Explorer – Layout by Lisa Gregory

Hello Lovelies.
I am excited to share with you, 2 of 49 and Market’s new collections. Vintage Artistry Everywhere and the perfect match, Color Swatch Toast. The beauty with Toast is, it will go with EVERYTHING!!!! I used one of the papers as my base, and everything else just naturally followed. My granddaughter LOVES exploring. Even if it is in my own backyard. I have the perfect photos for the Everywhere collection. This explore and travel themed collection is extraordinary…

Explorer - Layout by Lisa Gregory

I started by machine sewing around the edges of the Toast Paper A. I used 2 colors that matched the colors in the layout. Then I mounted the paper into a 12×12 piece of corrugated cardboard using Mod Podge. I inked the edges with distress ink. Once I had the placement of my photo mat and Filmstrips, I marked it with a pencil, and used the Everywhere Rub On Transfer Set around the pencil lines, then worked my design inside of the rub-ons.

I designed the photo mat, by using the Ticket Essentials in Toast, and pasted them behind the photo reel from the Everyday Cluster kit. I used the frame from the same kit, adhered it to a small piece of corrugated cardboard, and placed my photo in the middle, then placed the framed photo in the middle of the reel. I love the envelope pockets from the Everywhere Essential File Set. I put one together to tuck the reel into. I inked the edges with distress ink. I placed the adorable banner under the photo. The staples look so real!!!

I chose the flowers, Garden Petals in Salmon and Royal Posies in Ocean Jade. They are the perfect match. I used the Everywhere Laser cuts to cluster on the left side of the layout. I also used the Essential Filmstrips in Toast and a strip of Everywhere Fabric Tape in the cluster. I placed a small heart button from the Cluster Kit tied some single-layer jute through it and added a tiny flower. I topped it with a tiny Laser Cut butterfly in Toast.

To the left of the layout, I layered Essential Filmstrip with an Everywhere Laser cut ticket strip. And in the side of each space in the Filmstrip, I placed a photo from Charlotte’s adventure in the woods. I adhered a couple of word strips on the front of the Essential File, placing a small strip of chipboard underneath.
