For this project I used Fresh Freesia card stock and Heart and Home DSP from Stampin’ Up! I also used the Quiet Meadow stamp and die bundle that is 20% off until March 31, 2022. For the die cuts I used scraps of card stock that coordinated with the DSP.
I started by using a piece of notebook paper to find the placement for the three holes so I could use my layout in a standard 3 ring binder.
On the second sheet of Fresh Freesia card stock I trimmed 1/4 inch off the short side to make it 8 1/4 x 11 inches. Then I scored at 1/2 inch on the short side and diagonally trimmed each corner of the 1/2 inch gluing tab. I then used Highland Heather ink and a stamp from Quiet Meadow to stamp multiple images down the right hand edge of the page next to the gluing tab.
I adhered the gluing tab to the first sheet of Fresh Freesia along the side opposite from the 3 holes with the tab on top of the full sheet so the page will close over it. This way the page will move freely.
Next I cut 2 pieces of DSP 10 3/4″ x 7 1/2″ and glued them to the inside pages with an 1/8″ border all around the right hand page and an 1/8″ border at top, bottom and right side of the page with the holes. Then I cut a third piece at 10 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ and glued it next to the stamped images on the front page. Next from Fresh Freesia, I cut three photo mats 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ one journaling card 3 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ and a journal pocket 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. I also cut 9 strips of card stock 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ to use on three sides of the journal pocket to make it easier to slide the journaling card in and out.
I added a 4 1/2″ x 4″ piece of DSP to the front of the pocket then glued the pocket and photo mats to my layout as shown at the top of the post. After adding my photos I decorated the layout with die cuts from the Meadow Dies.
