Hi everyone! I have quick post that shows how you can use your printer on the background page of your layout. I printed my son's name directly onto my 12x12 Bazzill paper in black (alternatively, you can use 8 1/2 x 11" paper and hide the edges with the other papers). I then matted the 5x7" photo with cream paper. The blue paper is 7"x 8 1/2" at the point closest to the photo and 7"x 10" at the furthest point. To get the wavy line in the blue paper, I used 2 coffee mugs and traced the curves into the paper and then cut it out. I used the same cream paper for the 2" circles cut with the Fiskars punch and put an orange eyelet in the center of each one. I then added orange twine from eyelet to eyelet and placed the circles slightly under the blue paper but across the top of the photo. I also added a transparent sticker with wording regarding the definition of wonder directly on top of the bottom of the photo. The orange paper is 5" x 12" (matching the size of the photo) and I added a black sticker with a definition of carefree along the bottom of the page. I like the clean lines and used colors that matched the hat and shirt along with black that grounded the items onto the page.
