The Studio J Express Collections made this project much easier. The beautifully designed layouts have all the embellishments already on the layouts - you just add photos, journaling, and a title. You can still make some changes such as paper color, but it is a very quick and easy way to get a beautiful result!
I had such a great time making these pages. Check out those awesome tube socks on my husband and his brothers! Weren't the 70's great!
