Down on the Farm — By: Shauna Berglund-Immel


Designer Tip: Create a cute and functional vellum pocket right on the page to store all of your brochures, projects and itineraries. Shauna took advantage of the space on this “Down on the Farm” layout by creating a pocket to store memorabilia and using the filmstrip technique to display lots of photos!


  1. Use the brown/pink stripe paper as the background. Cut an 8”x12” piece of white vellum and lay it horizontally across the bottom of the background paper. Punch ten 1/2” circles out of solid brown paper. Space them evenly long the bottom of the vellum. Add a pink snap to the center of each, attaching all of the layers together.
  2. Cut a 2 1/4”x12” strip of solid brown paper and glue it to the top edge of the vellum with a glue stick. Punch five photos into 1 3/4” squares and mat them on white paper, trimming the mats to 1/16”. Mat again on solid pink paper, trimming the mats to 1/8”. Space the matted photos evenly across the brown paper strip, then secure with a glue stick. Glue only the left and right edges of the vellum down to the background paper under the brown paper strip, forming a pocket out of the vellum.
  3. Computer journal onto white paper and crop. Mat on solid brown paper, trimming the mat to 1/16”. Mat again on solid pink paper, trimming the mat to 1/8”. Cut a 3” piece of brown fiber and tie a knot in the center. Secure in the upper right corner of the journaling with a Glue Dot™. Attach the journaling to the right side of the front of the vellum pocket.
  4. Write the page title below the photo strip using a black pen, then insert memorabilia into the pocket.
