1 Cut some randomly sized photographs – ensure that they are all the same width but don’t worry about their height.
2 Cut two pieces of cardstock to use as photo matts, ensuring they will fit on the layout as desired. You do not need to be very precise when using this method of scrapbooking, just make sure that the photo matts will take the width of a couple of photos and are high enough for the tallest picture. Arrange the photographs on the matts, filling in any gaps with scraps of patterned paper, then trim the matt to fit.
3 Place a co-ordinating rectangle of paper onto the base of the layout (mine was approximately 9x 11″). Place the photographs onto the layout as shown.
4 Print the title onto cardstock, and adhere onto the left-hand side layout.
5 Cut two small rectangles (0.5″ wide) from co-ordinating paper and place one in the top-right corner as shown, decorated with a button threaded with ribbon. Repeat this process at the bottom-left of the layout – this anchors the base paper to the design and balances the layout.
6 Print your journaling onto the same paper as your base paper layer, cut into strips and mount onto cardstock to make it stand out, before adhering it to the layout.
7 Create a small photograph using a square metal tag (I used a Tag Maker), and affix in the lower-left corner using foam tape.
8 Add the weather symbols pushing them behind the background paper.
