Supplies: Rise & Shine (370004) – Ella Paper, (370016) – Madison Paper, (370020) – Mia Paper, (370008) – Stella Paper, (370031) – Hanna Letter Stickers, (370044) – Shaped Paper Clips, (370029) – Alyx Thickers, (370052) – Scarlett Dies; True Stories (370745) – Wooden Buttons; Cardstock (AC71273) – 8.5×11 White; DIY Shop (366900) – Mini Stapler; Pen (PP62383) – Precision Pens 5/PKG; DIY Shop (366900) – Mini Stapler; Die Cut Machine – Silhouette Cameo, Cuttlebug

How to: Print a photo at approximately 8×10.5". Cut a title from the photo using a die cut machine or a kraft knife. (I used the “Offset Tool” of the Cameo to create an outline of my title letters, choosing “Internal".) Remove the cut letters and letter outlines from the photo and adhere the photo to a sheet of white 8.5×11" cardstock, centering it. Discard the die cut letter outlines or save them for another project. Adhere the solid die cut letters within each of the negative letter spaces that were cut from the photo. Add foam Thickers below the die cut title. Using a banner craft die and a manual die cut machine, cut a banner shape from patterned paper. Add a wooden button to the banner, write journaling, and adhere it to the top of the page. Use number stickers below the banner for the date. Hand write journaling directly on the photo towards the bottom of the layout. Trim narrow strips of paper from three Rise & Shine papers and overlap them below the level of the journaling. Use a strong craft glue to adhere a shaped paper clip above the journaling.


Have a fantastic weekend filled with sunshine and laughter, and scrapping of course! See you next week!
