“Hello, G45 Crafters!

Today I would like to share with you a 12×12 layout. Years ago, before I started creating mini albums all my albums were filled with 12×12 pages. I still remember how much I enjoyed making them. It has been so long since I have made one. Today’s project is perfect for all of you that still enjoy making these kinds of layouts.





Take a piece of paper and cut it at  11-⅞’’ x 11-⅞’’.

Take a piece of 12×12 cardstock.

Adhere the paper to the cardstock.



Cut a piece of (Patterns & Solids) paper at 4’’ x 11-⅝’’.

Cut a piece of (Woodland Friends) paper at 3-⅞’’ x 11-½’’.



Adhere (Woodland Friends) paper to (Patterns & Solids) paper.

Adhere both pieces to (Be Clever) paper, 1’’ from the left edge.



Take (Patterns & Solids) paper and cut it to 6-½’’ x 3-¾’’.

Adhere the paper ⅝’’ from the top edge of the page.



Take (Be Carefree) paper and cut it to 11’’ x 4’’.

Center the paper 1/16’’ from edges of the (Patterns & Solids) paper.



Cut a piece of cardstock at 2-½’’ x 10’’.

Cut a piece of (Be Kind) paper at 2-⅜’’ x 9-⅞’’.

Adhere the paper to the cardstock. Center the piece ⅜’’ from edges of the (Be Carefree) paper.



Cut a piece of (Patterns & Solids) paper at 6’’ x 8-¾’’.

Center the paper ⅝’’ from the left edge of the (Be Kind) paper.

Cut out a border and place it to the upper section of the (Be Carefree) paper.



For the mat, cut (2) pieces of cardstock.

Cut pink cardstock at 9-⅜’’ x 7-⅛’’.

Cut brown cardstock at 9-½’’ x 7’’.

Adhere brown cardstock to a pink piece of cardstock.



Cut (2) pieces of (Be Beautiful) paper at 9-⅛’’ x ½’’ .

Center them to the top and bottom sections of the cardstock.



Cut (2) photo mats at 4’’ x 5-¾’’.

Center them to each side of the mat, between both (Be Beautiful) papers.

Cut a piece of (Woodland Friends) at 1’’ x 5-¾’’.

Adhere the paper between both photo mats.



Center the mat to the page.

Take a chipboard element and center it to the top section of the mat, between both photo mats.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
