Step By Step Layout 'Opa' (Grandpa) by Ingeborg Dijkstra

White Cardstock
• Patterned Paper ‘Simplicity’ (Kindred Spirit)
• Patterned Paper ‘Rhapsody’ (Kindred Spirit)
• Stitching Template (Bazzill)
Embroidery Thread
Ink Pad Topaz (Versa Color)
Thickers Sprinkles (American Crafts)
• Journaling Block and Arrow stamp (‘Moments Like This by Inque Boutique)
• Circles Stamp (‘Sheltering Tree’ by Gel-A-Tins)


• I drew a few pencil lines to create a frame for my photos.
• I used a stitching template to punch little holes for my hand stitched frame.

  • I added the two photos.
  • I placed the striped paper to the right of my stitched frame and put a piece of blue paper on top of it.
  • I added my title ‘opa’ (which is ‘Grandpa’ in Dutch and German).

  • I stamped a journaling block and an arrow onto the layout.
  • I also stamped circles onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it out.
  • I used foam dots to stick the circular stamped image onto the page.
  • I used some more hand stitching on top of the two strips of paper.
  • I added a button and some more ‘dots’ and done!
