Structure Your Storytelling With This Farm Scrapbook Layout

Silos — structures for storing bulk materials and keeping them secure and safe from the elements. And while silos can store different grains, coal, woodchips, wheat, fermented feed and more agriculture needs, this DIY silo on this farm scrapbooking layout will store and protect your precious photos, memories and memorabilia with Peekaboo Pockets™! Open up (literally!) to new ideas with this innovative idea from blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of Hot Fudge Solid Cardstock as the base of this layout. Cut the sheet metal texture paper to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″ and add to the base.

Step 2: Cut a piece of corrugated tin texture paper to measure 8-1/4″ x 11″. With the inside edge of the Jumbo Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut the top as shown. Use the Brown Dual-Tip Pen to ink the edges. Adhere to the layout.

Step 3: Cut a piece of red barn wood texture paper to 8″ x 6″ for a mat. Add the “Making memories” variety mat and the barbed wire laser-cut mat, and then cut in half. For the backside of the red barn wood texture mat, cut out the panel from the variety mat. Add stickers and inset the mats to Peekaboo Pockets™.

Step 4: Use the Field Fence Border Punch to punch one border from Black Solid Cardstock and one from Charcoal Solid Cardstock. Layer the borders (with the charcoal border on top) and add to the page. Punch a border with the Wildflowers Border Punch and tan windmills designer paper. Adhere this border over the layered fence borders.

Step 5: Cut a piece of the straw texture paper to 1/8″ wide and twist it to make it look like twine. Tie a bow and add to the page with other stickers and embellishments as shown.

Step 6: Adhere the Southwestern laser-cut mat and a few stickers, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

Step 7: After you insert the completed page to a Page Protector, adhere the Peekaboo Pockets™.
