Cook Up Creativity With This Family Scrapbook Spread

Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Fish Fridays. Grandma longing over her soul-warming chicken noodle soup to a kitchen novice baking a chocolate cake for the first time. No matter the meal or level of cookery and skills, being in the kitchen can dish out a ton of fun and smile-worthy memories (and hopefully some pretty tasty food, too)! Ready to whisk into action, work up a creative appetite and serve up a two-page layout? Then check out this family scrapbook spread — it’s a feast for the eyes!

To create the layout you will need:

Step 1: Use two pieces of navy chevron designer paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Using the Dine Border Punch, punch borders from eight shades of designer paper and/or mats. Alternate the point at which you begin punching. For some, begin punching at one of the black marks indicated on the punch. For others, begin punching in the middle of the punch, between black marks. Trim sections to 4-3/4″ and adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 3: Using the outside of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Green Blade, cut the teal “Family” mat, leaving one edge straight. Adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 4: Cut a 7″ x 12″ piece of pink striped designer paper and adhere to the left page, about 1/4″ from the right edge as shown. Cut a 4″ x 12″ piece of pink striped designer paper and adhere to the right page, about 1/4″ from the left edge as shown.

Step 5: Using the inside of the Custom Cutting System Square Pattern and the Red Blade, crop three photos. Using the inside of the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Green Blade, crop three more photos. Mount on the layout, as shown. Add the multi-hued striped mat to the middle of the left side of the layout and a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece of an orange suns mat to the right side of the layout (topped with a 3″ x 4″ piece of a multi-hued polka dot mat).

Step 6: Mat two 6″ x 4″ photos with yellow camera lens bursts and teal grid 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ mats. Mount on the right side of the layout.

Step 7: Add stickers and embellishments, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 8. Journal as desired.
