Create A Layout Using A Diagonal Design | Erica Thompson

Hi friends! Erica here with you today sharing a 12×12 scrapbook layout using a diagonal design! I am having so much fun with the January 2020 kits and I wanted to showcase the beautiful papers in this kit!



I started by trimming off strips of pattern paper from the kit. Once I had a nice stack cut I ran each one through my sewing machine to add some texture to my layout.  I added even more texture by distressing the edges of the strips with my scissors. I added adhesive to the back of the strips and adhered them down to a piece of white cardstock at a diagonal



Once all my pieces were adhered down I added my photo to the layout. I tucked it in behind one of the strips. I began to embellish around the layout with pieces from the January Main Kit and pulled a couple pieces from the January 2020 Embellishment Kit like the fabric bows! This is the first time using them on a layout and I think they are the cutest! This diagonal design was so easy to create and I love how all the papers look together on the page.



I created a few different embellishment clusters around the page to help balance it out. For my journaling I used my WRMK typewriter and cut it out into small strips and placed under my photo. Here is a look at my completed layout!


I hope you enjoyed my layout today and it gives you inspiration! I would love to see you create a layout using a diagonal design! Tag us on Facebook or Instagram! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
