Step 1: Use a piece of Blue Solid Cardstock for the base of this layout.
Step 2: Cut a piece of diagonal stripes designer paper to measure 11-3/4” x 11-3/4”. Mark at 1”, 2”, 3” and 4” from the top-left and bottom-right corners. Use the 12-inch Trimmer and the Perforating Blade, cut the paper diagonally to connect the marked points. Tear a part of the paper along the perforated line and roll the piece by hand as seen above. Use a piece of adhesive to fix the roll.
Step 3: Cut a 1” strip from the purple designer paper and the multi-hued shutters designer paper. Adhere the strips to the back of the diagonal stripes designer paper and trim the excess. Add to the base.
Step 4: Use the Scissors Border Punch to punch a border from Platinum Shimmer and Pumpkin Solid Cardstocks. Cut out three scissors segments from both hues and assemble to make scissors.
Step 5: Cut two mats to measure 4” x 4” from a piece of White Solid Cardstock. Cut two circles using the outside edge of the smallest Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern with the Green Blade from White Solid Cardstock. Adhere the mats from the backside of the laser-cut paper. Add to the page.
Step 6: Draw a dotted line to the laser-cut paper. Draw lines to journal on the right bottom-right of the page. Cut out the “Live to scrap” from a variety mat.
Step 7: Adhere scissors and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
