Layout Tutorial using SCRAP THAT Serendipity April Kit.

I made this tutorial for the Scrap That Serendipity Kit. Check it out on the Scrap That Blog

1. Take the green patterned paper and cut an 8 inch circle in the middle of the page. Save the paper for later. I didn't cut mine right in the middle and it was hard to centre the top paper.

2. Using a corner punch with a design (it can be any brand however I used Martha Stewart's here), punch the circle around it's  edge. Make sure you line up the top of the design with the edge of the circle (as shown) and the side corner with the corner from the previous punch.

3. Continue punching around the circle. Note: I didn't finish punching around because I knew I was going to cut off the edge. However if you want to make a beautiful doily for another layout, this punching method is a great way of doing it. I used it in my other layout for my Scrap That reveal

4. Using some chalk ink, edge the punched edges with a darker green color.

5. Now for the fussy cutting part: Take the butterfly patterned paper and cut out all the butterflies. Then set aside (I did this while watching T.V).

6. Take the paper with the chandelier and make a punched border around the paper using an "All Around the page punch" (again I used Martha Stewart's but you don't have to)


 7. Then mat this punched paper on the green leftover paper like this.
8. Place the circle in the top left corner of your paper and cut around the edges.


9. place the picture at the edge of the top left corner ( I downsized the picture)
10. Using the brown trim from one of the papers make a scalloped frame around the picture.
11. starting from the bottom right corner cluster  all butterflies in an upward motion (as if flying). Start with the large ones first from the bottom and make your way up with the smaller ones until you reach the photo.
Tip: Make sure you put glue only in the centre of the butterflie so the wings stick up when you place them on the paper.

12. Take the pearl string and place it around the butterflies in a back and forth motion. Then using glue dots hold the strands together in place.


13. Spread and glue the mini flowers in between the butterflies.

14. Print your title from the computer and cut it out in strips. Ink the edges and glue it on the page.
