Aussie Adventure Theme Pack Layout
Step 1: Use a piece of brown scallop patterned paper as the base for this layout.
Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 1-1/2″ strip of floral patterned paper and adhere it to the top of the layout. Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip and adhere it to the bottom of the layout.
Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of green patterned paper. Cut a 12″ x 1-1/2″ strip of White Cardstock and adhere it to the top of the green strip.
Step 4: Using the Gum Leaf Punch, punch five aqua and five green gum leaves. Overlap and adhere them to the white strip, as shown. Punch five yellow gum leaves from the “Time for a holiday” mat. Trim out just the berries and adhere them to the middle of the leaf clusters. Adhere the border to the layout above the bottom floral piece.
Step 5: Crop three photos to measure 4″ x 4″. Adhere them side-by-side on the layout with the border stickers tucked behind so just the scallops show.
Step 6: Add stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares. Journal as desired.
Aussie Adventures Theme Pack Border
Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of Aqua Cardstock for the base of this border.
Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Deckle Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of green patterned paper and mount it on the base. Switch back to the 12-inch Trimmer Straight Blade and cut a 12″ x 2-1/4″ strip of floral patterned paper. Mount it on top.
Step 3: Trim out the “Memories in Australia” section from the patterned paper and adhere it to the border.
Step 4: Using the Gum Leaf Punch, punch several leaves with Aqua Cardstock, Dark Sea Green Cardstock and green patterned paper. Cluster and cascade them down the right side of the border. Add more as desired. Place the koala sticker over the leaves with Foam Squares.
