Today I am celebrating a great little tradition around here that Simon really loves: a Russian nesting doll. Here's the full view (just one page today):
I started off with a 4x6 photo (includes a Holiday Title + Journal Photo Overlay added in Photoshop) that was printed here at home (for more information on working with digital overlays check out this link). I trimmed the page around the photo down to 6 inches x 9 inches because I knew I wanted the entire page to end up that size and I wanted that photo placed in the top right corner.
I temporarily removed the circle #6 card (gently) and adhered the red felt piece on top of the printed photo (lining up the scalloped ribbon edge with the line on the overlay). I turned the entire thing over and trimmed off the excess red felt with a craft knife.
I cut a piece of American Crafts patterned paper to size and adhered it in the bottom right corner. I added new foam squares to the back of the circle card and adhered it in place.
I typed up and printed out my journaling onto white paper and cut into strips.
Strips are adhered with Therm-O-Web's SuperTape.
And here's a look at the before page:
