"Karate, The Journey to Black Belt" by Virginia Nebel
Supplies List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Websters's Pages; Embellishments: Making Memories brads; Word stickers: Paper Wizard die cut; Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts; Markers: Copic Markers; Die cuts: Lifestyle Crafts

Variation #1: I omitted the stitched star background and used kraft cardstock with a notebook border punch on the edges

Variation #2: Instead of multi-width vertical stripes, I used 2 inch wide stripes stitched on the edges to mimic karate belts. The colours (left to right) represent each belt level accomplished.

Variation #3: Instead of stitched vertical stars, I cut out stars from thin sheets of balsam wood and stamped some with Asian script to create Ninja star accents.

Variation #4: I placed a large title beneath the photo. The journaling strips were placed above and beneath the photo.

"Christmas Cheer" by Suzanna Lee
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill Dots; Patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle; Button: Making Memories; Flowers: Maya Road, Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon; Ticket: Jenni Bowlin; Letter Stickers: KaiserCraft, American Crafts; Embroidery Thread: DMC

Variation 1: The picture size is 5 x 7 instead of 4 x 6. Rather than use multiple pieces behind the picture, I went with a single piece. The kids have their heads peeking through a wreath and I wanted the single green piece to be suggestive of the wreath with the continuity of green.

Variation 2: Rather than the line of stars moving down the left hand edge of the picture I went with a cluster of Christmas flowers at the bottom left corner.

Variation 3: Omitted the stripey strip across the page.

Variation 4: No journaling strips. In fact, no journaling. I suppose I ought to do that, eh? LOL!!

All of the layouts are so cute! I really liked the Karate layout because I have a lot of Karate photos to scrap. I hadn't thought of doing the strips for the different belt levels. Great idea!
