Laughing Lola - Monthly Workshop

This paper is awesome from the satin paper clip bows to the printed gems the possibilities are endless. Here is my take on the workshop on the go.

Workshop Layout 1 - featured in the workshop kit

Modifications to the original layout:
  • Used the Laughing Lola Purple B&T paper for Accent 1 & 2 (two bottom pieces) 
  • Used a 7x5 photo on the right page 
  • Double matted all photos using Laughing Lola purple and black 1/8” wide for the 5x7 photo and 1/16” for the 4x3 photos 
  • Ink distressed pieces with Slate 
  • Ink distressed photos with Black 
  • Stamp flower image in the left corner of the base page and the right corner of the right using Slate 
  • Using Bamboo cardstock instead of the Laughing Lola Gold for stamped images 
  • Used Black mini medley instead of Black Hem
Workshop Layout 2 - Make It from Your Heart vol.1 pattern 6
Assembling details: 
  • Use information on page 16 of Make It from Your Heart Volume 1. Pattern 6. 
  • Combine the following pieces and cut using Bamboo or Laughing Lola Gold. 8-1/4” x 6-1/8” for the left side and 8-1/4” x 8” for the right side (optional, it was just easier to work with one piece) 
  • (Double check the actual size of your 4x6 photo as some sizes vary, adjust the width accordingly). 
  • Cut leopard print zip strip at 7" 
  • Round two corners of D, F, and K, if desired 
  • Sponge-distress edges of pieces with Slate ink 
  • Sponge-distress edges of photo with Black StazOn ink
  • Use the Laughing Lola Dimensional Complements
Workshop Layout 3 - Make It from Your Heart vol.2 pattern 15

Assembling details: 

1. Use diagram from the MIFYH vol.2 booklet page 34;
2. Using Whisper cardstock for your bases;
3. Ink distress all pieces including photos using Slate;
4. Starting from the bottom working your way up the page by layering your cut B&T papers and Black Shimmer Tape, add the last B&T paper flush at the top of the page and insert your last piece of Black shimmer tape. This last piece of tape will overlap slightly.
5. I added one extra piece (the decorative border) beside piece G and Q
6. All photos have a 1/16” mat using Gypsy cardstock
