Double Trouble

As usual I am more than happy for anyone to use the following instructions for their personal use but please do not copy them (either to teach your own classes or to post elsewhere online) without permission.
Thank you :)


EK Success Grasshopper Cookie patterned paper
White Cardstock
Small piece pale blue textured paper
Small piece pale green velum
Fiskars Star punch
Journaling Pen
Chatterbox Doodling template
Scalloped edge scissors
Hole punch


Cut two pieces from the patterned paper

One approx 2”x12” and one 3 ½” x 12”

Cut one piece from the blue textured paper – approx 2 ½ “x8 ¼”

Cut out the scalloped edge of the green paper and punch holes in each scallop.

Trim the second piece to approx 3 ½”x 11”

Using shaped scissors cut the edge of the blue paper and again punch holes along the edge


Using a pencil trace your title onto a sheet of pale green vellum using any font from your computer.

(I used “Impact” and Angelina)

Use a journaling pen to go over the lines and decorate with doodling etc – add a border if you like.


Attach the paper to the layout as shown but making sure your photo will overlap all papers and the vellum.

The blue paper should be attached over the top of the vellum to hide the glue holding the vellum on.

DO NOT use glue on any part of the vellum unless it will be covered by other paper, photo, embellishments etc

Add doodling using a doodling template or freehand.

To do the journaling I drew the doodled line in pencil first, added my journaling over the top then rubbed out the pencil.


Add further photos if required

Cut three stars and attach with brads to hold the top edge of the vellum flat.

Add further doodling eg stitched edges to the stars, as you prefer
