Ariana Layout Project 2 of 3

Happy Hump day crafty friends,
Hope your day is going well. Today I wanted to share my 2nd project featuring beautiful papers from the Ariana Paper Pack and the matching Ariana Chipboard Complements set. Here is what I came up with.

I created this one page layout using the Ariana collection as well as a piece of white cardstock and colonial white cardstock. This was a very easy layout. I used the colonial white cardstock to cut out the pretty frame die cut. I created the frame as part of the exclusive Ariana Layout elements SVG Cut file set. I used some of the Ariana Grey for the mats and the patterned papers are from the same collection. Following is a quick tip on how to get the most bang for your buck if you only have one sheet of paper. This is especially useful if you are going to be layering papers and don’t want to create extra bulk and of course if you have only one sheet of paper.

Quick Tip: Cutting A Frame from your paper for maximum use.

For the grey outer mat, I cut out a square 6x6. That means I left a 2” border.

Patterned paper cut out. First I trimmed this paper to 11.5 x 11.5. Next I cut out the center at 1.5” inches in from each side. This created a leftover square of 8.5 x 8.5”

Here are the two mats layered onto each other. The thick frame allows for the rest of the layout to be sturdily glued to the frame for support while still being able to use the cut out pieces as extras.

I used some foam tape to give them varying heights.
