On the 10th Day of Cropping, Creative Memories gave to me an idea with 10 photographs…
… and a Holly Border as well!
- Imagine Paper, Variety Mat Pack, Stickers and Embellishments
- White and Black Cardstock
- Gallivant Paper (Green)
- Teardrop Lattice Border Punch
- Holly Border Punch
- Poinsettia Punch
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Tape Runner with Repositionable Tape Runner Refill
- Foam Squares
- Black Dual-Tip Pen
Start with a piece of black dot paper as the base of the layout.
Cut a 2-1/2″ x 12″ strip of black and white striped paper for the base of the border. Cut a 1-3/4″ x 12″ strip of red with white dot paper and apply on top of the base.
Punch a strip of holly from both Black Cardstock and green (Gallivant) paper. Add to border, overlapping slightly to create a shadow effect.
Using the Teardrop Lattice Border Punch, punch a border with White Cardstock. Cut it in half lengthwise and adhere each teardrop edge behind the edges of the border as shown. (Repositionable adhesive works great for this!) Adhere the border to the left side of the layout.
Trim nine photos to 2″ x 2″. Mat them on 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ squares, 5 on White Cardstock and 4 on green paper.
Crop one photo to 7″ x 3-3/4″. Mat on a 7-1/4″ x 4″ piece of White Cardstock and then on a 7-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece of red with white dot paper.
Adhere all photos as shown, making three rows of three photos each, separated by the one large photo.
Mount the “Believe” embellishment to the large photo with Foam Squares.
Use the photo below as a guide to create a coordinating 2-page spread if desired.

Beautiful. You put lots of photos and embellishments so cleverly..Does not look crowded and tells the story so well.
One of my absolute favorites!!!
I love the idea of using the black dot paper for the background! Ten photos on the page AND a border to boot! LOVE IT!
Fabulous layout! Love all the pictures! Now, that’s scrap booking!
