Our Backyard Layout

I love to create memories in our own backyard!


Use 2 sheets of kraft 12x12 cardstock as page bases. Use brown cardstock as mat for center photos and patterned paper.

Adhere photos (2 4x6's per each side of your layout), and then strips of patterned paper underneath. I also added a pennant banner sticker.

Trim around edge of photos/patterned paper so that a small border of brown cardstock still shows.

Adhere to each side of kraft layout base.

Use No. 5 microtip scissors to trim tree "trunk" out of brown cardstock. Adhere to left side of page.

Machine stitch around edge. Use Ultra ShapeXpress tool and super sized circle templates to trim out two shades of green circles for tree "top".

Layer and adhere and machine stitch around edge. Adhere to top of tree using foam adhesive.
