Step 1 - Choose your photo(s).
Step 2 - Choose your color.
Step 3 - Grab two pieces of cardstock and two pieces of patterned paper in chosen color.
Step 4 - Choose several embellishments and a set of letter stickers in chosen color. (For my brown layout [above], I chose glitter tape, buttons, doilies, and two sets of letter stickers!)
Step 5 - Mat photos on cardstock.
Step 6 - Use one sheet of cardstock as background.
Step 7 - Layer patterned papers and photos on background.
Step 8 - Add embellishments, title, and journaling. (For my blue layout [below], I chose glitter tape, bling, and a set of letter stickers. I also used several dimensional travel stickers that matched my colors and theme.)
There are, of course, many ways of creating these layouts. For example, it's not necessary to use a cardstock background each time or to mat the photos. However, this simple formula works for me, and I always like the results.
