The layout I am sharing with you all today uses a basic idea with punches to create interest around the page. I kept the embellishing to a minimum since it was a busy layout already with the punched pieces. Let me show you how to create a simple layout with fun details. Take a look at the full page below and gather your supplies to get started.

Here's what you'll need

Cardstock- American Crafts 12x12 Summer Pack

Echo Park Jack and Jill 12x12 sticker

TombowFoam Tabs

Tombow MONO permanent adhesive

Jillibean Soup staples tags

me & my BIG ideas mambi sticks

Circle punches

Fiskars paper trimmer

Fiskars Amplify scissors

Sewing machine

Tombow Monotwin pen

Letter stickers

Begin preparing this layout by punching a bunch of circle from two sizes. This will give you a fun variation when placed on the page. See the photo below.

Print two photos with a white border at 3.5"x5" and a third photo at 4"x4". Adhere these three photos onto some solid cardstock. The center photo was adhered with 3D squares.

Take all those punched circles and place them across the top and bottom of the page in a random order. It's ok to overlap the photos. Just make sure not to cover up any faces. You can leave these as is for now.

Choose two pieces of paper from the left over pieces to create a title space and a journal space. Place those two pieces on either side of the center photo and flush with the right and left sides of the page. See those two areas in the detailed photos below.

Add two more rows of circles under and above the title and journal spaces. Stitch all circle down. This step is optional.

Choose simple embellishments to finish your page off. Add both simple enamel pieces and dimensional stickers.

I love using simple ideas to create something unique. Here's a look at the full layout once again. Go grab your punches and create something today.
