We have a special treat for you up on the blog today. Our dear friend, Sharon Giles, has created this beautiful layout and typed out some directions. Sharon’s work is always a treat as she uses everyday photos and highlights special memories. In this layout, Sharon uses new products from our Vintage Artistry Essentials collection, Be sure to check out all the details below.
Step 1 – Trim the large ephemera piece, tag, and leaves. Image 4 and 6
Please note: I have sanded the edges of all the patterned paper after cutting and machine stitched messily (optional).

Step 2 – From the “Essence” patterned paper remove the barcode and cut the “Shared A Moment” to 3.25” in length. Cut one 10” x 10” piece from the centre of the patterned paper. The remainder will be the background for the layout. From the 10” x 10” piece cut one 10” x 4” piece and one 10” x 6” piece. From the “Airy” patterned paper remove the barcode and cut the patterned paper to 10.75” x 10.75”. Adhere this piece to the background, centered. Image 1
Step 3 – From the “Savor” patterned paper remove the barcode and cut the “good……t” quote to 4” in length. Cut a 0.75” strip from the top and bottom of the patterned paper and trim one to 7” in length and the other to 7.5” in length. From the centre of the patterned paper roughly cut out the circle image, following the pattern lines. Adhere the striped reverse 10” x 6” piece cut out in Step 2 to the background, 2.5” from the top of the layout. Trim the script rub ons and apply one of the rub6ons to the top left and one to the bottom right of the layout. Image 2
Step 4 – Adhere the fussy cut circle piece onto the layout and slightly towards the left. I have only adhered it in the middle so as to allow for tucking in of the leaves and embellishments later.Add the bottom piece of the trimmed tag ephemera pieces as shown in Image 3. Adhere the 0.75” strips and quotes to the top left and bottom right of the layout.

Step 5 – Add the twine to the top of the trimmed tag. Adhere the trimmed tag, tab, and ephemera pieces to the layout. Image 6. Adhere the additional ephemera tag and then add more of the script and floral trimmed rub ons. Image 7
Step 6 – Mount photos onto the 10” x 4” piece cut out in Step 2, and on foam tape. Adhere to the layout then add the remaining ephemera pieces, some on foam tape for added dimension. Tuck the largest leaves underneath the circle paper, and on foam tape for added dimension. Layer the remaining trimmed leaves over the top. I have applied some of the remaining trimmed striped rub6ons to the top left and bottom right strips (optional). Add the “hello”, “love”, “more love” butterflies and dots from the Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets. Images 5, 8, 9, and 10.
Step 7 – Lastly add the journaling strips (optional). Image 8.
