Today we’re happy to welcome our friend Mari Clarke to the blog today. Mari is still creating beautiful things with her September SCT Sampler until her October SCT Sampler arrives on her doorstep, and we think you’ll love the happy and beautiful layout that she is sharing with us today. We hope it will inspire you to pull out your SCT Sampler this weekend to get creative! 


Hello! It’s Mari here to share a new layout created with my September SCT Sampler. When your supplies and photos coordinate perfectly, a layout often comes together well. Take a look at my newest layout:


Stacking two 4” x 3” photos vertically on a layout creates many logical design options. Creating a column of photos allows for space on the right or left to hold a title, embellishment, and journaling!


Patterned paper makes a great horizontal line behind the photos, resulting in an “L” shape formation and a perfect niche for additional elements, like those beautiful die cuts included in the Sampler! 

Watch how I created this “L” formation in my process video:

The September Sampler was perfect for this project—the beautiful florals, a warm wood grain, gold touches, and a focus on home created the perfect page for these photos. 

Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope you get time to create with your SCT Sampler this weekend!
