Step 1: Use a navy designer paper as the base for this layout. Trim a sheet of teal designer paper to measure 11-3/8” x 11-3/8” and mount on top of the base. Tip: to save paper, you may wish to cut out the inside of this piece using the 12-inch Trimmer.

Step 2: Using the Sunny Days Journal Template and a pencil, trace individual sunbeam shapes onto gold and gold striped designer papers, alternating colors, until you have traced half of the template’s rays. Trim out each shape using either Micro-Tip Scissors or the 12-inch Trimmer. Using the template as a guide, lay out and adhere each piece to a sheet of White Cardstock. Trim off 1/2″ from each side of the White Cardstock and mount on the layout.

Step 3: Using the outside track of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a circle from White Cardstock. Using the outside track of the Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle from teal paper. Mount the white circle on the teal circle and adhere to the center of the layout.

Step 4: Cut an 11” x 5-1/4” piece of teal circle paper. Adhere to the lower half of the White Cardstock. Top with the fence border sticker.

Step 5: Mat a 5-1/4” x 3-3/4” photo with a 5-1/2” x 4” piece of White Cardstock. Mat a 3-3/4” x 3-3/4” photo with a 4” x 4” piece of White Cardstock. Mount on the layout.

Step 6: Add stickers, popping some up with foam squares for added dimension.

Step 7: Using a Black Dual-Tip Pen and the Sunny Days Journal Template, draw journal lines on the white circle. Journal as desired.

  1. This is a beautiful layout! I really haven’t started taking photos, as summer is just getting underway here. But I would like to get some lovely landscape or sunrise/sunset photos.

  2. In step 3 are the papers mixed up? I think the teal paper should be cut with the blue blade and the white should be cut with the red blade since the white circle is matted on top of the teal circle
