Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. The pink floral-patterned paper is the background. Cut the light patterned paper to 8.5 x 8.5” and cut a piece of white cardstock to 9 x 9”. Adhere these layers together. Cut a strip of the pink patterned paper that is 11 x 1.5” and flag both ends. Adhere up the side of the layout. Cut a piece of green patterned paper that is 5 x 6, and adhere on top of the pink border strip using crafty foam tape. Mat the photo in pink patterned paper and then white cardstock. Adhere this to the green patterned paper using foam squares. Find and cut out the sentiment “Live in the Moment” and adhere below the matted photo using foam squares.

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of each the small, medium and large Wild Aster flowers using grey ink (ColorBox- Shadow Grey) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the flowers using ink and daubers (ColorBox- Dyestress Cabernet). Stamp and die cut 3 sets of leaves using brown ink (ColorBox- Chocolate) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the leaves using ink and daubers (ColorBox- Seaweed). Stamp and die cut 3 of the branch images using brown ink. Add color to the small blossoms using ink and daubers (ColorBox- Dyestress Cabernet). Shape the flowers and leaves using flower shaping tools. Assemble the flowers and then add beads to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive. Let dry.

Add a large and small flower to the left of the matted photo. Add the rest of the flowers up the right-hand side of the layout. Add pieces of leaves around each flower, and then finally pieces of the branches around some of the flowers using glue dots.
