Your photos

1. Choose 2 matching pieces of 4 ½ x 6 ½” patterned paper from the paper stack that coordinate with your project. Glue them to the 12 x 12” cardstock with the one on the right side about 2 ½” from the bottom and the one on the left side about 1 ½” from the top.
2. Trim your photos so that they fit together as a collage. I used 5 photos on mine with the sizes ranging from 3 ¼ x 4” to 4 ¾ x 4”. You have to decide the sizes based on your photo. Don’t cut off any important part of the picture. Remember: only you can decide what is important to you. Lay them on the scrapbook paper to see which grouping looks good to you. You can certainly copy my grouping is that works for you. When you are happy with your grouping, adhere.

3. Stamp the 3 children’s images on white cardstock with green ink. Trim around the outside of the images. You can take time to color the images if you wish but I thought that all the green here looked good without extra coloring. Place the images on 3 sides of the paper, around the photos, and adhere.

4. Do hand lettering for your title and journaling. You can find several examples of hand lettering in current issues of Card Maker Magazine that you can find at news stands.

Make larger lettering for your title. On mine my title is simply my grandbaby’s name and birthdate. Make that lettering with a darker green marker. Below that, do your journaling in Basic Grey marker.

5. Attach this cardstock to the bottom left section of your page.
