Step by Step LO Instructions

Materials needed:
1 5x7 photo
1 piece of cardstock for matting
2 piece of cardstock for border edges
3 pieces of patterned paper
2 alphas for mix and match
Misc stamps
Pen for edges
Circle cutters or bowls for tracing

Use one sheet of pattern paper for your base. Cut one 6.5 inch circle from one patterned paper and another 5 inch circle from the other. Adhere those as shown in example. Mat the photo on cardstock and adhere as shown. Using the other cardstock you can cut the borders by hand if you like. I used precut bazzill edges but they won’t be hard to do on your own. Then using your pen, draw stitch lines on each border. Adhere those. If you have a stamp you like, stamp 3 images as shown. Then mix and match your title and you are done. The open space in the circle is the perfect place to put some journaling.
