Instructions: This Lay-out is 12” x 12”. Taking the pizza cardboard, cut this as a base for the lay-out 12” x 12”. Find the sheet 11b and sheet 2b in the paper collection. Trim the white strip off both papers and trim the sheet 2b so it will be 1/4 inch smaller than the sheet 11b. Cut sheet 11b at 7 1/2 inches so the flower pattern can be placed together as shown. Ink all the edges with the Vivid Chartreuse ink and foam inking tool. Adhere the sheet 11b to the pizza card base using double sided tape. Adhere the sheet 2b to this, using the double sided 3D foam tape, but leaving the edges so they can be curled and rolled up. (about 2 inches on both sides) You have now made your lay-out base.

To make the embellishments, stamp with the coffee ink, bring colour to the stamped images then die cut all the images you need for the decorating. Here is the colouring list: Chickens: Chinese Ink-2030, Mustard-1700, Sililton Yellow-0220, Chilli Red-0500, Burnt Orange 0260, Sienna Gold-0240, Sepia Ink-2010.

Sunflowers: Felt Green-1530 , Golden Yellow-0230. Barn: Chilli Red-0500, Sea Blue-1200, Sienna Gold-0240. Mice: Saddle Brown-1740, Carmine Pink-0520. Using the dies to cut extra shapes from the cereal card board for the stamped images and adhere the layers together to make chipboard images. The flowers, sunflowers, wheat and two haybales are not layered as these are used in the background of the lay-out.

Cut the photo so it will fit in the barn. The barn is used as a matting for the photo. Cut a few layers of pizza box to fit the photo. Adhere together then sand the edges of the photo. Adhere the photo to the barn then the barn to the lay-out base. Arrange the flowers and sunflowers and adhere across the lay-out. Arrange the rest of the chipboard images and adhere in place. Dot clear drying adhesive under and around the chickens for the seeds. Sprinkle the micro beads onto the adhesive and leave to dry. Shake the excess micro beads away into the trash bin or a jar for another project. To make the sentiment, stamp this with the coffee ink onto the white card stock then stamp with the versa-mark using the misti stamping tool, sprinkle with the clear embossing powder and set with the heat it tool. Using the matching die for the sentiment, die cut the sentiment. Use the vivid Chartreuse ink to bring colour to the sentiment then bring another ink layer using the Honey pot ink. Adhere the sentiment to the lay-out using the 3D circle foam dots under the barn. To finish the project off, apply a little diamond stickles to the flowers and sunflower centres.
