I was instantly in love with Natalie's clean , yet detailed style when I saw these layouts that she submitted for our design team call:

And look at what she did with our Valentine Cut-Outs and Artisan Journaling Spots! Natalie loosely based her first layout on Page Plan #5, but says it "morphed a bit"! That's what so great about page plans and sketches...they give you a place to start and then your own creativity can take over! I love how Natalie used several of our journaling spots and tags and continued her writing from one tag to another. I also love the dimension she gave them by layering them and popping two tags up with a foam adhesive.
