Instructions: Take a 12 x 12" brown cardstock for the base, then take a paper from the paper Collection and cut it smaller than the cardstock and make the edges rough with a distress tool. On the above right side just make a cut and pull the distresser over it too then curl the 2 flaps, put the safety pin through it and ink all the edges with Rich Cocoa. Now glue or tape it on the brown Cardstock, do some doodling on the edges off the paper with the Black Fine liner. Cut another piece from the paper collection at 11 x 4 1/2" and place this 1 inch from the bottom and glue this down and put a brad on 3 corners.

Mat your Photo on a piece of cardstock and place this on top of the design paper, a little bit over it. Stamp with the Tuxedo black and the pocket stamp on design paper and cut it out with the coordinating die, glue 3 sides of it and place that next to the photo, then you have a pocket.

Take the same color of your photo mat and use the label from the Hand stitched accent die set, stamp also with the black some Buttons, cut them out with the Button die and color them with the Buttercup Ink, then put some 3D Crystal Lacquer on them and let them dry. Then glue them on the label and place the label in the pocket, color the needle with the silver marker and put a piece of Twine through the button and place the button on the pocket with a 3D foam pad. Place the box with sewing needles on the bottom part of the photo. Place also 3 small buttons on the left side of the Safety pin. Place a little piece of lace behind the tear you made. Stamp with the Patchwork patterns stamp and the Tuxedo Black ink on the White cardstock and color it with the Teal Zeal, cut them out with the coordinating die, place 3D foam pads behind them and stick them on the top right side of the photo. Cut a piece of the design paper of 4 x1 1/4" and fold it over the straight part of the paperclip, then cut out a stamp from the collection and glue this on top, make a bow with the seam binding on the top of the paperclip and stick this on the left corner of your layout.

Stamp with Rhubarb Stalk and the Oak berry Blossom stamp on White Cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating dies, then color them with New Sprout in the middle and on the ends with Buttercup on the petals, put them up side down in the 3D mold and mist them very lightly with water, (you can put 3 layers in if you want) put the top on the mold and run it through the machine, Now glue 1 on top of the stamp on the paperclip and put a pearl in it.

Stamp with Tuxedo Black and the Buttons and Blooms stamps on White cardstock, color them with the Buttercup, Teal Zeal and Cactus Flower and cut them out with the connected dies, place them wherever you like on the layout, on some of them you can glue some of the flowers, finish them off with some pearls. The word Buttons is from the strip of the paper collection.
