Preppy Mackinac Island Vacation Scrapbook Page 1

PAGE ONE:

Print out your die cuts on white card stock .  Cut out the five die cuts shown on the page above.  I usually leave about 1/16″ of the white cardstock showing around the edge of each die cut giving it an extra boarder.  Our Mackinac Vacation title piece measures approximately 2″ x 8 1/2″.

Run adhesive down one of the 12″ sides of the black 1″ x 12″ paper and adhere this strip to the bottom of the 12″ x 3 1/2″ piece of colorful checkered paper leaving about 1/8″ visible.  Adhere to the top of yellow 12″ x 12″ paper.  This little bit of black really helps the pages pop.  I love adding bits of black to my paper projects and in decorating. 🙂

Adhere Mackinac Vacation title piece to a piece of black cardstock creating a 1/8″ matting around it.  Adhere to the middle of the checkered strip. 

Adhere the 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ lime piece approximately 1 1/4″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left edge of the yellow page.  Line up the  4 1/2″ red square piece with the top of the lime mat and in approximately 1″ from the right edge and adhere to page.

 Gently hold the lengthwise edges together on one end of  the 5″ x 1 1’/2″ red piece of paper and cut as shown above to create dove tail.  Repeat past step on the 4 1/2″ x 2″ piece of blue paper and on the 6″ x 2 1/2 ” piece of blue paper. Adhere the red dove tail piece to bottom left edge of the yellow 1″ x 12″ page approximately 1/4″ up from bottom.Mackinac Island stickers

Adhere the 6″ dove tail blue piece to the right edge of yellow 12″ x 12″ page approximately 1/2″ from bottom edge.  Add the die cuts shown above slightly overlapping each other.

Wrap 4″ strip of red ribbon around one of the ends of the 3″ x 12″  piece of lime paper and adhere ends to the back.  Adhere this lime strip of paper on the left edge approximately 3/4″ in.  

Adhere one 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of red paper approximately 1 1/4″ up from bottom and 2 1/4″ from left edge.  Adhere another 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of red paper 1/2″ above the first red mat.
