Journaling says: Right around when you were born foxes became uber trendy in fashion, decor, scrapbooking, and more. Foxes foxes everywhere! In 2013 a song went viral all about "what does the fox say?" Kids in your class sang it to you and you and Jane sing it for me. Too funny!

How to: Trim 1/2" from the top of a gray polka dot paper layout background leaving the tearaway strip intact and put that at the top. Punch 1" circles from Amy Tangerine 6x6 paper pads and adhere them with pop dots across the layout. Add an epoxy border sticker, mini alphabet and foam stickers across the top to make the title. Place a "remember" chipboard sticker on the top right with a "this" sticker below. Adhere a square photo on the layout, slightly off-center. Place speech bubble wood veneer, chipboard, and die cuts around the photo and embellish with stickers and journaling. Stick a chipboard bow at the bottom of the photo. Stamp the date on the bottom right corner and drop black spray mist around the layout as shown.

Supplies: Patterned paper, stickers (epoxy border, foam letters and numbers, mini alphabet, "this"), chipboard (arrow, bow, "remember", speech bubble, "i heart u"speech bubble), wood veneer speech bubble card, die cut speech bubble, date stamp, ink, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Circle punch: Fiskars

Journaling says: What are these silly and sweet faces you're making here dear Jane?!

How to: Punch 1/2" squares from Dear Lizzy 6x6 paper pads, cut each square in half diagonally to make tons of triangles, then adhere them in 7 rows down the center of a blue patterned paper layout background. Sew diagonally across each row of triangles and leave the thread ends pretty long. Die cut three doilies from white cardstock and place them on the top left, middle right, and bottom left corners. Layer photos, fabric brads, epoxy stickers, accordion and fabric flowers, ribbon photo corners, and more, on each die cut doily as shown. Journal on a die cut card and tuck it under one of the doilies. Make a title with chipboard and mini alphabet stickers under the middle photo. Stamp the date below the title and drop dark blue spray mist around the doilies.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, patterned vellum, fabric brads, stickers (chipboard letters, epoxy number circles, mini alphabet, sentiment arrows), ribbon photo corners, accordion flowers, fabric flower, journaling spot die cut, pen, date stamp, ink, adhesive: American Crafts; Square punch: Fiskars; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine (Silhouette Cameo), doily cut files: QuicKutz
