Layout by Krislyn Mattei – CM Independent Advisor

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use two pieces of White Solid Cardstock (or two White Refill Pages) as the bases for this layout.

Step 2: Place the Sunrise, Sunset Recipe Template on top of abstract ombré daubs designer paper. Trace the center 4″ semi-circle onto the orange section. Either cut out with Micro-Tip Scissors or cut using the Circle Cutter set to 4″. Repeat with each of the rest of the circular shapes and darkening shades of the paper. Arrange and adhere pieces on the layout, using the template as a guide for accurate placement.

Step 3: Cut 16 2-5/8” squares with light blue wash, aqua abstract paint daubs, mint abstract paint daubs and teal wash tonal papers. Arrange across the lower halves of each base using the Sunrise, Sunset Recipe Template as a guide for placement. Cut four 4-1/4″ squares of water ripples vellum paper and adhere on the squares with Vellum Tape Runner Refill. Burnish to hide adhesive.

Step 4: Using the Circle Cutter with the dial set at 4″, cut three photos into circles. Adhere on the vellum squares. Using the Sunrise, Sunset Recipe Template, trace and cut the title from a variety mat and soft medium orange stripes designer paper. Adhere on a vellum square.

Step 5: Crop two photos to 3-1/4” x 5-1/8” and mat on two 3-5/8” x 5-3/8” pieces of soft medium orange stripes designer paper. Crop one photo to 3-1/2” x 5-1/8”. Mat on a 3-5/8” x 5-3/8” piece of navy abstract paint daubs tonal paper. Adhere on the layout.

Step 6: Using the Friendly Fish Border Punch, punch two borders with red-orange abstract paint daubs tonal paper. Adhere across the bottom of the layout.

Step 7: Adhere a scallop waves laser-cut border, embellishments and stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 8: Journal as desired.

  1. Thanks, Krislyn, for this layout. I always struggle to know how to use vellum paper, but this idea is a great one, and adaptable to any theme or collection. Great page, and I’ll use parts of it on my pages.
