Select two contrasting 12"x12" prints. Leave the darker print as is; cut the remaining print to 11½"x11½". Adhere to the center of the first print.
Take out three solid colors. Cut a ½"x10" strip from the first color; adhere horizontally to the center of the page, outside edge flush with the right side of the page. *Note: You will need to lift the left side of the strip in the next strip.
Cut a 4"x2" strip from your second solid, cut a fringe along the 4" side, going up 1" into your paper. Adhere this underneath your first strip, 1" in from the left and ¼" above the top edge.
Mat your photo to the third solid, leaving ¼" of cardstock showing around all sides. Adhere to the page, 1½" from the right and 4" from the top.
Punch six flowers from assorted prints. Take your paintbrush and apply a light coat of water to the back side of each flower. When your flowers dry enough to fold without ripping, bend them up together. This can be done by folding them all together or scrunching them at the base.
While these are drying, take the time to type up your desired text. Be sure to format the numbers and word strips to fit in the available space. Print these out.
Punch out your numbers using the 1" circle punch. Punch out three coordinating circles (preferably from the same prints used for the flowers) using the 1½" circle punch. Adhere the numbers, one each, to the centers of your respective circles. Ink the edges with your ink pad as desired.
Lay your numbers and word strips on the page, arranging them until you find your desired layout. Adhere in place.
Take your flowers and open each one up slightly until you achieve your desired look. Adhere them together in groups of two with hot glue. Finish off the look by adhering a group of beads to the center of each flower. Adhere flowers in place next to the picture, one on one side, and two on the other.
• Use numbers to guide your journaling, or type a paragraph to detail the day you are scrapbooking. Make sure to change up fonts and add emphasis by underlining, bolding, or italicizing your text.
• To give your page more dimensions, use adhesive foam squares to attach your numbers and/or flowers in place.
