How To:

Cut background from 12x12 Kraft cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo, set aside.  Use a 2 1/2" square punch to punch out different patterned paper pieces (you will need about 30 squares).  Use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut each square in half diagonally to make two triangles.  Repeat this step until all the squares are cut.  Fill in the empty spaces by arranging squares inside the pattern in a up and down fashion, do this until all the spaces are filled.  Use a sewing machine and white thread to add straight stitching to your page.  Print a 4"x6" photo and trim into the shape of a diamond, adhere to top of design.  Spell out the words "Back To School" using cork thickers in the middle of the page diagonally.
Place a "The Future Is Bright" cardstock sticker, and rub-on's just below title.  Use date stamp and black precision pen to add journaling to page.  Run the "hello" watercolor Minc tag through the Minc using gold foil, adhere to page with two wood buttons just below photo.  Finish by adhering "Live" cardstock die cut piece just above title.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day!
