Instructions for #2022JuneBONUS

Layout by Krislyn Mattei – CM Independent Advisor

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of White Solid Cardstock (or a White Refill Page) as the base for this layout. Using the CM Zero Centering Ruler and Navy Micro-Tip Pen, draw a square around the cardstock, 3/8″ from the edges.

Step 2: Cut an 11″ x 1-3/4″ piece of sky border from the strips designer paper and adhere along the top of the layout. Cut an 11″ x 2-1/2″ strip of dashed scallops designer paper and adhere along the bottom of the layout. Cut an 11″ x 1-1/8″ piece of teal waves border from the strips designer paper and adhere just above the bottom piece. Cut two 11″ x 1/4″ strips of multi-hued blocks designer paper and adhere as shown.

Step 3: Crop two photos to 3-1/2″ x 5″ and adhere on the left and right sides of the layout. Crop one photo to 3-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ and mount on a 4-1/4″ x 5″ piece of bright blue waves tonal paper. Adhere to the middle layout, overlapping the other photos.

Step 4: Using the inside edge of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern, cut a circle with any paper, first cutting with the Blue Blade, then (without moving the pattern) cutting with the Red Blade, creating a ring. Cut the ring in half. Repeat nine times with various papers. Using the Repositionable Tape Runner, adhere in the pattern shown on the top and bottom of the layout, adding five of the circles that remained from the rings to the bottom patterns.

Step 5: Add stickers using Foam Squares and journal as desired.

We are excited to see how you’ll go from surf to your craft space turf and make the #2022JuneBONUS challenge!
