Crop Class

Sarah put this gorgeous class together for the crop last Sunday so we thought it would be great to share it with everyone! The class kit can be found here in the shop.

1. Adhere the scalloped circle paper to the middle of the Kraft cardstock, ensuring that your adhesive is at least 2″ from the edges of the scallops
2. From the Imagine a Forest – Get the Camera paper, hand cut one of the scalloped edges which back onto the polka dot strip & save this to tuck under the top of your photos
3. Tear a strip from the same paper (from the reverse) which will go beneath your photos
4. Turn the Happy Trees paper over and hand cut one of the pink vines out – the full 12″ and put to one side
5. Cut 7 (or more) trees from the Happy Trees paper and put to one side
6. Punch or cut a 2 ½” or 3″ circle (scalloped or plain) from the Happy Trees paper to create your paper flower (as seen beneath the green paper butterfly). Divide the circle into 8ths (fold in half, turn through 90 degrees & fold again then fold in between each of these folds). Cut ¾ down each of these 8 lines, leaving the centre intact (i.e. don’t cut all the way through). Crumple up the flower & open back out then draw faux stitching along each edge  
7. Cut a heart shape from the back of the Happy Trees paper (this will go at the top of your layout by the title)
8. Now we’re ready to assemble. Stick your photos across the middle of the layout, making sure there is no adhesive at the top or the bottom
9. Slip the scalloped edge paper under the photos at the top and adhere
10. Slip the green dotty paper beneath the photos at the bottom and adhere
11. Weave the pink rick rack in through the cotton lace and adhere this beneath your photos
12. Take 5 of the trees you have cut out and adhere these in a cluster on the bottom left of your photos, using foam pads to add height & dimension. Add the 3 Dew Drops around this cluster. Adhere two more in between the two photos, as shown – again using foam pads on one of the trees to add dimension
13. Take the 12″ vine you have cut and adhere this to the right hand side of the layout as shown, patterned side up. Doodle faux stitching along the centre of this vine
14. Cluster your paper flower (stick your button in the centre, add a stitch to the middle of the button if you like), the paper butterfly & paper flowers provided at the bottom right of the photos, as shown. Twist the silver wire provided to create a body & antennae for the butterfly & adhere using Glossy Accents or another strong glue or using a stitch through the layout and tie down on the underside of your card
15. Curl up the scalloped edges of the scalloped circle paper and the scalloped edge above the photos
16. Add your title to the top of the layout as shown and your journalling beneath the photos.
