This one is completely original and a little out of my normal comfort zone which made it fun! The background looks like a cork bulletin board. I added the double matted rectangles – one with the photo. The title blocks are a piece of patterned paper… I just cut out the relevant words. Next, I added a long black ribbon and attached clear alphabet bubbles spelling out our last name. That’s it! Oh yeah, and I needed journaling, of course, but I felt like a regular journaling block would take away from the layout so I simply wrote around the edge of the background with a black pen.

Another completely original layout. I used burgundy cardstock for the background, then layered the striped vellum, blue cardstock, and leaf print vellum in that order. In the top right had corner I used metal accents from Making Memories (I think?) – the words say soul mates, true friends, and forever friends. Then I attached a satin ribbon behind the bottom accent and let it hang over the leaf vellum. The horizontal burgundy stripe at the bottom is also a piece of the same ribbon – it goes over the blue cardstock then under the leaf vellum and stops right under the bottom of the first piece of ribbon. I double matted the photo of my husband and me and made it look like it was hanging with fiber and ribbon slides from Making Memories (I think?) Last, I ran my sewing machine along the top and bottom without any thread in it – great texture!

This one looks more complex than it is. I started with a background of black cardstock then layered crumpled off-white tissue paper and then metallic copper paper on top of that. I punched a couple of holes in the metallic paper (you’ll see those between the journaling and the photo). On the bottom right hand corner I simply used a regular hole punch and adhered a small piece of the metallic paper behind the holes. I used the same concept on the top border but used ½ of my circle punch to form the notches. The accent is a pre-printed tag matted with black cardstock. I matted the photo on the metallic paper then used copper brads in the corners and wrapped black fibers around those. Then, I mounted the whole thing on the crumpled tissue paper. Last came the journaling (that always seems to come last for me). I cut out a piece of the metallic paper and notched it with my circle punch (again) and then added the journaling printed on vellum. I attached the vellum with copper eyelets placed in the center of the notches. Oh yeah, don’t forget the date at the bottom. : ) I used another mini alphabet stamp set and black pigment ink.
