Roost Bonus Formula Sketch

The Roost Bonus Formula creates a two-page spread from just five sheets of paper. Creating a layout is simple when you follow the steps below:

  1. Gather five coordinating papers (a mix of prints and plains).
  2. Follow the cutting diagrams and instructions on the printable document.
  3. Dry fit the trimmed pieces onto the base papers, using the sketch as your guide.
  4. Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, assemble the layout using your favorite adhesive.
  5. Select photos and crop to fit the mats.

Roost Bonus Layout - Karen

To replicate my pages, use the following paper assignments from the Roost collection: Brown (Paper A), Brick (Paper B), one Taupe Metallic (Paper C), and two Card Kit Print (Paper D).

Roost Bonus Formula Layout - Karen

The rustic floral elements on the Roost print pair beautifully with black and white photos from my son's wedding.

Shift the 2x2 Brick mats a bit to the right. Center a Legacy silk flower onto the top mat. Crop a vertical photo to fit the space below. (Our handy 8x8 grid ruler is indispensable for measuring and cropping photos!) Finish with a wood word (Crewel & Unusual 02.16).

Use a needle-tipped applicator filled with bookbinding glue to adhere the large wood word (Adirondacks 05.17) at the top of the page. (You'll need to shift placement of the 3x2 mat to accommodate it.) Trim the Taupe Metallic strip into a banner shape; add journaling. Adhere a trio of silk flowers to the 2x2 Brick mats.

September Bonus Formula Layout - Tricia

To create a layout like Tricia's, gather the following papers: Brown (Paper A), Card Kit Print (Paper B), Brick (Paper C), and two Blue Plains (Paper D).

Tricia also chose to fill the open space between the 2x2 and 4x6 mats with a vertical photo. Tuck name tags from the event into the lower left corner of the page.

Journal directly onto the layout below the 2x2 squares.

Even though Tricia and I both incorporated many of the same papers in our layouts, I think you'll agree the finished pages look very different.
