Step 1: Use White Cardstock as the base for this layout.
Step 2: Cut a piece of burgundy patterned paper to measure 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″. Adhere it to the cardstock. Cut a piece of gold patterned paper to measure 11-1/2″ x 1-1/2″. Adhere it along the top edge of the burgundy paper.
Step 3: Using the Basketweave Border Punch, punch a border from Navy Cardstock. Cut strips from the yellow and green patterned paper to measure 3/8″ wide. Weave it through the basketweave border as shown. Trim any excess from the edges of the border and adhere it just below the gold paper.
Step 4: Using the Dips & Diamonds Border Maker Cartridge in the Original Border Maker System, punch a border from the green patterned paper. Cut it to measure 3/4″ wide and adhere it just below the basketweave border.
Step 5: Cut a piece of gold patterned paper to measure 12″ x 1/4″ and adhere it along the seam between the two previously adhered borders.
Step 6: Cut a piece of white dot patterned paper to measure 3″ x 6″ and adhere it behind the laser border. Adhere that to the far left side of the layout.
Step 7: Create photo mats by cutting three pieces from the gold patterned paper to measure 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″, 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″. Adhere them to the layout.
Step 8: Adhere photos that measure 4″ x 3″, 4″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ to the gold mats.
Step 9: Adhere stickers and embellishments to the layout as desired. Pop some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Very pretty layout. This could be a great page about my son’s birthday because it’s so bright and cheery!
LOVE the weaving technique on the basketweave punch! Unique way to change up an already gorgeous punch!
Weaving strips through the punch is ingenious.
