How to | create a layout step by step

Today's "how to" post comes from Wendy Smith.  Wendy has created this super cute Easter layout using the journaling sheets found in this month's kit "Isla".  Follow the steps below to create your own version.
Here's how...
Step1 - Using glimmermist, spritz and flick over base cardstock
Step2 - Repeat glimmermist process using a different colour in the back of one of the journal blocks
Step3 - Layer your journal blocks and chipboard doily to create a unique pattern, and matting for your photos
Step 4 - Slide your photos slightly under the scrapware chipboard doily
Step 5 - Adhere your ribbon and cluster your flowers around the chipboard doily
Step 6 - Cut out the butterflies from the journal blocks, and scatter them on your layout
FINALLY...Cut out a circle shape and place on your doily to journal on, place your title and doodle around the edge with a pen
Such a beautiful and simple layout to replicate.  The colours of "Isla" are just perfect for Easter layouts, and now's the time to catch up on last year's photos before this Easter hops along!

Have fun creating your own version!
Cheers, Lis.


  1. This is so pretty. Love the colours.

  2. This is great, I have been trying so hard to get extra depth and layers into my LO's. Maybe that is my problem, I have been trying too hard. Thank you for the inspiration.
