Instructions: 12 x 12" layout. The dark pink patterned paper is the background, But first I sent it through my Scan N Cut to cut out an 8" circle from the middle of it. Fussy cut around the corners of the wreath patterned paper and then adhere that to the dark pink patterned paper using crafty foam tape. Cut a strip of light pink patterned paper that is 2.5" wide. Cut 2 pieces of green patterned paper that are 1 x 2.5". Die cut 4 of the Decorative Pocket Accents Die from white cardstock. Adhere these along the edge of the light pink patterned paper strip. Adhere this up the middle of the layout. Hand cut the points on the green patterned paper pieces and adhere them to the top and bottom of the light pink border using 3D foam squares. Add buttons. Adhere the dark pink circle to the layout using crafty foam tape.
Die cut one of the decorative die from Daydream Bridge from white cardstock. I snipped it in half and adhered it to the circle in the middle of the layout. Mat the photo in white cardstock and add white photo corners to the photo. Adhere to the middle of the layout using crafty foam tape.
Stamp and die cut one set of the smallest Cherry Blossoms and 2 sets of the largest, using grey ink (Archival-Shadow Grey) onto white cardstock. Add color to the flowers using light pink ink (Distress Oxide- Worn Lipstick) and daubers just in the middle of each flower. Shape the flowers using the 3D Cherry Blossom Shaping Mold. I added Prills (Pink Tu-Tu) to the middle of each of the flowers. Let dry. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the swirly Leafy Accent leaves, and 2 sets of the Cherry Blossom leaves using dark brown ink (Early Espresso) onto white cardstock. Add color using green ink (ColorBox- Seaweed) and daubers. Shape the leaves using the coordinating 3D shaping molds.
Add a large flower above and below the matted photo and add the 3 leaved Cherry Blossom leaves. Add a cluster of the swirly Leafy Accents leaves to the right and left of the matted photo, and then add a large flower on top. Add 2 small flowers to the left and right of the matted photo. Find and cut out the "Memories are Forever" sentiment, flag one end and add below the matted photo.
