Ahh… biting into the sweetest of strawberries, crunchiest of cucumbers, juiciest of tomatoes — there’s nothing more refreshing or rewarding. Whether straight from the dirt of the earth or at a booth at a farmers’ market, there’s something special about farm-to-table goodness (and showing a bit of homegrown love for your locale!). And speaking of goodness, check out this great farm scrapbook layout that was ripe for the picking (and creating!) from blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu!

Step 1: Use a piece of the woodgrain paper as the base of this layout.
Step 2: Cut a piece of the mini sunflowers paper to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″.
Step 3: Fold the piece of the mini sunflowers paper in half diagonally to make a triangle shape. Open the paper and fold in half diagonally again. Cut one side of the triangle shape at 1″, 1-1/2″ and 2″. Cut the other side at 1/4″ and 2″. Now you have a 2″ width frame. Set the frame aside.
Step 4: Fold the small square piece in half diagonally. Cut one side of the triangle at 1″, 1-1/2″ and 2-1/2”. Cut the other side at 1/4″, 3/”, 1-3/4″ and 2-1/4″.
Step 5: Fold the frame and square piece as shown. Add to the page.
Step 6: Cut one mat to measure 4″ x 6″ and two mats to measure 4″ x 4″ from a piece of red gingham paper. Cut one mat to measure 3-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ and two mats to measure 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ from a piece of White Solid Cardstock. Add to the red gingham mats.
Step 7: Cut a piece of the green grid paper to measure 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″. Cut the brown grid journal mat to measure 4-1/2″ x 3″. Add to the green grid mat.
Step 8: Adhere stickers, embellishments and mats, using Foam Squares on some for added

I like the layout! The farm suite is not my thing – but this sketch can certainly be adapted to another paper collection ….. Going to be trying this one with my vacation papers
Love this layout, thanks for sharing!
Smart! I like it!
I’m just a little or maybe a lot confused as how to do the triangle part, I need an actual tutorial. Otherwise I love this layout. Sorry 🥲
Sarah, Here’s the link to Sachiyo’s video on YouTube. https://youtu.be/reowQOzdyYw
There’s no verbal instruction only captioned instructions. This may make it easier to follow with the written instructions here. I hope this is helpful.
Sarah – Sachi made a YouTube video on how to make this layout – her channel is called Sachi’s Creative Mind.
I like this layout. It can be used no matter what the theme. I love the farm collection! It’s so versitile – country and state fair visits/exhibiting, 4-Her’s, and FFA members, farmer’s markets, vegetable gardening, breakfast/supper on the farm events, etc. I’ve been waiting for this a very long time! Thanks CM
I do 2-page layout but sometimes end up with an empty page.
This design looks great without pictures can be used has a filler for those empty pages.
Use pretty two sided paper.
