Tuesday Tutorial #12

This week's tutorial comes to us from ESS Design Team member Melinda Miller.  She created a fun and funky layout using Bo Bunny's popular Mama-Razzi2 Collection:

Here's how she did it: 

Paper Collection:    Bo Bunny – Mama-Razzi2
Papers used from the collection:
·         Mama Razzi
        Strike A Pose
·         Shutterbug
·         Contrast
·         Oh-Snap
·         Combo Stickers
·         Bazzill Cardstock in Teal and Burnt Orange

Other Supplies:
EK 3-D pop dots
Ranger Archival ink
Distress ink – Vintage Photo

1.  Layer 1: One 12 x 12 Paper – Mama Razzi

2.   The photo size is 6x6 and is double matted, so cut the teal green bazzill cardstock to 6 1/4" x 6 1/4".  Then cut the burnt orange side of Strike a Pose to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".   Adhere to the left center of the layout (see finished layout photo at top of post for placement).

Layer 2: Cut the 12 x 12 “Shutterbug” down to 2.5 x 11”.   Adhere to layer 1 at the far right of the sheet lining up with the edge.
3. Layer 3:  Cut green polka dot strips and film strips from the "Oh-Snap” sheet; adhere next to the “Shutterbug” layer using pop dots for one of the film strip layers. 
4. Die cut the letters ‘PAPARAZZI’ in various sizes and adhere down over the “Shutterbug” layer, using pop dots on a few of the letters. (If you don’t have a die cut machine you could also use letter stickers for this step.)  

5. Using a ½” circle cutter, I cut the Aperture circles from the “Oh-Snap” page, inked the edges and adhered down to the film later with pop dots.

6. Cut triangles to use as flags.   Distress the edges with sand paper and ink with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  Adhere stickers from the “Combo Stickers”, glue string behind the flags and adhere with pop dots.

7. Punch 1” and ½” circles from paper scraps, adhere together and line up at the top of the photo, cutting off the excess.  Using stickers from the “Combo Stickers” sheet, spell out 'Oh Snap'.

8. Cut the ribbon tag from a journal card on the “Mama Razzi – Contrast” sheet, ink edges and adhere.  Then add other stickers from “Combo Stickers” to embellish.

9. Complete the layout with stickers from the “Combo Stickers” sheet as desired; here's another look at that completed layout:

 Thanks so much to Melinda for another awesome layout tutorial... how quick and easy is this?  How much do you love the fact that she made a "Paparazzi" layout out of the "Mama-Razzi2" Collection?  Sounds a lot like something Nancy would do... ;)
