Some Cute Layout Ideas!

Tara Lehmann is one of our talented designers. She has created these darling layouts that you can put together in a snap!

This sunny page celebrates the many sides of her son's personality. You can re-create this layout by making a simple template for your photos. First, cut a large circle from cardstock using the EK Success Curvy Cutter. Fold the circle in half once and then in half again and then a third time. When you unfold the circle, it should be divided into 8 sections. You can cut the sections apart and use them to size and cut your photos. When you are ready to place your pictures on your layout, they should fit together like slices of a pie. Embellish the center with a cute journaling dial from My Mind's Eye and some chipboard accents.

This layout is a great example of how to work with large rub-ons. Tara created a photo collage on her computer, then added some simple but cute embellishments. She placed the rub-on along the side of her page, overlapping the photo. It helps tie all the pinks together and really makes an impact. This page is so fun and sparkly, it makes me want some candy!
