Notes and Details Layout

When I saw the Notes & Details stamp in the Stampin' Up catalog I just had to add it my collection. They showcased it using a layout page and I did page one similar to the one in the catalog. I just love the accents, the stamping along the side and the embossed strips on both sides of the photo mat.

I added a couple of tags to my ribbon on the right hand side. The hearts and date stamp are on small buttons so that the pictures can slide behind them. For the embossing on either side I used a 3" piece of cardstock embossed it, then cut it in half and lined it up on either side of the photo mat. I did emboss with clear embossing powder the bracket on this page only.

I incorporated the same colors and accents but added an edging and a label punch to the
4x6 pages and the 2x8 strip.

I just alternated the placements of the tags and hearts on the back side of the pages.

The last pages is another 8x8 page. For the reverse of the bracket, I stamped on the back side of the paper then cut it out. I also added three of the Decorative punches instead of stamping the numbers again.

As usual I designed the whole layout on Design Studio before I actually made it so I do have a cut file for it here.
