Step 1
Select a print from the stack. Cut it to 29.2 x 29.2 cm (11 ½”x11 ½”) and adhere it to the centre of your first 30.4 x 30.4 cm (12"x12") grey cardstock sheet.

Step 2
Select 2 contrasting prints from the stack. Cut a strip from the first one measuring 1.9 x 29.2 cm (¾”x11 ½”). Adhere this vertically to the centre of the page. Cut 3, 1.3 x 29.2 cm (½”x11 ½”) strips from the other sheet. Punch along one side of each strip with the decorative border punch. Adhere the first 2 strips vertically on either side of the centre strip, scallops facing out. Adhere the last strip vertically to the left side of the page, left edge flush with the left edge of the larger square and the scallop facing in.

Step 3
Cut a 12.1 x 17.1 cm (4 ¾”x6 ¾”) rectangle from the same print used for the scalloped strips. Cut a 7.6 x 16.5 cm (3”x6 ½”) strip from the 2nd sheet of grey cardstock. Adhere the grey cardstock strip horizontally to the centre of the printed rectangle. Adhere the photo in the centre of this grouping, and then adhere the matted photo to the page in the middle of the right side.

Step 4
Embellish your page by cutting out several strips with words and sentiment squares. Lay them out and arrange until your page looks as desired. Adhere each piece in place, adding adhesive foam squares behind some of the elements to give the page a 3-dimensional look.


Change up the prints, rearrange the elements, or add more items to your page while designing to give it your desired style and look.
