Uniquely Creative Products Used:
NOTE: You need to use a strong glue for your Rosettes. Kylie prefers to use a hot glue gun for creating them as it is very strong and dries instantly, making it a faster process.
1. If using a hot glue gun, switch the gun on in a child and pet friendly space. Placing some baking paper underneath will help catch any glue drips.
Remove the branding strip from the Excitement paper. Trim a sheet of Happiness paper to measure 10” x 10” and distress the edges. Adhere centred over the Excitement paper.
2. Select two medium size Rosette dies. Cut twice for each different die. I have used Sparkle and Gifting papers.
Select two small Rosette dies. Cut once for each die. I have used Anticipation and Gifting papers.
Using one of the larger circular ‘centre’ dies from the medium die pack, cut four from a scrap of paper (these will be for your backing).
Carefully fold each strip back and forth along the score lines in an accordion manner. Use a bone folder once complete to ensure crisp folds. Apply a small amount of hot glue down the end of one of the strips and adhere to its matching second strip. Clamp together with the craft clamps to hold in place while it sets. This will only take several seconds with hot glue.
3. Remove clamps and place a small amount of hot glue down on one end of this strip. Bring it around to the other end to form a circle. Clamp together until the glue sets.
4. Take one of the circles you cut as a backing and apply some hot glue to it. Place your Rosette over the top and use your finger to press it down onto the backing to form a tight, sharp Rosette flower. Hold for a few seconds until the glue sets. Repeat this process until all 4 Rosettes are made. NOTE: You will only have the one strip to adhere together for your small Rosette dies.
Create a centre for each Rosette by either cutting the large or small circle die from the medium Rosette die pack or by layering one of the Mixed Lace Flowers and Christmas Holly Flowers. Set all aside for now.
5. Cut one of the strips from the Surprises paper and trim the length to 10” long. Distress the edges a little. Cut the Gnome border strip from the Wonderment paper and trim to a 10” length. Distress the edges a little. Adhere both strips together to form a layered border and adhere towards the base of the inside square on the background page.
Adhere three of the Rosettes to the left side of this strip and combine some of the Creative Cuts.
Use one of the large background rub-ons in the opposite diagonal corner. To do this, carefully cut out the rub on graphic you wish to use. Peel the backing paper and place the image on your page. Gently rub with the paddle pop stick provided. Peel away the top layer sheet.
6. Create a cluster with Creative Cuts and the remaining Rosette over the rub-on image.
7. Trim your photos to size (I have used two 3” x 4” photos, backed on two 3.25” x 4.25” pieces of Sparkle paper). Distress all edges.
Adhere the photos above the border strip on the layout.
To complete your page, add some extra Creative Cuts for balance to the right side of the border strip. Freehand draw a border around the 10” square with a Fineliner pen.
