Instructions for #AugustBONUS1

Layout by Karyn McDermaid-Rolfe – CM Independent Advisor

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use the Custom Cutting System with the Jumbo Simple Frame Pattern and the Blue and Red Blades on the inside edge to cut a hollow frame from red hemp designer paper. Make your first cut with the Blue Blade on the inside edge, and without moving the Jumbo Simple Frame Pattern cut again using the Red Blade on the inside edge to cut a hollow frame. You will use both the hollow frame and also the resulting solid frame.

Step 2: Use the Custom Cutting System with Jumbo Simple Frame Pattern and the Red Blade on the inside edge to cut a piece from the basketweave designer paper. Adhere the hollow frame piece from Step 1 on top of the basketweave piece. 

Step 3: Adhere the solid red hemp frame and the basketweave/red hemp frame to the middle of the seashells paper as shown.

Step 4: From ocean blue waves texture tonal paper, cut two 4″ x 4″ squares. Use the Dips & Dunes Tearing Tool to tear the squares in half on the diagonal.

Step 5: From sand ripples designer paper, cut two 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ squares. Use the Dips & Dunes Tearing Tool to tear the squares in half on the diagonal.

Step 6: Use the Original Border Maker System with the Footprints Border Maker Cartridge to punch borders on the long ends of the four sand ripples squares.

Step 7: Adhere the sand ripples triangle pieces to the ocean blue waves triangle pieces. Adhere to the four corners of the layout.

Step 8: Cut 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and 5″ x 4-1/4″ photo mats from ocean blue waves tonal paper. Crop photos to 4″ x 4″ and 4-3/4″ x 4″ and adhere to the mats.

Step 9: Add stickers and embellishment, adhering some with Foam Squares for added dimension.
