T his Poinsettia scrapbook layout could be used for all kinds of holiday pictures. The red velvet poinsettia makes a pretty embellishment that sets the theme for the layout.
Base: The print pieces are attached to 12 X 12 cardstock. I used white, but you could use whatever solid color you have.
From the Poinsettia Place paper pack, I used:
One 12 X 12 print with Soft Suede back ground covered in pine cones
One 12 X 12 print with Garden Green back ground covered in small pine boughs
From these each paper cut
a strip ¾ X12
a strip 3 ½ X 12
a strip 7 ¾ X 12
From Plush Poinsettia Speciality paper pack, I used
One 3 X 12 strip of paper with flocked poinsettias
Flower & leaves:
From Red Velvet paper pack, I cut the 3 pieces of the Poinsettia. You can cut and emboss the poinsettia pieces at the same time. It is easier to line up if you lay the embossing piece (the center) down on paper and then lay the cutting piece (outline of flower) over the embossing piece. Die cut one of each of the 3 pieces.
Die cut one of each of the leaves from Garden Green cardstock, embossing and cutting at the same time as you did for the poinsettia pieces.
Die cut flower center from gold foil.
Title box & Journal Box:
For the Title box & Journal box I used Stitched Rectangles. If you don’t have the Stitched Rectangles, you could cut desired shapes with a paper cutter.
The Title box has a mat cut from Garden Green using the rectangle that measures 1 ¾ X 3 ⅝. The white center measures 1 ¼ X 3 ¼.
The Journal box has a Garden Green mat that measures 3 ⅜ X 4 ⅞, a Soft Suede mat that measures 3 X 4 ¼, and a white center that measures 2 ⅝ X 4.
Attach ¾ X 12 garden green strip to top of base cardstock
Attach 3 ½ X 12 soft suede strip next to garden green strip
Attach 7 ¾ X 12 garden green strip next to soft suede strip
Attach 3 X 12 flocked Poinsettia strip centered over soft suede strip. I put adhesive behind the poinsettias so it wouldn’t show.
Assemble poinsettia by attaching the middle flower piece to the large flower piece, then smaller flower piece to the middle flower piece, making sure the pieces are not exactly on top of each other. Attach a gold center to the center of the flower. Attach leaves to each side of the flower. Attach flower to right side of flocked Poinsettia strip.
