Creating a layout in a snap

Happy Friday ladies! Who's ready for spring? I am so ready for winter to be over. It's been so cold! Anyway, I have another quick and easy layout to share with you. And it gets even better. I'm going to share with you, step-by-step how to create this layout! I pretty much skipped the patterned papers with half of my projects this month because I loved the exclusive cards that came in the "J'Adore" Clique Kit too much, not to use them. What do you think? They really help with creating a layout in a snap, and I'm going to prove it to you.

The first thing I did was grab the die cut cards that I wanted to use for my layout. Once I had them picked out, I moved them around the page until I was satisfied with the placement.

 
Then, I adhered the cards as shown onto white cardstock. I remembered that I had a few chipboard triangles leftover from my "Tailor Made" kit so I used one on my layout! 


Since the edge of the layout looked a bit flat, I decided to create a fun border using my washi tape! Just cover all four corners of the cardstock with the washi tape and you've got yourself a fun border. So easy.


Then I used a foam square to adhere my badge.


Next, I adhered my photo, acrylic heart, word strips to the layout. The foam heart came with the "Tailor Made" kit. I used scissors to cut a small triangle from a die cut card and adhered it to the bottom leftside of the photo using a foam square.

 
And that's it! Most of the time, the design of a layout takes the longest to create... once that's done, the layout can be created in a snap!
