Video Gamer

Who doesn’t have a son that spends most of his time playing video games?  This layout by Stephanie Ackerman is perfect for those video game photos!


  1. Use black cardstock for the base of the layout
  2. Cut pattern paper to 11” x 11” and adhere to base
  3. Double mat photo and adhere to left side of the page
  4. Using rub-on tool, adhere title to white cardstock.  Since I wanted to use a portion of the rub-ons, I carefully cut around what I wanted first
  5. Cut title block to 3 ¼” x 5” and ink edges
  6. Mat onto black cardstock
  7. Create a journaling block from white cardstock (2 ¾” x 5”) and ink edges
  8. Mat onto black cardstock
  9. Add journaling, leaving just enough room for placement of the final rub-ons
  10. Using circle dies, I cut 2 mats for the circular rub-on and adhered as shown
  11. Additional rub-ons were adhered to white cardstock, matter with black and placed over the photo with staples
  12. Handwrite date in lower right corner
