Instructions: The dark blue polka dot patterned paper is the layout background. Yellow cardstock is 10.75 x 10.75", and the white cardstock is 10.5 x 10.5". Using the misters, splatter drops from the top left corner to the bottom right corner of the white cardstock. Let dry. Adhere these layers together. Using a template, I cut a large circle from the yellow patterned paper, a dinner plate can come in handy for this. Adhere to the middle of the layout.

Cut a strip of the chevron patterned paper and flag both ends with the pattern. Adhere it to the layout using foam tape. Find and die cut out the decorative journal block, and the yellow mini tag with the coordinating dies. Cut the scalloped layer from white cardstock. Set aside for now. Mat the 4x6 photo in white and yellow cardstock. Add photo corners to the photo. Adhere the matted photo to the layout using 3D foam squares. Add the mini tag and decorative journal block to the right-hand side of the matted photo. Add a bow of burlap string to the mini tag. Add the letter sticker title to the right of the matted photo.

Using the Leafy Accents stamps and dies, stamp and die cut 1 set of the large swirly leaves, and 4 of the 3 leaf image using dark green ink (Seaweed). Add color to the leaves using ink and daubers (Green Apple). Stamp and die cut 1 set of the large flowers using dark pink ink (Berrylicious). Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the medium flowers using dark pink and dark teal ink (Berrylicious, Broken China). Stamp and die cut 3 sets of the small flowers in yellow ink (Crushed Curry), dark blue ink (Sailboat), and orange ink (Spiced Marmalade). Add color to the flowers using ink and daubers: Yellow (Crushed Curry), Orange (Spiced Marmalade), Teal (Seafoam), Blue (Faded Jeans), Pink (Candy).

Stamp and die cut 5 sets of the button images in the same 5 colors as the flowers. Add color using ink and daubers, again using the same colors as the flowers. Using 3D Crystal Lacquer add adhesive on top of all of the button images and let dry. Shape all of the flowers using the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold. Shape all of the leaves using the 3D Leafy Accents Shaping Mold. For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at Assemble the layered flowers and add a button to the middle of each using a small 3D foam square.

Add the flowers to the layout first, in clusters. Then add the leaves using adhesive dots. Add a few more single buttons to the floral clusters.
