Love — By: Susan Cobb


Designer Tip: Susan's vintage-inspired layout is just right for honoring the love of your life.


  1. Place the striped flourish paper with the stripes running vertically. Lay the overlay over the background, placing the printed border at the top. Sand a red flower Brad Buddy™ and attach it over the “o” in “love”, securing the overlay to the background.
  2. Mat a horizontal photo on burgundy textured paper, trim to 1/2" and ink the edges. Glue “delightful” and “romantic” cut-outs extending off the bottom right edge of the photo. Run ribbon diagonally across the bottom right corner of the photo, taping the ribbon ends to the back side of the mat. Glue the photo centered on the background. Attach a gingham brad to the diagonal ribbon length, positioned over the ends of the cut-outs. Sand three mini brads and attach them down the top left edge of the mat.
  3. Computer journal on two tag cut-outs. Fold 1" of ribbon in half and secure the loose ends behind the top of one tag. Attach the tags below the photo with a sanded mini brad in each tab.
  4. Lift up the top left corner of the overlay. Glue the small green tag cut-out horizontally with the tab positioned under the top of the “l” in “love”. Attach a sanded mini brad to the top of the “l” and two to the “v”, through both the overlay and background paper layers. Run a thin strip of burgundy paper through the holes on a small button. Zot™ the button over the “o” in the word “passion” printed on the overlay.
