Here's the 2nd-2 page layout that we made at my NEW Simply Scrappin' Club. I scraplifted this fabulous layout HERE by Nancy Kliewer. You can look at her SWEET blog HERE. Nancy made her pages before Stampin' Up! came out with the Scallop Edge Punch, so I can't even imagine how tricky it must have been for her to make the scalloped edges.
By the way, "Papillion" is the name of the town we lived in in Nebraska. Think "million" when you pronounce "Papillion". I think it's the French word for "butterfly", but of course when they say it, it would sound so nice!!
Here's how it looked before I added the photos, title & decorative elements.
Here's what you'll need from your Pina Colada SSK to make these pages:
2--Riding Hood Red 12x12x Textured Cardstock Pieces
2--So Saffron Dots DSP Sheets--taking note of the direction of the dots, cut 1 piece: 9x9.5 and cut 1 piece 9x10...IF for some reason, you don't cut them both going the same direction, do not despair, most of the dots will be covered by photos...it's okay...really!!
1--Multi Stripes DSP Sheet PLUS left over 1x12 piece from yesterday's pages.
2--Tangerine Tango Border Strips with the Scalloped Edge
Extra Not In Kit: Whisper White 12 x12---trim 2--1 1/4 x 12 strips and trim 1--1 3/8 x12 strip. Next use Scallop Edge Punch (or scallop edge scissors) & scallop one edge on each of the three strips.
To Assemble Pages:
1. Attach trimmed So Saffron Dots DSP pieces to Riding Hood Red 12x12, 1 1/4 inches from the top. The 9x9.5 piece goes on the LEFT page...with the 9 inch edge completely flush with the right hand edge of the cardstock. The 9x10 piece goes on the RIGHT page...with the 9 inch edge completely flush with the left hand edge of the cardstock.
2. Attach Tangerine Tango Scalloped Border Strips to opposite outside edges of each page. The scalloped edge was approximately 1/8 of an inch from the edge making the straight edge approximately 1/2 inch from the edge.
3. Adhere 1x12 inch Multistripe DSP on top of the 1 3/8 x12 piece you have already scalloped. The scalloped edge will just barely peek out from behind the Multistripes DSP. Now attach this piece next to the Tangerine Tango Border Strip on the RIGHT hand page with the white scallops on the LEFT side of the Multistripe DSP.
Now we come to the really "fun" part of the page. I know there must be a simpler way to accomplish this, but this is what I did to create the curve & have the scallops peeking out from underneath. Let me know if you know of the easier way! :) Just remember, you are only doing this for ONE scrapbook page, it's not like I'm asking you to do this on 100 pages!
4. To get the curved edge, I placed a small oval casserole dish on my Multistripes DSP. I measured the outer edges to make sure they would be approximately the same. They were about 5 3/4 inches from the edge of the paper. The center of the dish is approximately 2 1/8 from the edge of the center of the paper. I then used a pencil to lightly draw the curved edge & trimmed it out...does that make sense?? NO? See the photo below:
5. In order to get the scallops to bend, you have to do a little bit of tedious scissoring, but it's soooo worth it!! I used my Paper Snips to cut from the bottom straight edge up to about 1/8 from "valley" between the scallops. I trimmed one whole 12 inch strip, plus approximately 4-5 inches of the second strip. You can already see how the strips are curving just from being cut. See the photos below (you can click on any of the photos to get a larger picture):
6. Now you "get" to attach the scallop edge to the DSP. With the Tangerine Tango Floral DSP side showing, place a generous amount of your Dotto Adhesive along the ENTIRE CURVED EDGE...don't skimp! What I like about the Dotto Adhesive (aka Hermafix) is that it's strong enough to hold your scrapbook page elements together, but it's also not soooo sticky that you can't move things you have previously adhered...which comes in to play big time with putting this scallop edge down on the DSP. Starting at one edge at about the 3rd or 4th scallop in, start working your way around the curve. I think when I did it, I worked mainly from the back edge, putting the scallop down so I just couldn't see the DSP showing in the "valley". 12 inches will not cover the entire curve. That's why I had you cut a little bit into the other scallop strip. Once you've covered the entire curve. Trim off excess following the straight edge of the DSP and attach to the left side of the RIGHT page next to the Tangerine Tango Border Strip. See the photos below.
Ta-Dah!! You did it!! Whew!! Now, isn't that just the cutest page ever?? Since this post is so ridiculously long, I thought I'd re-post the completed pages, so you don't have to scroll back up to the top.
PS...Remember, you can adapt this layout to any colors & papers that you already have!
