  1. Ink the edges of a sheet of black paper and place it with the tan leaves in the top right corner. Add brown mini brads to the ends of three swirls printed on the leaf corner.
  2. Ink the edges of a 7 1/4"x9" piece of tan cardstock. Glue the cardstock in the bottom left corner of the page and add a brown brad to each bottom corner. Glue a 7"x5" photo 1/8" from the top edge of the cardstock. Write the year below the photo.
  3. Punch out brown monograms to spell “girls”. Stamp swirls on the “g”, “r”, “s” and the dot of the “i”. Glue all the letters below the photo. Zot™ a small tan silk flower above the “i” and glue the dot of the “i” in the center of the flower.
  4. Write “just us” above the word “girls”. Stamp a swirl below the word “girls”.
  5. Computer journal a vertical block on tan cardstock. Punch half a 1 1/4" circle centered at the top of the journaling block. Ink the edges of the journaling and glue it in the bottom right corner of the page. Tip: Can’t fit your ink pad in the notch on the journaling? Dab a cotton swab on your ink pad, and use that to apply ink to the punched-out portion. Add a brown brad just above the half punched circle. Zot™ a bow of black grosgrain ribbon just above the brad.

A tip from Susan:
Personalize your monograms with quick and easy stamping! Just place a monogram on a piece of scrap paper and add your choice of stamp to an acrylic block (I chose a swirl from the Swirls set). Ink the stamp with a StazOn ink pad—these are designed for glossy surfaces like the Monograms. Stamp the monogram, allowing the swirl pattern to run off the edges of the letter. Stamp once for a subtle accent, or stamp multiple times to cover the surface of the monogram.
