Step by Step
Trim purple cardstock to measure 8.5x11" (if you normally scrap in 12x12 simply layer this onto a contrasting 12x12 sheet). Round the the top left and bottom right corners.
Layer a 14cm by 9.5cm photo onto white and then light purple card. Position (but do not glue in place yet) toward the left hand side of the page. Choose 4 papers from the Capsule collection. Trim and position as follows.
Trim a pale patterned sheet to measure 18.5cm by 7cm. Distress and tear the bottom edge and position a scrap of a darker paper behind the torn section. Tuck under the bottom edge of the photo.
Trim another paper to measure 11cm by 6cm. Tuck under the top edge of the photo.
Trim a third patterned paper to measure 5cm by 7.5cm and tuck under the right hand side of the photo. Glue all the pieces in place.
Print or write journalling on white card. Trim and position at the bottom of the page. Glue two lengths of ribbon across the page hiding the ends behind the journalling block.
Use Glitteration borders to edge and highlight sections of the page.
Add cardstock alphabet stickers to contrasting card, Cut out and layer on another card layer. Cut out and add to the page overlapping the photo.
Add a row of Petals flowers at the top of the photo with ribbons and brads in the centre of each. Add a pair of photo turns to the left hand edge and secure with brads.
Complete by adding the date to the top corner and accenting with Mosaics and Glitteration Dots as an accent.
