Let's get crafting!


Step 1: First, using the Stairway Gardens Die, cut 4 of the corner pieces from white cardstock. Then using the middle lattice die, cut 2 from white cardstock. Finally, using the large scalloped 6” square die from the same set, cut 1 from white cardstock.

Next using the Eyelet Royale Die, cut 2 of the eyelet lace rectangle pieces from white cardstock.

Step 2: The blue patterned paper is the background. Adhere the 4 die cut corner pieces to the background. Cut a piece of the plaid patterned paper that is 9 x 9” and adhere to the middle of the layout. Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper that is 5.75 x 12” and adhere across the layout. Find and cut out the 6 x 6” patterned card base image used.

 Cut the outer design off and mat it in white cardstock instead. Distress the edges of this white cardstock layer. Adhere this piece to the 6 x 6” scalloped die cut piece using foam tape. Then adhere to the middle of the layout again using foam tape. Mat the 4 x 4” photo in white cardstock and adhere to the middle of the layout using foam squares.

Step 3: Cut 2 pieces of dark green patterned paper that are slightly larger than the small square lattice pieces. Adhere the die cut pieces to the dark green patterned paper using 3D foam strips.

Add the die cut rectangle pieces to either side of the matted photo. Then add the matted lattice pieces to the middle of the rectangles.


Step 4: Creating Flowers: Stamp and die cut 3 of the larger Oakberry Lane Blossoms images using brown ink (Stampin Up- Early Espresso) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the medium flower images and 1 set of the smallest flower image. Stamp and die cut 2 of the swirly Leafy Accents image using brown ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.

 Add color to the leaves using green ink (Stampin Up- Always Artichoke) and daubers. Add color to the flowers using yellow ink (Stampin Up- Crushed Curry) and daubers. Shape the flowers and leaves using the coordinating Shaping Molds. Assemble the layers and then add beads to the middle of each using liquid adhesive. Let dry.


Step 5: Add the flowers first up the middle of the layout. Then add pieces of the leaves around most of the flowers. Find and cut out the “Moments with You” sentiment and flag both ends. Add the sentiment below the matted photo and to the right of the flowers using foam squares.

Add gems to the corner die cut pieces.
