"Fish Stories" Scrapbook Layout with KellyCraft™ and Spellbinders®

Project by Cindi Bisson

The KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square made aligning the multiple components of this layout easy to achieve.  I created two versions of this layout, the instructions for the first are below, and the second is almost identical, except some elements are reversed.


KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square
Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine 
Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ Numbers and Letters
Spellbinders® Impressabilities™Circles
Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Imperial Gold - Gold Elements
Bright green and orange white core cardstock
Orange and white number patterned paper
Blue & green plaid patterned paper
Grey measuring tape patterned paper
Craft Attitude™ Scrapbooking Attitude™ 
Glue stick
Making Memories Foam Stamps
Plaid® Folk Art® Acrylic Paint - Tangerine 
Paintbrush, sandpaper, black marker
Glue Dots®
Westcott® Paper Trimmer
Copper mini brads, copper label holder


Cut 12 x 12” measuring tape patterned paper in half diagonally.  Use
KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to straightly mount onto green background paper, approximately 1/4” from top edge using Glue Dots®.

Use Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to align strip of orange and white number paper straightly vertically approximately 1/2” from right edge and mount.

Emboss 5 x 7” bright green cardstock with Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine and Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ Numbers and Letters.

Lightly sand to expose some white areas.

Emboss orange cardstock with Grand Calibur® and Spellbinders® Impressabilities™Circles.

From embossed orange cardstock, cut 2 corner embellishments with Grand Calibur® and  Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Imperial Gold - Gold Elements.

Lightly sand to expose some white areas.

Type fish words in various fonts, add fish images, REVERSE TEXT, and print onto Scrapbooking Attitude™.

Type “Sometimes”  and “are true”, REVERSE TEXT and print onto Scrapbooking Attitude™.

Cut plaid patterned paper to 4 1/4 x 11”.               

Apply tangerine paint to foam letter stamps, stamp onto plaid paper using
KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to align lettering (*Note - I used two different sets of letter stamps so letters are not all of uniform size, but aligning the bottom edges of the foam stamps ensured straight placement.)

Trim title wording, fish words and fish from Scrapbook Attitude™.  Apply glue stick to each title word (Sometimes, and, are true) and mount above and beneath foam stamped wording using Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to ensure alignment.

Use Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to align three small copper brads next to “are true” on title. 

Mount title piece onto layout, using laser square to ensure alignment, approximately 1” from top edge, at right edge of paper.

Mount each fish word and fish image over strip of orange printed paper using Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square. 

Cut mat from light blue cardstock approximately 1/8” larger on all sides than green embossed photo mat.   Mount embossed piece to mat using Glue Dots®.

Add embossed die cut photo corners to top left and bottom right corners, mounting with Glue Dots®.

Add 4 x 6” photo, and mount to left bottom of page. 

Cut strip of blue cardstock approximately 1/2” x 6”.  Mount beneath left edge of smaller photo, and mount onto page overlapping larger photo. 

Add copper label holder over photos.  Add name & date to scrap of plaid paper and mount in label holder.
