Bridal Shower Layout

Hi friends!  Marilyn here and I have a confession to make:  this is my FIRST layout - ever

First, I have my tip of the day for you.... Scrapbooks are a blessing.  Seriously, the memories we document today will be treasured beyond our lifetimes.

Instead of having these photos tossed and forgotten in a shoe box, I now have this great and lasting keepsake.

Bridal Shower Layout

Here is what you need:
  • 12" scrapbook design paper.  Mine came from K&Company "SW Spring Blossom."
  • Cricut cartridges:  Pretty Pennants, Storybook, Sweethearts
  • Cardstock:  black, orange, yellow
  • Twine
  • Foam Tape
  • Bling (gems and such)
  • Adhesive
  • White gel pen
  • Family Photos

Layout Recipe:

Page Banner
  • Cut a piece of twine the length of your scrapbook page.  Pull through a dollop of glue and lay onto your scrapbook page.  Make two bows and glue to each end.
  • Cut banners from Cricut Pretty Pennants cartridge at 1 1/2" [BnrSclp1].  Attach to twine with foam tape.
  • Cut letters from Cricut Storybook cartridge at 1".  The apostrophe on the "S" is actually the center from the letter "A". 
  • "Bridal Shower" = cut image and shadow at 2 1/2" from Cricut Sweethearts cartridge; [Shower] found on page 51 of the folder.  Somewhere between the cutting and attaching, I lost the dot for the "I", so I used a gem in place.
  • Photos:  Each photo is layered with black cardstock; cut to size.
  • Name Banners:  cut at 1 1/2" from Cricut Pretty Pennants cartridge at 1 1/2" [BnrSclp1].  Add a white gem at the top.  Names are handwritten using a white gel pen.

  • Journal Panel:  cut image and shadow at 2 1/4" from Cricut Storybook cartridge; [Marque2-s] found on page 66 of the folder.

I hope your enjoyed todays project, and as always, comments are appreciated.

Thank you for stopping by and Have a blessed day!
