I love what you can do with the 12x12 Notations papers by Teresa Collins Designs

I love everything you can do with these papers! You can leave them in their original state to create a Stunning layout or you can some color to make it pop! Here are two examples I created for you to see them both ways!

Here is the layout in the paper's natural state: This layout means so much, it is a photo of Danny's Grandfather, I love this photo of him.

Paper: Take Note, Alphabet (2 sheets), Rulers, Music, Tags,
Blingage: Zachs Bookplate
Misc: Black cardstock, black paint, Thermoweb 3d foam squares, numbers from Notations Kit.


Preparing your page components:

Cut the following pieces from your papers:
·         Punch out the letters POP from the alphabet paper.
·         Matt the word “pop” on black cardstock and place on far left of large oval frame from the tags paper.
·         Cut the strip of fleur de lis from the side B of Music paper and matt the stip in black cardstock.
·         Matt your photo on Black Cardstock.
·         Cut the bottom piece from the top of the words Remember this off of the Take note paper
·         Paint Zachs Book plate with black paint and rub off as much as you can before it dries.

Assembling your page:
1.       Adhere photo to the Ruller paper
2.       Adhere the Fleur de lis strip 1 inch from top
3.       Place framed word pop on the right – cut the part off that overhangs – line up the last “P” even with the edge of right side of page. Adhere to page using 3d foam squares.
4.       Adhere the remember this that you cut out from the take note paper to bottom of page.
5.       Using the numbers from the notations kit center along the bottom strip of take notes paper.
6.       Place Zach’s book plate over the date.

Here is the second layout with lots of color:

Paper: Damask (2 sheets), Music, Tags,
Blingage: Black Brad from Sports Edition II, Donna’s Gems
Misc: Black cardstock, Cream cardstock, Grey/blue Cardstock Thermoweb 3d foam squares, numbers from Notations Kit. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door. Numbers from Notations Kit.


Preparing your page components:

Cut the following pieces from your papers:
·         Cut 1/8 from all sides of Damask paper.
·         Cut out “memories” from Tag Paper and matt onto black cardstock
·         Double Matt your photo – once in black(3/8) and then in cream (1/8)
·         Punch out bird journal card from tags paper.
·         Punch out photo corners from music paper
·         Cut dot strip from the side b of music paper
·         Cut harlequin strip from bottom of your 2nd page of damask paper
·         Choose your date numbers and matt onto black cardstock.

Inking your Damask page and bird journal tag (optional)
Page: I only inked about two inches along top and bottom and an inch on the sides. Start on the edges moving inward using dried marigold. Using a small amount around edges only (not moving in on the page with the ink – just giving the edge some color) I used Barn Red… a little goes a long way so easy does it. Then I used worn lipstick to blend the barn red and orange to give that gradient look from the red to orange. I did the same thing on the tag just in smaller doses.

Assembling your page:
1.       Adhere your matted photo to the center of your page.
2.       Adhere the small dots strip along the top of the matted photo. (cut the strip to length.
3.       Adhere the harlequin strip to the bottom (cut the strip to length.)
4.       Adhere your journaling tag to bottom right of page.
5.       Using the 3d foam squares add your date to your journaling tag, also adhere your Memories with the foam squares to the top left keeping the left side even with your photo.
6.       Add your large black brad to the right of the words Memories
7.       Cut three of the black gems from Donna’s gems and place onto the harlequin (I spaced mine every other one)
8.       Adhere entire layout to cardstock.

There you go, I hope you enjoy!
