Designer’s Choice: Beach Fun

Hi Everyone!  Gina here to share a fun step by step tutorial of how I put a recent page together using the fabulous Scrapbook Circle Island Paradise kit.   Beach Fun Layout


1.  I started my page out by creating a background in Silhouette Studio.  I lined up simple triangles to create my background. Once, I had my background put together the way I wanted it, I ungrouped my shapes to cut each piece individually.   triangle page

2.  After cutting each shape out of different pieces of patterned paper, I lined them up on my page using repositionable tape.  Tip: I also cut a few pieces where I wanted my photos to go, so that I could use them as a guide for sizing (like a template). GinaLideros_BeachFun2

3. Select photos for your layout.  I purposely selected photos that were smaller in scale, so that I knew that they would fit within my template. GinaLideros_BeachFun4

4.  Use extra triangle pieces as a template for your photos, trace around them and cut out. GinaLideros_BeachFun3

5.  After placing my photos on my layout, I used my sewing machine to stitch all of my pieces in place. GinaLideros_BeachFunLayout5c

6.  Add embellishments and you’re done!

Along with my Island Paradise August kit this month, I also used the Bungalow and Tiki Torch add ons.  I had so much fun this month playing with this kit.  It is so fun and versatile and perfect for summer!  If you haven’t already – stop by Scrapbook Circle to pick up your August kit today!
