Best Friends for Life

Ann's Tip:You can ink silk flowers with StazOn to change their color. A single color added to black and white makes a big statement..
- Place the paper so the stripes are horizontal. Journal the title and text on a 5âx3 3/4â white cardstock and mat on red cardstock, leaving a 1/8â border. Insert a black jewel brad in the top right and bottom right corners of the journaling. Glue to the page 3/4â from the right and 1â from the top.
- Mat a 5âx7â photo on red cardstock, making a 1/16â mat. Mat again on black cardstock, making a 1/4â mat. Mat once more on red cardstock, making a 1/16â mat. Glue to page 3/4â from the right and Â½â from the top.
- Cut three 2 1/4âx2 3/4â photos. Cut three 2 3/4âx4â pieces of red cardstock and mat them onto black cardstock, leaving a 1/16â border. Cut three 2 1/4âx3/4â pieces of white cardstock and write names on them. Glue the photos and the corresponding names onto the matted red cardstock as shown. Insert a red or black jewel brad to either side of each name. Glue the photos to the page along the bottom and slightly tilted as shown, about 3/4â from the bottom.
- Take a 2 Â½â red (or any color) flower and use a Black StazOn inkpad to directly ink the flower black. Stack the flower on top of two larger red flowers and insert a Red Burst brad in the center. Glue the flower to the page under the journaling, 1 Â½â from the right and 3 Â½â from the bottom.
