Today’s video tutorial will give you four different ways to embellishment a rectangular collage of photos. It doesn’t matter how many photos you’re using, how rectangular the collage is (it can be squarish), or how big your collage is. Once you’ve established your collage, you can choose which of these four embellishment formulas will work best for you!

Below are the layouts I featured in today’s episode…
- He puts his eye on the prize
- He lets nothing get in his way
- He’ll climb every obstacle
- He’ll jump any height
He only does this with Blake. Gatsby loves to go after Blake’s socks.
Yellow tags: these are plain old white ones that I’ve had for at least five or six years now. To get this look, color them with Lemon Grass Glimmer Mist, then tone the color down by blending Old Paper Distress Ink inward from the edges with a blending tool.
Other: The letter ‘g’ Type Charm is the only other current product still available. Everything else I used was either old stash or from outside of the scrapbook industry. The cork circle (under the ‘g’ charm) is from the kitchen department of my dollar store. The wire is from the garden section and the beads are from the jewelry section of my craft store.
(Note: Links to the above products are through my affiliate store and I will make a commission from your purchase. All other supplies in the layouts below are also old pieces I scavenged from my stash and no longer available.)
The tag technique in the layout is from Episode 108. Members can find it in the archives to get the step-by-step instruction. If you click on the episode link, you will see the two other ways I’ve used it so far.
Journaling directed to my kids: Before Dad started working from home, these visits to Starbucks were a regular event. Dad and I could get some work done while you guys hooked your DS’s together to play a joint game. Nice out of the house adventure. ’08.
Aiden: You’re gonna have to have three pillows when I’m big.
Aiden: Because I’m gonna sleep with you guys in your bed. In the middle.
