I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.

I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.

I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.

Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.

I used several of the cardstock stickers from the collection to adorn this banner.

I combined a couple of the cardstock stickers for some more visual interest.

This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.

FREE Scrapbook Layout Template

Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades. I am sharing the PDF and JPG files! Just head over to the PHP blog and grab the link for the free download there!

Melinda, Is there a way to get some of your old Artiste or Art Philosophy tutorials? I am absolutely in love with your old work and I just got those Cricut cartridges.
