Happy Friday! I’m here with February’s 1-2-3 Layout for you just in time for the weekend!
If you’re not familiar with my 1-2-3 Layouts, they use just 1 piece of double sided patterned paper, 2 pieces of Cardstock (or CM Album Pages) for the base, and we make the entire layout with just 3 cuts. Each month I give you a free printable with the sketch, cutting guide and a sample finished layout. You can download, print it and follow along with it to create a great two page layout. This month’s sketch has room for five photos, journaling, title and embellishments, but of course you can add more photos or journaling by changing it up to suit your needs. Here’s the sketch:
This month I’m using the newest collection from Creative Memories – Sorbet! It’s soooo delicious, with yummy colors and appetizing patterns and designs! It is a full collection with a Paper Pack, Stickers, Embellishments, a Slide-in Pack, a gorgeous foiled Album Cover and Fast2Fab Refill Pages. I’ll just be using one piece of this tasty paper and some embellishments today, but I’ve got quite a few more projects planned for this collection! But for now, grab a coffee or tea or glass of wine and sit back to see how fast the layout comes together!
I used the Watercolor Green ABC/123 Stickers for the title, and die-cuts from the Sorbet Embellishments as accents (which I popped up off the layout with Foam Squares for added dimension). I jotted a couple of lines of journaling with my Black Dual-Tip Pen to finish off the layout. After showing you how to make the cuts in the video, it only took another 15 minutes to complete the rest of the layout. The 1-2-3 process is so quick, and the fact that CM does all the hard work for us by coordinating papers and embellishments means we can get more done in less time! Love it! Here are a couple more photos:
All the products shown can be purchased on my CM website, and you can download your FREE copy of the sketch and cutting guide here so that you can refer to it as you create your own version of the layout. I’m so excited to see what you create – please feel free to share it on my Facebook Group page or leave a comment below!
