sketch layout photo sheet from Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Magazine's Fun With Photos Memories and More (2004) is the design layout inspiration for the card shown above=

layout design notes:

*my card is loosely based on the shown scrapbook page "Nibbles" by Kelly Jones

*my card has some size and shape variations with taking a 12" square reduced to about a 5" wide x 7" high dimension card

*an extra base/background layer was added

*navy blue layer replaces the shown kraft brown

*the mesh/grid print is replaced by the white and blue recycled cardstock print

*the caramel and white strip is replaced by the silver mirror foil decorative tape

*the white panel is used as white glitter coated cardstock on my card

*the 4 small holes on the vellum journaling are shown as 3 silver foil corner accents

*the top right photo was eliminated

*the circle photo was replaced with a circle cardstock topped with a sticker and without the fuzzy decorative yarn trim (navy blue alcohol marker edging instead(

*the bottom left photo was reduced in size and replaced with 2 snowflake glitter stickers

*the vellum journaling was replaced with the silver foil 'dazzles' sticker phrasing

*my card has additional embellishments with a snowflake die-cut, 7 silver stars, and a printed 2nd sentiment of "HNY 2025"
