1. Draw a border around an 8-1/2x11" sheet of kraft cardstock with a black pen. Adhere a 3-1/4x95/8" piece of patterned paper to the center of the sheet.
2. Mat the strip of photos with a second patterned paper and add it to the layout. Attach a piece of mini notebook paper in the lower left-hand corner and handwrite your journaling on it. Use letter stickers to create a title.
3. Cut a journaling die cut in half and place one piece next to the strip of photos. Embellish a felt accent with a ceramic accent and add it to the journaling block. Attach a felt embellishment to the top photo. Finish the page with date tabs in the upper right-hand corner and two staples in the lower left.
