Using Page Maps
This month's page map was challenging for me, as I tend towards more simpler designs. However, with a few slight alterations to the sketch, I made it work for me. Don't feel like you have to copy a sketch exactly -- if something isn't working, alter it! For example, instead of having several blocks of overlapping paper, I combined them into a square collage of photos and paper. I used a circle cutting guide to lightly draw a circle around my layout and journaled on that line.
I used half of a Prima ?? that I picked up at Scrapbooks Plus. I just cut off enough for it to fit over my patterned paper square.
