Fun fact of the day: Forests are home to more than three-quarters of the world’s life on land according to the World Wildlife Fund. And from wee seedlings to towering tall trees and eventually snags, wildlife and other plants depend on trees for their habitat. If you want to unearth a layout landscape as lush as a forest, then take a look at this framing forest scrapbook idea that blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu went out on a limb for! All you have to decide is what photos and woodland wonders you would highlight!
To create this layout you will need:
- Deep in the Woods Paper Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Deep in the Woods Texture Paper Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Deep in the Woods Laser Cut Borders or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Deep in the Woods Laser Cut Mats or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Deep in the Woods Stickers or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Hot Fudge & Light Gray Solid Cardstocks or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Original Border Maker System with Photography Chain Border Maker Cartridge or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)

Step 1: Use a piece of Hot Fudge Solid Cardstock as the base of this layout. Cut the birch bark designer paper to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″ and add to the base.
Step 2: Cut five photo mats to measure 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ from the Light Gray Solid Cardstock.
Step 3: Cut the tree bark texture paper to eight pieces of 1/2″ strips. Roll the strip to make it look like a stick. Use the Precision Point Adhesive to add the tree bark sticks to the edges of the mats as shown. Add laser-cut borders to the bottom of each mat. Add the mats to the page.
Step 4: Cut a piece of Light Gray Solid Cardstock to measure 5″ x 7″ and adhere to the back of a laser-cut mat. Add to the page.
Step 5: Use the Photography Chain Border Maker Cartridge to punch two borders with Hot Fudge Solid Cardstock and one border with the mossy brick texture paper. Adhere the hot fudge borders under the mossy brick border. Add a small piece of Hot Fudge Solid Cardstock under the border to cover the camera lens part. Add the border to the page.
Step 6: Adhere stickers, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
