Snail hunting – Two page

Snail hunting – Two page layout

Today we have a stunning two-page layout by our November DT Member, Lynette Jacobs.  We love the photos of the kids with the snails, and how she used the circles!


Step one: Cut two cardstock to 30cm x 30cm

Step two: Cut a 29cm diameter circle from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Bouquet. Cut a 10 x 10 cm from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Traditions for your journaling block.


Step three: Cut three strips by two. I cut along the pattern of the black lacy paper of the Crate paper: Portrait Collection: Tradition. I then split the lacy paper in two halves to go across the page. The other two strips I edged with a border punch.

Step four: Cut circles various sizes and lay out your basic layout to get the placement of the various circles.


Step five: Paste down the large circle with 7,5 cm on the left page. Paste down the strips, bottom strip is approximately 11 cm from the bottom. Then paste down the circles according to your placements.


Step six: I added some very old “raindrops” by Cloud 9 Design.

Step seven: I coloured the chipboard alphabet with a black marker.
