Worth It Step by Step by Fran Tynan

A ‘collage-y’ layout-“Worth It” by Fran

Try adding some different elements to your page and layer a few things up to make a very eclectic/collage-y looking page. This style can suit shabby chic or even very grungy pages  – so it’s very versatile no matter the subject you are scrapping.   Boy, girl, vintage-show us your favourite collage looking pages!


  • Studio Calico Autumn Press die cut paper
  • Polka Dot-Pink Studio Calico Autumn Press paper, Scarf
  • Studio Calico Die Cut chipboard tags-Autumn Press
  • Studio Calico Scrap Paper trim-Autumn Press
  • Pink Paislee Expressions wood shop alphabet-wood chip
  • Scrapware chipboard-bookplates
  • Kaiser 13th Hour acetate shapes

Step One – Cut your Studio Calico “Scarf” paper to 12″ x 9″ and your Die Cut Polka Dot-Pink paper to 8.75 x 11.75″.   Adhere the die cut paper to the ‘Scarf’ paper.

Step Two – Adhere your photos so that they are running down the centre of the page, leaving a small gap so that you can put some paper strips across the page about 2/3 down. This can even be done across the photo if need be if it doesn’t cover anything important up.

Step Three – To make my title stand out more, I added some masking tape along the right hand side of my photo strip.

Adhere a Kaiser 13th hour acetate shape to one of your photos to highlight a piece of it.

Add your title down the right hand side of your photos, using Pink Paislee’s Expression Wood Shop alphas-Wood Chip.  I’ve also added a couple of heart pins to my page.

Step Four – Take your Studio Calico Die Cut Chipboard tags-Autumn Press and add some randomly along the left hand side of your photos either as embellishments or journaling spots.  I’ve machine-stitched mine on to add extra texture.

Step Five – Add some journaling and back your whole page onto another piece of patterned paper or cardstock of your choice, so that it fits into your page protector easily.

I’ve used an older October Afternoon paper just because I liked the look of the newsprint.
