'Life at 38' Step by Step layout by Ingeborg Dijkstra


List of materials:

Techniques and instructions (click on the picture above to see more details):


  1. To create a white border I used correction tape on all four sides.

  2. I outlined the white strip with black pen.

  3. I coloured a pattern of pink onto the correction tape and added the number ‘38’ with stickers. I outlined the stickers in white.

  4. I stamped the word ‘life’ onto a white sheet of cardstock.

  5. I doodled a ‘funky border’ in pencil (hard to see on the picture, sorry). I also stamped the word ‘at’.

  6. I drew random curls on each side of the paper.

  7. I added a ‘double line’ around my doodled border to create more dimension.

  8. A close up look at the double doodled border.

  9. I traced the outside doodled border on a thin sheet of 12x12 paper.

  10. I cut around the lines to create a mask.

  11. I used different stamps with suitable words and images to create a unique background.

  12. Using the hand cut mask I stamped all around the page.

  13. I removed the mask to reveal the background.

  14. I used pencils, markers and pens to colour the images.

  15. Using a craft knife I cut a slit in one of the corners.

  16. The slit is only a few centimetres long.

  17. I tucked one of the corners of my photo under the slit.

  18. I used different stamps for my journaling block.

  19. I added some more stamped images to embellish the page.

  20. I added rhinestones to finish the page.
