointed there were no supplies based on the beautiful art work of their Indigenous people.
