1 Lay the cardstock face down onto the bottom layer of an embossing folder and emboss using a stylus. Repeat randomly on a couple of other areas, turn the cardstock over and sand the embossed areas and edges of the cardstock.
2 Cut one large corner from a sheet of patterned paper and adhere to the right-hand side of your layout.
3 Matt your photograph onto corrugated cardstock, fold a short length of ribbon and tuck it underneath one corner. Affix to the right-hand side of the page.
4 Cut a strip of corrugated cardstock and some scrap white paper to the same width as the page.
Punch a lace pattern along the white strip and attach beneath the lower edge of the corrugated cardstock. Adhere both to the page underneath the photograph.
5 Stitch around the edges of the layout using white thread and add two strips of knotted ribbon in the top-right corner.
6 Colour a chipboard frame using an inkpad and attach a journaling spot behind it. Fix foam pads to the back and tie a piece of raffia in one end of the corrugated cardstock along with the chipboard border piece.
7 Matt the letters onto patterned paper, trim and attach to the corrugated strip using foam pads. Add brads, buttons and a photo corner.
