Step x Step – Colour Blocking by Fran Tynan

Step x Step – Colour Blocking by Fran Tynan

Do you like the look of colour-blocked layouts? Why not use the outside “frame” part of a die-cut sheet to easily do your measuring for you?


  • Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup papers- “Half Pound Blossoms” ,”Fresh Cilantro””Corn Kernals”, “Cornmeal”
  • Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup 12 x 12 die cut shapes
  • Girls Paperie Kitch paper – Gingham Stripe  (not pictured)
  • White cardstock
  • Masking tape
  • Font: GF Halda Normal
    NB: Jillibean Soup Woodgrain alpha are in the pic but I didn’t end up using them as I went with a quote instead.

Step One: Take your Jillibean Soup 12 x 12 Die Cut shapes “Blossom Soup” and pop all the die cuts out of it.

Step Two: Put blocks of patterned paper behind each window to see what colours will look best for your LO. This is a great way of using up scraps. I haven’t filled in all my windows as you will see it in the final LO-I’ve just filled in the top and bottom rows.

Step Three: After cutting out your blocks of paper, stick them to a backing piece of cardstock in the right positions, using the die cut sheet as a guide. Stick your die cut sheet down on top on the colour blocks.

Step Four: Add a wide strip of Girls Paperie Kitch “Gingham Stripe” paper across the middle as shown. I’ve also added a strip of masking tape just because I love it! Lol.

Step Five: Add some embellishments, title and journaling and you’re finished. I’ve used the some of the Jillibean Soup die cuts that I popped out of the sheet-they are just awesome and you get so many on the sheet.
