Fun border punched title! Clever idea. :)
Good job! I've yet to do a PL yet but there is so much inspiration here I might have to give it a try soon!

This is my first scrap booking page posted to Two Peas!
A couple of things inspired me for this project.
First, I wanted incorporate some of the ideas Jen Gallacher presented in her Tool School Workshop. I like stitching, so I pierced a zigzag pattern with a piercing tool on the top and bottom edges of my photos to outline them (idea #80 & 93). I rounded the four main corners of my project with a corner edging punch (idea # 83). I lightly inked the edges of my boarding punches with blue distress ink (idea # 15). I used Jen's idea to crumple a punched shape to create the circles I mounted my numbers on (idea # 5). I noticed that Jen likes to cut her own banners by hand. So I used her technique to cut pointy banner edges to make my own arrows out of washi tape. The tools I used on this project include: a circle punch, a border punch, a corner punch, paper piercer, detail scissors and a paper trimmer.
Second, I wanted to combine the look of a traditional scrapbook page with the ease of the Project Life technique. To do this, I rounded the top and bottom left corners of the outer title pocket and the top right and bottom right of the embellishment/journaling pockets. I also used the same blue backing paper to pull everything together. I found using the Project Life technique made it easier and faster for me to choose and complete my embellishments because it forced me to focus on one pocket at a time.
