I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #113 as inspiration for my page design:
Here are a few close-ups. The patterned papers are by My Mind's Eye. I thought the letter paper was perfect for my story, as were the Core'dinations and BasicGrey text prints. For some of my metal, I used the Tim Holtz clip pin to hold part of my title and staples to adhere the main part of my title. The 13 buttons were tricky for me, and I layered a couple for the O on my title.
I added some brads to the buttons to finish out my 11 metal items: The EK Success notebook border punch is one of my favorites, and I always love it when the topic of my layout fits in with it. I outlined everything in pen to make it stand out, including the punched edge. The Dymo-tape-looking stickers are really old K&Co. Life's Journey.
I love BasicGrey's Basics line. The labels on my page and this tab is from that collection. I used Headline rub-ons (found in the fine arts section at AC Moore) on the little tab--small and perfect for little spots.
I cut out these flourishy damask patterns from a My Mind's Eye paper to give my page some more color. These itty-bitty buttons from Michael's that I've had in my stash FOREVER (and I mean forever--from when I first started scrapping a decade ago) rescued me when I was trying to figure out how to get 13 buttons on my page.
