Hi everyone. Heather Leopard is here with a Father’s Day scrapbook layout and free Silhouette cut file. This time, I’m going for a more masculine vibe for this week’s theme, which is all about dad.
Father’s Day scrapbook layout tutorial
To get started you’ll need to punch 1-inch squares or download my free Silhouette cut file HERE.
I used 8 different patterned papers plus some white cardstock (for the background and squares). Arrange them randomly in a diagonal across and down your page.
TIP: I laid squares out in my Silhouette software and then cut a template for them, as pictured above in blue. I placed the blue cutout over my white cardstock background. Then, I added dabs of glue inside the squares and placed the patterned paper squares.
Let dry completely before removing the template. This ensure the lines stay as even as possible.
If you’d like, add machine or hand stitching. I chose to do straight lines at a diagonal going both ways.
Next, add your photos. If you are using my template, I made it so you can use two 2″x2″ photos and one 3″x3″ photo.
Add your title right over the squares, between your photos. Next, add embellishments, such as cardstock stickers, puffy stickers, die cuts and more. Finish it off with journaling. I plan to add my journaling around the edge of the layout, or perhaps in the empty squares. I’m still debating. Another alternative is that you could also do one less photo and use one of the photo spaces for jouranaling.
