Have a Green Thumb of Fun With This Garden Scrapbook Layout

Basil and begonias. Tomatoes and thyme. Petunias and paprika peppers. Growing your own plants, vines, fruits, herbs and flowers can be so rewarding… so why not show it off?! No need to curb (or rather, herb) your enthusiasm, for this garden scrapbook layout is growing with plenty of possibilities that you’ll want to cultivate right away!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of honey yellow wash designer paper as the base for this layout. (To save paper, you may wish to cut out the inside of this piece using the 12-inch Trimmer.) Cut a piece of diamond grid designer paper to 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and mount on the base.

Step 2: Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ strip of dusty sky blue spots designer paper and adhere to the top of the layout. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1/4″ strip of wavy stripes designer paper, and along with a butterflies border sticker, adhere below the dusty sky blue spots strip as shown. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ strip of grass designer paper and adhere to the bottom of the layout. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1/4″ strip of wavy striped designer paper, and along with the lavender spring-inspired quote border sticker, adhere above the grass strip.

Step 3: Using the outside edge of the largest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with peach waves tonal paper. Adhere as shown, tucking part of the circle behind the previous strips.

Step 4: Cut 1-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ pieces from a variety of papers. Cut 1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ pieces from a variety of papers. Score the top 1/4″ using the 12-inch Trimmer and the Scoring Blade. Using scissors or the trimmer, cut small slices away to make a flower pot shape. Fold down the tops and apply Repositionable Tape Runner adhesive to secure them. Adhere on the layout as shown, popping the smaller flowerpots up with Foam Squares. Tuck flower stickers inside a couple of the flowerpots.

Step 5: Mat a 5-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ photo with a 6″ x 4″ piece of dark hunter green butterflies silhouette tonal paper. Mat a 3-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ photo with a 4″ x 6″ piece of dark hunter green butterflies silhouette tonal paper. Mount both on the layout.

Step 6: Adhere additional stickers and journal as desired.
