Step by Step

by Nathalie

Note: If you do not want to make an 8.5X11 page, this design can easily be adapted to a 12X12 page, just change the measurements slightly.

- 8.5”X11” patterned paper for the background
- 8”X10.5” piece of cardstock (I used kraft)
- one photo cropped to 5.5”X4”
- 2 pieces of the same patterned paper cut to 4”X2 1/8”
- 1 strip of patterned paper measuring ½”X 9 ¾”
- 1 strip of paper for the journaling 1 ¾”X9 ¾ “
- 1 Heidi Swapp damask sticker (in white) cut in half
- 4 photo corners
- alpha stickers for your title
- a few flowers and brads

1/ Glue the cardstock to the background paper then frame the photo with the two pieces of paper (the 4”X2 1/8” pieces) on each side of it.
2/Print or handwrite your journaling on the wider strip of patterned paper (make sure you leave enough room to tuck it under the other strip and for the photo corners.
3/ Place the two strips of paper under your photo but do not glue them until you position and adhere the damask sticker that you previously cut in half. Place the photo corners.

4/ Finally adhere everything and add your title with various stickers and embellish with a couple of flowers and brads.
