First I gather all of the kit contents and determine which papers and embellishments will best fit my photos.Once my supplies are determined, I start cutting out journaling cards from the Dear Lizzy patterned paper and play around with possible arrangements. Next, I punch out a few circles from various patterned papers to place in a visual triangle around my layout. After I have my papers and photos cut down to size, I start gluing everything down. This new Fiskars ProCision Trimmer is amazing (and offered at a really good price on Amazon). To add a little more visual interest to the page, I cut a strip of colorful triangles and adhere it just below the red line of the background paper. I then decide that there's no way I can make this layout without using the amazing "Live Creatively" stamp, so I find a spot for it and stamp down. As the embellishments start to come together, I add a handful of adhesive bling for color and texture. I also take the ribbon, fold it in half a few times (securing each fold with a little adhesive), and tuck it under my photo. I take advantage of the journaling prompt stickers and use the "hello, my name is" just underneath the green acetate letters. And finally, I hand write my journaling and call it good.
