My Story Layout Tutorial

My Story Layout

Heart Strings Sheet, Heirloom Roses Sheet, decorative tape, enamel shapes, mixed bag, die cut journaling cards, rub-ons
Images are 7.5” x 6” and 3” x 3” 
Brown Ink Pad
Red Ink Pad
Black Ink Pad
Grey Ink
Letter Stamps

Paper Cutter
Double Sided Tape

Grab the Heart Strings and Heirloom Roses Sheets, and your images.

With a ruler and knife or paper cutter, follow the lines on the Heirloom Roses Sheet and cut the paper so you have 7 black arrows.

Place the arrows on the right side of the layout, along with the ‘today’ and the ‘date card’ from the Mixed Bag.

A good idea is to lay the page out before proceeding so you can alter it if needed. As you can see I quickly realized I only wanted to proceed with a single 3”x3” image.

Give the arrows a few sprtiz of your black Color Bloom spray paint, and let dry.

Once it is dry, place it on the layout sheet. With double sided tape, secure it. You will have parts of the arrows hanging off the layout, so turn the page over and cut off the excess with the ruler and knife.

 Grab your grey Ink and the Coffee Stain stamps. Place a few of the stamps around the page.

 Use your alphabet stamps and black ink to add a title or message on the date card.
Ink the edges of the card. Red ink on the top part and brown ink on the bottom part.

With your marker, add the date on the upper red area of the card.

Secure the larger image to the page with the red decorative tape. I liked the look of irregular and slightly sloppy tape placement.

With double sided tape, secure the date card down.

Place the small image down and secure that with the red decorative tape.

Find this arrow die cut journaling card and punch 5 arrows from it. Dab them in red ink and let dry.

Using double sided tape, secure the today die cut and place the red arrows to the right side of it.

Then, find the rub-ons. I find it easiest to cut out which designs you want, from the plastic sheet. This way you won’t accidentally rub any other designs as well. I chose the Note and Love This rub-ons.

They come with a wood stick, and apply very easily to the paper. Rub them to the bottom right of the large image.

Add a red enamel shape sticker to your message.

You now have a finished layout!

  1. Jeri, this layout is spectacular! You have really captured the movement of the race track! The stripes veering off to the right really gives the illusion of the track as it curves around the corner! I love it!
