Bike Ride Layouts with Quick Quotes Savannah Collection

Hello, Alicia with you today.  I created a couple of layouts with the new Savannah papers and Savannah Quotes and Phrases sheet.  I love the checkerboard pattern of Savannah 100 paper and found it a perfect accent to the bike ride photos.

While I love the checkerboard pattern, I found it too busy for the background and the light title really popped on the dark background.  Here are the steps to creating this layout:
  1. Use Savannah paper 100 dark side as the background
  2. Cut shape from Savannah paper 100 checkerboard side approximately 9"
  3. Cut photo mats to fit 3 photos to create .25" border
  4. Cut Savannah paper 103 to 1" x 12"
  5. Cut sentiment strip from Savannah Quotes and Phrases sheet
  6. Cut title from Savannah paper 102 light side
  7. Ink all edges generously with Midnight Confessions Powderpuff chalking ink
  8. Mount photos to mats
  9. Adhere all pieces to background, layer the shape off the page slightly and cut off excess
  10. Add washi tape and mosaic gems strategically to finish layout

To create the second page:
  1. Use Savannah paper 101 light side as background
  2. Cut banner sentiments and title strip from Savannah Quotes and Phrases sheet
  3. Using templates cut border from scrap pieces
  4. Cut mats for photos from Savannah paper 101 dark side
  5. Ink all edges generously with Midnight Confessions Powderpuff chalking ink
  6. Adhere border pieces and photos
  7. Layer washi tape under banner and title sentiments  area and other chosen area(s)
  8. Adhere banner and title sentiments

I ripped the washi tape for a grungy look.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Cut and ink all pieces then play around with the placement before adhering to background.
  • Use scraps when ever possible, on this layout I was able to use the same piece I cut the title from as a couple of the photo mats. Waste not, want not!
  • Don't be afraid to cut it up!  On the second page I cut the 12" sentiment strip in to usable sizes for my title placement.
