Layout of the Week

Late, I know.....but not forgotten....This weeks layout of the week comes from the lovely Tammie and uses the beautiful new range by K and Co. called the Mira collection.


White Bazzill
Flower shaped black Bazzill
K&Co Mira paper pad (sheets as listed below)
K&Co Beaded Flower Brads
K&Co Winged Wonders grand adhesions
Making Memories Shimmer alphabet - black
Kindy Glitz
Cutterbee Bugs
Emroidery thread and needle
Large Circle template

Paper required from the paper pad:

1 sheet red roses (whole sheet)
1 blue swirl sheet - 2 strips, 1/2" and 1"
1 green spotty (reverse of blue) - 3"x3" square
1 sheet patchwork, using the spotty square, small red square, blue flower square and green strip
2 strips of last sheet in pad (yellow/green flower, reverse orange/red) 12cmx2cm each one strip is used as orange side


1. Place red roses sheet on right hand side of bazzill so the bottom right hand side of the paper slightly overhangs the bazzill. Adhere to the bazzill, but leave the bottom left hand corner free of adhesive so the green spotted paper can slide underneath.

2. Place the cut out squares and green strip across the top of the page working from the red rose piece to the far left hand side of the page.

3. Place photos across the middle of the page slightly overlapping the strips of patterned paper. do not adhere until the patterned paper strips at the bottom of the page have been arranged and adhered.

4. Place the spotty square in its position just underneath the red rse paper, place the blue 1" strip, orange 2cm strip slightly underneath photos.

5. Place the light green strip at the bottom of the red paper and meeting up with the green spotty paper.

6. Adhere all the paper and photographs to the page and adhere dark blue 1/2" strip to the top of the photos overlapping part of the photos and part of the red paper.

7. Using shimmer alphabet create title under photos. Add butterfly to the right of the title and slightly overlapping photos.

8. Fasten beaded flower brads at top of page in the middle.

9. draw a circle around the inside edge of the bazzill using a large circle template (eg dinner plate)

10. Use the single row Cutterbee Bug to make stitching holes in the cardstock along the circle lines and stitch a simple running stitch to complete the circle.
