Susan's Tips: Stamp the star frame image on lime paper, then stamp again on colored cardstock and cut out the star. Foam tape the star cut-out over the first image for a colorful and 3-dimensional look. Jewel Dazzles™ add shiny colorful detail to the stamped stars and star border at the top of the page.

  1. Turn the blue with stars paper so the stars border is at the top. Mat each of the three photos on a different color of cardstock, leaving a 1/8" border. Ink the edges black.
  2. Ink the edges of a 5"x8" lime squares rectangle and glue vertically to the page, 1 1/4" from the left side and 1/2" from the bottom. Ink the edges of a 6 1/2"x3 3/4" lime squares rectangle and glue horizontally to the page, even with the right side and 2 1/4" from the top. Stamp the star frame image on the ends of both lime rectangles with black ink. Stamp the star frame image again on purple cardstock, then stamp "It's your DAY!" on the center. Cut out the star and foam tape it over the stamped image on the lime rectangle at the lower left portion of the page. Write or computer print the name on red cardstock, then stamp the star frame image over the name so it is centered on the star. Cut around the star and foam tape it over the stamped image on the page as shown.
  3. Place the matted photos on the page, overlapping each other and the lime rectangles. Add ribbons.
  4. Write or computer print journaling on orange cardstock, trim to a rectangle and ink the edges. Mat on lime, leaving a 1/16" border. Ink the edges and glue overlapping the lower photo as shown. Write or computer print the year on purple, trim, then mat on lime and glue as shown. Embellish the stamped images and page border with Jewel Dazzles™ as desired.
