|You'll want to start by trimming 2 different strips and adhering them to the top and bottom edges of the cardstock. I also trimmed a narrow strip -about 1/2" x 4" and placed it in the upper left corner|
|Next, you'll want to adhere your piece of wood grain paper. I wanted mine to act as a pocket, so I only put adhesive around 3 sides and left the top open.|
|Place the wood grain paper next to the right edge of the cardstock centered in between the top and bottom strips. If you want to create a pocket, make sure the side with no adhesive is placed at the top.|
|Now, you will want to adhere another strip of pattern paper to the left of the wood grain paper. Then you can adhere your photos. I chose to place 8 photos on my paper. You may not have that many which is fine.|
|Adhere your title in the top left corner. I used 2 different types of letters to create my title. Feel free to overlap the strips of pattern paper.|
|If you decided to use your wood grain paper as an pocket, you can now add your memorabilia. I placed a map of the area in my pocket. If you want to keep your layout simple, stop right here.|
|Here is another example of a layout using wood grain paper. The wood grain is more visible here than on the first layout. I like this look- somehow I think it looks like I pinned photos and paper to a telephone pole!:)|
With these weekly layouts, I usually try to go with a simple layout using common everyday items. I hope you're able to use pattern paper from your stash instead of buying new.
