The Daily Grind

I decided to make some pocket type cards for my school themed layout.

Trim patterned papers 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" and white cardstock pieces 2 1/4 X 3 1/4.

Create rounded corners with your corner rounder.

Punch small holes , as shown

Thread cards with red jute twine from the kit.




Decorate each card with die cuts and chipboard pieces.

Attach banner to lower portion of layout.

Double mat photo and adhere above banner.

Add title, other chipboard and puffy stickers.



Stitch a few small strips of patterned paper at the top right 
and add chipboard banner "my life" piece.
I finished my layout by adding a few splats of white paint.
