Instructions: The dark pink patterned paper is your background. Cut a strip of the green patterned paper that is 2 x12" and adhere across the middle of the layout. Add a strip of lace ribbon across the middle of that. Cut the pink patterned paper to 9 x 9" and mat in white cardstock. Tear out a section of the light pink patterned paper at the top and adhere a small piece of darker pink patterned paper in behind. Adhere these layers to the middle of the layout. Find and cut out the large blue tag, the green journal block and the small light pink journal block. Add half of the small light pink journal block in the top left hand corner of the layout. Double mat the photo in white cardstock and adhere to the middle of the layout using crafty foam tape. Add the blue tag and green journal block above the matted photo. Add a bow of burlap string to the tag. Find and cut out the "Celebrate the Season" sentiment and adhere to the right of the matted photo.
Stamp and die cut out 1 set of the small and large poinsettias using grey ink (Whisper) onto white cardstock. Add color to all of the images using ink and daubers (Blush). Shape the poinsettias using the 3D Shaping Mold. Assemble flowers and add glitter to the petals using liquid adhesive and Crystal Clear Glitter. Let dry. Add clear beads to the middle of each flower using liquid adhesive. Let dry.

Add a piece of the dark pink patterned paper behind the bowl portion of the goblet. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the single pinecones and 1 of the pinecone cluster using dark brown ink (Early Espresso). Add color to these using Chameleon Pens (OL3 Olive Green, GR1 Green Apple, NU3 Fawn, BR5 Bark). Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the small ornaments and add color using Chameleon Pens (YO3 Warm Sunset, YO2 Mellow Yellow, BL3 Sky Blue).

Starting with the goblet. Adhere to the left hand side of the matted photo using 3D foam squares. Add the pinecone cluster under the stem of the goblet. Adhere bows all along the bottom of the matted photo. Add the single pine clumps inside the goblet. Next add the poinsettias and arrange the remaining pinecones around the flowers. Add the Backyard Blossom sprigs to the goblet and around a couple of poinsettias. Add the beads to the goblet and all along the bottom between the poinsettias. Add the remaining ornaments.
