How to: Punch shapes out of your favorite coordinated patterned papers. For this layout I chose papers with color variations in mind. Use a ruler and pencil to trace faint guidelines on cardstock for easy placement of the shapes. Adhere to the page. Use the same lines as a guide for sewing. Flick black and yellow ink in a diagonal across the page. Embellish with stickers, resin bows, veneer, etc. Cut a chalkboard label and stick to the top and bottom edges of the layout. Doodle lines alone each side of those labels to form a border on top and bottom. Layer the photo with a tag, glassine bag, and clothespins and adhere to layout. Add the title and journaling.
