Step 1 Use 12"x12" cardstock for the base of your layout (sample used is brown). Punch fourteen 1½" circles in coordinating patterned papers.
Step 2 Draw a light pencil line ½" from the right side of the page. Align and adhere six circles vertically as shown, leaving a 1½" space for the horizontal banner background.
Step 3 Cut blue cardstock to 10½" square and round two left corners. Glue this to the page, covering up half of the circles along the right side. The result is a scalloped border down the page.
Step 4 Cut green cardstock 1½"x12" and adhere it across the page as shown, covering the gap between the circles.
Step 5 Banner: Fold the punched circles in half. Arrange them in swag curves as shown. Embellish with bows.
Step 6 Photos measure approximately one at 4"x4" and two at 4"x6" and are matted on kraft cardstock.
Step 7 Cut kraft cardstock to 4¼"x2¾". Adhere to top right for journaling and place your title directly below.
Step 8 Cut two patterned papers to ¾"x3" and cut into banners to embellish the flower.
Step 9 Add a green journal strip to the bottom left corner of the page, if desired.
