Scrapbook Page for St Louis Trip

This week I decided to focus on scrapbook pages.  There will be at least 3 of them added .  This is a tutorial on how to make this page but mainly it is a “how to” guide on making a scrapbook pages in Design Space.  Since Design space will only cut 11.5 X 11.5 inches it forms a nice border around the whole page.

While at the CKC Convention, my daughter and Ken went to the arch and to the Science Museum.  This is a scrapbook page of their visit.  I shared some of the projects with you already from the convention.  See them here.  Many of the projects I did I already converted to cricut.

What You Need:

        • Download File
        • 2 sheets of 12 X 12 cardstock
        • tape and liquid glue
        • acid free tape (Painters Tape)
        • various scraps of cardstock
        • pictures
Cutting the Paper

One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both.  It is just too confusing.  The hole size can be changed if you are more experienced with Design Space.  I have included the cutout shapes as a hidden graphic in the design space file.  If you want to do this and aren’t sure how, email me and I will send you instructions.

The embellishments can be cut from any color that goes with your color palette.  I realize that you probably aren’t doing this page so change the embellishments to match your page.

As I said earlier, design space will cut the top page to 11.5 x 11.5 and this makes a border for your page.

Assembly

Before you glue the top page to the bottom page, attach the pictures where and how you want them to the back of the top sheet with painters tape.

Now you can attach the two pages together with the top page centered on the bottom page.  Glue the embellishments to the top page where you want them.

Your page is finished.  If you want a two page layout just repeat the process to make a second page.

I will post more layouts soon.
