I wrapped the Hemp Twine around the upper corner and gave it a few twists before adhering it to the back of the paper. Then I used my CropADile tool to add these Jumbo Eyelets. The title pieces are cut from Bravo Burgundy cardstock using the Serif Alphabet for the Big Shot. This alphabet is a great investment for scrapbooking and 3D projects. I stamped them with En Francais background stamp in Bravo Burgundy ink and then sponged the edges. I really like the difference the stamping and sponging makes in person, although you can't really see it in the photos.
For the journaling I wrote directly onto the base page using a Journaling Pen. Although I don't really love my handwriting and especially don't like the angle and tilt of my journaling, I love seeing my mom and grandmother's handwriting, so I try to handwrite most of my journaling.
TIP: ALWAYS use an archival pen to write your journaling. Even if you use Classic Ink (instead of Craft Ink, which lasts longer) on your scrapbook pages, always write your journaling in an ink that will stand the test of time and will not fade. Stampin' Up has two colors of Journaling pens and I can't recommend them enough for your scrapbook entries.
