Family Walk Layout by Paige Evans

 Hi everyone! Here is a layout I taught how to make LIVE in my Happy Scrappy Place Facebook Group for International Scrapbook Day using Wonders!

I started by cutting (9) frames - 8 of them are from Paper 24 and the green one is from Paper 8Paper 24 is a 3x4" cut-apart paper so I cut all the cards apart and then trimmed them down to 3 x 3 3/4". To turn the papers into frames I put one paper in my trimmer horizontally (so starting my first cut at what will be the top), aligned the right edge to 1/4", put my trimmer about 1/4" down, and then trimmed down to the 2 3/4" mark. I rotated the paper counter-clockwise, aligned the right edge to 1/4", started 1/4" down, then trimmed down to the 2 3/4" mark. Rotate the paper counter-clockwise, align the right edge to 1", start 1/4" down, then trim down to the 2 3/4" mark. For the last cut, rotate the paper counter-clockwise, align the right edge to 1/4", start 1" down, then trim down to the 3 1/2" mark. One frame down, 8 to go! :)
Once I had all 9 paper frames trimmed, I grabbed a piece of textured white cardstock and arranged the frames in a 3x3 grid, alternating the orientation of the frames, and adhered them with foam squares for dimension. I printed (4) 2 1/2" photos and placed them under 4 of the frames. In the center frame I used the colorful alpha stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book to say "family" and the Thickers to say "WALK" along with a piece of scalloped Washi Tape above. I added a "saturday" Cardstock Sticker below along with a gold heart Puffy Sticker.
I tucked a journaling card (with the bottom trimmed off to fit inside the frame) from the Ephemera Die Cuts into the top left frame and wrote journaling with a blue pen. I added a purple "grateful" Banner Sticker to the top and another gold heart Puffy Sticker. To the left of the frame I used a trio of hearts from the Acrylic Stamps and Lagoon ink from Altenew to stamp an accent (I also stamped another trio next to the bottom right frame using Moss ink).
From there it was just a continuation of adding embellishments from Wonders! I used Epoxy Phrase Stickers6x12 Cardstock StickersChipboard StickersPuffy Stickers, the 8-Page Sticker BookBanner StickersFloral Die Cuts, and Ephemera Die Cuts.
I hope you are inspired in some way by this layout and pick up my Wonders collection to document your precious memories!
