Happy Monday, We R friends! Laura here today with a squares scrapbook page that is so simple to put together with a little help from the square punch board and laser square.
I started with the Butterflies & Flowers cardstock stack from DCWV. I chose my favorite papers from the stack and punched out twelve 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares using the square punch board.
The punch board makes it easy to punch out more than one square from the same sheet. You can use double-sided patterned paper and get two squares from each sheet with just a couple of punches.
I used my paper trimmer to cut out two rectangles that were 2 ½” x 5 ½”. To line everything up on my page I used the laser square as my guide.
The detail scissors made it easy to cut out three butterflies from one of the cardstock sheets in the stack. I always like to add a little dimension to my scrapbook pages. I did this by folding up the wings and using an adhesive dot on one.
This was the perfect backdrop for our family photo from 2017. I usually take our photo when we go out into the woods in November to cut down a Christmas tree. It is fun because sometimes we have snow and sometimes, like last year, we don’t have any. We all probably could have been in shorts it was so warm the day we went!
I used the 3-way corner punch to round the corners on both the orange photo mat and the photograph. I also used the punch on some of the squares and the two rectangles I used for the background.
I attached the photo using adhesive dots. I added some stick-on sequin and gem embellishments to the photo.
I added more sequin and gems to different squares of the layout to tie everything together.
I love the way this layout turned out. The papers all work beautifully together. Once I had my design in mind, the square punch board made it so easy to get the squares cut out for the background. And I feel like I waste less paper using the square punch board because it cuts the square out of the corner of the page, rather than having to cut a strip off the sheet using my paper trimmer.
