It's time to learn more about June's Regatta pages. If you have occasions, vacations, and celebrations coming up this summer, this is the right kit for you!
First, if you'd like to take a look at the entire June collection, check out my unboxing video where I spill all the beans!
If you're looking at all the layouts below and thinking, "I couldn't possibly re-create this," have no fear. We'll equip you with printed instructions and a video workshop to help you navigate our efficient method.
And here they are, in all their nautical glory . . . the Regatta pages!
Layouts 1 & 2
Check out the circular die cuts we've included in your kit! They provide a lovely "pop" to the page design, and we'll even show you how to use the "negative space" of the 12x12 sheet to enhance your layouts. Here, an open circle is placed beneath the cutapart sentiment, and the smaller circle is added with foam adhesive. Finish off the title by placing a small enamel dot in each corner.
On the upper right corner of the facing page, thread an open die cut circle onto the striped border.
Layouts 3 & 4
Your kit includes three banner-shaped tags to give pages a perfect nautical accent. Jacqueline designed a graphic or journaling prompt for each tag. Even though you can't see it, there are two separate pieces of ribbon attached to the tag. Loop a small piece of red ribbon through the hole at the top, and tape a second piece to extend past the bottom edge.
Layouts 5 & 6
We found some nifty d-ring buckles in red and blue and thought they'd make a fun addition to your pages. (If you decide to make a handmade book with another Regatta kit, the buckle is perfect for a cover closure!) Below, check out how the buckle is connecting two pieces of satin ribbon on the cutapart. Finish with two text cutaparts and one tag-shaped sentiment topped with a twine bow. The light blue piece extending past the left edge of the tag is a small "scrap" rescued after the paper trimming process.
Layouts 7 & 8
The paper trimming instructions include tips on how to portion out the negative space of the die cut sheet onto the pages. Here, nest the strip onto a Medium Blue layer. Apply adhesive only to the left and right edges of the strip, leaving it possible to slide a photo behind the opening. If you don't have a picture for the spot, think about adding a stamped image. It's also great spot for sunset photos! Apply a thin stripe of bookbinding glue along the outside edge of the Medium Blue layer with a needle-tipped applicator and cover with twine. Once dry, the ends can be trimmed with scissors.
All of the Regatta pages have something fun and interesting to offer. I can't wait to show the remaining details during the workshop video. See you there!
