As soon as I saw the sketch, I see the vertical and all of those wonderful layers. So I grabbed a few sheets of the pattern paper from the kit and just starting randomly trimming them and then layering them.
I started with the background being the cream colored cardstock from the kit, then just placed my cuts of pattern paper to see how I liked them focusing on the less busier pattern paper to be on the top.
For the right side, I chose the 3x4 pockets, and just trimmed more pattern paper to fit, then added a die cut over it. I loved the 'a few of my favorite things' die cut, but it was too large, so I just stitched it to the outside along the middle of these two pockets.
I trimmed more pattern paper that is more solid and less of a pattern, then layered a torn piece of vellum over it to add my typed journaling.
