To create the strawberry, you will need:

Step 1: Punch a heart with the Raspberry Cardstock and the Double Heart Punch. You will use the inside heart piece.

Step 2: Next, punch the Leaf Green Cardstock with the Embossed Trio Flower Punch. Use the largest leaf to cut out three of the stems for the top piece and two of the stems for the bottom piece.

Step 3: Use Repositionable Adhesive to attach them to the top of the strawberry.

  1. I agree with LP. Finally more than 2 pictures on a page. I rarely do layouts with less than 4 pictures on a page. Like also that the accents are not overdone. Just enough to add a splash of color, but not take the focus away from the pictures. Love the strawberries…will have to use that one.

  2. Love the simple clean layout. It definitely enhaces your photos. I too like layout ideas with multiple photos ‘spots’. I typically have 5 – 6 photos per page and I appreciate layout ideas that make room for that many. Love the strawberry… Very creative!
