Assemble the left page:

  1. Campus – Chalk the edges heavily with brown Distress Ink. Then scratch the top, left and bottom edges with a paper scratcher. I also stitched the edges with brown.
  2. Roll the top left corner with your finger around a pencil so it makes a curled corner. Now stick it down on one of the Mexican red frames you cut earlier, flush to the right edge, centred top to bottom.
  3. Basic Essentials pesto green – tear a piece away from the top left corner. Distress edges with a paper scratcher. I also stitched this piece. Stick this piece down onto Campus flush to the left side of the Campus page.
  4. Fussy cut one side of the burgundy barcode strip of Bookshelf page and stick it down flush to green Pesto piece.
  5. Botanics – (16.5cm piece) distress top, left and bottom edges with a paper scratcher and stick it down 3cm from the top and flush to the right edge.
  6. Old books – (15cm x 17cm piece) Chalk heavily with brown distress ink, distress with the paper scratcher. I also stitched this piece. Adhere this 6cm from the top and flush to the right edge.
  7. Leather photo matts – Stick the 1st one 10.5cm from the left edge and 7.5cm from the top, the 2nd one 1cm from the first one, also 7.5cm from the top.
  8. Stick the other burgundy barcode strip (15cm) directly under the photo matts.
  9. Fussy cut one side of the black and gold border strip and stick (16.5cm) directly under the Botanics piece.
  10. Fussy cut some of the books on the Bookshelf and lift it with foam. Stick it on the bottom part of green Pesto. I cut the Biblichor sentiment in half and tucked the top half behind the books and stuck it down. (keep the other half for the right page).
  11. I took the “That’s what I do…” sentiment and cut it in a circle shape & matted it onto a scalloped die-cut from black cardstock.
  12.  I also made a die-cut butterfly out of the script part of the Bookshelf sheet to use as decoration. Decorate the page with fussy cuts and sentiments of your choice. Refer to the picture for placing.

Assemble the right page:

    1. Belle’s Books- chalk heavily with brown Distress Ink & Scratch the top, right and bottom edges. I stitched this page too.
      • Chalk through the layered stencil in the bottom right corner with brown distress ink approx 6cm from the right edge and 7cm from the bottom.
      • Cut the top part of the dome and books with a craft knife so you can tuck strips behind.
      • Now stick this page onto the other Mexican red Frame you cut earlier. Flush to the left edge, centred top and bottom.
    1. Scratch the edges of the other Botanica piece and stick it down flush to the left, 3cm from top. Now stick the 2.5cm piece flush to the big one (extending the bigger piece)
    2. I shaped the top part of the other half of Biblichor sentiment and tucked it behind the top part of Botanica on the right.
    3. Chalk, scratch and stitch the other part of Old Books and stick it flush to the left, 6cm from the top
    4. Adhere the last photo matt 7.5cm from the top and 0.5cm from left (making sure it aligns with matts on the left page)
    5. Stick down the other half of the burgundy barcode strip under the photo matt
    6. Do the same with the black and gold border strip making sure it aligns with the left page
    7. Tuck the torn letter strip, green Pesto strip and scalloped barcode strip bottoms behind the dome and books and stick the top parts down.
    8. Paint your chippie of choice and stick it down approx 6cm from the top, between Botanica and green scallop strip.
    9. Decorate with fussy cuts and sentiments of choice and refer to picture for placing.
