  1. Print four 3″ x 3″ photos and one 2″ x 2″ photo (to go under the frame embellishment shown above).
  2. Set aside two of the designer paper patterns from Kit #18 you like best and the Soft Mint Cardstock. 
  3. Cut one sheet of the designer paper and the cardstock into two 6-3/4″ x 9″ triangles. You will have two triangles of patterned paper and two triangles of cardstock, making four in total. 
    • Tip: Fold the top left corner of your paper 90 degrees downward, meeting the right side of the page and forming a square. Then cut the square diagonally in half.
  4. Next, take the remaining designer paper and cut two 6-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ rectangles.
  5. Adhere the triangle pieces to your Happy Album pages alternatively, creating a square, as seen below.
  6. Adhere the two rectangle pieces to the bottom of each page.
  7. Lastly, adhere your photos and embellishments from Kit #18 to your layout and use the extra space to journal about your happy memories!



There are many ways for you to make this layout unique – change the quote, use different patterns or change the placement of the photos. The end result regardless of what you try? A page that makes you smile!
